#TakeAction – April 23, 2019

Good morning. Let’s #TakeAction for Tuesday, April 23, 2019.

🔶 Ask Congresswoman Schrier to support Medicare for All (H.R.1384)
🔶 Call Rep. Schrier and Urge Her To Support H.Res. 257
🔶 Fight All Forms of Family Separation

1. (ACTION) Ask Congresswoman Schrier to support Medicare for All (H.R.1384)

  • Action: Call Congresswoman Kim Schrier, ask her to cosponsor the Medicare for All Act.
  • Date: On-going
  • Background:
    Health care is an issue close to the hearts of Indivisible groups, and Americans more broadly. Exit polls from the 2018 blue wave suggest that Democrats won in large part because voters were worried after months of Republican attacks on our health care system. Now that Democrats have won control of the House, it’s time for them to demonstrate that they are prepared to be both leaders in undoing the damage done by Congressional Republicans and the Trump administration and in reforming our health care system to guarantee health care coverage for all. Representative Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) has introduced the Medicare for All Act, which will not only ensure universal coverage—it will improve the quality of coverage, while allowing the US to better control the cost of care.

2. (ACTION) Call Rep. Schrier and Urge Her To Support H.Res. 257, Calling For the Judiciary Committee to Investigate Whether President Trump Should be Impeached

3. (ACTION) Fight All Forms of Family Separation

  • Date: On-going
  • Action: Call Rep. Schrier’s, Senator Murray’s, and Senator Cantwell’s Washington state office to urge them to support immigrant, refugee, and Muslim communities.
  • Background:
    Trump will continue to attack immigrants. And the biggest fights we’ll see over the next two years will likely be over the funding levels for those agencies implementing Trump’s out-of-control deportation machine. However, House Democrats have introduced a series of bills that would undo some of the damage to immigrant, refugee, and Muslim communities and provide relief for those at risk of deportation.
