Congress works for us.
DAY 31 ACTION: Learn how to marry Tea Party tactics with a progressive vision for our country.
Congress is on recess this week. (Wouldn’t that be nice?) They need to hear from us!
From a capacity standpoint, it’s understandable why Republicans in Congress can’t find the time to investigate Trump Administration ties to Russia. After all, they are too busy gutting sensible safeguards, moving to strip more than 20 million people of their health insurance, censoring Elizabeth Warren, and jamming through the EPA Administrator’s nomination to beat the release of emails describing his shadowy ties to oil.
But it is worth questioning their priorities. Do the values of the current Republican leadership reflect the majority of Americans? We think not. And with Congress out on recess and back in their home states, it’s the perfect time to let them know we oppose their agenda.
A group of former Hill staffers have published a guide for taking back Congress. The strategies are ripped from the Tea Party playbook – go local, be persistent, focus on defense – but they advocate using these strategies to win back a more tolerant, hopeful, peaceful, and just America.
