CALL OF THE DAY- TELL CONGRESS TO SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT

Sunday, Nov 17- Statewide Impeachment Rally – 3:00 – 6:00 pm, Louisiana State Capitol. We will join other Louisiana Indivisible chapters to tell our Congressional delegation we support Impeachment! 

Call Congress today! 

  • Rep. Scalise: (202) 225-3015
  • Rep. Richmond: (202) 225-6636
  • Rep. Graves: (202) 225-3901

Script: I support impeachment because elected officials asking foreign governments for investigations of American citizens to help their reelection campaigns (while withholding taxpayer funded aid to that country or while talking about trade) is a gross ABUSE OF POWER and undermines our NATIONAL SECURITY. I also believe subpoenas MUST BE OBEYED and the Trump Administration must obey all subpoenas for information or testimony. 

Special addition for Senator Cassidy: One of our members received a form email response to an email she sent regarding impeachment. Cassidy’s response included, “With that being said, Democrats have called for impeachment since President Trump won the election. The Mueller investigation went nowhere, so they’re trying something new. In the meantime, I hope they focus on passing legislation that will raise military pay, stop surprise medical billing, and other issues important to the well-being of Americans.” 

The House of Representatives has passed MANY bills addressing issues important to the well-being of Americans. Ask Senator Cassidy’s staff what is the status of these bills passed by the House (hint: the bills are stuck in the Senate because of Mitch McConnell): 

  • HR 1- Protect voting rights and against foreign election interference
  • HR 7- Paycheck Fairness Act 
  • HR 8- Background Checks on Firearm Purchases
  • HR 987- Lower Prescription Drug Cost Act
  • HR 1585- Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act 

Show Cassidy’s staff you are paying attention and know Cassidy’s response is disingenuous.
