Shutdown Day 3 – Monday Admin Post

Good morning, FAMily!

Today is Monday, January 22, 2018. We are we are 9 1/2 months away from midterm elections. Are we ready to mobilize??

This weekend so many of you participated in marches across the state and country, and millions of people joined you worldwide. We’ve seen lots of pictures – what were your takeaways from this weekend – most impactful or favorite moment? Comment below! 😁

As you know, the government shut down this weekend, after failing to come to an agreement on the budget. My favorite quip from this weekend is Senator Tammy Duckworth referring to 45 as “cadet bone spurs.” 😂. As the senate continues to debate, let our senators know what is important to you – use your voice. We want to see a clean Dream act with clear paths to legal immigration. We want to see our CHIP reauthorized. CHIP actually ends up saving the government money…so WHY we are arguing about this is unconscionable.

Hey, by the way, do you know McConnell, Graham, and Paul actually voted NO on keeping the government open on Friday? And yet, somehow it’s the Dems fault….🙄
