Good afternoon, friends! (As always, please let me know if you want me to unsubscribe you from this list.)
Another great day at the West Regional Courthouse on Monday: Ton McCoy and his team of inspired volunteers, John Countryman, Barbara O’ Keefe, Paulo Ayrolla, and Lonnie Supnick, collected 7 voter registration forms (6 Dems and one Ind) and 77 rights restoration petitions! We will be out at the Courthouse again from 10 AM to 2 PM on Monday the 15th and Monday the 22nd. Please let me or Ron (firstname.lastname@example.org or 954-790-3106) know if you can come out and help.
What 217 Republican congressman did last week was despicable! Instead of working with Democrats to fix Obamacare’s problems, they passed, by the slimmest of margins, a bill that would replace the ACA with something that cannot reasonable be called health care coverage. As Indivisible points out, Trumpcare would take health care away from 24 million Americans, increase deductible by and average of $1500, end protections for people with pre-existing conditions, let insurers charge older Americans a whole lot more for health care, cut $880 billion from Medicaid, put lifetime and annual benefit caps back on the table, make women pay more for health insurance than men, and defund Planned Parenthood. And Trumpcare does all this to pay for $600 billion in tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations!

35 of these Republican congressmen are in swing districts which can elect Democrats in 2018. Let’s make each of these congressmen regret their misguided vote! Make a donation today to an organization that will split the donation between each of the eventual Democratic nominees in these 35 swing districts:

And Trump’s firing yesterday of Jim Comey was equally despicable! They made up a reason for firing Comey, but it makes no sense at all. We all know that Trump’s anger and frustration over the investigation is the real reason for sacking the head of the FBI. Trump wants to put an end to the investigation. Here’s what you can do about that (Thanks to Indivisible’s Jewellene Wilson for these numbers):
Call the Deputy Attorney General and demand a special prosecutor! Department Comment Line: 202-353-1555; Department of Justice Main Switchboard: 202-514-2000;
Call Senator Marco Rubio and demand an independent investigation! 305-418-8553 (Miami); 202-224-3041 (Washington, DC);
Thank Senator Bill Nelson for calling for an independent investigation! 954-693-4851 (Davie); 561-514-0189 (WPB); 202-224-5274 (Washington, DC);
Thank Representative Ted Deutch for calling for an independent investigation! 561-470-5440 (Boca); 202-225-3001 (Washington, DC);
Thank Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz for the same! 954-845-1179 (Sunrise); 202-225-7931 (Washington, DC);
and Thank Representative Lois Frankel for the same! 561-998-9045 (Boca); 202-225-9890 (Washington, DC).
And thank you for all you do!
