Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to expand Social Security and cap interest rates for all Americans, and tell big corporations to stop donating to Republican insurrectionists. 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.
Social Security Works helps you tell your Congressfolk to expand Social Security benefits by $200/month and pay for it by raising the payroll tax ceiling, so income over $250,000 can be taxed into the system. With Rep. Larson (D-CT) strangely uninterested in moving his Social Security 2100 Act through his own committee, Sens. Sanders (I-VT) and Warren (D-MA) and Rep. DeFazio (D-OR) have advanced this proposal, and though it leaves a donut hole of income between $147,000 and $250,000, this proposal will improve Social Security’s finances and let our seniors (which will one day include, ahem, all of us) enjoy a more dignified and secure retirement. It’d sure be better than privatizing it! As our stock market proves every time it takes a tumble.
Americans for Financial Reform helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 5974/S. 2508, the Veterans and Consumers Fair Credit Act, which would cap all consumer credit at 36%, because our laws cap consumer credit at 36% for our veterans. You see, getting the cap in there for veterans, was always a way of getting a cap on our law books (who would refuse help to vulnerable veterans, after all?), so that one day we could all get a cap, so no one has to suffer the 300% death spiral payday loan ever again. Now I’d make that cap a lot lower! And if I did, banksters could still make money, just not buy-their-own-Congressperson money. But passing this bill will get a cap for everyone, and that’s better than what we’ve got.
Finally, the Daily Kos Democracy Project helps you tell big corporations such as FedEx and Visa to stop shoveling big campaign donations to any Republican who votes against certifying the 2020 election. Because voting against certifying that election because of all of Donald Trump’s “stop the steal” rubbish makes those 147 Republican politicians the lowest of the low, and they don’t deserve any money, let alone the cush job they have obstructing things the American people tell them to do. Any of these “patriots” voting for Medicare drug price negotiation, for example? No, none of them are. And corporations shouldn’t give them money, particularly after saying they wouldn’t.
