Tell Mitch McConnell to seat Doug Jones now

To be delivered to Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader

Petition Statement

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he wants to "let the people of Alabama make the call" about who our next senator will be.

The people have spoken, and we want Doug Jones to step into his rightful role as elected senator from Alabama so he can vote on the pending tax bill which could give cuts to the wealthy at the expense of the middle class and poor.

Tell Mitch McConnell there should not be a tax vote until Doug Jones is seated. The people deserve a voice.
There are currently 180,802 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The people of Alabama—powered by strong turnout of African-American voters and overcoming the GOP's shameful voter suppression efforts—spoke up decisively in favor of Doug Jones last night. We also spoke up against the GOP's attempts to strip healthcare from millions while giving massive tax breaks to the richest Americans and largest corporate donors.

But Mitch McConnell says that he won't allow our newly elected senator to vote on the GOP's controversial tax bill. He's choosing to push through harmful legislation that will hurt the poor and middle class while giving massive tax breaks to the 1 percent.

Mitch McConnell is exactly the reason so many Alabamians and people across our nation are sick of politics as usual.

The people voted. Let us have our voice. Seat Doug Jones immediately upon certification of Alabama's election results—then hold the tax vote.
