THURSDAY 5/25/17 CALLS TO ACTION: Make it SNAPpy

We’re still learning all the new and creative ways that the Trump budget is going to hurt us. It’s almost as if Republicans in Congress sat down and thought “what would be the most cruel and tone-deaf ideas we could possibly come up with?”  Then they formed a budget around those ideas. Paul Ryan must be cackling with glee while thinking about children going hungry and old people having to choose between medicine and food. Not to worry, though, soon he’ll cut out Medicare for senior citizens and they won’t have to worry about making that choice anymore. Whew!

Call your members of Congress: Richard Burr, Thom Tillis and Mark Walker and let them know that we will not stand for our fellow North Carolinians and fellow Americans being treated like second class citizens just because Republicans in Congress want to cut taxes for the wealthy.

SCRIPT: I am calling from _________ in Randolph County and I want to urge Rep/Sen _________ to do a better job in helping the poor, indigent and disabled in our country. If this budget proposed by the President and touted by Mick Mulvaney is supposed to be compassionate conservatism in action, then we want no part of it. The fact that the party in power is fine with taking food out of the mouths of children and the elderly by eliminating SNAP benefits is exactly the kind of tone-deaf move that we have come to expect from the GOP. People don’t care about deficits, they care about feeding their families. We are paying close attention to how you vote on this and we, in turn, will vote accordingly come election time. Thank you.

Trump’s budget would cut off food for poor people if they have too many kids – “In a separate, closely related measure, Trump’s budget also proposes eliminating the minimum SNAP allotment of $16 per month for households with one or two people. The individuals who receive the SNAP minimum are most frequently low-income seniors and people with disabilities who have smaller households and higher incomes relative to others in their cohort.”

Begrudging seniors and disabled people $16 a month is the pinnacle of Republican greed and hubris.

Donald Trump to Hungry Seniors: Drop Dead – “And at his March news conference, Mulvaney disdainfully told reporters Meals on Wheels didn’t help the people it was designed to serve. “Meals on Wheels sounds great,” but “to take that federal money and give it to the states, and say, ‘Look, we want to give you money for programs that don’t work’—I can’t defend that anymore.”

What a guy.

In the meantime, while our lawmakers are throwing the poor and indigent under the bus, we need to find a way to keep these folks fed and housed. Visit the following link for a very thorough list of food pantries and other places in Randolph County that provide assistance for clothing, utilities, emergency shelter, etc. Please share this link with anyone you think might need help.

Who do I call if I need….

WEDNESDAY 5/24/17 CALLS TO ACTION: Hit ’em where it hurts

Let’s mix things up a bit today. Instead of calling legislators, lets see about getting some sanctions against horrible people in the media. For instance, Sleeping Giants has made it their mission to take down Breitbart and other racist, anti-Semitic organizations by putting pressure on the people who advertise on their websites.

Here is their most recent call to action:

If you scroll down through their Facebook timeline there’s all sorts of good stuff they’re doing to put pressure on companies who advertise on sites that condone hate speech.

 

Stick it to Hannity

I probably don’t have to tell you how odious Sean Hannity is, but lately he’s been a bootlicker extraordinaire for Trump, finding any way possible to contort the truth about Trump’s ties to Russia. Hannity has also recently been hammering the fake news story that a DNC staffer, Seth Rich,  was mysteriously killed during election season. Hannity is saying that this staffer is another on the Clinton Death List (remember that nonsense?). The Rich family has sent a cease and desist letter to Fox, but Hannity keeps on flapping his gums.

Then there’s this list of advertisers on Sean Hannity’s show. https://www.mediamatters.org/research/2017/05/23/these-are-sean-hannitys-advertisers/216607

I’d be willing to bet all these companies have Facebook pages or Twitter accounts. I’m sure they have contact numbers on their websites. If you’re feeling froggy, why not give some of them a call, email or social media callout. I’ll put links for the Facebook pages for first few in the list:

STATE:

Cherie Berry. You see her picture in elevators across the state. Who knew she was content to let unscrupulous employers engage in wage theft from their workers?

Report: NC employers stealing $316 million per year from employees; Labor Commissioner faulted – “The severity of minimum wage violations in North Carolina may come as less of a surprise given that the state’s elected labor commissioner during the period studied showed little interest in enforcing wage laws. An investigation by The Charlotte Observer noted that during the commissioner’s 15-year tenure, her office “sued companies for failing to pay wages only 35 times, an average of less than 2.5 times a year” (Locke 2015) [See The Reluctant Regulator]

They don’t make it easy to get in touch with the Labor Commissioner but here are some links I’ve found:

Sample tweets: 

@CherieBerry2016 NC workers must be able to trust their Labor Commissioner to go to bat for them. #WageTheft

SCRIPT: My name is ________ calling from Randolph County. I have heard some disturbing news, that Commissioner Berry has been less than interested in pursuing cases of wage theft perpetrated on the hard-working people of North Carolina by certain employers. If we cannot trust our labor commissioner to go to bat for laborers themselves, exactly what are we paying her for?

