Jan. 16, 2018

Daily Action: “[On January 9], President Trump and key members of Congress held a meeting where they proposed cutting family sponsorship and the diversity visa program in order to get a legislative fix for DACA. To cut family sponsorship is to essentially ban families from staying together. Furthermore, many African countries benefit from the diversity visa program. To end that program is to say that black and brown folks are not welcome here. Undocumented young people deserve to ensure that their families are safe and black and brown immigrants deserve to stay in this country!”

National Call-in Day is happening TODAY. Call Congress and demand that they #ValueOurFamilies and pass a #cleanDREAMAct that has #NoFamilyBan and keeps the diversity visa program intact. For more information on how to call-in click on the link below:

Jan. 15, 2018

Daily Action: Rep Jim Bridenstine (OK) has been confirmed in committee for a full senate vote as administrator of NASA. Bridenstine is a climate change denier with no scientific or engineering training, and if confirmed by the Senate, would be the first politician to ever lead NASA. Engineers and Scientists have always led NASA. Call Senators Warer and Kain and tell them to oppose JIM BRIDENSTINE AS NASA Director. He currently is a representative from Oklahoma, with a voting record that benefits the oil and gas industry (Carbon Pollution). There is hope that there won’t be enough votes on the floor if every democrat senator votes against the nomination.

Nov. 1, 2017


With the announcement of the first indictments in the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election by Special Prosecutor Mueller, renewed concerns are emerging about protecting the ongoing investigation from Trump exercising his authority to fire Mueller. Two recently introduced bills would make such a firing much more difficult, if not impossible:

S.1735: The Special Counsel Independence Protection Act, introduced by Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and co-sponsored by Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), would allow a special counsel to be fired only if a federal court first establishes that they had exhibited misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or other good cause for removal.
S.1741: The Special Counsel Integrity Act, introduced by Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and co-sponsored by Senator Chris Coons (D-DE), would also allow the judicial review to take place retroactively by a three-judge panel that could reinstate the special counsel within 14 days.

Oct. 31, 2017

Daily Action: Submit a public comment to the FCC to stop the Sinclair-Tribune merger.
Sinclair Broadcasting, a right-leaning media company known to require its local TV stations to insert “must-run” political commentary masquerading as local news and delivered by trusted local news anchors, has been working to acquire Tribune Media in order to expand its reach. Already the nation’s largest TV broadcast company, Sinclair’s potential merger with Tribune would extend its reach to a colossal 72% of U.S. households and create a media giant capable of opposing the campaigns of progressive candidates nationwide in 2018 elections and beyond.

The FCC is pausing its review of Sinclair Broadcast Group’s proposed merger with Tribune Media until Thursday, November 2nd, so there is still time to submit a public comment to speak out against this merger.

To leave a comment, click on the link below then, click “+ Express” at the bottom of the text box on the left and then fill out the form when it opens. Make sure you press <enter> after typing in your name so the form accepts it. Also, be aware that everything filed is public, so others will be able to see your name and address.

Suggested comments (please edit to make these your own): I strongly oppose the merger of Sinclair Broadcasting and Tribune Media. The merger will expand Sinclair’s reach beyond its legal audience cap of 39% to a massive 72% of US households. The FCC should not bend rules or roll back regulations to allow Sinclair to dominate the US airwaves.…

Daily Action: Donald Trump is working to sabotage Obamacare despite repeated failed attempts to repeal it. The open enrollment period is now the shortest it’s ever been–November 1 to December 15–and Trump slashed the program’s advertising budget.

The administration is purposely withholding information about when and how to sign up for Obamacare to get health insurance for 2018. And people have less time than ever to get enrolled.

Here’s how you can help: You can join an Open Enrollment Street Team! Grab some friends and neighbors, print out materials, and hit the streets to make sure your community knows Open Enrollment is November 1 – December 15.

Oct. 25, 2017

Daily Action: Demand that Congress pass a CHIP funding renewal bill immediately! The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is an essential resource for hardworking American families. The program insures children whose families have incomes that are too high to receive Medicaid yet still need assistance to afford insurance. As of September 30, federal funding for CHIP has ended, leaving millions of children vulnerable (about 8.9 million children were enrolled in CHIP according to a 2016 statistical enrollment report).
Call your Representatives and demand that they support a bipartisan effort to pass a clean CHIP re-authorization bill.

Sept. 29, 2017

Daily Action: Call your Representative in Congress and urge them to vote NO on the SHARE Act, and to encourage there colleagues to do the same.
Next week, Congress is set to vote on The SHARE Act, H.B. 3668, which would roll back current protections that limit the availability of gun silencers, high-powered assault weapons & shotguns, armor-piercing bullets; and would facilitate the interstate transport of guns and ammunition; and limit law enforcement’s ability to curtail gun-trafficking. Click on the link below for more information:…/ARS_Law-Cente…

This is a HORRIBLE bill and it is in play only because Donald Trump Jr. and the NRA are pushing it because it means more money for gun manufacturers. With gun sales declining, they are trying to open up new markets in gun accessories. Keep in mind that Republicans are desperate for a win that plays to their base so they will be pushing this hard.

Daily Action: This is the second time this week this Daily Action has been posted. Because of the importance of doing everything possible to keep this bill from becoming law it is important that we call our senators.

