Send President Trump a special Christmas gift of confirmed nominees!

The reconciliation process on the tax reform bills has produced a final tax bill that includes many of the provisions we have supported over the past few months. We have included a short summary of the final bill’s highlights below.

Now that we are so close to seeing meaningful tax reform passed, please take the following actions early this week:

First, please call your two U.S. senators and relay the following three messages:

  1. Urge them to support an up-or-down vote on President Trump’s nominees. By this point in the administrations of Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George H.W. Bush administrations, the Senate had confirmed almost two-thirds of their nominees. This Senate, however, hasn’t confirmed even half of President Trump’s qualified nominees. Senate Democrats have been abusing the Senate’s antiquated rules to delay President Trump’s nominations. We have provided a list of qualified nominees. Ask your senators to stop this abuse and make sure the following these nominees receive a vote.
    NOTE: One of the best ways to stop the deep state is to confirm the President’s nominees. If you are an activist concerned with the deep state and only take one action this week, please call your representatives to urge them to confirm President Trump’s nominees.
  2. Support the final tax bill. Below are talking points to help guide your phone calls with congressional staff members.
  3. Share your thoughts about the upcoming spending bill. At Tea Party Patriots, we have consistently stressed the long-term importance of spending reductions. Make sure your two U.S. Senators understand how important spending cuts and spending restraint are to our nation’s overall economic health.

Second, call your U.S. representative and relay the following two messages:

  1. Support the final tax bill. Below are talking points to help guide your phone calls with congressional staff members.
  2. Share your thoughts about the upcoming spending bill. At Tea Party Patriots, we have consistently stressed the long-term importance of spending reductions. Make sure your representative in Congress understands how important spending cuts and spending restraint are to our nation’s overall economic health.

It looks like we do not have your address in our system, and therefore, cannot locate the members of Congress that represent your state and district. Please Update Your Profile to have this key information provided in the future. In the meantime, visit our Find Your Members of Congress area to locate this contact information, or call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 to be transferred to each office. (NOTE: You will need to call the Capitol Switchboard each time to be transferred.)

Thank you for everything you have done to help us get tax reform passed in both chambers of Congress. We should all be very proud of this accomplishment.

In liberty,
