Today was spent gearing up for the Congressional Recess this week. Your Members of Congress all flew back home on Friday, and are spending the week doing town halls, local events, etc. Which means we have the chance to be right in their face, for an entire week. Remember how swamped they were before DeVos? They were still in Washington. This is the week to really make them feel the pressure.
Here is a useful map to see what’s being organized locally during the #ReclaimRecess week: https://goo.gl/vXtYgl
Pictured above are all of the events planned so far, and more are being added everyday.
There are local organizations holding rallies, groups organizing for town halls, and a lot more. So definitely check it out, and hold your Reps accountable.
…Almost nothing happened today. How amazing is that? POTUS spoke in Florida yesterday, where he got the crowd all jazzed up for 45 minutes, talking about basically the same things he did during the campaign. Oh, this is your reminder that he has already filed for reelection, and that they are taking campaign contributions as we speak (that sorry excuse for a media bias survey? That’s to raise donations for his campaign).
Other than that, McCain sort of stuck it to POTUS yesterday, criticizing his labeling of the press as “the enemy of the American People!” This isn’t really a celebration of his criticism as much as a “where the hell have you been” kind of situation. But, at this point, I’ll take what I can get.
