Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to repeal the Iraq AUMF, and pass the Lower Drug Prices Now Act, the Defending the Human Rights of Palestinian Children and Families Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act, the American Dream and Promise Act, the Equality Act, the For the People Act, and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your Congressfolk's phone numbers, or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
The Friends Committee on National Legislation helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 256, which would repeal the Authorization to Use Military Force (or AUMF) Congress passed to permit George W. Bush to go to war with Iraq in 2003. Finally! 2003 was 18 years ago, which means the Iraq War AUMF is now old enough to vote and to believe at least one doomed relationship from high school was gonna last forever, and like that doomed relationship, the 2003 AUMF ain't doing anyone any good now. Of course, Presidents still use it to launch unilateral wars in defiance of our Constitution and the popular will, so it not only doesn't do anyone any good, it does only evil. So we should wipe it out of our legal code.
Drug Prices Are Too High helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 3, the Lower Drug Prices Now Act. If you thought letting Medicare negotiate more of its drug prices was a good idea before -- and chances are you did, since you're a person with a brain who doesn't let their ego completely dominate them -- you'll think it's an even better idea now that our FDA has approved Biogen's Alzheimer's drug that'll cost $56,000 a year. Some analysts say it'll double Medicare drug spending, and though I doubt it's that dire, Biogen's drug is basically the big thing in Alzheimer's treatment right now, so there'll be a lot of it out there, and that will drive up Medicare's drug prices. So let's give Medicare the power to lower drug prices, which means Medicare will spend less of our taxpayer money.
The Daily Kos Liberation League helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 2590, the Defending the Human Rights of Palestinian Children and Families Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act. OK, it's a long title and doesn't make a cute acronym (cue Benny Hill trying to pronounce "DHRPCFLUIMO"), but it would prevent Israel from using our taxpayer dollars to oppress the Palestinians. And "oppress" is the right word! Never mind who did what first: Israel clearly has superior power to Palestine, and Palestine's alleged allies aren't exactly stepping up to help them. And at the risk of saying something radical, everyone in this region is a human being, and deserves basic human rights.
The Daily Kos Liberation League helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act. Remember when President Obama essentially created the DACA program, to protect some immigrants who came here with their parents (and thus had no choice in their emigration) from deportation to a nation they wouldn't recognize and likely couldn't even speak the language of? Remember how Republicans all said this is Congress's job? Now guess how many of the bill's 175 co-sponsors in the House are Republicans. That's right, none. And this bill shouldn't offend them: it doesn't offer blanket "amnesty" to all immigrants who came here as children, and sets standards for whom our government can help. And here you thought these Republicans were all about boundaries! But no, civilized people are all about boundaries, and there ain't no intersection with "Republican politicians" on that Venn diagram.
The Daily Kos Liberation League, People for the American Way, and Ultraviolet all help you tell your Senators to pass H.R. 5, the Equality Act. Because it's not even close to what right-wingers say it is! It won't "assault your religious liberties" unless you think "religious liberty" is all about discriminating against gay and transgender folk, which isn't how I've experienced religion at all. And it won't let boys dominate girls in basketball or softball or field hockey, either, nor will it allow boys to gang up on girls in girls' locker rooms. Seriously, right-wingers fixate on the most absurd end results of a bill these days, and why? Because they can't argue with the things the Equality Act would actually do, like prevent landlords from discriminating against gays. The only way they win is if they make you think their "reality" is actually reality. And it's not.
Daily Kos, the Sierra Club, and People for the American Way all help you tell your Senators to pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act. Meanwhile, Common Cause, People for the American Way, and the Daily Kos Liberation League all help you tell your Congressfolk to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. And Public Citizen helps you tell them to do both. We have been reminded, over the past few weeks, that actual bipartisan majorities of Americans support these bills, be they conservative, moderate, or liberal, so don't brook any silliness about these bills not being "bipartisan" enough. You know what the politicians mean by "bipartisanship"? Democrats and Republicans coming together to do whatever Republicans want. And we deserve better than such rubbish.
