Oligarchs Are Not Looking Out For You
The neo-liberal power structure entrenched in the leadership of the democratic party (and a fair amount of its members as well) will never volunteer to get better. That is the thing I see most democrats don’t understand. They must be primaried, and voted out of office.
Only when Schumer, Pelosie, Durbin, Manchin, Heitkamp, and the rest get voted out and replaced by progressives will there be change.
The Dems need to clean house before they can take on the republicans. Sure if you can replace a republican with a democrat it helps, but look at how Doug Jones has voted since he has been a senator…nothing impressive so far, in fact he voted to approve the new HHS guy, who is the former head of Eli Lilly….
Simply because they have a D after their name isn’t good enough. We will desperately need to primary so many Dem’s this next cycle, and the one after that. They wont give us any power, we will have to take it from them.
A study found that from 2014 to 2016, there was a reduction in infant deaths in states under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), while average infant mortality rates rose in states that had not expanded Medicaid coverage.
Trump is ignoring a near-unanimous (98-99%) Congressional agreement on imposing sanctions against Russia for interfering in the US election. He won’t even acknowledge that Russian interference happened. Instead, he is ignoring Congress to serve the interests of Putin. This is not how America works.
Tools of change:
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.
Phone Bank for Progressive Candidates:
Call the White House:
Call the “White House”:
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.
Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
