Ilhan Omar, Live from Congress, The Fight for a New America
Emergency Podcast System: Rumble w/ Michael Moore Ep. 213
Congress could be on the verge of passing an historic investment in America's human and physical infrastructure not seen since the 1930's. The overwhelming majority of the Democratic caucus is behind it, the majority of Americans in countless opinion polls support it and it is the backbone of President Biden's domestic agenda.
Yet two Democratic Senators — Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona — stand in the way of getting it done.
I just recorded an “Emergency Podcast System” episode of Rumble with Michael Moore with special guest, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. She serves as Whip of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and I called her to find out where this legislation currently stands and what the American people can do to help pass it.
The answer: call Senator Sinema and Senator Manchin's offices and tell them to support the Build Back Better Act.
Call 202-225-3121 or 202-224-3121
Listen to the podcast (above in Substack or below on one of the podcast apps) and take a look at these pieces by Rep. Omar:
Why we're willing to put our votes on the line for the Build Back Better Act
By Reps. Pramila Jayapal, Katie Porter and Ilhan Omar
Democrats must be bold to save America from Republican attacks
By Reps. Ilhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib
And yes, if you live in Arizona or West Virginia it is especially important for you to call Senator Manchin and Senator Sinema. They need to hear a tsunami of phone calls right now on Capitol Hill from we the people. We expect no less than both of these infrastructure bills to be passed in the way that President Biden has said that he wants them to be passed to Build Back Better.
To the phones!
