TALKING POINTS :
WHERE ARE THE KIDS? Despite the promises and the words, families are not being reunified and the government continues its under-handed and deceitful double-talk about the state of these families and its policies surrounding families at the border. We will ask our MOCs to continue to speak loudly and forcefully, to visit the detention centers, and to actively assist those who are trying to bring these families back together. This is a humanitarian crisis and we expect our MOCs to treat it that way. It’s not politics as usual.
SCOTUS — THE GOP CHANGED THE RULES. Now they should have to live by them. We will ask our Senators where they stand on the SCOTUS nomination and why Democrats can’t adhere to a singular strategy to stand up against the GOP’s manipulation and tyranny. We will also remind them that the GOP’s talk of civility is yet another gaslighting strategy and that it’s our responsibility to stand up to their tactics and continue to speak loudly for the values we hold dear.
AND EVERYTHING ELSE! From healthcare to the tariffs to North Korea’s latest nuclear moves to the upcoming Putin meeting, this administration is wreaking havoc on America here at home and crippling us on the world stage. We’ll ask our MOCs what their priorities are for the remainder of the legislative year and what they are doing now to preserve the domestic services people depend on and salvage our relationships with allies around the world.
