Dear Co-defendants –



Today’s NYT has a strong editorial condemning the taxscam and its huge transfer of wealth to the already wealthy. They have urged their readers to call all the senators we have been working on plus Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma. Let’s follow their advice and make the phone calls below!



The highest priority calls now and in the future are aimed at defeating taxscam. Start off with calling Schumer, asking him to hold the Democratic coalition together. Call the other two senators, asking them to not break ranks on the taxscam. They have all been a bit wobbly. Use the deficit, elimination of SALT and corporate give away as reason to stay the course!

Senator Charles Schumer(NY) – 202-224-6542

Senator Joe Manchin(WV) 202-224-3954

Senator Heidi Heitkamp(ND) – 202-224-2043

The taxscam promises to increase the deficit and the national debt by $150 billion dollars a year for the next ten years. Budget hawks should be encouraged to oppose this huge increase in debt. These three senators need to be reminded what the taxscam would do to the budget and the deficit. They are previously, on the record, as openly opposed to increasing deficits.

Senator Jeff Flake (AZ) – 202-224-4521

Senator Bob Corker(TN) – 202-224-3344

Senator John McCain (AZ) – 202-224-2235

The Senate version of taxscam calls for elimination of the mandate for ACA participation. Tell these senators that you and they are concerned with driving the needy out of medical care through ACA’s increased rates if the mandate is removed.

Senator Jerry Moran (KS) – 202-224-6521

Senator Susan Collins (ME) – 202-224-2523

Senator James Lankford (OK)  — 202-224-5754

Lisa Murkowski is an independent sort of character and she is not afraid of opposing the big powers in the establishment in Washington. She has indicated that she is not offended by the elimination of the mandate.  But she does have an eye out for her constituents, many of whom depend on Medicaid for health care. Tell her that the $1.5T deficit will assure the minimization of health care in coming years.

Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK) – 202-224–2665

No surrender!

L’audace, encore l’audace, et toujours l’audace!

Thank you.

John Fox
