If you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Congressfolk to end American involvement in Saudi Arabia's war against Yemen by supporting H.Con.Res. 81, then Roots Action still helps you do that. H.Con.Res. 81 would, in its own words, "direct() the President to remove United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen, except United States Armed Forces engaged in operations directed at Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula or associated forces." That second phrase isn't a loophole -- by helping Saudi Arabia kill Houthi rebels in Yemen, we're attacking some of the best al-Qaeda fighters on the planet, and thus helping al-Qaeda. Of course, we're also helping Saudi Arabia inflict famine and cholera upon Yemen, but note well how our involvement (and Saudi Arabia would have a very tough time fighting this war without our help) doesn't even meet our own self-interest. It's like we're no good at imperialism anymore or something.
Meanwhile, CREDO helps you tell your Senators to keep President Trump from appointing an acting IRS Commissioner who would go easy on (or interfere with) investigations into the President's own taxes. The current Commissioner, John Koskinen, retires in a month, and if you're hoping President Trump's notorious slowness in filling executive positions might give us a little breathing space, well, forget it -- by law, the IRS Commissioner's seat can't be left empty. Which gives Mr. Trump an opportunity to inflict yet another shock upon the American people! Of course, he does this all the time now -- every classless twittering, every report of Administration infighting, even reports of his impending "meltdown," should all be understood, I think, as attempts to shock the American people into numbness. How do we fight it? We focus on our will, and so we communicate our will that Mr. Trump avoid the appearance of corruption in picking the next IRS Commissioner.
