That’s a pretty bad question for Rep. Granger to ask—they’ve been overspending the budget every year in non-emergency times.
Ken Patterson

it's also a good idea to Like your Rep's Facebook page and follow what they do.

I recommend attending live virtual events (FaceBook Live) and thank official for being advocate or else ask questions about global poverty (Covid-19 Relief).

Today is National Call-In Day. Call Congress and tell them to pass Covid-19 Relief. Go to Resultshttps://results.org/volunteers/action-center/
Leslye Heilig

Link was in email I sent out last week
Leslye Heilig
01:11:43
If you need help finding names to write to, just let me knwo
Pat Payne
01:12:29
Will Congress really read so many media pieces?
Leslye Heilig
01:13:09
Not necessarily but the numbers are significant and meaningful
Jim Hennigan (he/him)
01:18:12
It also catches the attention of the media. Every paper wants Senators writing in to respond to our letters!
Jim Hennigan (he/him)
01:26:01
My Senators note that they've already passed 5 COVID supplemental bills so far and that we're really just talking about a 6th bill. Basically, "When will enough be enough?!"
Leslye Heilig
01:26:53
Enough will be enough when we treat this pandemic appropriately
Tonnie Cummings
01:26:56
I thought this is a second supplemental we
Tonnie Cummings
01:27:17
Oops! Second, not 6th.
Leslye Heilig
01:27:26
It’s actually 3 and 1/2 or four depending how you count
Jim Hennigan (he/him)
01:27:30
Apparently there are some smaller packages that haven't made news. Maybe they're very specific.
Tonnie Cummings
01:27:51
Thanks for that clarification!
Jim Hennigan (he/him)
01:29:05
Yes, thanks Leslye. I'm still confused by their response. And they did say five - by their count. It's a tough sell where I am.
Barbara Boehly
01:32:25
Thank you everyone! Good night!
