Take Action Now!

This Week’s Top 3 Actions:

Action #1 – Members of Congress – tell the Supreme Court you expect them to adhere to past Court decisions:

Why? Because this is likely the only way to prevent the Court from overturning Roe vs Wade, making abortion illegal in America.

Script: Adherence to prior Supreme Court decisions, despite current Justices agreement with those prior rulings, is protected by the doctrine of stare decisis.  The current Court has ignored this doctrine in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt.  In some cases these Justices were appointed on the basis of their stated adherence to stare decisis.  It is unacceptable for the Court to overturn prior decisions without cause.  Please communicate, loudly and clearly, your disappointment with the Court’s recent decision.

Action #2- Concerned Trump will start a Middle East war? Ask your Members of Congress to intervene:

Script: The administration sabre rattling over Iran is increasing, and appears to be another distraction, this time where Americans lose their lives, to divert from Trump’s domestic troubles.  I want you to co-sponsor legislation, H.R. 2354 or S. 1039, to deny authority to start a new war.

Action #3 – Encourage Members of Congress to exercise their oversight responsibilities:

Script: I’m concerned over the appalling power grab President Trump is attempting. We cannot let this stand, or we risk changing the country forever. Congress is a co-equal branch of government with a constitutional duty to check the Executive. We need to see the full Mueller report. If congress does vote to hold AG Barr in contempt, I support congress using its inherent contempt powers to jail the AG until he produces the report.
