Next Step: Call Your Members of Congress
Tell Your Members of Congress to Oppose Blatant Giveaways to Billionaires and Big Business in the Budget
Here’s what to do:
1. Call 1-888-291-9824 to be connected to the Capitol switchboard.
2. Ask for your representative or one of your senators. It’s best to call all three. (Not sure who your members of Congress are? To check, follow this link.)
3. When a staff member answers the phone, feel free to use this script:
Please introduce or support amendments to remove the following budget riders:
- The rider that prevents the SEC from requiring corporations to disclose their political spending,
- The rider that eliminates country-of-origin labels for pork and beef,
- The rider that repeals the limit on exporting crude oil produced in America,
- And the rider that blocks the IRS from modernizing its rules to prevent political groups from exploiting nonprofit status.
4. Leave a comment below to let us know how your call went. This will help us prioritize which members of Congress are in need of extra grassroots pressure.
