As predicted, both houses have passed the Tax Scam. It is expected that Trump will sign it before Christmas. While it’s infuriating, we should also remember that, though this should have been a cakewalk for them, it actually took them 334 days to barely shove it through. From Indivisible Guide: “Indivisibles held 351 actions to protest the tax scam. You made 323,563 phone calls to progressives in key red states to amp up the pressure and 23,512 calls were made to members of Congress. You dragged this fight out to the bitter end and made it as painful as possible for them to betray their constituents. Take a minute to grieve this loss, but be proud of everything you did to fight for justice over the last few weeks.”
ACTION for District 3:
If you are a constituent of Jaime Herrera Beutler, please call her every day at 360- 695-6292 to demand that she support passing the Dream Act by the end of the year!
