5 Minute Action for Tuesday, 3/28: Head Exploding; But Stay Focused

We’re a little long winded today.

We have to stay focused despite yesterday being another head-exploding day. Among the crazy was:

  • Climate change comes off the agenda (quote from White House official:  “To the extent that the economy is strong and growing and you have prosperity, that is the best way to protect the environment.” HUH?);
  • $1B in White House budget ‘supplement’ to be spent on just 62 miles of The Wall.
  • Jared Kushner is promoted. Per Huff Post:  “So, if you’re keeping track, Jared Kushner, who comes to Washington with no government experience, no policy experience, no diplomatic experience, and business experience limited to his family’s real estate development firm, a brief stint as a newspaper publisher, and briefly bidding to acquire the Los Angeles Dodgers, will be working on trade, Middle East policy in general, an Israel-Palestine peace deal more specifically, reforming the Veterans Administration, and solving the opioid crisis.”)

Every day there will be similarly troubling actions, as we’ve cataloged over the past two months. We can expect more of the same…every day. The question is, what is the longer game? We come back to the post from Saturday, 3/25, slightly revised.

“THE ART OF THE DEAL, NO TRUMP TAX RETURNS, NO TRUMP TAX REFORM OR INFRASTRUCTURE!”

Trump’s taxes will help understand his conflicts of interest, financial motives and cronyism. Trump is now combining infrastructure spending with tax reform in an effort to get both sides on board – don’t let your representative fall for this without making a deal for his tax returns…and transparency.

TODAY’s 5 Minute Action:

Step 1:  Get used to saying and writing:  “Art of the Deal:  No Trump Tax Returns, No Trump Tax Reform or Infrastructure”. Let’s continue with another personal Facebook post and a call to the House Ways and Means Committee (fax if you haven’t done that yet):

  • Facebook:  Post the message on your Facebook page
  • Call or fax (if you haven’t already) the House Ways and Means committee member from your state.
    • Find your member(s) by clicking here:  https://waysandmeans.house.gov/committee-members/
    • Click on the committee member name to find their phone number and place the call.
    • Or fax them by clicking here – House. Remember to confirm the fax via an email you will receive from FaxZero.
    • Script:  “I am (name) from (zip). Tell Trump it’s the Art of the Deal:  No Trump Tax Returns, No Trump Tax Reform or Infrastructure. I expect you to stand firm on this.” 

BREATHE AND STEP FORWARD!
