Your Weekly Message from Indivisible and the Calls Sheets

A Message from Indivisible

 

Friends,

As we always knew he would, Donald Trump is trying to rip apart our country and our democracy. No matter what issue matters to you most – whether it’s health care, immigration, the environment, civil rights, or something else – it is under attack by Trump and his cronies in Congress.

And that’s their plan. They’re hoping that by attacking every value this country cherishes, we won’t have the energy or the fortitude to fight him on multiple fronts. But we are going to prove them wrong.

Before a busy weekend of town halls, we wanted to make sure you had all the tools to get the job done. This week, we’re focusing on Comey’s firing and health care.

In a blow to democracy, Trump fires the person investigating his administration 

Trump himself admitted today that his administration cooked up a reason to fire Comey, telling NBC he was “going to fire him anyway” regardless of what his own Justice Department recommended. We need an independent, resourced investigation into the ties between Trump, his people, and Russia’s interference in our election. Read our latest policy brief here.

What you should do: Tell your Senator we need an independent law enforcement investigation, like a special prosecutor, to make sure we get the bottom of this. Do it at town halls, office visits, phone calls, the works.

Payback for TrumpCare votes 

Last week, 217 representatives voted to gut protections for millions of Americans with preexisting conditions, defund Planned Parenthood, and cut $880 billion from Medicaid for children, the sick, and persons with disabilities. We’ve launched The Payback Project, a website showcasing your amazing work across the country to remind these representatives of the cost of voting for TrumpCare. Check it out The Payback Project here.

Support the Resistance

First and foremost, we hope you’ll use the resources above to hold your Members of Congress accountable. If you’re also able to chip in a few bucks, we’ll be able to keep the Payback Project alive to serve as your one-stop-shop for the Resistance.

When Trump fired Comey, when House Republicans voted for TrumpCare, they were betting that the resistance was slowing down. The Payback Project, and our work to push the Senate to hold the Trump accountable is a reminder that we aren’t tired, we’re angry—and we will not be quiet. Together, we will win.

In solidarity,

The Indivisible Team
