"Tell Mitch McConnell to seat Doug Jones now" petition

December 13, 2017

Bradley Davidson

Hi,

The people of Alabama—powered by strong turnout of African-American voters and overcoming the GOP's shameful voter suppression efforts—spoke up decisively in favor of Doug Jones last night. We also spoke up against the GOP's attempts to strip healthcare from millions while giving massive tax breaks to the richest Americans and largest corporate donors.

But now Mitch McConnell is going back on his word by saying he won't allow the people of Alabama to let our newly elected senator serve until next year. He's choosing this obstructionist political tactic to push through harmful legislation that will hurt the poor and middle class while giving massive tax breaks to the 1%.

Mitch McConnell is exactly the reason so many Alabamians and people across our nation are sick of politics as usual.

The people voted. Let us have our voice. Seat Doug Jones immediately.

That's why I signed a petition to Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader, which says:

"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he wants to "let the people of Alabama make the call" about who our next senator will be.

The people have spoken, and we want Doug Jones to immediately step into his rightful role as elected senator from Alabama so he can vote on the pending tax bill which could give cuts to the wealthy at the expense of the middle class and poor.

Tell Mitch McConnell there should not be a tax vote until Doug Jones is seated. The people deserve a voice."
