This Week's Actions: Two Opportunities to Be Heard

"Paul Ryan holds multiple town hall meetings during Congressional recess, listens to constituents."

Great headline, right? Unfortunately, it's not going to happen. Congress is out of session this week, but Paul Ryan isn't holding any public events. Instead, he's holding fundraisers in Texas. 

We are listening to you, though. 

Many of you have been busy since the election visiting Paul Ryan's offices, calling his (switched off?) phones, and writing postcards. Keep it up! The more of us that rise up to be heard, the harder it will be for Ryan to ignore us. 

We would like to share two opportunities for you to be heard: 

  • RSVP for the Town Hall meeting on February 26. Sponsored by Forward Kenosha, this is an opportunity for people of Paul Ryan's district to speak up about what matters to them. Paul has been invited, but no word on whether he'll show. 
  • Share how a healthcare repeal will hurt your family. Paul Ryan's healthcare policies will hurt the people of his district, and we need to tell those stories. A real story from a neighbor is more powerful than all the commercials a campaign can buy, and we want to hear from you. 

It's easy for Paul Ryan to ignore us when he sits in an office thousands of miles away, surrounded by other millionaires. Let's make sure he hears us, even if he doesn't come to visit. 

Actions: Week of February 12, 2017

Remember, the best way to influence your elected official is to visit their offices and to call and speak with their staffers. 

THE RECESS IS COMING!

The Congressional Recess for February is coming up during the week of February 19. Stay tuned for opportunities to take action!

INVESTIGATE MICHAEL FLYNN'S COMMUNICATIONS WITH RUSSIA (LINK)
(call Paul Ryan, Ron Johnson, and Tammy Baldwin)

Michael Flynn, national security advisor to the Trump administration, contacted Russian officials prior to President Trump’s inauguration. Not only did Flynn act illegally, his relations with Russia continue to reveal a troubling relationship between the Trump camp and Russia. These actions must not only be condemned, but also congressionally investigated.

OPPOSE STEVE BANNON'S ROLE ON THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL (LINK)
(call Paul Ryan, Ron Johnson, and Tammy Baldwin)

Call your Senators/Representative today and tell them to cosponsor legislation to keep Steve Bannon out of the Situation Room and ensure that national security decisions are not influenced by political considerations.

ELECTION ASSISTANCE COMMISSION (LINK)
(call Paul Ryan, Ron Johnson, and Tammy Baldwin)

The House recently passed out of committee the “Electoral Assistance Commission Termination Act” (HR 634), which would eliminate the Electoral Assistance Commission (EAC), the only institution that oversees the security of voting systems, and states’ compliance with federal voting registration laws.
