Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to reject the American Confidence in Elections Act, pass the Freedom to Vote Act, start punishing price-gouging corporations, and reject the Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century 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.
Civic Shout helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject the so-called American Confidence in Elections (or ACE) Act – also known as the “Big Lie” bill – while the Daily Kos Democracy Project helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass the Freedom to Vote Act instead. Don’t ever be tempted to demand that your Congressfolk just pass a bill that incorporates the best bits of both! The “Big Lie” bill, which would impose Voter ID nationally and let billionaires spend even more money on elections, doesn’t have any good bits. Meanwhile, the Freedom to Vote Act would give us more early voting, less gerrymandering, and less campaign spending; clearly those are good bits.
Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk to start holding corporations accountable for their price-gouging. It’s simple: when you have high inflation and record corporate profits at the same time, as you did for most of last year, then you have corporate price-gouging. We used to hold corporations accountable for this sort of thing, before the “free” marketeers took hold of our civilization, and we need to get back to that post-haste, or else corporations will just keep hurting us forever and ever. The year-over-year inflation rate may be down to 3% at present, but we still can’t let corporations get away with what they’ve done.
Finally, Americans for Financial Reform helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject the so-called Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act, which would not only give handouts to crypto corporations that deserve their bad reputation, but would require our Federal Trade Commission to consider “innovation” whenever it writes new regulations! To quote a phrase, right-wingers have tortured the word “innovation” so that it tells them whatever they want to hear; if this bill passes, pretty much any bankster will be able to claim their new fraudulent product is “innovative,” and thus escape much-needed government scrutiny. Do we really want to “innovate” on the definition of a “safe investment” until it includes mostly unsafe investments?
