Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to pass the Counselors Not Criminalization Act, reject attacks on IRS Direct File, and reject attempts to cut Social Security and Medicare benefits. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your Congressfolk's phone numbers and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
Moms Rising helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass the Counselors Not Criminalization Act, which would, as its title suggests, shift us away from putting more cops in classrooms and toward putting more counselors and nurses on school staffs. Because “more cops” is not the solution to every problem! In fact, it’s kinda insulting to the cops, to constantly put them in situations they can’t handle, rather than the situations they can handle. And personal to folks who tell jokes at the mere mention of “therapy” for children: you’re sad people, and you don’t get all the say about everything.
Americans for Tax Fairness helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject Republican attacks on our IRS’s direct file system. Yes, Republicans even hate that! It’s like they hate anything that might make our lives a little easier! Or, more precisely, they care more about big tax preparing corporations skimming money off you than they care about you saving money. Most good Americans don’t have the kind of hifalutin investments that require the assistance of a tax professional, and most civilized nations don’t make their citizens pay to do their taxes, so I think our course of action is clear here.
Finally, the Coalition on Human Needs helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject any attempt to create a commission designed to cut your earned Social Security and/or Medicare benefits. Because you didn’t just fight for them – you also worked for them and paid into them! And now they want to create a kind of "death panel" so they can cut benefits “behind closed doors” and force a quick vote on them without any scrutiny by the American people. Why? Because we would torch-and-pitchfork that shit right quick, that’s why! If we let them know we’re on to them and we’ll stop them from taking what’s ours, then we won’t have to resort to torches and pitchforks.
