Tea Party

Representative’s Judgment Day

Your DGB for today is to start tracking how your representatives vote using the Countable app and join the Resistance.

We had a Grab a few of weeks ago asking you to take a crash course in proper Tea Party Etiquette. Your marching orders included showing up and holding your elected representatives accountable for how they voted. Ready? Got your ass-kicking, Sarah Connor from Terminator outfit all laid out? Awesome. Now we’re providing the ammunition. Countable is available for iOS and Android.

It provides updates on key legislative developments on topics that interest you by subject, region, and politician. Our favorite feature is the same-day notifications on how your representatives vote on each measure or bill.

Keep track of your legislatures and fight for your future by joining the Resistance. Let them know you’re always checking in and you’ll “be back.”

 

Make Your Rep Really Hear You

Your DGB for today is to watch Representative Steve Israel’s video on how to really put the heat on your Congressional representatives.

We had a Grab about two weeks ago asking you to take a crash course in proper Tea Party Etiquette and now we’re encouraging you to brush up on your skills again. Do like the Tea Party did in 2010, and make Congress’s public appearances VERY uncomfortable if their votes don’t reflect your values. Who doesn’t love a good ol’ uncomfortable Q and A session? I am sure we’ve all become quite accustomed to them over those long holiday dinners.

As you watch the video, don’t let Steve’s take on calls, letters, and emails get you down. As we’ve seen in recent weeks, an avalanche of contacts DOES work. So keep it up, but add public meetings to your arsenal, if you’re feeling brave.

Follow your local representatives on social media to watch for opportunities to deliver some “tea” and remember, DGB likes to serve it piping hot.
