Keep Dems in Line

This week, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer showed a disappointing lack of spine when he agreed to fast-track votes on 15 of Trump’s judicial nominees and 5 executive appointees. He claims that most of these judges were non-controversial and would have been confirmed whether Democrats stayed to fight or not. Still, he got nothing in return for the fast-tracking deal, and the result is 15 more Trump judges in power for decades to come.  

Keeping Democratic leaders awake and fighting is one thing that we here in Seattle can really contribute to – let’s call our Senators to let them know that we are paying attention and we want them to fight at every turn, using every tool in their arsenal.

Action: Demand that Democrat Senators Fight

Remember to log your calls here: https://goo.gl/forms/lbHUvI9h58f0dLqx1

Sen. Patty Murray: (202) 224-2621, (206) 553-5545
Sen. Maria Cantwell: (202) 224-3441, (206) 220-6400

Script:
“Hi, my name is [NAME] and I am calling from [ZIP] to express my displeasure at Sen. Chuck Schumer’s choice to fast-track 15 of Trump’s judicial nominations this week. I want the leaders of the Democratic party to fight for us at every turn – even though we are in the minority, there are plenty of tools available for [Senator Murray/Cantwell] and the rest of the Democratic Senators to halt, postpone, or otherwise make it difficult for Republicans to pass harmful legislation or appoint dangerous people. Any agreement where Democrats get nothing in return is a fight that Democrats lost. I would like [Sen Murray/Cantwell] and Sen. Schumer to resist deals such as this in the future, and stand strong for us at every turn. Thank you.”
