On the occasion of the 6-month anniversary of the Republican tax scam, and the Republicans' stated intent to pursue another tax-cut-for-the-rich before the midterms, Moms Rising helps you tell your Congressfolk to repeal the Republican tax scam, oppose another tax-cut-for-the-rich, and enact tax policy that actually helps working families. A couple dozen dollars every week ain't nothing, but giving a couple dozen dollars to working families while giving billions to corporations and hundreds of thousands to millionaires just ain't moral -- ultimately, it's a way to bribe working families so that rich folks can get even more powerful. If Congress wants to help working families, they can tax the rich harder, so that they're less able to buy Congressfolk who'll write laws that help them run roughshod over the rest of us. Sounds a lot like common sense -- to anyone but a Congressdolt dependent on campaign funds to survive, that is.
Meanwhile, airline corporations have met with some much-deserved bad PR over avoidable pet deaths, the most famous (from almost a year ago) being the bulldog puppy who suffocated after a United Airlines attendant insisted the dog be put in the overhead compartment. So Delta Airlines (which had a dog die during a layover on one of its flights last month) has compounded the problem by banning pit bulls from their flights, even if they're service or emotional support dogs. I can't be the only one who's had nothing but positive experiences with pit bulls. And this ban happens to violate the Americans with Disabilities Act, since no one who has a seeing-eye pit is going to go through the trouble of training (and trusting) a dog of a different breed just to fly Delta. Hence Sara Enos has begun a petition on Change.org which helps you tell Delta Airlines to get rid of their pit bull ban.
