Dumbledore’s Army Demands that Congress Defend Working Families

Dumbledore’s Army Demands that Congress Defend Working Families In honor of Harry James Potter’s 38th birthday, the American members of Dumbledore’s Army are demanding that the United States Congress defend the lives and livelihoods of American working families. Ever since gaining office, the Republican Party and President Donald Trump have been obsessed with trying to take a Time Turner to our civil liberties and roll back the clock—but enough is enough. As Albus Dumbledore once said: “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic.” So let’s use our own to share our stories and fight back. And if they don’t listen? Then we’ll respond again, yelling “expelliarmus,” and disarming them of their seats in Congress in November. Health Care. Health care is a leading issue for Muggles and members of the wizarding world alike this election cycle. In the past year and a half, the GOP has tried to sabotage our access to quality, affordable, care at every turn: they tried (and failed) to pass a health care repeal bill, they stripped the individual mandate in the tax bill, they allowed junk insurance plans, and they hiked the cost of care for Americans across the country. Taxes. Last December, Congressional Republicans passed the GOP Tax Scam that overwhelmingly benefits the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations at the expense of working families and small businesses. And every day, the bill becomes less and less popular.The Republicans told us that these tax cuts were supposed to lead to new jobs and better livelihoods for working families. Instead, it has helped enrich the nation’s largest banks, while most workers have seen no increase in wages—and others are watching their wages go down. Supreme Court. These threats are compounded in the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. During his campaign, Trump made it clear that he would choose a nominee who would threaten women’s reproductive rights and who would only act as an extra arm of his administration—and he has kept his promise.   If our lawmakers refuse to defend the people they were elected to represent, then we promise to turn our voices into votes and kick them out of office in November. Signed, Dumbledore’s Army.
