***DAILY DO’S - THURSDAY 7AM EDITION***
Last night we asked you to read up on the REINS and Midnight Rules acts that House Republicans plan to vote on next week.
1. Tell your Congressional Representatives to protect public health and safety by voting NO on the REINS Act and Midnight Rules Act.
Both bills pose a dangerous threat to important federal protections that safeguard our food supply, consumer products, clean air and water, financial practices, and workplace safety.
Please make a quick call today. Phone numbers are below. Here’s a sample script:
“Hi, I’m a constituent of Representative________, and I’d like to leave an important message for her.”
“I’m calling to urge her to vote NO on both the REINS Act and the Midnight Rules Act when they come up for a vote next week, and to let her know I’ll be watching her votes carefully.”
“These bills would subvert our Constitutional process, and they pose a dangerous threat to federal protections that safeguard our health and safety.”
The friendly staffer may ask for your name or address so you can receive a response.
Once you make your call, respond to the poll below by marking your rep.
2. This is too big of an issue to leave to ourselves. Spread the word to friends and family and ask to spread the word. Need an article to share? Here’s a couple of additional sources: http://bit.ly/2igpjwv and http://theatln.tc/2g1dsTn
3. Even as we shift our focus to new and immanent threats and challenges, it’s important to remember that some fights are not over yet. If you’re in the Seattle area, join DAPL opponents January 5th in a rally to defund banks and stop the violence. Can’t attend the event? Pledge to shut down your Wells Fargo on January 5th in support.
