Today’s Action: Send your Members of Congress home with a holiday message

Last night, this Republican Congress ostensibly voted to keep the government funded through the rest of the year. But let’s be honest. They really voted to go home for Christmas and put off America’s problems until next year.

And they’ll go home with

  • an insufficient Band-Aid on the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that serves nine million kids,
  • Dreamers still facing the threat of deportation,
  • telecom giants drooling over the prospect of seizing a Net Neutrality-free internet,
  • and Mitch McConnell’s promise to help Susan Collins stabilize healthcare markets looking about as valid as a degree from Trump University.

So while Members of Congress will be enjoying Christmas at home with their families, millions of Americans will be worried about their futures because of Republicans’ recklessness.

Most Congressional offices will close at the end of the day for the year, so let’s all give our Senators and Rep one last 2017 call at 202.224.3121. Pick one thing from this list (because that singular focus is the best way to influence Members) and tell them when they get back to Washington next year you’re counting on them to:

  • End the Dreamer deportation threat,
  • Fully fund CHIP,
  • Restore Net Neutrality and our free, open internet,
  • Or reinstate the ACA’s individual mandate to stabilize insurance markets.

If you’re calling a Democrat, thank them for putting up a strong, united front against the threat of Trump and his enablers.

If you’re talking to a Republican office, be sure to wish them happy holidays. Because — after the destructive way they’ve governed this year and the work we’re planning for next year — next holiday season, they’ll be looking for new jobs.

And to each of you in the OD Action community: thank you for all of the work you’ve put in this year. Together we have beaten back much of Trump’s agenda. We’ve had many victories to celebrate this year, and the best news is: we’re just getting started.

Happy Holidays!
