FEDERAL ACTION ALERT – October 16, 2023

Produced by Democrats of the Red Rocks and Coconino County Democratic Party

  1. Demand Senator Mitch McConnell DO SOMETHING to stop Senator Tuberville’s tantrum over DOD (Department of Defense) policy covering travel expenses for service members seeking abortions!  Senator Tuberville, Alabama, has blocked over 300 military promotions so far.  Our military will continue to operate but this single Senator’s tantrum is costing servicemembers and their families.  People are taking on work they are not compensated for, it will impact their retirement benefits, and its created financial and logistical burdens for troops’ families.  Senator McConnell can threaten to remove Tuberville from Senate committees, he can push big donors to cut off donations, he can work with Democrats to get rid of this terrible rule in the Senate that allows a single Senator to hold up the whole body!!  Senator Tuberville has stalled all high-level military promotions since February to protest the Pentagon’s new reproductive health policies.  Tuberville is playing games with our national security and the well-being of our troops.  Demand Senator McConnell DO SOMETHING to halt Tuberville’s destruction of our Armed Services ASAP!!
  1. Summit your comments to the ATF in support of a potential regulation that would close the loophole to expand background checks on sales of guns on line and at gun shows!!!  The regulation would expand background checks to guns offered for sale online or at gun shows, keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous people, and ultimately save lives.  It’s common sense and closes loopholes that people have used to sell guns without background checks for decades.  Go to Everytown.Org to submit your comments to the ATF in support of this regulation.  Here’s a link:  https://www.everytown.org/
  1. Urge President Biden to exercise his authority and fire Louis Dejoy as Postmaster General!  Dejoy was appointed Postmaster General by Trumb in 2018.  He has continued to privatize the postal service, cut postal worker staffing by 30 million hours just this year, dramatically reduced wages for two thirds of rural mail carriers, mail prices have gone up and delivery has slowed down!!  President Biden can appoint two new people to the Postal Board of Governors who are committed to a strong USPS, worker safety, effective mail delivery.  These new appointees can work with the rest of the Board to fire Dejoy ASAP!!  Ask President Biden to act to get rid of Louis Dejoy ASAP!!
