Long story short: tell Sen. Manchin you want a much bigger corporate tax hike than he does; tell your Senators to pass the For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and the Equality Act; and tell your Senators to confirm President Biden's three appointments to the USPS Board of Governors. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or the bottom of this page, if you're on a cellphone) to find your Senators' phone numbers, or use the email/petition links in the paragraphs below.
Jesus Mary and Joseph we have to call Sen. Manchin (D?-WV) again, after he said he wouldn't support hiking the corporate tax rate to 28% in the coming infrastructure bill. He said he also spoke for "six or seven other Democrats" (though not "Senators"), but I'd lay money that when I advocate for a 55% corporate tax rate, I speak for a lot more than six or seven other Americans. And does he even watch TV? Even Meet the Press wouldn't shut up about the 55-plus American corporations paying zero dollars in taxes in 2019. So, again, we have to help him put his finger up to the wind, by calling 202.224.3954 and giving him yet another piece of our minds. I hope he's enjoying himself.
The Sierra Club helps you tell your Senators to pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act. You may have seen ads attacking the For the People Act; though they make less absurd claims than "child molestors voting" and "workers handing out cocaine to voters waiting in line," the difference between them is nothing more than the difference between a mound of dung the flies have found and a mound of dung they haven't found yet. The things the bill would actually do -- automatic and same-day voter registration, campaign finance disclosure, and end to various vote suppression schemes that just-to-happen to target folks of color -- are all quite popular, and Republicans know that, so they're left with telling hysterical lies and hoping Democrats don't change the filibuster.
People for the American Way, Common Cause, and the Daily Kos Liberation League all help you tell your Senators to support the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. You know all these vote suppression bills state legislatures are mulling or passing in over 40 states? The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act would stop most of them dead, by requiring pre-clearance of voting law changes for any state or locality that's demonstrated a habit of suppressing votes -- not just certain Southern states, as the Voting Rights Act originally stated. As I've said, voting rights are actually quite popular in America, except with whom, class? Except with sore losers who think they have a "right" to keep winning elections when they show their constituents nothing but the backs of their hands. So let's put a stop to that.
Both the Daily Kos Liberation League and People for the American Way help you tell your Senators to pass H.R. 5, the Equality Act. When a Trump-supporting co-worker tried to tell me that the Equality Act would let boys become girls so they can dominate girls' sports -- a story that falls apart under the most cursory scrutiny -- I told him the Equality Act was really about things like preventing landlords and banks from discriminating against customers just because they're gay, and guess what? He agreed that discriminating against gays like that was a bad thing. You have to tell Trump votaries more than once what the Equality Act's really about, but you have the upper hand in every argument you have about the Equality Act because you have the facts. And I insist that counts for something.
Common Cause helps you tell your Senators to confirm three USPS Board of Governors appointees, not just because they're good nominees, but so they can then fire Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. I gotta say that trying to sabotage our Post Office's efforts to deliver mail-in ballots should get you fired. You know what else should get you fired? Responding to delivery and service problems you created by threatening higher prices and worse service. That's not the kind of bold, entrepreneurial thinking that we celebrate in America, right? Or do we only celebrate thieves anymore? At the risk of being obvious, I can think of one fairly famous historical figure who did not put up with thieves in his house.
