The ever increasing importance of defending our Federal Judiciary was underscored today as well, as unqualified, ideologically motivated life time appointments to the Federal Bench are being made at a record pace. We must call on Senators to do their jobs to assure that appointments are based on qualifications and a record of fair jurisprudence--not conservative ideology! The horrific Trump TAX Scam has passed both the House and the Senate, and now is in conference committee. Because of the haste with with Republican Senators pushed their version to a vote, the conference committee has a bigger job than would otherwise be the case -- So, we still have a shot at stopping this train wreck by continuing to hammer on Republican Senators for raising the deficit, and focusing on your own, and vulnerable Republican Representatives...especially in California and New York. Let them know they work for us, not the Oligarchs! But time is short--we must pull out all the stops. TAKE ACTION ON THE TAX BILL NOW: CLICK HERE. Reminders we given to everyone to not let down our guard on Net Neutrality...More on that later!
On Monday, Lancaster Stands Up hosted a rally in front of Senator Bob Casey's Harrisburg office, while Lancaster Dreamers met with his legislative director. Dreamers and allies are calling for a Clean DACA bill that is not tied to a border wall, provides access to education and driver licenses, and does not rely on any quid pro quo, such as enhanced border security or a border wall.
