Hello Indivisible 49 Members,

Let's make some noise now while Issa's back in the district for the two-week congressional recess. Our fight to save ACA turned back the first GOP repeal and replace plan. We want to keep the pressure on. The GOP will try cut essential programs while funding Trump's wall and deportation force during the looming budget fight. We can also keep a spotlight on Trump's conflicts of interest with the April 15 Tax March.

This Week’s Successes
Tuesday's Rally 
We had another strong showing this past week. In honor of the 49th anniversary of MLK Jr's death, Reverend Beth Johnson inspired us to stay strong as we continue to resist the Trump administration. On a lighter note, we were ready with beach toys in case they turned on the sprinklers again. 

Upcoming Events
Stay tuned for a Member Meeting announcement soon. In the meantime, April is a busy month with marches and our weekly rallies at Issa's office.

April 11 Rally: Welcome Home, Darrell Issa! 
This Tuesday, we rally again at Issa's Vista office. We will deliver Easter baskets full of postcards to Issa every day next week. A group from Los Angeles is coming down to show their support for us here in District 49. Join us
April 15: Tax March
April 21: Issa at Congressional Luncheon in San Diego
All of the San Diego area congressional reps will speak at this event hosted by the San Diego Chamber of Commerce. Let's tell them Trump is bad for business. Sign up to rally outside or email if you want to purchase a seat at our table.
Legislative Update
Congress is on a two-week recess. Here are the updates from this busy past week.

Russia: Nunes stepped aside from the House Russia probe. His replacements, Conaway (in Trump’s pocket), along with Gowdy and Rooney are no good either, but the American people (that’s you) will hold their feet to the fire, right?
Health Care: GOP infighting prevented efforts to resuscitate their bill. During the recess, alt-conservative lobbying groups will put pressure on moderates to accept new amendments to dismantle the ACA preexisting conditions clause. Takeaway: Stay vigilant.
Gorsuch/Senate: Gorsuch was confirmed as Supreme Court justice after GOP senators voted to eliminate the filibuster for SCOTUS nominees. Implications: legislative filibuster dismantling could be next. Gorsuch is likely to affect decisions on second amendment, voting rights, and separation of church and state this spring.
Syria: First, our continued prayers go out to the Syrian people. Next: Democratic leadership insists that 45 must come to Congress to approve acts of war.

See the full legislative briefing.
Keep up the great work everyone!
