Today’s Action: Tell the House to pass H.R.1

Our new House’s agenda has been disrupted since January as Democrats held Trump’s wall at bay. But now, Dems are moving forward (even as they continue to battle Trump’s destructive budget agenda) with their first major piece of legislation…and it’s awesome.

H.R.1 is a sweeping, powerful overhaul that seeks to return financial transparency, ethical accountability, and voter rights to our nation. We need everything in this bill to heal the massive damage the GOP has done the past decade, from empowering corporations over individuals to Jim Crow-reminiscent voter restrictions.

Call or email your Representative and ask them to cosponsor and push forward H.R.1: For the People Act of 2019. If your Rep has already cosponsored, thank them — and if they haven’t, demand that they stand up for the rights of those they represent.

If you want to give your Rep some specific items you support in H.R.1, here are a few highlights:

  • It requires presidential and vice-presidential candidates to release 10 years of tax returns, which would be posted for public viewing and examination for conflict of interest.
  • It stops “revolving door” politics that allows corporate lobbyists to influence legislation, and former politicians to quickly slide into well-paid influencer positions.
  • It returns the Voter Rights Act to its full power, protecting marginalized communities from gerrymandering, voter restriction laws, and flat-out fraud.
  • It overturns Citizens United, thereby stopping Super PACs from spending billions of anonymous “dark money” dollars each election cycle, passed through by special interest organizations.

And so much more. Not bad for the first bill of #WhoseHouseOurHouse…

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Representative and demand their support for H.R.1. If they have already cosponsored, tell them thank you (Reps need gratitude, too)! If they haven’t cosponsored, ask them why they don’t support voter rights and financial transparency.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to tell Howard Schultz not to run for President, 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.
