Letters to My Representatives 1-3-2018

So these are my first letters of the New Year! And my first since November. The Holidays were a hectic time and I needed a break from Resistance work. Please know for yourself that we all need a break sometimes and it’s okay! Allow yourself the rest and recuperation you need to keep fighting!

Letters a short today, partly because I’ve been a little out of the political loop for the last 6 weeks and also because the site I rely on for scripts and information is not fully up to date. Even Jess needs a break from politics! Still, It’s Time to Fight has information that can help you write letters and make phone calls, so please be sure to visit. I’m sure Jess will get to updating it further soon.

Here are my letters for the week:

Dear Senator Stabenow,

Thank you for fighting for Michigan, and for the rest of the country. We need people like you to protect us against not only the Republicans decisions and agendas, but from the monstrosity that is the Trump Administration.

I am disgusted by the passing of the GOP Tax Scam. I know you fought against it, so thank you, but please do what you can to inform voters about why this bill is awful and to use legislation to protect us from it as much as you can.

I stand strongly against the Trump Administrations banned words in the CDC reports concerning the budget and ask that you take a strong stance against such absurd censorship.

I demand that the CHIP program be funded. Please do all you can to make this happen.

Please do all you can to promote a clean DREAM Act. We need to ensure that Dreamers are secure in this country with no fear of deportation.

Please support additional funding for Puerto Rico, including Medicaid funding. They are Americans and deserve the same support that any mainland disaster would have received.

I oppose hikes on National Park fees. I personally can afford such hikes, but it is already difficult for those with less financial security than I to ask our National Parks. It is completely inappropriate to reduce their access to them further.

I oppose the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 passed by the House. Please do not support this bill.

Last, and possibly most importantly, I am appalled and disgusted by Trump’s actions regarding his Twitter feud with Kim Jung Un and his blatant disregard for protocol, decency, or any common sense in discussing and threatening nuclear war against North Korea. Please continue to stand in opposition to this clearly unfit person to serve as president and pressure your Republican colleagues to stand against him. He is dangerous to the United States as well as the rest of the world and it is well past time that our elected officials do something about removing him from office.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Jenifer Austin

 

Dear Representative Moolenaar,

I see while I have been on a Winter Break you have continued to wreak havoc on the American people. So let’s see, now I have to inform your voters come November that you supported repealing the ACA, supported the GOP Tax Scam that will be detrimental to Americans, and also that you support making it easier for armed gunmen to kill people in this country. Good to know.

I stand strongly against the Trump Administration’s banned words in the CDC reports concerning the budget and ask that you take a strong stance against such absurd censorship.

I demand that the CHIP program be funded. Please do all you can to make this happen.

Please do all you can to promote a clean DREAM Act. We need to ensure that Dreamers are secure in this country with no fear of deportation.

Please support additional funding for Puerto Rico, including Medicaid funding. They are Americans and deserve the same support that any mainland disaster would have received.

I oppose hikes on National Park fees. I personally can afford such hikes, but it is already difficult for those with less financial security than I to ask our National Parks. It is completely inappropriate to reduce their access to them further.

Last, and possibly most importantly, I am appalled and disgusted by Trump’s actions regarding his Twitter feud with Kim Jung Un and his blatant disregard for protocol, decency, or any common sense in discussing and threatening nuclear war against North Korea. Please continue to stand in opposition to this clearly unfit person to serve as president and pressure your Republican colleagues to stand against him. He is dangerous to the United States as well as the rest of the world and it is well past time that our elected officials do something about removing him from office. How can you continue to support this man and not demand his immediate removal? Your devotion to party at the cost of Americans, democracy and this country is noted. History will not remember you or your colleagues kindly.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Jenifer Austin
