(the 202 number below is consistently busy but (800) 253-3931, option 5, worked for me.)

161121

  • flood Jason Chaffetz, House Oversight Committee chair (202)-225-7751, (801)-851-2500. Demand an investigation of Trump's potential conflicts of interest. now that he's taking a break from inspecting Hillary's thumb drives
  • apparently "it's been slow" on John Duncan's (HOC) line, (202) 225-5435; we can change that
  • call your representatives and tell them to oppose HR-4612, designed to hamstring Obama's last-minute efforts
  • help protesters at Standing Rock not die of hypothermia
  • help Roy Cooper win in North Carolina
  • sign up for weekly calls to action

161119-20

  • UPDATE: Paul Ryan's ACA survey is working again. (202) 225-0600. Support the affordable care act, for the price of listening to a nonsense recording for a few minutes. 
  • let's work our way down this list, making calls demanding review of Trump's finances and conflicts of interest. it'll take awhile, but what if the whole HOC comes back from break with voicemails full of our voices?

  • a big one, from friends:
    Please call the House Oversight Committee and support the call for a bipartisan review of Trump's financials and conflicts of interest. It only takes a few minutes (202) 225-5074. Firsthand testimony from someone who did: "The woman on the phone said that they are absolutely tallying calls - the more they get, the more likely the Committee is to demand ALL of Trump’s financial information. She said that there’s not much time left, as they are out of the office next week for Thanksgiving. And after that, they’re going to make a decision.
  • from friends' Facebook posts: "CALL TO ACTION: If you have a phone, and you like it when people have medical insurance:
    Paul Ryan is conducting a phone poll on the ACA (Obamacare), hoping to hear overwhelming popular opposition to it. If you would like to express your support for the Affordable Care Act, call (202) 225-3031. Press 2 to weigh in on the issue. You'll hear a brief recording about HR-3762, Paul Ryan's heroic proposal to gut the ACA, and President Obama's villainous use of his veto power to stop it. Then, you will have a chance to indicate your opinion with the press of a button. Press 1 if you support Obamacare, 2 if you oppose it.
    You can stay on the line after this to leave a voicemail, but it's been consistently full for me. Feel free to vent if you happen upon the chance."
