Indivisible | Recess Work

October 16, 2017

The #TrumpTaxScam is in full swing. Just as they did with health care, Senate Republicans are attempting to ram through tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires by passing a budget resolution that creates the “rules” for reconciliation (50 Senate votes, plus the Vice President as the tie-breaker). They’ve already passed the bill out of the House and appropriate Senate Committees, teeing up a full vote on the budget resolution. This is the first step in passing the Trump Tax Scam and… we can beat them. Again.

Changing The Electoral College

Trump didn’t win the election, he won the Electoral College. Before the next Presidential election, we should do something to fix that, which means we need to take action now.

The Presidential race in America is the only election where the person who gets the most votes on Election Day can end up losing the election. One out of every ten Presidents have been elected despite losing the popular vote. That’s simply undemocratic, so let’s fix it.

The Democrats are no Longer the Party of Change

In 1988 at the Democratic Leadership Conference then Governor Bill Clinton proposed that the Democratic Party abandon its liberalism of the ’60’s and ’70’s and take a hard shift to the right to get in line with perceived middle class values and incidentally garner some of the corporate money pouring into the GOP’s coffers. When Clinton became president that shift occurred. Both Clintons opposed a single payer universal health plan but argued valiantly but unsuccessfully for an Obamacare precursor. Clinton embraced the radical Republican sponsored dismantling of welfare and the deregulation of the finance industry, which played a key roll in the 2007 collapse.

What do Republicans Believe in?

The Republican Party is certainly not the party that it was forty years ago and I am distressed by my impression of what it has become: an unprincipled agent of corporate interests. I’m not just talking about Trump’s rhetorical appeal to the basest sort of populism (if you want to call it that) while overtly advancing the monetary interests of the very wealthy. Rather the party itself has morphed into something that I can’t recognize.

Trump Is What Trump Does

September 29, 2017

Growing up I have often heard the phrase, “Pretty is what pretty does”, pertaining to girls. Despite always wondering what the hidden meanings were, I will take it at its most basic meaning in that good girls do good things, or do them good… Recently I was thinking Trump is what Trump does.

Indivisible | Monday Sept 25th

September 20, 2017

On Monday, Republicans are holding a hearing in the Senate Finance Committee that’s designed to provide a fictional “process” as a fig leaf to win Republican (particularly McCain’s) votes. To call out this sham process and put more pressure on Senators in these final days, we’re asking you to make one more visit on Monday, September 25th. Will you stand in solidarity with other Indivisible groups across the country and host a sit-in at your senator’s district office?
