Today’s Action: Make Paul Ryan pay for tone deaf tweet

This weekend, despite claiming to have passed a “middle class tax cut,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) confirmed what we already knew: Ryan and his fellow Republicans in Washington could not care less about America’s working families.

He cares so little in fact, that he couldn’t even be bothered to find out what would be meaningful to working people and bragged on Twitter about one woman taking home an addition $1.50 per week in her paycheck.

As if a buck fifty is worth Republicans’ assault on affordable healthcare and education — to say nothing of our national integrity and America’s ostensible promise of equal opportunity — while people like the Trump and the Koch Brothers (who rewarded Ryan with $500,000 in contributions), are getting hundreds of millions from the tax scam after inheriting fortunes.

Naturally, Ryan deleted the tweet. But don’t think for a second that he’s learned his lesson. So let’s teach him.

Take a few minutes today and write a letter to the editor for your favorite local paper and share what the “buck-fifty Ryan/Trump tax scam” means to you. Let your community know what you are able to get for the glorified 22 cents per day and compare it to what you’ve lost because of this Republican government.

Local newspaper letters are a great way to break through our media silos and reach our communities. Feel free to be creative, but try to focus on just one way that Trump and his Congressional enablers are personally impacting your life. Also, we know it’s hard, but please try to keep it clean.

Most newspapers make it very easy to submit a letter online, but if you’re at a loss for where to start, here are a list of 96 papers around the country and how to submit letters as well as OD Action’s best practices guide for writing letters to the editor.

Clearly, Republican politicians have no idea what regular people are going through in this country. So let your community know that you do — and that you’ll be voting for it this November.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling Trump if he wants to drill off-shore he should start at Mar a Lago, and join the vast majority of Americans demanding Congress protect Dreamers NOW!
