Legislative Calls Week 5.21


1. Call both of your US Senators and your Representative and strongly encourage them to put our country before their party and support a thorough and complete investigation into any Russian influence on our elections and the Trump campaign.

2. Call Senator Thom Tillis and say that you’re glad he’s doing better after his health emergency this past week. Ask him to consider how many otherwise healthy people also face unexpected health problems and how devastating those crises become without adequate health insurance. Tell Senator Tillis to vote only for healthcare bills that expand access to healthcare at affordable prices.  Tell him to vote against any healthcare bill that includes tax reductions for upper income earners.

North Carolina — perhaps more than any other state in the Union — has been transformed by the new and growing tidal wave of political spending. Zach Galifianakis, the comic star of “The Hangover” movies, travels back to his home state to investigate how North Carolina has become a bellwether for how the money of a few has come to dominate our democracy. Galifianakis investigates allegations that the current state government was put in power by moneyed interests and has thus carried out a program that only benefits its backers: cuts to education, healthcare spending and environmental protection; lowering of taxes for the wealthy and corporations; and the passage of laws designed to roll back access to the ballot.

Please join us on June 5 (no need to RSVP).
