Which issues should we be calling, etc., our congress critters about in the next few weeks?

There are so many issues, I'm getting overwhelmed.

Tax Reform (looks like trickle down to me, which increases income inequality)

DACA (they need to stay here and have a clear path to citizenship)

Health Insurance (are they still screwing around with that?)

Budget

Debt Ceiling


I'm sure there is more. Please reply with the very important issues you can think of.

Also, if anyone has a good speech about each issue to give the congress critters when phoned, texted, emailed, tweeted, facebooked, etc., would you please post it.

My brain is about fried.

Thank you!

1. Maintaining the right to VOTE !

So far the Republicans have done everything in their power to win by quashing the right to vote.

Voter ID laws, redistricting, gerrymandering, cross-check, voter intimidation, the list goes on. If they manage to hold on to all three branches of government at this next election, we're screwed. The present hijinks will seem like a cake walk compared to what it will be if they're in power for another 2 years.

2. Maybe the fact that the planet heating up isn't "fake news"?

I mean, the chain of off-the-charts hurricanes coming out of the Atlantic is one symptom.

3. Aid to natural disaster victims.




There are about to be many more.
