SCRIPT TO CALL CONGRESS

FAST TRACK (a.k.a. TRADE PROMOTION AUTHORITY)
  “Vote NO on Fast Track

It is critical that we STOP FAST TRACK NOW.  To do this, our U.S. congress members need to know that “We the People” are paying attention to what they are doing in Washington, D.C. We must pressure our elected congress members (CM) to do their “paid job” of making sure that we are protected from bad legislation.  Remember, your elected representative’s work for you.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”   –  Margaret Mead 

STEP ONE:           U.S. Congressional Directory   

Washington, D.C.    http://www.contactingthecongress.org/  or call  (202) 224.3121

STEP TWO:           3 – MINUTE   FAST  TRACK   SCRIPT

Please call the local, regional and D.C. offices of each Senator and Representative to have your voice heard multiple times.  Start with your Representative first, then both Senators. We need thousands of calls going to our CM’s to make sure they are very aware that we are watching.

E A S Y   S C R I P T:
(Breathe and talk slowly. You will do just fine. Be polite and confident.)

“Hi, this is (your full name). I am a constituent of Rep/Senator (name). I live in (name of city). I am calling to request that Rep/Sen (name) vote NO on Fast Track Authority. It is important to me that Congress follows the Constitutional directive to negotiate international trade and that all trade agreements are given full consideration, debate and amendments as needed.

Do you know Rep/Sen (name) position on Fast Track Authority? Will he/she vote Yes or No? (wait for an answer)

Do you know Rep/Sen (name) position on the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement? Will he/she vote Yes or No? (wait for an answer)

(regardless of their response, just continue)

Once again, I am requesting that Rep/Sen (name) vote NO on Fast Track Authority and NO on the TPP! Please be sure he/she gets my message. Thank you.”

We need to concentrate on calling the House, and the Reps who have not committed to voting no on Fast Track! You can find their positions here (click your state on the map): http://www.pdamerica.org/tpp

Once you call your Representative if you can spare 4 more minutes, please call your Senators for good measure.

STEP THREE:  SHARE YOUR VICTORY

Please share the results of your calls at Expose the TPP – USA, in your STATE GROUP and in the NATIONAL GROUP DISCUSSION https://www.facebook.com/groups/ExposeTheTPP.USA/. and/or Americans Organized for Change National Discussion group https://www.facebook.com/groups/AOC.National/

Remember, the VICTORY is that you MADE THE CALLS!!!   Thank you!

  1. Thank you for all you have done to expedite the follow through in our nation needed to generate success in stopping this Horrific Secret Trade Deal that would not only devastate our country, the USA, but also the world in so many facets! Corporations are more Powerful than Presidents. We have a voice and MUST use it in unison, together, now!

  2. So very important to stop the Fast Track on the TPP if we EVER want to get labeling on GMO’s!
    PLEASE Everyone Pay close attention.
    Easy to follow scrip attached for when you call your Reps!!!
    We all must join together that our voice be heard.
    A call is like a Vote, better than a petition!!!
    Big Corps like Monsanto are more powerful than presidents worldwide if the Trans pacific partnership (TPP) goes through!!!
    PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS NOW.
    WE CAN STOP THE TPP IF WE ALL JOIN TOGETHER!!!!!
    SO VERY IMPORTANT.

  3. this is great! I appreciate the script. Called all four & NOT ONE office had a response or knew their boss’s stand on this bill. Ridiculous! I was told to go to a town hall meeting next week by Jim Sensenbrenners rep and ask my question there. (NOT) I left my name address and phone number and told them I EXPECTED a call back with the information I requested by tomorrow. Seems very suspicious with a key bill that can affect so many coming up that the folks who answer the phones for BOTH of my elected congressmen and both senate reps hadn’t a CLUE what their bosses stand was on it. Wishy washy, YOU BET! Seemed like the people who answered the phone didn’t even KNOW what the bill was! Sheesh!

  4. Glad you found the script helpful. January 7th Congress reconvenes. Word is that the request for renewal of Fast Track Authority (now called Trade Promotion Authority or TPA) will happen as early as January 8th. All Americans need to call their Congress members to ensure they will NOT vote to give Obama Fast Track Authority. Our U.S. Constitution gives the authority to negotiate international trade strictly to Congress. We can’t let them hand it over to the Executive branch. The last several administrations have worked for the benefit of the multi/trans-national corporations not for the benefit of the American people. Please call the Congressional switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for your Congress members. Tell them to vote NO on Fast Track/TPA and NO on the TPP.
