We must send a clear message to members of Congress -- pass a clean spending bill without harmful corporate or special interest giveaways.
Here's an idea of what to say:
Hi, my name is ____ and I’m calling from (City, State). I’d like to leave a message for my member of Congress.
I’m calling to express my concern about the hundreds of harmful poison pill policy riders that are attached to the spending bill. I am especially concerned about efforts to use the spending bill to weaken laws that protect the integrity of our democracy -- like blocking enforcement of the Johnson Amendment and loosening campaign finance laws.
Please keep these inappropriate poison pill riders out of the appropriations bills, and pass a budget that protects our families and communities. Thank you.
