Today’s Action: Eliminate the Senate filibuster

Why is Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren calling for the end of the filibuster in the Senate? Because she’s seen the destruction up close. As a U.S. Senator, she’s watched the complete shutdown of our legislative and democratic process, thanks to its continued abuse under Mitch McConnell and the GOP.

In the Senate, the period for debate on legislation has no automatic cut-off; 60 (out of 100) votes are required to end debate and move on to the actual vote. What does this mean? That a minority of 41 votes can keep the period of debate endlessly open, effectively killing any shot for legislation that would pass the actual vote with a simple majority of 51.

Like making lynching a federal offense…which was killed over 200 times and took nearly 100 years to pass the Senate in 2018, thanks to filibustering, racist, conservative Senators.

Call or email your Senators and your favorite presidential candidate, and tell them you support ending the filibuster. Demand the Senate embrace actual democratic practices where the majority’s voice can move forward with common-sense public demands.

So many basic popular voter demands, such as background checks for gun purchases, combating climate change, and consumer-friendly healthcare reform, would easily pass the Senate with a simple majority. But time and time again, they have been shut down due by the filibuster, no small part in thanks to Mitch McConnell’s abject glee for the tool.

The filibuster was never intended by our nation’s Founders. Rather it is a loophole in rules providing for unlimited Senate debate that were exploited to preserve segregation and legally mandated bigotry in the 20th century. Over the last hundred years its use has grown to frequently deny the will of the majority.

If our future Democratic president and Senate are to have any chance of undoing the damage of the last three years, he or she will need a way through the historic block of GOP Senators who’ve built their careers on the legacy of white supremacy. And that means ending the filibuster, once and for all.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and your presidential candidate of choice, and demand they work to end the filibuster in the Senate…because, right now, our legislative body in the land is utterly unwilling to be democratic.

Today’s Action: Meet the candidates, part 2: Bernie Sanders

Now that we’re through the first two Democratic Presidential candidate debates, the field is about to narrow significantly; qualifications are much more strict. So far, nine candidates have qualified, so let’s take a closer look! Last week, we introduced Elizabeth Warren…this week, we’re looking at…

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders: Sanders is currently tied with Elizabeth Warren for second in polls nationwide. The policies he campaigned for during 2016 and championed since have become a springboard for the progressive movement that has fueled Democrats through the Trump administration.

Medicare For All: This now-common Democratic universal healthcare policy has been popular in progressive circles for more than a decade, but Sanders’s full-throated advocacy has taken the universal healthcare plan mainstream. A single-payer system that covers every single American, allows patients to choose and keep their preferred doctors, eliminates premiums, co-pays, and deductibles, provides dental, vision, and nursing home care, covers most prescription drugs, and saves taxpayers $350 billion a year by reducing administrative complexities.

Workers Rights: Sanders has been a leader for the rights of the working and middle class, beginning with pushing for a $15/hour minimum wage before it was popular even among many Democrats. He has also crafted policy for universal childcare, equal pay for women, paid family and medical leave for all workers, and stronger union organizing.

Jobs For All: Looking to FDR for inspiration, Sanders has plans to give a job to every American, via his other progressive initiatives. Millions of jobs required to update our infrastructure and build a 100% sustainable green energy system. And many more to provide free universal childcare and care for seniors.

Free Education: The College For All Act would provide $48 billion annually to support free college attendance, making higher degrees available for students regardless of income level. And, Sanders plans to cancel crippling student debt and cap interest rates for future borrowers, among a ‘wealth’ of other debt-lowering solutions.

Critics say… He’s too idealistic with lofty but expensive, unrealistic goals. He’s been accused of dividing Democrats and criticized for a lack of accomplishments during his 28 years in the House and Senate. After a far stronger than expected showing in 2016, many are pointing to a loss of support three years later.

And finally… Bernie’s profound influence on the Democratic Party is undeniable, and OD Action welcomes the leftward shift and refusal to accept corporate talking points. His populist appeal to many working class swing voters remains strong despite the conventional wisdom that his liberal views are disqualifying. Sanders has already shown that true progressive ideas speak to American families, and Democrats across the country have taken note. Whether his leadership of a movement can translate into electoral success remains to be seen, but you can bet we’ll be watching.

Stay tuned for more candidate profiles in the coming weeks leading up to the third round of debates, on September 12 and 13!

Today’s Action: Tell Congress to #DefundHate and cut ICE/CBP funding in the September budget

Last week, Trump’s deportation machine, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducted the largest-ever raid in a single state, targeting six food processing plants in Mississippi. They detained nearly 700 workers and hundreds of children — many arriving home from their first day of the school year to find themselves alone without parents.

ICE did not warn Mississippi’s Child Protective Services of the impending raid, leaving the agency scrambling the find temporary care for the abandoned children. Nor did they give advanced warning to the schools, meaning school districts also had little time to arrange overnight care. In fact, ICE made no guarantees that any child would not be left to fend for themselves in the wake of their destructive force…so some were left alone.

Trump’s legacy of family separation continues. But we can slow it, if Congress cuts funding to ICE and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Call or email your Members of Congress. Tell them Trump’s reign of terror against immigrants must be stopped by cutting funding to ICE and CBP in the September budget.

