Call to Action: December 28 and 29, 2017



With the exception of the Trump Tax Scam, Trump and the GOP had little luck in enacting any major legislation in 2017. Much of this was due to actions in the Senate where the minority party is able to exercise some power—preventing some of the more extreme portions of the GOP agenda from becoming law.

Our Senators did us proud!

They fought for so many issues important to us and to other Oregonians and were particularly stalwart in battling to save the Affordable Care Act and to stop the Tax Scam. They held numerous town halls all over the state. Their staff welcomed us to their offices every week and provided follow up on our “asks.”

There will always be ups and downs in the relationship between a constituent and an elected representative. We must work hard to make our needs known, and they must strive to hear us. We may not always see eye to eye, but we hope that both of us act in good faith.

And, to show our good faith, please consider sending our Senators a postcard this holiday season. Thank them for their persistence in resisting the Trump agenda and let them know we will be calling again–very soon.

Thank you, Senators Wyden and Merkley!


Senators Wyden and Merkley stood up for Oregonians by fighting against the repeal of the ACA and trying to prevent passage of the Trump Tax Scam. Please consider sending a postcard of thanks, with reflections on the past year and/or hopes for the year ahead.
