TALKING POINTS :
1- HEALTH CARE is back. Again. And it keeps getting worse. We want to hear from our MOCs about their work right now to stop this thing once and for all. (And if you’ve got friends/family in Alaska, West Virginia, and Maine, please call those senators, thank them for standing tall last time, and let them know we expect it again.)
2- It’s AUGUST RECESS. When and where can we meet with our MOCs while they are back in the state?
3- TRUMP’s BUDGET puts tax dollars towards his mass deportation machine, while slashing things like education, environmental protection, and healthcare. That’s making America stupid and cruel, not great. We’ll demand that our MOCs take action now against this attempted sleight of hand ($23 billion for things like detention centers and the wall) and do their job to keep his budget from bankrupting everything this country stands for.
4- And lastly, FIRING MUELLER would create a constitutional crisis. We CANNOT stand by while these conversations continue as though it is a possibility. We expect our MOCs to use their voices loudly to protest any suggestion of removing Mr. Mueller from his important work. (And we will let them know that we will be in the streets within hours should Trump attempt any such move - and we expect them right there with us.)