Trump and the Senate Republicans want to make one last push on TrumpCare—a bill known as “Graham-Cassidy”. The senate parliamentarian has ruled that the Republicans must pass their bill by September 30. Democrats are not in control but they can still resist by slowing down Senate business through filibustering and withholding consent to run out the clock. Call your Democratic Senators and tell them to resist.

Now it’s time for them to back up words with action.

Sept. 1, 2017

 Daily/Weekend Action: As you probably have seen on the HRI Facebook Group, the Immigration Issues Committee has put out a call to action to defend DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), which is at grave risk of being cancelled this week. Part of their call asks people to participate this Saturday, September 2, in an ongoing 22-day rally at the White House. We want to have as many people attend as possible to show our support of our immigrant neighbors, and especially the 800,000 people who would be at risk of deportation if DACA is cancelled.

[ ] The pressure on delaying or killing the Trumpcare bill continues. The ruckus from the American people is real and having an impact. And now that the Congressional Budget Office score shows that 22 million vulnerable people will be lose health care, things look bleak for the bill. The Congress wants to go on recess this week, so they may rush approval through. Please continue to pressure lawmakers to kill this turkey. Details are at

[ ] Today’s Daily Action is from Linda Falkerson, HRI Healthcare Interest Group. She said:

The Senate GOP Health Care Bill is out and the bottom line is Medicaid funding is slashed, premiums will go up, subsidies will be lowered and taxes for the wealth are repealed.

I called the offices of swing state Senators and left a personal message on how the Senate healthcare bill will affect my daughter. You can do the same. Personal stories are most effective. No need to tell ’em where you live, it’s voicemail!

Tell Senators Warner and Kaine not to let Mitch McConnell take away our healthcare while the country is focused on Comey’s testimony. Call (844) 241-1141 and for details.

June 7, 2017

Tomorrow at 10am former FBI Director James Comey will testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee and today’s Daily Action is to make sure that they are asking Comey the right questions by calling (844) 241-1141.

It’s important that they focus on both Comey’s interactions with Trump and the progress of the investigation into Russia’s interference with the 2016 elections. Make sure these questions or any others that you have, are on their radar:
-Did Trump attempt to interfere with the investigation?
-In his letter firing Comey, Trump says that Comey told him that he was not under investigation by the FBI – is this true?
-Was Comey ever aware of the fact that Trump was recording their conversations?
-In Comey’s judgment, is there evidence of Russian interference with the 2016 elections?
These are a few of the many questions the Committee will hopefully ask tomorrow. Make the call to keep them accountable and above all, make sure they know that this hearing is extremely important to you.
Even if you don’t feel comfortable suggesting questions, make your voice heard simply by telling them the importance of this hearing and that you are counting on them to follow the truth wherever it leads.

[  ] Here we go again! The Republicans are coming after Obamacare and this time, the Freedom Caucus says they could support the revised language of a replacement bill. Tell your representative we stopped them in March & we’ll do it again! Details are here:

April 27

[  ] Sh-t is hitting the fan. The Freedom Caucus has just announced it will support the latest far-right salvo in the battle to repeal and replace Obamacare, putting legislation within reach of passing in the House. The latest changes let states easily opt out of ACA requirements that insurers (1) not charge people higher premiums just because they have a pre-existing condition and (2) offer a comprehensive set of essential health benefits. The idea is so bad that the draft proposal actually exempted members of Congress and their staffs from loss of these consumer protections. They have only backed off on that part after the press started sniffing around and making a stink about the exemption.

TIME TO START CALLING OUR REPRESENTATIVES. Please take two minutes to call Barbara Comstock and Gerry Connolly to tell them to stand firm against this latest outrage. Start today and keep it up.

Barbara Comstock: (202) 225-5136 or (703) 404-6903
Gerry Connolly: (202) 225-1492 or (703) 256-3071

April 26

[  ] House Republicans have yet another attack on working Americans up their sleeve. The so-called “Working Families Flexibility Act”, or HR 1180, threatens overtime pay for all.

The bill allows employers to offer paid time off in place of overtime pay. Many people count on overtime pay to make up for stagnant wages, giving them a shot at more income to provide for their families.

Write your representative today and tell them to reject the “Working Families Flexibility Act” and maintain overtime protections for millions of working people.

(Thanks to Daily KOS for this post.)

April 25

[  ] Ask Rep. Barbara Comstock to strongly oppose the MacArthur Amendment to the AHCA. This amendment uses limited waivers to undermine minimum health care benefits and protections for people with pre-existing conditions. This tactic may win votes from the Freedom Caucus, but it hurts constituents in the 10th District. Trump recently also threatened to withhold federal subsidies for the ACA in an attempt to bring Democrats to the bargaining table. If she is truly a moderate, she will publicly reject this kind of brinksmanship which threatens our health care. Right now, her silence leaves her constituents questioning her resolve. (Thank you Indivisible VA District 10)

April 24

[  ] Contact your representative to say NO to the Mexican border wall. Besides the fact that it is a bizarre, inappropriate, and non-working approach to the problem, the U.S. taxpayer will be saddled with the astronomical cost (contrary to Trump’s campaign promise). If we were smart enough to reject the Bridge to Nowhere, why are we falling for this gigantic folly?
