Lots happening this week. (Doesn’t it seem like we’ve said that every week this year?) While we want you to make calls about Net Neutrality, we still need to keep an eye on the #GOPTaxScam.
This week, the conference committees (read our conference 101 explainer) will meet and begin to resolve the differences between the House and Senate tax bills. There are enough differences between the two bills that they face real challenges in reaching a compromise that works for enough of their members in both houses. Senators Collins (R-ME) and Flake (R-AZ) both claimed to receive assurances from GOP leadership that their concerns would be addressed before a final vote, if they voted yes on the Senate’s version last week.
This bill is NOT a done deal. Your voice can make a difference in this fight if you keep up the pressure. Here’s what you can do:
- Schedule a visit to your member of Congress’ office. Check our map to see if there’s already an event in your area, or check out our event organizing guide to host one yourself!
- Call your Senators now at 1-855-980-2350. If you have a Republican Senator(s), read our call scripts here to inform your conversation. And if you have a Democratic Senator(s), let them know you’re thankful they voted against the tax scam and you hope they stay strong when the bill comes back from conference.