MONDAY 5/22/17 CALLS TO ACTION: Education is a human right

Why have smart, low-income NC students been excluded from advanced classes? – “In theory, such things as race, culture and family background shouldn’t limit a child’s likelihood of being labeled gifted. In reality, the results of “intelligence” tests consistently yield the same advantage for white, Asian and non-poor students as traditional academic exams do. In 2015-16, for instance, CMS identified roughly 30 percent of white and Asian students in grades 3-5 as gifted, compared with about 4 percent of black and Hispanic students in those grades. The district doesn’t report that data based on income, but black and Hispanic students have significantly higher poverty rates.”

One of the main reasons that poverty and lower performing schools go hand in hand is that fact that school funding is tied to property taxes in this country. Older, poorer neighborhoods generate less property tax money and therefore the schools receive less funding in return. Wealthy neighborhoods pay more in property tax and receive more funding.

Trump’s Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has made it her life’s mission to drive public school into the ground so that her wealthy friends can siphon off government dollars for their school privatization schemes. Funding for college work-study programs would be cut in half, public-service loan forgiveness would end and hundreds of millions of dollars that public schools could use for mental health, advanced coursework and other services would vanish under a Trump administration plan to cut $10.6 billion from federal education initiatives, according to budget documents obtained by The Washington Post.”

At the state level, we saw how vindictive Republicans in the Senate rammed through an amendment, dreamed up behind closed doors, which cut education funding in Democratic districts. “Here’s another nugget: The amendment stripped seven counties, represented by Democrats, from a program that financially supports teacher assistants working on a college degree.” 

The mission today is to call anyone and everyone from President down to General Assembly and let them know that you support a strong PUBLIC education system. We will not stand for them making education inaccessible to poor students, minority students, immigrant students or any other arbitrary box they try to lump our children into. Education is a human right and our legislators need to get with that program or get out.

FRIDAY 5/19/17 CALLS TO ACTION: He says we’re not loud enough!

FEDERAL:

Just one call to action today, regarding healthcare.

House May Be Forced to Vote Again on GOP’s Obamacare Repeal Bill – “According to several aides and other procedural experts, if Republicans send the bill to the Senate now and the CBO later concludes it doesn’t save at least $2 billion, it would doom the bill and Republicans would have to start their repeal effort all over with a new budget resolution. “

Here’s how health care costs could rise for half-million in NC under GOP health plan

Follow this link for a very helpful map which shows the difference between subsidies with the Affordable Care Act and the subsidies under the Republican Insurance Plan.

http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/politics-government/article151029912.html

“If this became law, there’s no question a lot of North Carolinians would lose their insurance because they wouldn’t be able to afford it,” said Jonathan Oberlander, who teaches health care policy at UNC-Chapel Hill. “There would be a pretty substantial erosion of heath coverage in North Carolina.”

Spoiler Alert: Randolph County subsidies would be $12,000+ less under the Republican Insurance Plan for a family of four making $40,000/yr.

Call Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis

Senator Burr’s office is currently soliciting input from constituents on the health care bill. This is a great opportunity to share your thoughts on what you like or don’t like about the AHCA or ACA, or even what you’d like to see health care in America look like in general. This is how democracy should work – representatives taking our input on legislation and making an informed decision based on constituent feedback.

Let’s take advantage of this opportunity.

Email Rachel_Soclof@help.senate.gov to either set up a time to talk by phone OR, better yet, give her a list of questions/issues you’d like the Senator to formally respond to.

The more people she hears from, the better. Thanks to Stronger NC for this call to action

RUSSIA AGAIN 🙄:

Call Senators, Burr and Tillis

BURR SCRIPT: I am a constituent calling from ____________ in NC. I want to let Sen. Burr know that he needs to get on the ball about investigating the connections between Donald Trump and Russia, with regards to their tampering with our elections. The Senator has the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the Honorable Senator Sam Ervin by putting country before party and investigating Donald Trump to the fullest extent possible. We are watching what the Senator does with the responsibility he now holds. Either get moving or get out of the way. Thank you for your time.

TILLIS SCRIPT: I am a constituent calling from ____________ in NC. I wanted to make it known that we expect Senator Tillis to urge his fellow Senator, Richard Burr to investigate Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. Senator Tillis has an opportunity here to be a hero by pressing for a fully staffed and operational investigative committee. History will not look kindly upon those who stand by and do nothing while our republic is handed to the Russians. Thank you for your time.

**As you may have heard, Thom Tillis had a medical emergency yesterday at a charity event in DC. Please use this opportunity to wish him well. We may disagree policy-wise, but he his a human being and we don’t wish him ill health. If anything we hope this will help him realize how important affordable, accessible healthcare is for everyone, not just Senators.

