Tell Your Rep that You See Their YES Vote for Devastating Cuts to the Budget
From the minute they took control of the House less than a year ago, ex-Speaker Kevin McCarthy and his MAGA leadership have shown a complete inability to handle even the basic functions of government: keeping it open, passing a budget, even maintaining the line of succession by having a Speaker of the House.
But Kevin didn’t do it alone. Every step of the way, House Republicans have been there, enabling the behavior of the most extreme members of their party. Whether it’s voting for nationwide abortion restrictions, allowing confessed fraudster and current criminal defendant George Santos to defile our Congress, or supporting massive cuts to our public programs; if you live in a Republican district, then your Representative helped get us into this mess.
Right now, all eyes are on the fight for Speaker. But it’s important that one thing not get lost in all the chaos: last week, House Republicans voted YES on a budget proposal that would have devastated our country. It included a ban on sending mifepristone through the mail (which means no telehealth reproductive care or sending pills to anti-abortion states) and across-the-board 30% cuts that would have decimated our entire public support structure, law enforcement, and more.
We need you to call your Republican Representative and tell them: you saw them support one of the most extreme budget proposals ever put forward, one that would have impacted hundreds of millions of Americans, and you’re horrified. Tell them you expect them to stop playing games, elect a non-MAGA Speaker, and honor our budget deal.

Stop the Chaos, Get Back to Work, and Honor Our Budget Deal
Hello, I’m a constituent from [part of state], and I’m calling to tell [Representative] that I’m angry about the chaos that they’re bringing to our House of Representatives.
Not only have you left Congress unable to function, but last week you supported an incredibly offensive budget proposal that would have devastated our public programs and hurt our district. It was a fake proposal with NO chance of passage, but you still voted for it instead of keeping your word and honoring the bipartisan budget deal that was already worked out earlier this year. Instead of supporting us, you chose to stand with Marjorie Taylor Greene and the MAGA extremists in your party.
Tell [Representative] that I’m offended by their conduct and votes over the past few weeks. We’re already speeding towards another budget shutdown - I expect you to vote for a Speaker who won’t enable extremists, and once a Speaker is elected you need to pass funding at the levels you agreed to without delay.
Your call to hold House Republicans accountable for their harmful conduct makes all the difference! Tell all your friends to call as well – they need to hear from us!
