1. Since I can't source coal

I am going to get some firm foam (like for school projects) and paint it with black paint.

Wrap it, and sent it with a note saying why:

You obstructed BBB, you care more about coal than the US middle class, and the imitation coal is because ‘you are an imitation Democrat”.

Upside is also that the foam is light so our postal carriers aren’t lugging around heavy packages while we are trying to make a point.

But, thanks for this idea!!!

I very much want the bill to pass but do you think that he'll ever see even one of mailings?
A low level staffer deal with them.

Do you think a symbolic gesture will affect him more than Sen Schumer or Pres Biden meeting with him?

Better to spend your time, energy, and money getting local Ds elected who share your values and priorities.

All mail to Congress is routed to, opened, and tested at an off-site location.
