The Senate's vote for the tax scam is a tough loss. You and Indivisibles everywhere did everything right to oppose this bill. Nevertheless, 51 Senate Republicans chose their party and their donors over you - and over the good of the United States.
The House and Senate passed very different versions of the tax bill and will meet next week to reconcile the differences and revote on the new compromise bill. Indivisible.orgtells what's next here. Be sure to thank your Members of Congress (MoC) who opposed this tax scam.
Turn your anger into action on the next big fight for a DREAM Act. Call your senators to tell them to take the Dreamer Pledge: a commitment to stand up for Dreamers and pass a continuing resolution (CR) only if it includes the DREAM Act.
