Spring Into Action - PBIN on Offense!

Body

Now is the time to Spring Into Action!

It is critical that we hold our members of Congress (MoCs) accountable to move legislation that sets the tone for the rest of 2019 and beyond from a bold package of democracy reforms. 

We need to push our MoCs to push back on Trump’s agenda! 

Go deeper on legislation we can advocate for by clicking on the links below. 

Let’s demand that our MoCs introduce, co-sponsor and approve legislation that paints a picture of what’s possible when you fight for a democracy of, by, and for the people.  See the scripts below. 

On March 8, H.R.1 passed the House, with every Democrat voting in favor and every Republican voting against. While it’s unlikely that it will receive any consideration in the Senate, this sets a progressive baseline consensus on democracy reform and represents a major win for the Democrats. H.R.1. ensures all eligible citizens can easily exercise their right to vote, puts a stop to partisan gerrymandering, gets “dark money” out of politics, and strengthens our protections against unethical and corrupt politicians.

Script: My name is XXX and my address and zip code is XXX. I am a proud member of Palm Beach Indivisibles.  For way too long, Congress has abdicated its responsibility to check presidential abuses of power that erode the system of checks and balances in our Constitution.  

I demand that you vote for:

•The reforms in the new Green New Deal. Climate change is the most urgent challenge of our time and we have no time to waste  in preventing catastrophic global warming.

•The reforms in the Medicare for All Act. I demand that you repair our broken  healthcare system.  Congress must find a way to provide health care to all citizens while controlling spiraling health care costs.

•The reforms in the Paycheck Fairness Act. There is no reason women, particularly women of color, should earn less than their male counterparts for the same work.

•The reforms in the Family Act. All workers in this country should have the benefits of an inclusive comprehensive national paid family and medical leave program.

•The reforms in the Dream and Promise Act and the Muslim Ban and Asylum Ban Repeal Bill. I demand relief for young immigrants (the “dreamers”) who can no longer apply for deportation protection under DACA and immigrants who have lost their temporary protected status and fear for their lives if forced to return home country. I also demand an end to the Muslim and asylum bans and I insist that families separated at the border be reunited.

•The reforms in H.R. 1274, which repeals Trump’s blank check to declare war using  the broad authority Congress gave the executive branch to protect this country right after 9-11—the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF). The AUMF has no time limits, no geographic constraints, and no exit strategy. It has become a blank check for any President, at any time, to wage war without Congressional oversight. Congress can and must reassert its proper authority so Trump can’t start a war merely to distract from his wrong-doings.

•The reforms in H.R. 1046 to give Medicare the power it needs to effectively negotiate with drug companies and bring drug prices down.
