Letters to My Representatives 1-25-2018

Here are today’s letters. I was so busy yesterday I just didn’t have the opportunity to write them, so they’re a day late. I do have some plans for writing related posts in the near future just as soon as I can get the revision of my WIP to a spot where I can tolerate letting anyone else see it!

Don’t forget to visit It’s Time to Fight for information on what to call your representatives about!

Dear Senator Stabenow,

Please do not support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Act. There is no conclusive evidence that a 20 week old fetus can feel pain and therefore the “scientific” basis of this bill is unfounded. If the Republicans would like to fund more research on whether a fetus can feel pain I would support that. But until then I do not support the GOP attempt to ban abortions past 20 weeks.

Thank you for working to gain an extension for CHIP funding and please work to make sure that it doesn’t just run out again in 6 years creating this crisis all over again.

I ask that you work diligently to get a clean DREAM Act passed. It is imperative that those people brought here as children have a path to citizenship.

Thank you for voting NO for Alex Azar’s appointment to the HHS.

I am opposed to Trump’s proposal to place a work requirement on Medicaid benefits. Please do not support this policy suggestion.

I oppose Sec. Zinke’s move to open up our coast lines to more offshore oil drilling. Please do not support this policy.

I am opposed to the Trump tariff that would affect the solar industry. He is intentionally cutting jobs in an industry just because he doesn’t like them. I believe this is because he dislikes President Obama so much he wants to undo everything he stood for. Please stand against this move that will cost American jobs and will set the solar industry back. We need clean, renewable energy and hampering that industry while negatively affect the environment and the economy.

Please support the SECURE Act. We need to protect Salvadorians and Haitians and others who come to this country seeking security from threats in their countries of origin.

Please vote NO on Jim Bridenstein’s nomination to head NASA.

Please do what you can to protect Net Neutrality and convince your colleagues to support this much needed protection for the internet and its users.

Please support funding for community health centers and do all in your power to make sure these much need services are given the funding to continue to serve the most vulnerable of our society.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Austin

I oppose the removal of Net Neutrality. I know you support it and I will be sure to remind your constituents of that and what it can mean for them in 2018.

Please support funding for community health centers and do all in your power to make sure these much need services are given the funding to continue to serve the most vulnerable of our society.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,
