DAYS UNTIL BALLOTS DUE: FOUR!!!


CALL. VOLUNTEER. VOTE!


We are now marking our ballots for the midterm elections, only 4 days away. We are working our hardest to ensure that we have a new Congress that will represent the people, not one favoring the super-wealthy and corporations. But, we know that as soon as the elections are over, Trump and the Republicans will try to push through their destructive pet projects, as we’ve outlined in earlier daily actions:

  • Tax Scam 2.0 – which will add another $2 trillion to the projected $1.5 trillion deficit resulting from Tax Scam 1.0 by cementing in place tax breaks for the wealthiest, on top of those provided in Tax Scam 1.0 — 9/19/2018
  • Cuts to the social safety net (Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security) – which the Republicans claim are necessary because of the tremendous deficits caused by Tax Scam 1.0 – 10/24/2018
  • Repealing the ACA – which the Republicans want to accomplish if it can (although it is now campaigning on protecting coverage for pre-existing conditions!) — 10/24/2018
  • Cuts to Food Stamps – by enshrining the cruel provisions in the Republican House Farm Bill that will cut SNAP – 9/19/2018

Don’t Let This Happen!

**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS WYDEN AND MERKLEY:

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city/town], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because we must act together to prevent the Senate from passing the House Tax Scam 2.0 bill (H.R. 6760) and using it —along with the first Tax Scam— as an excuse to destroy our social safety net. Cutting food stamps that feed hungry people in order to finance massive tax cuts for the wealthy is immoral and unAmerican. Likewise, we must safeguard the ACA from the Trump regime’s attacks. Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:

“My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and voter living in [city/town], ZIP code [number]. I’m calling today because I am OUTRAGED by Greg Walden’s unfailing support of the Trump regime’s despicable policies. Please tell him that nothing he says can change his voting record. Greg has apparently adopted Trump’s playbook of telling the same lies over and over hoping to keep his base in the dark. Such a shame to see him sinking to this dishonest tactic. I [have already voted] [will vote] for Jamie McLeod-Skinner in order to put a true representative of the people in Oregon Congressional District 2 in Washington. It’s long past time for Greg to retire.”
