I still think you should call your Reps and Senators and demand that they reject whatever tax "reform" plan comes out of conference, but Public Citizen also helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject the final tax "reform" bill or, in the words of their latest email missive, "face the wrath of (their) constituents." How much wrath they'll face remains to be seen, particularly in districts where they've been able to gerrymander individual houses into the next district (or states that use the Interstate Crosscheck database), but why not remind them that in passing this tax "reform," they stand against us? And does standing against the people seem to them to be their job? Is it their job to take away the tax breaks working families depend upon (state and local tax deductions, property tax deductions, etc.) in order to shower upon big corporations and wealthy inheritors unearned and unneeded tax breaks? Is it their job to force cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security because of the massive deficits their tax "reform" plan creates? Is it their job to refuse to face the people in townhalls over their tax "reform" plan? They may not know what their job is, but we know what our job is.
In a related note, the Fairness Project helps you tell your Congressfolk to reauthorize the Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP. You may want to follow up with a phone call, in which you add that you want clean CHIP reauthorization, without poison pill amendments or hostage crises. CHIP's funding authorization lapsed on September 30, since the Senate was too busy trying to take health care away from at least 20 million Americans; the House has passed a CHIP reauthorization bill since then, but one larded with poison pills. Lately, Sen. Hatch (R-UT) has opined that though he'd love to get CHIP reauthorized, he's sick and tired of all these people demanding that government do everything for them, or something. Funny that he'd indulge in that critique when discussing children's health insurance, a matter that children can literally do nothing about. Unless Mr. Hatch wants them all to work factory jobs! And for him to go on about "spending and spending" when he literally blew open a trillion-dollar hole in the national debt is just icing on the cake. Might shame finally descend upon these politicians? Or must we wait for a Doug Jones victory in Alabama that's far from a sure thing?
Finally, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell President Trump to abandon his plan of opening up the Grand Canyon area to uranium mining corporations, then Environmental Action helps you do that. If you wanted to sum up the problem here in seven words, here they are: uranium mining pollutes water that people drink. Specifically, uranium mining in the Grand Canyon area would pollute the drinking water of the Colorado River, which serves five U.S. states and two Mexican states and which, quite frankly, gets a little shallower every year, not just from corporations and people using more and more water, but also from climate change drying out the land. But you know how the unregenerate mammon-worshiper Donald Trump thinks: if some executive can make money, then screw everything and everyone else. And this is not about "creating jobs" for miners, because corporate executives won't create jobs for anyone unless one of two things happen: demand rises, or we make them. Sadly, in this age, the latter has to precede the former. Uranium mining is, for the Trump Administration, all about making mining executives richer, and nothing else.
