Support the filibuster

Today’s Downsizer-Dispatch…

Action Item

Six Senators (3 Democrats and 3 Republicans) are willing to filibuster in the Senate when they start considering the Patriot Act extension on Wednesday. Please support them by letting your Senators know that you strongly oppose the Patriot Act extension. To send your message click here.

But don’t stop there. We’re at the last hour, and the need is urgent. Please call – especially if you’ve already sent a message. The phone numbers for your Senators are located on the campaign page, once you’re logged in.

Keep the call simple. Say you want to leave a message for the Senator. Leave your name, city, and a simple statement. You can say, “I want the Senator to vote against cloture, support the filibuster and oppose any Patriot Act reauthorization bill.”

Then, when you’re done, tell us how the call went at our blog. Go to this link and leave a comment.

News reached two major milestones over the weekend. Check out our blog to learn what they are.

Thank you for being a DC Downsizer.
