Summary: tell Pennsylvania state legislators to stop curtailing voting rights; tell Congressfolk to enact real tax reform, pass the Medicare for All Act, make Washington, D.C. a state, and pass the Postal Banking Act. Use the tools in the upper-right corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find phone numbers for your Congressfolk and/or your Pennsylvania state legislators. Also, I will provide (when I have them) links for petitions and email tools below.
Pennsylvania passed Act 77 in 2019, which (among other things) allowed folks to register to vote up to 15 days before the election; now the legislature wants to make that limit 30 days again. Why? Because Joe Biden won Pennsylvania, that's why! You'd think Republicans (who control PA's legislature) would look around and see their numbers undiminished after the 2020 election and decide they're safe, but I'll make the same notation I made with Georgia yesterday: Republicans know they can't win arguments on the merits, so they try to game the system to ensure victory. When you're doing that, instead of serving your constituents, you ought to start with the Man in the Mirror. (Common Cause also provides an email-writing tool with which to support wider voter registration times in Pennsylvania.)
President Biden, as you know, has released a tax reform plan; now's the time to call your Reps and Senators and tell them to make it better. I mean, a lot of the Biden plan is good, but it would only get things almost back to where they were before the 2017 tax "reform," and we know that's not enough: we need a 91% tax bracket on millionaire income, we need a 55% tax on corporate profits over $1 million (we can leave it at 21% for under $1 million), we need to count dividends, capital gains, and stock options as income for tax purposes, we need to enact an Elizabeth Warren-style wealth tax, and we need to cap the mortgage interest deduction so homeowners can still enjoy it but slumlords and corporations can't game the system. Oh, and no national sales tax, ever. State sales taxes -- which always hit working people harder than rich folks -- are noxious enough. I know that's a mouthful, but the more we demand, the more we'll get.
Rep. Jayapal (D-WA) has introduced H.R. 1976, the Medicare for All Act, which would, as its title suggests, expand Medicare to include all Americans, gradually over a period of four years. Medicare-for-All health insurance consistently scores over 60% in polls these days -- polls conducted by corporate media outlets, which you would think would have extra incentive to tell you nobody likes Medicare-for-All! Go ahead and tell them how you'd pay for it, too -- either by enacting Sen. Warren's plan to convert money spent on private insurance into a per-employee tax, or enacting an employer-side payroll tax hike that would neither impact employee paychecks or corporate expenses. (Medicare4AllNow.org and Black Lives Matter provide petitions.)
H.R. 51/S. 51, the Washington, D.C. Admission Act, would make Washington, D.C. our 51st state (hence the bill numbers). The case, I trust, is clear -- no, not "Democrats would get two more Senators," but that D.C.'s population outstrips actual states Vermont and Wyoming, that D.C. pays more federal taxes than 22 other states, that federal control of D.C. has proven unwieldy and oppressive, and that, ah, D.C. might have turned that January 6 coup attempt back a lot more easily if it had the apparatus of a state to protect itself. (Both Free DC and Demand Progress provide petitions.)
No one's reintroduced the Postal Banking Act in this Congress yet, but that doesn't mean we can't tell our Congressfolk to reintroduce and pass it; indeed, they're supposed to work on our schedule, not theirs! The Postal Banking Act would allow our Postal Service to offer basic banking services, like savings, checking, and bill-paying, and that would greatly help good Americans who live in rural and urban areas the big banking corporations won't touch. And if it wouldn't help our payday lenders who fill that void and put good Americans into a 300% interest death-spiral, well, too bad, so sad. (Daily Kos provides a petition.)
