Make Calls Urging No TrumpCare

What to say, "Hi, this is [your name] calling from [city, state.] Can I speak to your Legislative Director? Passing TrumpCare would cause 24 million Americans to lose their insurance and cause premiums to skyrocket. Over 900,000 Texans, including 153,000 Texans battling substance use disorder, could lose their care. I urge your representative to do what is right and vote against TrumpCare. A vote for TrumpCare is a vote for Texans to die.”

Hazlewood

Almost two years ago, I sent the email below.

I can’t believe I’m writing you again to protect the Hazlewood Act. Late last week, Republican J.M. Lozano filed a bill that would slash veterans’ Hazlewood Education benefits. Our veterans and military families deserve better than Texas Republicans ripping college away from them and their families.

It’s not right, and not Texan to betray our veterans. I’m asking you to use your voice today and call Republican Representative J.M. Lozano’s office and ask him to dump H.B. 3766:

Call Republican Representative J.M. Lozano's Office:

(512) 463-0463

What to say, "Hi, this is [your name]. Can I speak to your Legislative Director? We must keep our promises to veterans and their families. I ask that your Representative dump H.B. 3766, which would gut the Hazlewood Act. Education opens the door to a better life to veterans and their families. Please fully fund the Hazlewood program.”

Thank you,

Cesar Blanco
Texas Representative, El Paso

Hi %%firstname(there)%% --

Education benefits for Texas veterans and families are under attack.

Today, the day before Memorial Day, some of our colleagues in the Texas House of Representatives are going to vote to turn their backs on veterans and their family members. We need your help, right away, to convince them not to do that.

As a veteran, I know just how important education benefits like Hazlewood are for our fellow veterans and their families living in Texas. Education opens the door to a better life to veterans and their families.

Several years ago, the state of Texas created an education program called the Hazlewood Act, which helps pay tuition and fees for veterans, their spouses, and dependents. Unfortunately, the Hazlewood Act is under attack, and we need to act fast to save the integrity of this important program.

I know if you call your representative today and asked them to protect the Hazlewood Act, we can win this important vote.

Call your Texas House Representative right now and ask them to protect the Hazlewood Veterans Education Act:

make the call

What to say, "Hi, this is [your name]. Can I speak to your Legislative Director? We must keep our promises to veterans and their families. Please put Texas veterans and their families first this legislative session by voting to protect the Hazlewood Act. Education opens the door to a better life to veterans and their families. Please fully fund the Hazlewood program.”

When mom or dad serves in the military, the whole family serves with them. Texas Republicans want to take away the Hazlewood education benefit for thousands of children of veterans. That’s not right, and that’s not Texan.

Please support our veterans and their families this Memorial Day weekend by calling your Texas House Representative and asking them to protect the Hazlewood Act.

Thank you for all of your help today,

Cesar Blanco
Texas Representative, El Paso

 

If you support free community college for Texas students, add your name in support of House Bill 1947, which establishes the Texas Promise Scholarship Program:

add your name

In Texas, we dream big, but we dream even bigger for our children and grandchildren. But there is a harsh reality dashing the dreams of so many in Texas. College tuition is out of control.

I've met so many amazing young people who are achieving their dreams despite the challenges they face every single day. Young people who work multiple jobs and whose families make hard sacrifices, so they can become the first person in their family to graduate from college.

But it doesn't have to be this way.

That's why I've introduced House Bill 1947, which would create the Texas Promise Scholarship Program and give every Texas high school graduate two years of community college for free.

Our families already have enough to worry about. They shouldn't go broke fighting for a fair shot at the American dream. If you believe in free college, add your name:

add your name

Democrats understand that every hard-working student in Texas deserves an opportunity to go to college and be ready for the jobs of the future.

The next generation of Texas leaders should be our number one priority. We must work together to pass this bill.

In order for that to happen, we need to raise our voices -- all of us together -- and demand a better future for our families. I hope you'll support my bill and the future of Texas by adding your name today:

We know that the Texas economy has already fallen from 3rd to 21st under Republican Gov. Greg Abbott. Now, Dan Patrick wants Texas’ economy to take another $8.5 billion dollar hit and lose 185,000 jobs because of Republicans’ obsession with bathrooms.

We cannot afford Trump Republicans’ discrimination. Keep calling, tweeting, and emailing Texas Republicans and let them know you oppose their bad bill.

What to say, "Hi, this is [your name] calling from [city.] Can I speak to your Legislative Director? The Bathroom Bill (SB6) is bad for business, bad for Texans, and just down right wrong. Our Texas economy would take an $8.5 billion hit and lose 185,000 jobs because of this bill. Our great state is better than this. Please tackle the real challenges facing this state instead of playing potty police.”
