Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to approve emergency COVID funding and pass the Stop Gas Price Gouging Tax and Rebate Act, the Scientific Integrity Act, the Amir Locke End Deadly No-Knock Warrants Act, the EACH Act, and the MORE 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 and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk to approve additional funding for fighting COVID. Another omicron variant is on its way, and our government has run out of money for testing and vaccines; Congress didn't include more COVID funding as part of its last appropriations bill, apparently because they feared Republicans would object to it and scuttle everything. To which I respond: make them! And though I know the Lancet predicted, a few months ago, that the pandemic would be over soon, that's still a prediction, not a certainty, even if pretty good science buttresses it, so one should be prudent and prepare for the possibility that things could go wrong. Apparently it takes a liberal to preach prudence these days.
Americans for Tax Fairness helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 7099, the Stop Gas Price Gouging Tax and Rebate Act. Similar to the Big Oil Windfall Profits Tax Act, the Stop Gas Price Gouging Tax and Rebate Act would impose a 50% excise tax on crude oil-producing corporations on profits that exceed 10% over their average profits from 2015-19. The bill would then deliver the proceeds back to working families as monthly rebates. House Democrats should pass this bill posthaste and then put Senate Republicans on the spot. Let them say they can big oil corporations may not be price-gouging; people will love that! And let them be the ones to snatch monthly checks out of good Americans' hands; people will love that, too!
Breast Cancer Action helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 849, the Scientific Integrity Act. You remember how the Trump Administration EPA stacked its scientific boards with pollution industry hacks? Well, the Scientific Integrity Act would fight that, by making all executive branch agencies develop and enforce a scientific integrity plan that keeps politics out of scientific decisions. In practice, that means polluting corporations won't be able to dominate decisions about stopping pollution, a sentence that probably seems self-evident to you, but a lot of politicians seem to have trouble understanding the whole concept! Plus the bill would keep political employees' grubby mitts off scientific findings and give whistleblowers more power to expose wrongdoing. These are good works, and we should make Congress do them.
The Center for Rights and Dissent helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 6877, the Amir Locke End Deadly No-Knock Warrants Act, which would, as its title indicates, vastly reduce no-knock warrants (and therefore deadly ones). It wouldn't outlaw them -- the court issuing the warrant would have to establish "clear and convincing evidence, supported by particularized facts, that...notice prior to entry would substantially endanger the life or safety of the law enforcement officer or other persons," which is the exception for which any reasonable person would ask -- and which most right-wingers will pretend doesn't exist in the bill, though it's in Sec. 3(a)(2). The bill would also outlaw no-knock warrants for drug cases, which would curtail (though not end) unannounced entry.
Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 2234/S. 1021, the Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (or EACH) Act, which would make federal health care programs cover abortion services, and make federal health care facilities provide access to abortion. Because abortion is a legal medical procedure, that's why! And if we don't provide abortion, we will make women breeders, and we're not much of a civilization if we do that. Pro-lifers would say we're not much of a civilization if we tolerate abortion, but all civilizations have to choose between greater and lesser evils. When men can give birth, and science can progress beyond using abortions to save would-be mothers' lives, we can think about all of this again.
Finally, Drug Policy Alliance helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 3617, the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement (or MORE) Act. Yes, Democrats will bring it up for a vote, thanks to our pressure; now we have to convince our Reps to pass it. They'll quake in fear of Republicans saying they're "soft on crime," but consider that Republicans say we should have fewer laws preventing polluters from befouling our air and water; why don't we call that "soft on crime"? After all, dumping poison in a lake or river hurts far more people than a burglary does; it doesn't feel that way to the burglary victim, obviously, but pollution still hurts more people. We should think of punishing polluters (or banksters, or tax cheats, or Medicare fraudsters) as being "tough on crime." I'll keep saying it until we do.
