Committees vote today on Tillerson (scheduled for 4 pm) and Pompeo (TBA). Tuesday they vote on Carson, Price, and Sessions at 10 a.m. It’s worth it to make a final call to your senators asking them to oppose these confirmations.

It’s Time To Fight has excellent background pages for some of these confirmation picks and scripts you can use when calling.

☑️ Jeff Sessions (Attorney General)
☑️ Tom Price (Health and Human Services)
☑️ Rex Tillerson (Secretary of State)
☑️ Scott Pruit (EPA)
☑️ Rick Perry (Energy Secretary)
☑️Betsy DeVos (Education)

When you’re calling your reps, it’s entirely up to you whether you want to make these separate calls or combine all your concerns into one. It probably depends on how much time you feel you have to give to phone calling. I have a block of time two mornings a week I can set aside for these phone calls so if I’m pressed for time, a phone call might be a whole laundry list of things, “Oh…and another thing! ”

TOMORROW is a national Day of Action . Show up in person at your senators’s office if at all possible. If it’s not, I totally get it. It’s not possible for me tomorrow but if you’re able to go, hey…I’m with you there in spirit. You can show up and address whatever you want. This would be a particularly good time to share personal stories about what ACA means to you and your family.
