Weekly Calls to Action

1. BLOCK THE DEREGULATION OF GUN SILENCERS

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling today to urge Rep. Jodey C. Arrington to vote against HR 3668, the SHARE Act. The deregulation of gun silencers is dangerous to public safety and security. We must not roll back sensible gun laws that provide a safer community for all.
Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.

2. OPPOSE OVERRIDING STATE RESTRICTIONS ON CONCEALED CARRY

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to express my opposition to [H.R.38 for House/S.446 for Senate]. This bill would invalidate state-level concealed carry restrictions, make it difficult for law enforcement to verify whether a weapon is legally carried, and essentially allow permitless carry across the country.
Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.

3. OPPOSE A FEDERAL 20-WEEK ABORTION BAN – PASSED HOUSE

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to express my serious opposition to H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This federal 20-week abortion ban is not only unconstitutional but also jeopardizes women’s health and physicians’ ability to care for their patients. I demand Rep. Jodey C. Arrington vote against this disgraceful bill.
Thank you for your time and attention.

4. REPUBLICAN CALL SCRIPT TO STOP THE TRUMP TAX SCAM

Caller: Hello! My name is [___] and I’m calling from [part of state]. I’m calling to let [Congressman / Senator __] know that I do not support any tax plan that has tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations. I want him/her to oppose any bill that cuts taxes for the rich and lets corporations off the hook for paying their fair share.

Staffer: The [Congressman / Senator] thinks now is the time for tax reform so that we can unleash new economic growth. Our tax code is broken and it’s holding us back.

Caller: I agree with you that the tax code isn’t perfect. But what Donald Trump and the Republicans have proposed is not tax reform: it’s tax cuts for the wealthiest individuals and corporations. Things like repealing the estate tax and the net investment tax only help the super rich.

Staffer: The plan isn’t finalized yet, it’s still being drafted so we don’t know yet exactly what will be included. But the [Congressman / Senator] thinks we need tax reform to jumpstart the economy. Right now, we have the highest corporate tax rate in the whole world!

Caller: That’s not exactly true. The amount corporations actually pay is much lower than what they’re supposed to pay. Their effective tax rate, according to the Government Accountability Office, is only 14%. That rate is in line with or lower than the rest of the world, and there’s no evidence that the tax rate hurts U.S. competitiveness. I want [Congressman / Senator __] to hold corporations accountable for paying their fair share, not let them off the hook.

Staffer: Well the [Congressman / Senator] thinks we need to close the special interest loopholes and make our tax code simpler. Our tax code is 2,600 pages long and most Americans need help just to file a simple tax return. If we pass tax reform, filing taxes could be as easy as filling out a postcard.

Caller: I agree that there are too many loopholes in the tax code that the wealthy and corporations exploit to get away with paying less than their fair share. But the postcard idea doesn’t work, and if by simplifying the tax code you mean consolidating brackets, then I’m opposed to that. That is an idea that only benefits the rich.
