What does “holding them accountable” really even mean? They seem impervious to any threat and drunk with their perceived power.
Lynne Patalano
31:42
That seems so on-point, Jos!
Lynne Patalano
33:29
Are there any pieces of Build Back Better that any Republican Senators desperately want?
Jos Linn, RESULTS (he/him)
34:16
They already split up BBB - that was the infrastructure bill
Leslye Heilig
35:06
That was a terrible mistake they made Jos when they did one without the other
Emma Mehrabi
35:15
Right, Jos. Now its like splitting it up in 3
Michael Santos, RESULTS (he/him/his)
35:25
Sadly, yes, Leslye
Karyne Bury
39:49
Great points Leslye, education on civic engagement is key. Letters from children are powerful
Leslye Heilig
40:20
Thanks Karyne, but Lynn gets that credit🙂
Meredith Dodson, RESULTS (she/her)
40:32
BTW, in part inspired by Lynne, as a parent I offered to come in and have my son's class write letters as part of a writing unit. Those letters were amazing! (2nd graders, to our mayor)
Karyne Bury
40:39
Hah Lynn* sorry
Karyne Bury
40:55

We need to hold our Republican MOCs accountable
Karyne Bury
48:33
So are Rubio and Scott
Betsy Skipp ella

In FL all uplifting ending poverty issues are called socialism
Celeste Johnson she/her
52:44
I am not a results volunteer yet and very interested in Children's Defense Fund - I am an MSW student focusing on advocacy for Anti-Oppression. How can we help, I can gather eager students? Who should I connect with? Thanks in advance!
Jos Linn, RESULTS (he/him)
53:47
Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio have supported CTC expansions in the past
Karyne Bury
54:28
In the past yes, however currently he has been strongly against it due to the lack or work requirements
Karyne Bury
54:49
We have had very difficult meetings with Rubio’s office as well
Betsy Skipp ella
54:55
Any thoughts of the Every Child Deserves Family Act
Meredith Dodson, RESULTS (she/her)
55:27
can see which senators voted for Sen Rubio's amendment to partially expand the CTC for lower-income families here: https://results.org/volunteers/congressional-scorecard/
Karyne Bury
55:30
The “socialism” talking point Betsy mentioned is part of Rubio’s campaign for this election year
Karyne Bury
55:51
Exactly! You said it right Emma
Karyne Bury
56:36
It’s another dog whistle and the electorate doesn’t know what it means, it’s dangerous and sad
Emma Mehrabi
57:25
@Betsy - I would have to ask our child welfare team!
Emma Mehrabi
57:36
I think we endorsed it, but I can't remember off the top of my head
Jos Linn, RESULTS (he/him)
58:30
Willie got 127 LTEs published in 2021
Betsy Skipp ella

An "off" year for Willie. ;-)
Lynne Patalano

Craig Roshaven
01:01:10
We had a meeting with a senior LA to Rep. Kay Granger last year. He told us, much to my surprise, that the child tax credit was one of the things she liked about the American Rescue Plan. She is the ranking member of the house Appropriations committee.
Emma Mehrabi
01:01:29
Wow, that's surprising @Craig
Craig Roshaven
01:03:46
Thanks Emma!
Betsy Skipp ella
01:06:33
Does Emma know how many LTE, media RESULTS have had published
Jos Linn, RESULTS (he/him)
01:07:23
3,440 pieces since 2017
Craig Roshaven
01:07:25
Yup. We need to keep showing up and voicing our concerns and requests.
Michael Santos, RESULTS (he/him/his)
01:08:11
48 out of 50 Dem Senators agreed to change the Senate rules to help the people. That's another way I look at that.
Karyne Bury
