Word on the street is that the proposed resolution of disapproval that would reverse the FCC's recent decision to kill off net neutrality -- and kill off your internet freedom with it! -- now has 45 co-sponsors, including Republican Sen. Collins of Maine, and per the Congressional Review Act, the resolution would need only 30 co-sponsors to force a vote in the Senate. So Moms Rising helps you send an email to your Senators demanding that they vote to restore net neutrality and therefore internet freedom to all Americans, not just the big actors who can pay-to-play, but you may want to make this a phone call, too, so they take you more seriously. And don't flinch before the prospect of this resolution failing in the House (or getting vetoed by the President): if it passes in the Senate, it will deliver a massive PR black eye to FCC Chair Ajit Pai's efforts, and it could even help discourage big telecoms from randomly blocking and throttling your favorite websites.
Meanwhile, the Trump Administration wants to roll back an Obama-era rule requiring more advanced pneumatic brake systems for trains carrying crude oil across our great land. Always Mr. Trump tries to destroy anything with Mr. Obama's name on it; he's worse than Kylo Ren confronting Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi, amirite? And always Mr. Trump says TEH REGULASHUNZ HURTS TEH BIZNIZZIZ!!!!!, when these same regulations protect people -- I mean, is the meaning of being an American really all about having to put up with living near oil trains derailing and blowing up and polluting our air and water? After all, nearly a third of Pennsylvanians (for example) live within a half-mile of a train line which carries crude oil, so this isn't something that "happens to other people." Penn Environment helps you tell the Trump Administration to scuttle its plan to let oil trains roam the land with substandard braking systems.
Finally, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Congressfolk to stop slashing the budget of the Social Security Administration and instead fund it so it can give seniors the help they need, then CREDO still helps you do that. What right-wingers hope you don't get about "reducing the size of government" is that government provides services to us, services we have already paid for with our taxes. If they can convince you that your government is an obstacle rather than a tool, then they win -- particularly when Democrat politicians play this me-too-but-smarter game they've been playing for almost 40 years. But I digress. The notion that there's just no money to pay for good services from the Social Security Administration is utter horsedoodle -- Congress just cut corporate taxes and rich people's taxes dramatically, so the money is there; Congress is afraid (at best!) of forcing their biggest donors to pay their fair share. So let's help them face their fear.