 

REP. WALTER B. JONES CALLS FOR INDEPENDENT COMMISSION:

Send a thank you to Rep. Walter Jones R-NC 3, for signing on to a bill calling for an independent commission to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia.

Too bad NC6’s Mark Walker hasn’t the stomach to agree. Maybe you should mention it to him. Be careful, though, he might try to duck the question.

PALLING AROUND WITH DICTATORS:

As if telling the Russians everything he knows or thinks he knows wasn’t enough, Trump’s ne’er-do-well friends are now allowing their bodyguards to come into our country and beat up Kurdish protesters in Washington DC.

Turkish Dictator’s Suited Thugs Beat Up Protesters on Embassy Row – “Shortly following a White House visit by Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who recently consolidated power for himself in a narrow, contested referendum vote, witnesses say Erdogan’s bodyguards attacked protesters carrying the Kurdish PYD flag outside the Turkish ambassador’s D.C. residence.”

Evidently this isn’t the first time Erdogan’s thugs have attacked protesters in the US. In March 2016, Erdogan’s security guards reportedly attacked demonstrators and journalists outside the Brookings Institution in Washington. What a guy!

 


Call the White House Comment Line at at 202-456-1111 and let them know that this kind of behavior is unacceptable and that the Turkish president and his entourage need to be unceremoniously given the boot from this country because of this.

STATE: 

Here’s a nice little Throwback Thursday tidbit from Stronger NC: Stories of Resistance in NC We North Carolinians have never been ones to just sit down and do what we’re told.

 

 PHIL BERGER DOESN’T LIKE PARTISANS (lol, wut?)

There are reports coming from resisters in activist groups around our area saying that the person answering the phone in Phil Berger’s office has been grouchy and hateful to callers who do not agree with Sen. Berger’s viewpoints. Being the President Pro Tempore of the NC Senate, you’d think Mr. Berger would want to hear from all North Carolinians and not shirk his duty as a legislator and head of the Senate. Give Mr. Berger’s office a call about the Senate budget recently passed in the middle of the night, which cut education funding from Democratic districts. If the person answering the phone is hateful to you, let your friends on social media and in real life know about it. Last I checked, our taxes pay their salaries. They work for us.

SCRIPT:  I am a North Carolina resident. I wanted to let the Senator know how underhanded the 3am vote to cut education funding in the districts of Senate Democrats was. Politicians who behave like this are the reason people hate politicians. These kinds of actions do all North Carolinians a disservice and are an embarrassment to our state, the Senator’s district and the Republican Party. I urge the Senator to start putting people before his party and make better decisions for our state and district. Thank you.

By these statistics, your committee should have six women, four minorities, two disabled people, and one gay person. A group of white, straight men could harm those excluded from the conversation. Please make it right.

Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador – “Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United States only learned through the espionage capabilities of a key partner. He did not reveal the specific intelligence gathering method, but described how the Islamic State was pursuing elements of a specific plot and how much harm such an attack could cause under varying circumstances. Most alarmingly, officials said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat.”

Can you imagine Congressional Republicans if Hillary Clinton had engaged in this same kind of behavior? They’d have had a witch ducking and a burning at the stake before nightfall.

 

OTHER NEWS:

Sinclair requires stations, including KOMO, to air segments tilting to the right – “Since November 2015, Sinclair has ordered its stations to run a daily segment from a “Terrorism Alert Desk” with updates on terrorism-related news around the world. During the election campaign last year, it sent out a package that suggested in part that voters should not support Hillary Clinton because the Democratic Party was historically pro-slavery. More recently, Sinclair asked stations to run a short segment in which Scott Livingston, the company’s vice president for news, accused the national news media of publishing “fake news stories.”

Just another part of Republicans’ plan to consolidate power and control all forms of government and media.

REPUBLICANS STICKING IT TO THE POOR:

Republicans plan massive cuts to programs for the poor

“House Republicans just voted to slash hundreds of billions of dollars in health care for the poor as part of their Obamacare replacement. Now, they’re weighing a plan to take the scalpel to programs that provide meals to needy kids and housing and education assistance for low-income families.”

 

“Atop that, GOP budget writers will also likely include Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) proposal to essentially privatize Medicare in their fiscal 2018 budget, despite Trump’s unwavering rejection of the idea. While that proposal is more symbolic and won’t become law under this budget, it’s just another thorny issue that will have Democrats again accusing Republicans of “pushing Granny off the cliff.”

CALL MARK WALKER

SCRIPT: I am a constituent from District 6, calling to urge Rep. Walker to think long and hard before voting for the current budget bill in the House. With the President’s wish list for military and infrastructure it is a given that Republicans, as usual, will want to cut social programs to the bone. After the tone-deaf passage of the AHCA, which is predicted to kick 24 million people off their health insurance plans, I would hope Rep. Walker would want to cultivate a more compassionate image. Hopefully he will put country and constituents before Party for this vote. Thank you for your time.

 

STATE:
