We Say: On November 8th, voters decided that the status quo is unacceptable and gave Republicans a mandate to roll back 8 disastrous years of Obama governance.
It is time for our Senators and Representatives to take action on three important goals. You may want to send a letter/email such as the example below to your Senator (and also to your Representative, deleting the third paragraph).
Texas voters: Here is a handy link (Who Represents Me?) to connect to the websites of your U.S. senators and U.S. representative. From their websites, click on the “Contact” tab or link to get in touch with them. Familiarize yourselves with their websites–not all are set up the same way–and you’ll find simple ways to contact them via email and social media. Feel free to copy-and paste (or edit) our suggested message* or simply write your own.
*Please Note: When writing your U.S. representative, please delete the third paragraph of our suggested message as it applies to the Senate only.
Dear Senator ___________:
Please commit to achieving these three goals in the current lame-duck session:
- Pass a simple, short-term Continuing Resolution that funds the federal government until Donald Trump takes office. (This will enable Congress to negotiate spending levels and other priorities with a Republican President.)
- Use the Budget Reconciliation Process to deliver an Obamacare repeal bill for President Trump to sign upon taking office. (After full repeal, pass a replacement plan to reduce costs, restore consumer choice, strengthen doctor-patient relations, etc., and a budget that lowers spending levels and achieves other conservative priorities.)
- Oppose all Obama judicial nominees. (Exercise the Senate’s “Advice and Consent” role for a SCOTUS nominee made by Mr. Trump.)
