Doug Jones’ upset victory in Alabama last night is another strike against the massively unpopular Republican tax scam.
Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump are desperate for a win and we can expect increased urgency from Republicans to pass their monstrous tax scam before Jones is seated and their razor thin majority in the Senate becomes even more tenuous.
But Alabama voters rejected the Republican platform when they sent Roy Moore packing. The Senate should stop all work on the tax scam until Doug Jones, the nation's newest U.S. Senator, is seated and able to vote on legislation that will impact his constituents. This legislation is too big to be decided by someone appointed to the seat by a governor under investigation.
Call Senator Jeff Merkley at (202) 224-3753 and Senator Ron Wyden at (202) 224-5244. Tell them to stop all work on the Republican tax bill until Senator-elect Doug Jones is seated. Here is a script to help with the call:
Hello, my name is __________. I live in zip code 97520. I am calling to urge the senator to stop all work on the tax plan until Doug Jones is seated. This bill is too important to rush and Alabama voters deserve to have their voices heard.
