Long story short: tell President Biden to use all his legal power to make monkeypox vaccines more accessible, and tell your Congressfolk to conduct Indo-Pacific trade talks transparently and pass the Judiciary 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.
Public Citizen helps you tell President Biden to use all his legal power to make monkeypox vaccines more accessible, and not just to Americans – if the world can’t get the vaccine, monkeypox is going to continue to bite us in the ass. I just can’t remember where we might have already learned this lesson recently! You would also ask President Biden to use the Defense Production Act to produce more vaccines and get them out more quickly. I guess right-wingers will say “hey, that’s not what that law’s for!” But Jesus Mary and Joseph if it’s not for defending our nation against epidemics and pandemics, then what is it for? Making defense contractors rich?
Global Trade Watch helps you insist on transparency during negotiations on the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework. The Biden Administration says this’ll be different from the other “free” trade deals, because it’ll be “worker-centered,” but we’ll believe it when we see it, and if they won’t let us see it, we won’t believe it. Did they not learn their lesson from the Trans-Pacific “Partnership”? People hate “free” trade deals that nullify our laws and outsource our jobs, and they hate “free” trade deal negotiations that “must” be “secret” even more. They “must” be “secret” because they’re lying to us! They could fix that – but they won’t, unless we get in their grills about it.
Finally, Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 2584/S. 1141, the Judiciary Act, which would enable President Biden to add four new Supreme Court Justices, for a total of 13. 13 just so happens to be the number of federal appeals courts we have, and I’ve long advocated each Supreme Court Justice handling one appeals court, but let’s be frank: this current Court is out of control. They want to take everything from us, using whatever BS argument they can. The good news? More Americans agree with us now that Roe v. Wade, and thus the legal right to an abortion, is gone. So we’ve got to make our will clear.
