“Our men and women in uniform, our intelligence and homeland security professionals, and our citizens should feel secure in their knowledge that the critical decisions made by the NSC are free from political considerations. The American people deserve a national security policymaking process that inspires confidence, not cynicism,” said Murphy in a House floor speech.
CALL THIS WOMAN’S OFFICE AND SAY THANK YOU. ENCOURAGE HER TO PUSH HARD FOR THIS BILL. CALL YOUR LOCAL CONGRESSPEOPLE AND ASK THEM TO SPONSOR/SUPPORT IT!
ftr this bill is officially called “Protect The National Security Council From Political Interference Act” (link to official congressional info re: the bill and where it stands)
I called Representative Murphy’s office today and talked with a staffer – I’m not from Florida, and I told them so upfront, and asked how I could support this bill in my home state. The staffer said to definitely call my own state Representative and Senators, both – if we can find a Senator to support the bill, they can introduce it into the Senate and it can be voted on in both houses of Congress at the same time. IF YOU HAVE A DEMOCRATIC SENATOR, PLEASE CALL THEM AND ALERT THEM TO THE EXISTENCE OF THIS MEASURE, AND ASK THEM TO INTRODUCE IT TO THE SENATE.
He also said that calls to Representative Murphy’s office definitely help, in terms of tallying support for the measure in general.
ACTION ITEM: call your senators and ask them to support Rep. Murphy’s bill. Emphasize Bannon’s white supremacist ideology and his intention to destroy the state, and – especially with Republicans – MAKE IT PERSONAL. i have like 6 messages about how nice it feels to say politely, “Please tell the Senator that if she does not stand against Steve Bannon’s poisonous and destructive agenda, my community and I will ensure that someone else wins her seat in the next election. Thank you.” (it really feels so good, guys.)
