Day 307:

Things To Call Your Senator About Today

Tell them to vote NO on the disastrous tax cut bill, make sure to mention that if they do vote for it you will not be voting for them.

Tell them to do SOMETHING, ANYTHING to stop the FCC from destroying net neutrality. Again mention that if they don’t you wont be voting for them.

Think like a Utopian, Fight like a Whirlwind.
