Americans for Tax Fairness helps you tell Congress to investigate allegations of over $2.5 billion in tax dodging on the part of Walmart. Walmart apparently created a fake overseas entity in a foreign country that (conveniently) neither the foreign country nor ours would claim jurisdiction upon, but whatever the details, fact is Walmart doesn't pay enough in taxes, and that means less of the good services we all expect from our tax money. I know some folks, unscrupulous and not, will claim that we're taking "low prices" hostage by "going after Walmart." But saying don't make Walmart pay more in taxes, or we won't be able to afford paper towels is itself a hostage crisis, and quite unbecoming of the American can-do spirit. As for the folks who don't have anywhere to get their groceries other than Walmart, we can do other things to fix that -- like, say, aiding farmers' markets and breaking monopolies.
Meanwhile, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell your House Rep to co-sponsor H.R. 1384, the Medicare for All Act, then Public Citizen still helps you do that. H.R. 1384 has 118 co-sponsors, but as you know, the House has 435 members, 235 of whom are Democrats, meaning that just over half of the more left-leaning party supports Medicare-for-All. And they should support it! The Medicare for All Act would insure all Americans, cut costs (mainly by cutting administrative overhead), and let you keep your doctor (by forcing doctors to accept Medicare for All health insurance, except those who only perform services the bill doesn't cover, like high-end plastic surgery). The big health insurance corporations say folks like their health insurers ("until they actually try to use it" is the part they leave out!) and generally fearmongering the population. But we're can-do Americans, and we don't have to put up with that.
Finally, H.R. 2148/S. 1082, the BE HEARD in the Workplace Act, would expand protections against workplace harassment in a number of ways. The bill would, for the first time, expand the law's protections to interns, trainees, volunteers, independent contractors, and small business workers, and would also help workers redress the harm caused them by harassment by outlawing forced arbitration agreements and restricting the use of non-disclosure agreements. (You'll recall that Gretchen Carlson couldn't take Fox News's Roger Ailes to court for his sexual harassment of her because of a forced arbitration agreement in her employment contract.) And if you hear someone say this bill would prevent them from doing business, you're free to wonder how much of their business model depends on harassment. The National Women's Law Center helps you tell your Congressfolk to protect working families by passing the BE HEARD Act.
