Tell Your Republican House Representative You Oppose their Extreme Agenda
Have you read our latest Indivisible Guide for the 118th Congress? If not, take a look! Here’s an excerpt for folks with Republican MoCs:
We need to take the fight to every GOP member, even when they seem just too extreme to listen or if your district reliably votes Republican. Some GOP members, like those who were just elected in more competitive districts, are probably more susceptible to the kinds of pressure we are describing here. That’s a reason to go hard and see what happens! But even if your Republican MoC is in a safe district, you never know who will prove to not be able to take the heat, or who will overstep and make themselves vulnerable.
It’s the first Congressional recess, so now is a great opportunity to make your feelings known to your Republican MoCs! The MAGA Majority just spent two weeks throwing the House into chaos, standing by while Kevin McCarthy made shady backroom deals to ultimately be elected Speaker. His caucus stood by while he handed the keys of power to MAGA extremists like Lauren Boebert and Matt Gaetz in order to secure their support for McCarthy’s rise to the Speaker’s office. And the GOP showed us their priorities right off the bat:
- Passing a Rules package that gutted the Office of Congressional Ethics
- Making it easier for the ultra wealthy and big corporations to cheat on their taxes
- Attacking abortion access
- Threatening to hold the debt limit hostage in exchange for cuts to critical social programs like Social Security, Medicare, and veterans benefits
This was an awful (if unsurprising) start, even by MAGA Republican standards. There are going to be many fights ahead, and we need every Indivisible member to be strategic advocates in highlighting the MAGA extremism of their GOP MoCs.
Fill out this form right now and we’ll connect you to your Representative. Tell them that you’re angry over the changes made to the House Rules, their week-one votes, and the games they’re playing with the debt ceiling that could lead to cuts to important programs and have negative effects on our economy. Let them know that you expect them to prioritize the needs of your district, not try to shield themselves from accountability.

Tell Your Republican House Rep You Oppose Their Extreme Agenda
Hello, I’m a constituent from [part of state], and I’m calling to tell [Representative] that I’m angry about the rules changes adopted in the House this week.
In just the first week, you’ve shown that you’re intent on pursuing harmful policies like cuts to Social Security and Medicare, doing favors for the wealthy and big corporations, and eliminating reproductive freedoms. But the changes to the House Rules may be the worst action of all – the idea that you would gut the Office of Congressional Ethics in order to avoid accountability and oversight is just wrong, and sets a terrible example for our country.
Tell [Representative] that this is infuriating and inappropriate, and that I expect more from my elected representative. We have work to do to help strengthen our community, and it’s not about gutting ethics oversight or helping the rich dodge their taxes.
Your call to hold House Republicans accountable makes all the difference! Tell all your friends to call as well!
