The Consolidated Oregon Indivisible Network (COIN)

Twenty-one Indivisible groups spanning the State of Oregon have signed an open letter to the Governor and the Legislature outlining their priorities – putting people and small businesses first. The Special Session expected to convene LAST WEEK to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic is on hold. We will update you here as new information becomes available.

Here is the link to the letter: COIN Letter


TRUMP’S CRIME FAMILY ART OF THE DEAL IS KILLING AMERICANS


Crime syndicates demand loyalty and take care of their own.  Only their own.

Trump has denied vital equipment to the governors of states hardest hit by COVID-19.  Shipments to some have been intercepted. Others have had orders canceled and redirected to the federal government. He has, however, equipped his political allies.  Florida received 100% of supplies requested from FEMA.  Democratic-leaning states received only about 17%. 

Trump sees being a “war-time president” as another tool to steal from the American people. So he’s again bullying and enraging some of our most stalwart allies, seizing their equipment shipments overseas. Much of the life-saving equipment brought into the US by the federal government is turned over to private markets, whose profits skyrocket because desperate states are left to bid against each other.  

Trump, the master of projection, has actually accused health care professionals of selling ventilators and PPE, which their lives depend on, “out the back door.” Someone is profiting from this tragedy, but it’s not our front-line health workers; it’s the price gouging profiteers making up the supply chain.

Congress should be in session and working to protect the people they represent by investigating Trump’s ongoing abuse of power and his politicization of the pandemic. Congress must put people before profit.

Trumpism is State-Sponsored Organized Crime!

Trumpism is Killing Americans!

Get Back to Work, Congress!

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling today because . . .
