Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to raise taxes on the rich, help more Americans get health insurance, fund conservation and energy efficiency efforts, and pass the Pregnant Workers Fairness 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.
Americans for Tax Fairness helps you tell your Senators to strengthen and pass the Millionaire’s Surtax from last year’s Build Back Better Act. The Millionaire’s Surtax would tax income above $10 million at an additional 5% (making an effective tax rate of 42% on that income) and tax income above $25 million at an additional 8% (making an effective tax rate of 45%). But some of our Senators want to lower those rates, when they should be levying such surtaxes on income above $1 million. It is a "Millionaire’s Surtax," after all! Most Americans want higher taxes on the rich, so our Senators should do our will, not the will of their biggest donors, who do not outnumber us.
Americans for Tax Fairness also helps you tell your Senators to keep expanded Affordable Care Act subsidies so that three million more Americans can continue to have health insurance. Our House already passed legislation to keep these subsidies going, so all our Senate has to do is pass that very same bill, easy-peasy. They need not attach poison-pill amendments or complain about the cost or say "just get a job" or say "I just can’t get there"; they need only pass the bill. It’s not like constituents who need the subsidies are "lazy." It’s more like the health insurers charging whatever they like just because they can are lazy! There. I said it, and I'm glad.
NETWORK, the national Catholic social justice lobby, helps you tell your Congressfolk to close the Medicaid coverage gap, where two million Americans make too much to get Medicaid but not enough to get Affordable Care Act subsidies, and so don’t have health insurance. Sounds pretty absurd, right? Like the Medicare "donut hole" and the Social Security payroll tax ceiling, the gap exists because Congressfolk negotiated to win votes on the bills that created these programs, and given that exactly zero Republicans voted for the Affordable Care Act, this gap should seem even more absurd. Close the gap, and two million more Americans don’t have to lie awake at night wondering if they can make ends meet.
Stand.Earth helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 425/S. 1639, which would help fund conservation and energy efficiency programs. President Biden has lately invoked the Defense Production Act not just for baby formula but also for renewable energy products like tariff-addled solar panels; right-wingers will squeal TEH BLACK HELICOPTURZ!!!!!, but President Biden has done the right thing with lawful authority already granted to him by our Congressfolk. Now they just have to reauthorize a program that (among other things) helps buildings get more renewable-friendly, which also makes them less pollution-friendly and saves money. Who could be against all of that? Besides a hysterical right-winger, I mean.
Finally, the National Women’s Law Center helps you tell your Senators to pass H.R. 1065/S. 1486, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, which would force workplace bosses to make reasonable accommodations for pregnant workers, like more sit-down work and more bathroom breaks. Anyone who’s ever had an enlarged prostate should be able to understand how a woman carrying something considerably larger in her abdomen needs to pee more, and a boss who "just can’t find" sit-down work for a pregnant employee probably isn't trying hard enough. With great power comes great responsibility, right? And to right-wingers telling hysterical stories about what pregnant workers will be able to "get away with," you need only say this: read the bill.
