This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 54

Trump Watch:

Trump is going to cut your medicare, your medicaid, your health care, and possibly kill you with neglect, all so the extremely rich can get a little richer.  They are willing to actually kill you so that they can get more wealth.

—————

 

The CBO (the nonpartisan office that scores budget proposals) has released an absolutely SCATHING review of Trumpcare.  It will kick 24 MILLION people off health care, and cost people lives.  (Or 26 million if you listen to Trump’s White House!) And the Republicans have no idea what they should do about it.  Trumps plan is to go on vacation again.  Its a disaster.  And we must stop it, call your senator today.

——————-

Trump probably fired the AG of New York because he was investigating fox news.

——————-

Its getting pretty clear that Exxon has known about climate change, understands what causes it, and is lying to everyone about it.  They have purchased the state department, and are now moving to enrich themselves even more.

———————

If you live in Iowa, maybe its time to get ride of this guy

——————-

Republicans are trying to remove federal funding for mass transit…their greed knows no depths.  Don’t like this?  Call your senator and rep now.

———————-

All the crazy shit with Russian continues to get crazier.  Just remember at the bottom of all this bullshit is a bunch of very rich people trying to get even richer.

—————–

Trump has said he would donate his salary, but of course he is lying about that.

——————

Republicans are radical crazy nut bags, and have somehow managed to fool people into thinking they are normal human beings.

——————-

Even the girl guides are afraid to come to Trump’s america…make no mistake this sort of thing will hurt our economy.  American citizens, just so you know, if you leave this country, when you come back, the U.S. Border Patrol can search your cell phone.

April 15 – Tax Strike

Bernie Sanders would have swept across this country…sigh.  In 4 years we really should make him president.

————–

Trumps approval ratings plunge.  He is so weak that the entire republican party is vulnerable to a political counter attack.

————–

California is pushing universal healthcare.  This would change absolutely everything in this country.

Urgent Action Needed On Climate Bill

Include an RES!

Take Action!

Call and Urge Your Senators to Include A Strong Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) in the Energy Bill

The media is reporting that, in just a few days, the U.S. Senate will begin consideration of a slimmed-down energy bill without a renewable electricity standard (RES). The energy bill is purported to include provisions dealing with the oil spill, energy efficiency upgrades, natural-gas-powered trucking fleets, and land and water conservation.

Although the U.S. wind fleet now offsets nearly 62 million tons of carbon dioxide annually – equivalent to taking 10.5 million cars off the road – the 2010 numbers are looking dismal, with only about 700 megawatts (MW) added to the grid in the 2nd quarter. The industry needs an RES to survive and prosper.

An RES was passed in the House of Representatives ACES Act (H.R. 2454) last year, as well as in the Senate Energy & Resources Committee over a year ago. So why is the Senate now turning its back on American workers and our new energy future?

AWEA CEO Denise Bode said, “A refusal to pass an RES is an attack on every American worker and consumer. Not passing an RES endangers at least 360,000 jobs: 85,000 currently employed in the wind industry and the potential 274,000 additional jobs created by an RES.”

This may be our last hope of passing legislation needed to save tens of thousands of American jobs in one of our country’s fastest-growing industries. Please TAKE ACTION NOW AND CALL YOUR SENATORS to tell them that you support inclusion of an RES in the energy bill.
