This week I called Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and pressed him to oppose the GOP tax scam. I also warned his staffer not to use this massive giveaway to the wealthy as an excuse to cut Social Security and Medicare, which Rubio offered as an answer to critics who said the tax bill will explode the deficit. He voted for the bill anyway – of course – and I’ve no doubt he will be out in front pushing to gut the social safety net.

It’s awfully difficult to stay motivated to continue making these calls, as they seem to have zero impact. But then I remind myself that, if I don’t call, I guarantee I’ll have zero impact….
