Rep. Tim Walberg Tells His Town Hall to "Get a Life"

Republican Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-7) gave his colleagues a lesson in what not to say at a town hall this week.

After being pressured to comment on Trump's twitter activity, Walberg cracked under the pressure and told his constituents to "get a life."

This Week’s Indivisible Actions: September 11-17

From Indivisible's Indivisiblog

Your weekly Indivisible to-dos:

  1. Defend DACA recipients. Tell your members of Congress (MoCs) that you want the Dream Act attached to every must-pass bill in Congress using our new script and state-specific explainer. You can also check out our comprehensive resource on how to stand up for Dreamers and all immigrants—in partnership with United We Dream and the National Immigration Law Center—at standup.indivisibleguide.com. Help us spread the word.
  2. Oppose H.R. 3697. The House is expected to vote this Tuesday on a bill that criminalizes immigrants, including those fleeing gang violence, and allows more of them to be detained and deported. It also affects vulnerable populations such as asylum seekers, TPS holders, and unaccompanied children. Tell your MoCs to vote no on H.R. 3697, the Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act.
  3. Oppose the Budget Resolution. Your House member should oppose the budget resolution expected on the House floor in two weeks, and your Senator should oppose any resolution that makes cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, or SNAP, and doesn't offset tax cuts with new revenue or closing loopholes. Hold them accountable using our new explainer and script.
  4. TrumpCare could be back this week… keep it dead. Keep an eye out for the return of TrumpCare by another name: "Graham-Cassidy." Under Senate rules, Republicans have until September 30 to make TrumpCare happen. Let's make sure it doesn't make a comeback—check out our new explainer.
  5. Prevent war with North Korea. Urge your MoC to speak out against Trump's warmongering with our explainer.
  6. Join #NoMuslimBanEver. We're proud partners of the #NoMuslimBanEver campaign. Head over to their new website at www.nomuslimbanever.com and join the campaign!
  7. Help us make Indivisible Regional Institutes a reality. We want to hold gatherings of Indivisibles throughout the country, to give core organizing trainings, improve connections and collaboration among groups, and deepen our sense of shared purpose as part of this movement. Help us fund this initiative—and help us unlock double the funds from a grant that will match your donation—so we can bring more people to more Institutes.
  8. Join Indivisible Policy Director Angel Padilla on Facebook Live at 8:30PM ET Monday. We know you have questions about Schumer and Pelosi's deal this week, what's next for the Dream Act, and other things happening on Capitol Hill. Come ready to ask them on Monday right on our Facebook page.
