Flip the House: Maine

7-27FlipTheHouseMaine.jpg

Your DGB for this weekend is to elect a Maine democrat to the House of Representatives.

Maine has one seat up for reelection this year and it currently belongs to Bruce Poliquin, a comparatively moderate Republican who is trying to ride out the Trump presidency without making too many waves. That’s not good enough for the country and crappy for Maine.

Donate or volunteer for Democrat and current Maine State Representative Jared Golden and flip this seat blue.

Come On, Collins

Your DGB for today is to contact Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) and encourage her to vote against the GOP Tax Scam.

For awhile there, it looked like Tax Reform was a gimmie for Trump, with plenty of amoral lawmakers willing to sacrifice the middle and lower class to the Corporate Gods of America. Then, Doug Jones was elected and some senators are now piecing together their spines and having second thoughts about being on this train. As of this Grab, Corker is threatening to vote against the hastily-prepared bill, and suddenly getting this signed into law before Christmas doesn’t look great for the GOP. Rubio was a no, but sold his soul for 300 dollars and seems to have lost the directions for putting his spine back together again.

But, we need insurance and Susan Collins has come through for us in the past. Despite believing a bunch of empty promises made to her for the people of Maine, DGB has faith that she will see the light. This weekend, you’ll let her know how important this is using this contact page, or Resistbot if you live in Maine.
