Today’s Action: Tell the Senate to pass the Inflation Reduction Act!

Senators Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer sent shockwaves through Washington when they announced their historic climate and social investment deal, dubbed the “Inflation Reduction Act.” It contains the largest climate package in US history, $369 billion, and staves off what would be a disastrous health insurance premium hike by canceling the scheduled expiration of COVID-era ACA subsidies.

Passing this bill and delivering a surprise win for President Biden would be a huge boost for Democrats right before the pivotal midterm elections. But far more importantly, it would be a huge win for the the American people and our planet. But if even one expected YES vote becomes a NO, the bill fails.

That’s why we need to ensure all our senators will support the package during this week’s vote. The IRA is projected to reduce American emissions by 40% — 1 billion tons of carbon — bring in $729 billion in new revenue, reduce the deficit, lower prescription drug prices, and extend Affordable Care Act subsidies through 2024 — all without raising taxes on working Americans.

There is zero reason this bill should not be signed into law as soon as possible. The future of our planet and possibly our democracy could be at stake.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your senators and demand they pass the historic Inflation Reduction Act!

Today’s Action: Take action to help Kentucky flood victims!

Unprecedented flooding has taken at least 16 lives in Eastern Kentucky since Wednesday night, with the death toll predicted to rise significantly. By the end of this tragedy, hundreds of families will have been displaced and their hometown will never be the same. Governor Beshear indicated that most of the survivors could “lose just about everything.” After 300 rescues, there are still more to be made.

For us here at OD Action, this destruction is personal. Kentucky is our home base, it’s an area that is already disenfranchised, exploited, and without proper support from negligent Republican legislators and corporate predators. Our neighbors are without food, water, and shelter. Many of these people have no idea what their home now looks like. With even more potential climate disasters on the way, the people of Eastern Kentucky need help to bounce back from this horrible tragedy as quickly as possible.

Make a donation to Gov. Beshear’s Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund or check out this verified Amazon wish list for flood survivors! You can find even more ways to help here, but however you decide to — it makes all the difference. 

Even just sharing the donation links with your friends and family could make a huge impact.

Today’s Action: Tell transportation Secretary Pete Buttigeg to put the airlines in their place!

Anyone who’s been to an airport recently knows what an absolute mess American air transportation is these days. Thanks to a shortage of pilots, air traffic control issues, and general staffing issues post-COVID, airlines are scrambling to staff flights, leading to tens of thousands of cancellations.

This isn’t a surprise to the airlines. Flights are scheduled months in advance, meaning that these airlines knew they didn’t have the people to staff them, but they accepted people’s money anyway and then left them out in the cold when the time came for them to travel. To make matters worse, in 2021 they refused to refund a staggering $10 billion dollars to American travelers who had their flights canceled.

Secretary Pete Buttigeg announced the conclusion of investigations into a few unnamed airlines who canceled flights and failed to give refunds to passengers, but there is still no information on whether or not passengers will receive their refunds at all. 

Email the Department of Transportation and demand Secretary Pete Buttigeg fight to get airline passengers their refunds!

Enough is enough. During the pandemic, the airline companies got a $54 billion bailout from the US taxpayer, and they proceeded to lay off 56,000 people anyway. Those people never got replaced, and now the US traveler who paid for the airline bailouts is getting ripped off and abused by these monopolistic behemoths. 

Despite knowing that their teams are not performing at pre-pandemic level and that they are lacking in staff, airlines continue to knowingly oversell their capacity at the expense of American families. Secretary Buttigeg promises that enforcement action will come in the following weeks, but we need to know that full refunds for slighted passengers will be included in that action — and that these exploitative, greedy business practices will come to an immediate end.

Email the Department of Transportation and call for a speedy resolution!

McConnell cares more about Brett Kavanaugh than America's children

In response to an article in the June 10 C-J in which Mitch McConnell proposes protection for Supreme Court Justices, I have some additional proposals:

  1. Give the justices guns, so good guys have guns
  2. They should only have one door to their homes.
  3. They should have an armed Judicial “Resource Officer” in their homes at all times.
  4. They should practice active shooter drills with their families every week.

If it’s good enough for our kids, it’s good enough for the Supreme Court Justices!

Supreme Court has voted to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows

The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and made its way out.

The draft opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision – Planned Parenthood v. Casey – that largely maintained the right. “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito writes.

Today’s Action: Pass federal abortion protections now!

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has indicated that the Senate will finally vote on the critical Women’s Health Protection Act next Monday – which means this could be one of our last shots to save the right to abortion through Congress. 

Since the US Supreme Court signaled that they’ll potentially overturn the decision of Roe v. Wade, several GOP-controlled states have put in motion 15-week abortion bans, including Arizona and Mississippi. In all, 20 states have laws at the ready that will ban or thoroughly restrict abortion should Roe v. Wade be overturned. Many states have already passed laws that stall abortion access and close clinics. With a six-justice conservative majority, including three partisan operatives appointed by Donald Trump, saving the future of reproductive freedom likely falls to the United States Congress. 

The WHPA would finally address the relentless attacks on reproductive rights by Republicans. It would protect abortion access at the national level without medically unnecessary and, frankly, cruel restrictions, such as waiting periods, mandatory ultrasounds, and biased counseling. 

Call (202-224-3121) or write your senators to demand an end to the filibuster and the passage of federal abortion protections immediately through the Women’s Health Protection Act!

The GOP’s radical war on women’s health is intensifying across the country as conservative legislators continue advancing “copycat” bills through state legislatures and the Supreme Court threatens to overturn Roe v. Wade. We urgently need our leaders to band together to protect a woman’s fundamental right to healthcare — and our last chance to do that for the foreseeable future is coming up on Monday. 

But like much of the progressive agenda, the WHPA cannot currently pass the Senate with the filibuster in play. We need every single person contacting their senators, demanding an end to the archaic filibuster and a resumption of their legislative obligations.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your senators and tell them to end the filibuster and pass the WHPA, before conservative state governments further gut a woman’s right to choose!
