Our President has of course announced that he'll fire the Inspector General who first processed the whistleblower complaint that led to impeachment! On the basis that he's not a "fan" of our President! We're long past the point where we find such honesty refreshing, I hope. And we hear that our President plans to fire a bunch of other Inspectors General, presumably also on the basis that they're not "fans" of his. Of course we don't have Inspectors General to suck up to Our Personal Lord and Savior; we have them to root out corruption in our government -- which should be of keen interest to us, as governmental corruption can only occur with our tax money. Thankfully, the Inspector General Act gives Congress 30 days to stop the firing, so the National Whistleblower Center helps you tell your Congressfolk to stop the firing of Inspector General Michael Atkinson. Don't brook any talk about Presidential "prerogatives," because that pales next to the people's prerogative to expose corruption and punish corrupt public servants.
You've heard, no doubt, that our government wants to pass yet another relief package relating to the pandemic, and with the previous package being full of big corporate payouts, what do you suppose will be different about this one? So naturally our President thinks that we should deal with the problems restaurant workers and owners are currently having making ends meet by bringing back more corporate welfare handouts! Specifically, he wants to jack up the corporate meals deduction back up to 100% (currently they can only deduct 50% of the cost of meals) and bringing back the corporate deduction for entertainment. If you're scratching your head wondering how that's supposed to help a cook pay her water bill, well, you're not alone. I don't know how much more proof folks need that our President only cares about other bosses -- I mean, you'd only come up with that idea by talking to a boss! Hence Americans for Tax Fairness helps you tell your Congressfolk to put people ahead of profiteers and reject yet more tax-cuts-for-the-rich in any future stimulus legislation.
Speaking of which, our President also seems obsessed with giving oil corporations some corporate welfare goodies in the next stimulus bill. First he said gas would be down to 99 cents a gallon in America and that would be like getting a "tax cut," then he praised Saudi Arabia for declaring it would ratchet back oil production, which would pretty much wipe out that "tax cut." Since then he's met with oil corporation executives because as I keep saying he only listens to other bosses. Big oil corporations, frankly, don't need any more handouts, even if people are driving less than they did a month or so ago, so Public Citizen helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject any more handouts for big oil corporations in future stimulus legislation. Don't brook any silliness about how "oil corporations only make seven cents per gallon," because they sold over 140 billion gallons in 2015, and banging the SEVEN CENTZ!!! saucepan is like saying CEOs are underpaid because they only make four dollars every time they draw a breath.
Finally, you know who might actually need some financial assistance? Our Post Office, that's who! Our taxes haven't funded our Post Office since the early '80s (take that, would-be Post Office privatizers!), and our Post Office has said it might shut down by June, and not just because of this pandemic: Congress has forced our Post Office to prefund its workers' pensions for the next 40 years, a demand Congress has never made of any other entity and one that costs our Post Office $5 billion annually. Despite all the obstacles our government keeps throwing in its way, our Post Office, in my experience, continues to do a pretty terrific job -- and we'd miss them if they weren't around, that's for damn sure. Hence Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk to give a hand up to our Post Office in any future stimulus legislation. Go ahead and remind your Congressfolk that we may be doing a lot more voting-by-mail this election, and that they surely don't want to be perceived as anti-voting! And no we're not all just going to switch to UPS or FedEx! They cost a lot more money!
