10-POINT ACTION PLAN
1. THE DAILY CALL: You must call Congress every day. Yes – YOU! 202-225-3121. It will take just TWO MINUTES! Make it part of your daily routine, one of those five things you do every morning without even thinking about it:
- Wake up.
- Brush teeth.
- Walk dog (or stare at cat).
- Make coffee.
- Call Congress.
It is impossible to overstate just how much power you have by making this simple, quick DAILY CALL. The impact cant be overstated . These politicians freak out if they get just 10 calls on an issue. Imagine them getting 10,000! Holy crap – the dome will pop off that building!
NOTE: if you’re saying to yourself, “I don’t need to call because my rep is doing a good job!” ― that is NOT true. They need to hear from you. They need to know they have your support. Don’t believe it? Sen. Elizabeth Warren voted in favor of Ben Carson as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development! I’m sure no one in Massachusetts thought they had to call her. YOU DO! She and the other Dems need to hear from the boss ― YOU! They work for us ― and what boss doesn’t have daily contact with his or her employees?
It’s easy to make The Daily Call. To call your U.S. member of Congress or Senators in D.C., dial 202-225-3121 (or 202-224-3121 if busy). It’s even better to call their direct line. See the sidebar on this page for those numbers.
Here’s some great news: Someone has created an app to make this very easy: Go to the App Store and get “5 Calls.” The app will dial the phone for you and give you talking points for when you speak to your reps!
Here’s what a sample week of your DAILY CALL can look like:
On Monday, call your Congressman/woman and tell them you do not want them to repeal Obamacare. In fact, you want them to improve it so that we have single-payer universal health care like all other “civilized” countries.
On Tuesday, call the first of your two U.S. Senators and tell him to vote NO on Rick Perry for Secretary of Energy. He couldn’t even remember there was a Department of Energy – or what it did!
On Wednesday, call your other U.S. Senator. Demand he do everything in his power to block the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.
On Thursday, call your local State House & State Senator representative in your state capital. Tell him you want the House and Senate to vote for legislation that prohibits guns in schools and colleges
On Friday, call your State Senator. Tell him you want him to support all efforts to reduce those activities which cause climate change.
If you’d rather to write to your reps, you can find their addresses on this page in the sidebar..
Remember ― America is already great. It’s up to us to protect it.
