Trump has quietly signed a bill allowing your ISP to collect and sell your data…Ironic 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.
Mayor’s $15 Veto has Unions Rethinking their Support of Democrats…you don’t say. Its time that unions pull support from corporate democrats and switch to progressives who will actually fight for them.

Lets get these people elected!
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.

Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?
Calling your government representative:
You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.

Use this website to call one of Trump’s many properties he has not put into a blind trust yet, and let them know how you feel (be polite, they are workers just like us, but be firm).
Do a little Slacktivism:
Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:
Monitor your congressperson:
Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.
