Nightly Actions for Monday, March 20th, 2017

URGENT - Neil Gorsuch

Today, hearings began for Neil Gorsuch's confirmation to the Supreme Court. Gorsuch has a record of opposing reproductive rights and putting corporations before people. His seat should have gone to President Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland, but Republicans in Congress refused to even consider him. Here's how you can help block Gorsuch.
45's Budget

Last week, we learned about 45's anti-immigrant, anti-science, anti-education budget, which proposes to cut funding from public broadcasting, the EPA and other science agencies, and even Meals on Wheels, while pouring funds into the military and attacks on immigrants. Here's how you can help stop 45's budget (by category).

Healthcare - Affordable Care Act

House leaders plan to vote on the Republican plan to repeal and "replace" the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which I'm calling "Don't Care," on Thursday. The Congressional Budget Office recently found that this new "plan" would cause 24 million Americans to lose their health insurance. As many as 27 Republican representatives have either stated that they will vote against the plan or that they have concerns about it. We need 22 to block it. Here's how you can help stop Don't Care and protect the ACA:

45's proposed budget includes building his ridiculous border wall, funding for more ICE raids and deportations, and beefing up border patrol. His second attempt at a Muslim ban was struck down by two federal judges, but the Justice Department said they plan to appeal one of the rulings. Here's how you can help stop 45's anti-immigrant agenda.
45's Ties to Russia

Today, FBI Director James Comey confirmed that the FBI is investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, including possible links between 45 and Moscow. He also said that U.S. intelligence agencies agree that Russia's aim evolved into an effort during the election to aid 45 over Hillary Clinton. Here's how you can help keep up the pressure to ensure that a thorough investigation is completed.
The Environment

With a climate-denier running the EPA and 45's budget planning to slash funding, it's clear that our environment is under attack. Here are some ways you can help protect it.
