Democrats, Independents, and interested citizens who are concerned about the destructive actions of Republicans, have had victories that can change the tide of Republican destruction – taking over legislative bodies is key to reversing Republican moves to hurt ordinary people to reward their masters – the rich right wing, like Hedge fund owners, the infamous Koch brothers, and their ilk. The Budget, which removed $500 billion from Medicare and 1.5 billion from Medicaid is being used as an “offset” for the tax bill (among other destructive acts).
The Tax Bill repeals important Affordable Care Act provisions; taxes employees at a higher rate than independent contractors; eliminates state tax and mortgage deductions (except for corporations) and more…. Screwing Blue states, employees, students and working people. Republicans have made it clear they intend to cut billions from Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. Ready to fight? Visit TrumpTaxScam.org for everything you need to take action.
Need more? How about the destruction of clean energy incentives, repealing pollution laws, raising fees while cutting national parks and monuments, repealing environmental protections that protect public health and our fellow creatures (who don’t vote, so, who cares?)
We have had fires, floods and Donald Trump this year. Had enough?
Call to Action:
The 2018 election represents opportunities to change Congress, stop the legislative destruction of our courts, economy, environment, and throw out the bums who have foisted so much pain on us.
Selective targeting of Republicans who are leaders, committee chairs, or just simply horrid (Trumpers) and who occupy districts which can be contested are fair game. Such liars as Paul Ryan (the strongest advocate for benefit cuts to seniors and working people) are prime targets.
There are many ways to throw the bums out – Phone banking , precinct walking, social medial mobilization, and small dollar contributions can tip the balance against high dollar donations, and gerrymandered districts, as we have seen many times before.
Holding local elected officials feet to the fire is also a very effective way to impede and reverse the innumerable damaging actions taken by Republicans. But only if we keep up the pressure. Call your legislators and express your points of view.
I will be highlighting electoral contests that feature terrible Republicans and progressive Democrats, in races that can have profound impact on the shape and agendas of the next congress. For example, Randy Brice is opposing Paul Ryan in the 2018 Elections. A progressive democrat, iron worker. and community activist who is running an agressive and popular campaign. Taking Ryan’s seat means Ryan cannot be 3rd in line for the Presidency. Interested?
