Flash Actions

Flash Actions…

Flash Actions are rapid responses to hot issues. We post these actions on social media (starting with Facebook) so we can react inside the news cycle, while the controversy is still boiling.

Flash Actions are not core or long-term issues, like our Downsize DC Agenda. But they help us pressure Congress while expanding the “Downsize DC Army,” as we explained in How DC Downsizers can overwhelm Congress in a Flash. Of course…

Not everyone is on Facebook or other social media, so we also post our Flash Actions here, in reverse chronological order, with the most recent first.

Please pick one or more issues and take action