The scope of the damage wrought by ICE and CBP is astonishing:

  • There are more than 53,500 immigrants in detention right now, and 24 have died in-custody since Trump took office.
  • Trump has detained at least 40,900 children since the start of the year, thousands of whom will now be placed in Fort Sill, a former WWII Japanese Internment Camp.
  • More than 8,400 immigrants have been placed in solitary confinement since 2012, as punishment by our country’s deportation machine, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Meanwhile, Trump has requested from Congress a budget of billions MORE to fund the Department of Homeland Security, AKA his border terror toolbox. He wants more family jails, faster deportations, and an expansion of ICE and CBP.

Congress sets the budget. Congress has the power. And we control the House. Tell Democrats to stand strong and ask Republicans where their consciences went.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they cut the funds for ICE and CBP in September budget talks. Remind them that every dollar toward Trump’s deportation machine equals complicity in his persecution of immigrants.

Today’s Action: Family separation is STILL happening and needs to stop NOW

Last summer, after massive public outcry, Trump signed an executive order to stop the family separation policies he created at the border. Since then, he has separated at least 900 children from their parents.

Trump is relying on a technicality he included in his executive order, that a child may be separated if the parent poses a risk. And he’s abused this technicality far beyond any reasonable line. For example:

  • Removing three young girls from a father who tested HIV positive, without giving any explanation of this “risk”
  • Separating a baby from her father because her diaper was dirty
  • Keeping a daughter from her father on false doubts of his paternity…resulting in the daughter being sexually assaulted under federal custody while separated
  • A father losing his son due to the father’s speech impediment
  • Separating families for traffic violations, property damage, and other minor “crimes” that happened many years ago, and often allegations without actual convictions

We are so angry, and our leaders should be, too. Call or email your Members of Congress and state representatives and read these examples to them. Tell them Trump has separated 900 families since promising to stop – and it’s up to Congress to fix this monstrous policy.

More than half of the separations have included children under the age of 10…nearly 200 have included children under five. And five children have died in custody.

Their living conditions are beyond inhumane, with countless examples of 8-year-olds caring for toddlers, no access to showers or clean diapers, overcrowding, and frigid temperatures. History will not remember kindly those in power who allowed these policies – IF we keep the heat on, IF we make sure it is not normalized, IF we fight back.

Email or call your Members of Congress (202.224.3121) and state representatives. Share the news that a predicted 1000 children will be separated from their parents by the end of the year, and ask them what they’re doing to fight Trump’s policies of terror at the border.

Today’s Action: Voter registration events this weekend to keep Trump a one-term president!

Regardless of which candidate we end up with in November 2020, there’s one thing we know for certain: we’re going to need every single Democratic voter turning out on Election Day to kick Trump out of office.

Here’s something else we know (all too well): winning the popular vote won’t necessarily win the electoral college. We’ve got to start mobilizing voters NOW in the key “Super States” that we must win to defeat Trump: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin.

SwingLeft is holding nationwide events all weekend to boost Democratic voter registration in these Super States – and you can join in, regardless of where you live.

Enter your zip code into SwingLeft’s event portal to find a Super States voter registration party near you this weekend! Whether you’re canvassing in-person or writing letters to unregistered voters, every new voter brings us one step closer to keeping Trump a one-term president. Can’t attend? Write letters from home!

And pushing out Trump won’t be the only positive effect of your efforts; we’re also looking to flip the Senate blue. Six Super States (Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Maine, North Carolina, and Texas) will all face contentious Senatorial run-offs, and we only need to win four new seats to bump Mitch McConnell out as Majority Leader.

Make the commitment now to proactively help Democrats in Super States – they’re going to need all of our support to battle years of gerrymandering and voter suppression that has kept Democratic voices silenced in regions where Democratic values are most needed.

Check out SwingLeft’s event portal to find a voter registration event near you this weekend! Help defeat Trump and McConnell in Super States no matter where you live. No events nearby? Send letters to unregistered voters from home!

Today’s Action: Voter registration events this weekend to keep Trump a one-term president!

Regardless of which candidate we end up with in November 2020, there’s one thing we know for certain: we’re going to need every single Democratic voter turning out on Election Day to kick Trump out of office.

Here’s something else we know (all too well): winning the popular vote won’t necessarily win the electoral college. We’ve got to start mobilizing voters NOW in the key “Super States” that we must win to defeat Trump: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin.

SwingLeft is holding nationwide events all weekend to boost Democratic voter registration in these Super States – and you can join in, regardless of where you live.

Enter your zip code into SwingLeft’s event portal to find a Super States voter registration party near you this weekend! Whether you’re canvassing in-person or writing letters to unregistered voters, every new voter brings us one step closer to keeping Trump a one-term president. Can’t attend? Write letters from home!

And pushing out Trump won’t be the only positive effect of your efforts; we’re also looking to flip the Senate blue. Six Super States (Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Maine, North Carolina, and Texas) will all face contentious Senatorial run-offs, and we only need to win four new seats to bump Mitch McConnell out as Majority Leader.

Make the commitment now to proactively help Democrats in Super States – they’re going to need all of our support to battle years of gerrymandering and voter suppression that has kept Democratic voices silenced in regions where Democratic values are most needed.

Check out SwingLeft’s event portal to find a voter registration event near you this weekend! Help defeat Trump and McConnell in Super States no matter where you live. No events nearby? Send letters to unregistered voters from home!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to tell presidential candidates to pledge real action to reverse climate change and Trump’s reckless reign, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
