This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 76

Trump Watch:

Trump has quietly signed a bill allowing your ISP to collect and sell your dataIronic behavior from a man in a fever dream about wiretapping.

Perhaps more troubling is recent revelations that not only is Trump going to continue to support large fossil fuel companies, he is going to ABSOLUTELY GUT the EPA.  $2.5 billion in cuts proposed.  This will remove ALL climate research, and slash the budget by 31%, laying off 25% of the employees.  This is the equivalent of sticking your head in the sand, then taking out a gun and shooting yourself in the chest.  This will destroy the environment, this will cripple america’s economy, this will kill millions of people.  Make no mistake, this is the single worst thing Trump could do short of starting a nuclear war.  The climate is becoming unstable in front of our eyes, and Trump is making it worse.  We must fight this, we must convince congress to no go along with ANY part of this budget.

HAPPENING RIGHT NOW: Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley is on the Senate floor doing a real, live, talking filibuster to oppose the nomination of Trump’s right-wing Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch.

In January, Merkley told Politico “We will use every lever in our power to stop this.” Americans across the country have protested the nomination of a judge who favors corporations over women, workers, and everyday people.

Now, Senator Merkley has vowed to #StopGorsuch by holding the Senate floor as long as he is able — all night if he can.

Other Democratic senators can help Merkley by giving him a break on the Senate floor.

Click here to tweet to the whole Democratic Senate Caucus asking them to go the Senate floor right now to support Jeff Merkley.
