TALKING POINTS :
1- #TrumpTaxScam will likely see a vote in the Senate this week —a bill that threatens the financial security of millions of Americans, could destroy health care, increases the deficit, and furthers the divide between Trump’s swamp of super-wealthy hanger-ons and all the rest of us. We will talk with both Senate offices about the bill and stress once again our outrage over it, demanding that they do more than simply cast a NO vote.
2- CHIP still isn’t funded and kids are in trouble. We keep talking about it and nothing is happening. What’s the problem and how do we fix it?
3- #TrumpThreatLevel is frightening, and getting worse every day. HIs handling of global matters puts us at risk for nuclear war; his cozying up with strong men threatens our very democracy; his intentional work to purge diplomats around the world takes away our strongest voices, giving him a global bully pulpit; and his ongoing move towards a racist, nationalist agenda threatens everything we believe in. These are not distractions. They are the whole ballgame, and we cannot ignore them. What are our MOCs doing every day to stand up against these intentional, devastating moves by this administration? We can’t just go from bill to bill, vote to vote. They are the last line of defense. What is their strategy?
