WASHINGTON REPORT FOR
5/6/2019

Your actions make a difference, so thanks for being a part of our action team every week!

This week, there are FOUR separate action items.

Call to Action #1

Complete our Reach Them & Teach Them survey! This is the program whereby we will train YOU on various issues and policies that the country will be discussing as we head into 2020, so that you can persuade others to support our values. But, we cannot create the best trainings or tools without your input! Please fill out the survey in its entirety – there are three sections, and we need all of them filled out in order to create materials that you want!

Call to Action #2

Please share the following post on Facebook and/or Twitter in order to begin pushing back on these new, ridiculous attempts to drum up more conspiracy theories against President Trump. If you would like hear a great analysis of the latest development in this divisive and deranged witch hunt, listen to this podcast by Ben Shapiro – it’s free!

Simply click to share on your Facebook or Twitter accounts, or if you prefer, download the graphic to your computer and upload it to your accounts, making sure to copy and paste the text as well before you post.

#DerangedDemocrats divide America, doing exactly what Putin wants, destroying the fabric of our nation for political power and gain. End the #WitchHunt. Put #AmericaFirst. Stop the #DivisiveDemocrats.

Call to Action #3

Sign the petition to urge President Trump to signal his support for H.R. 1910, the Export-Import Bank Termination Act. We need him to send a message of opposition to the Export-Import Bank–to let America know he is still committed to draining the swamp.

Call to Action #4

Please call the following Senators, as well as your own Senators, and urge them to vote AGAINST confirmation of any of the Export-Import Bank nominees during this week’s confirmation votes. If the Senate confirms even one — ANY one — of these three nominees, the Export-Import Bank board of directors will have a full quorum again for the first time since 2015, and that will mean the Export-Import Bank will once again be allowed to guarantee large loans. Crony capitalists should not be doling out taxpayer dollars to favored companies! A short sample script is included below.

Call Script

Hello, my name is [Your Name] and I’m calling from [Your City, State] to urge Senator [Senator’s Name] to vote against all Export-Import Bank nominees. The Export-Import Bank is crony capitalism, straight up. Our country is over 20 trillion dollars in debt, Social Security and Medicare are nearly insolvent, and spending overall continues to increase. The Export-Import Bank should never be reauthorized, and that starts by refusing to confirm the nominees. Republicans say they are the party of fiscal responsibility and free markets, so it’s time to act like it and live up to your platform. The grassroots will take note of how the Senator votes on the nominees. Thank you.

Bonus Action Item

Use the National Association of Scholar’s toolkit to take additional action to reform the Higher Education Act to include protections for freedom of speech and association on college campuses.
