Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to enact a minimum corporate tax, confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson to our Supreme Court, pass the Future of Water Act and the Comprehensive CREDIT Act, enact a code of ethics for Supreme Court Justices, and electrify our Postal Service's mail truck fleet. 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.
Demand Progress helps you tell your Congressfolk to enact a 15% minimum tax rate on all corporate profits, no matter where they're "earned." I put "earned" in quotation marks not for the usual reason (i.e., do they really earn their money?), but because corporations love pretending they've "earned" all their profits in some untaxed corner of the world rather than in the United States. Remember in 2014, when corporations reported earning more profits in five nations than the entire gross domestic product of those nations? And this year, Elon Musk is the world's richest man, while his corporation, Tesla, will report a loss in the U.S. this year while making big profits outside the U.S. I smell a rat, and Congress needs to root it out.
The National Women's Law Center helps you tell your Senators to confirm D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as our next Supreme Court Justice. All you need know is that her Republican critics in our Senate basically soiled themselves in public trying to attack her -- Sen. Cornyn wouldn't STFU about the "rights" of religious folks to run roughshod over other folks' actual rights, and Sen. Cruz's clumsy attempts to get Judge Jackson to opine on critical race theory were the most absurd grandstanding. The one charge against Judge Jackson that probably gives you the most cause? Under-sentencing in re child porn possession, though Judge Jackson generally followed probation officers' recommendations if not prosecutors'. And their obsession with her work for Guantánamo detainees was horseshit, because Guantánamo is horseshit. If their best can't stick, they should confirm her.
Food and Water Watch helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 7182/S. 3886, the Future of Water Act, which would outlaw water futures trading by banksters. A "future," as you may know, is a contract that compels you to buy or sell a commodity at a predetermined future date and price; if that all sounds a little like a way of getting over on someone, I wouldn't blame you. And a future is speculation, figuratively and literally, and speculating on the sale of one of the two most essential elements on Earth strikes me as profoundly immoral. I wouldn't tolerate almost any futures contracts in my ideal economy, but at least most of them only speculate on one sector or other; we won't all eat pork or beef, but we will all need water, so let's keep that out of speculators' hands, shall we?
Penn PIRG helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 4120, the Comprehensive CREDIT Act. If you've ever tried to fix inaccurate info on your credit report, a near-Sisyphean task according to those who've tried it, then the Comprehensive CREDIT Act would help you, by establishing an appeal process for disputes and allowing courts to give injunctive relief while you get it sorted. The bill would also limit the kinds of medical debt that could appear on your credit report and require credit reporting corporations to provide you with more of your credit information, for free, before you need it (to sign a loan, for example). If this all sounds like Big Gummint forcing corporations do common-sense things, ask yourself why corporations aren't doing the common-sense things already. Where they fail, our government must step in.
Daily Kos helps you tell your Congressfolk to enact a code of ethics for our Supreme Court Justices. Our Supreme Court Justices are the only federal judges who don't have one, and in recent days we've seen why that might be a problem, as we have learned more and more about Virginia Thomas's involvement in the January 6 attempted coup. Mrs. Thomas's husband, of course, is Justice Clarence Thomas, the only Justice to dissent from our Court's ruling allowing our House January 6 Select Committee to get certain White House documents. Doesn't matter if his wife's name was nowhere in those documents, because our highest federal officials need to avoid even the appearance of evil. Making them adhere to a code of ethics will help them do that.
Americans for Financial Reform helps you tell your Congressfolk to require our Postal Service to make at least three-quarters of its trucks electric. The one vehicle you're likely to see every day in America is a mail truck, and they'll never be the most fuel-efficient vehicles you'll see, so we might as well make them pollute less. (Even in West Virginia, which produces nearly all of its electricity from coal, electric trucks won't pump out the tailpipe emissions gas trucks do.) And what's just as bad as Postmaster DeJoy's decision to contract with a Wisconsin corporation to make gas-powered trucks? That same corporation's decision to move truck production to South Carolina so it wouldn't have to use its own union workers in Oshkosh! So, yeah, let's kill this deal.
