  • OPPOSE H​.​R. 6666, the COVID–19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act
    H.R. 6666, otherwise known as the COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, and Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act, was introduced and referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on 5/1/2020. This bill is sponsored by Representative Bobby Rush (D) of Illinois District 1. The bill has 59 cosponsors, 58 Democrats and 1 Republican. Summary H.R. 6666 provides 100 billion dollars this year and unlimited federal funding in future years to create and operate a massive and likely unconstitutional surveillance, testing, and tracing enforcement system under the guise of “protecting” Americans against coronavirus. H.R. 6666 is a federal funding bill. It proposes to create a surveillance infrastructure that can be used by the federal government, as well as local and state governments and private businesses, to require medical testing and tracking of all citizens in violation of fundamental civil liberties as set forth in the Bill of Rights, which include the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution designed to protect individual rights and limit the power of the government. H.R. 6666 lacks safeguards and conditions related to funding of the proposed surveillance operation to prevent it from being applied to intrusive programs mandating testing and surveillance without an individual’s voluntary consent. If this legislation is passed by Congress and enacted into law, it could lead to denial of an individual’s right to appear in public spaces and travel; the right to employment and education or participation in government-funded services, and the right to receive care in a government funded hospital or other any other medical facility. H.R. 6666 specifically allows for funded entities to home quarantine a person against their will, even while they are healthy. Once a vaccine is available, the testing and tracing results potentially could be used to force individuals to be injected with a COVID-19 vaccine against their will. According to a Press Release from the sponsor Congressman Bobby L. Rush, “Reopening our economy and getting back to normal will be all but impossible if we do not step up our testing efforts and implement robust and widespread contact tracing,” said Rep. Rush. “Until we have a vaccine to defeat this dreaded disease, contact tracing in order to understand the full breadth and depth of the spread of this virus is the only way we will be able to get out from under this.” The Devil is in the Details H.R. 6666 would allow The Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), acting through the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to award federal grants to eligible entities to conduct diagnostic testing for COVID–19, to trace and monitor the contacts of infected individuals, and to support the quarantine of such contacts. Through the use of mobile health units, as necessary, individuals would be tested and provided with services related to testing and quarantine at their residences. The amount of money appropriated for fiscal year 2020 would be $100,000,000,000 (one hundred billion dollars) and more money may be appropriated by Congress as necessary for any subsequent fiscal year during which the emergency period continues. A grant recipient may use the federal grant funds, in support of the above referenced activities to hire, train, compensate, and pay the expenses of individuals; and to purchase personal protective equipment and other supplies. Priority will be given to applicants in “hot spots” and medically underserved communities and to entities that hire residents of the community where the activity will occur. Hot spots are defined as a geographic area where the rate of infection with the virus that causes COVID–19 exceeds the national average. Medically underserved communities are communities given that term in section 799B of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 295p). Entities eligible for the grant money are defined as a federally qualified health center, school-based clinic, disproportionate share hospital, academic medical center, nonprofit organization, institute of higher education, high school, and any other type of entity as determined by the Secretary of HHS. H.R. 6666 Does Not Guarantee Privacy Section 2 (e) of H.R. 6666 is entitled “Federal Privacy Requirements”, but it does little to protect privacy. It states that “Nothing in this section shall be construed to supersede any Federal privacy or confidentiality requirement, including the regulations promulgated under section 264(c) of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (Public Law 104–191; 110 Stat. 2033) and section 543 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290dd–2). In actuality, H.R. 6666 offers few privacy protections for Americans who will be surveilled and tested without their consent under programs funded with this grant. In fact, Americans can expect their privacy to be violated under TRACE funded programs. That is because the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) 45 CFR 164.512(b)(1)(i) has always allowed disclosure of private health information to government officials and other government approved entities including foreign governments without the knowledge or consent of the individual for the purpose of conducting public health surveillance, investigations or interventions. Bill of Rights Cannot Be Suspended During A “Public Health Crisis” The Bill of Rights in the U.S. Constitution cannot be set aside by the federal government or state governments during pandemics or other public health emergencies. In The United States Statement of Interest in Support of Plaintiffs, filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) in a case last month in which church goers attending a drive-in sermon were issued citations for violating an executive order in Mississippi, the DOJ stated;

  • Stop 50,000 republicans from patrolling voters in key states!
    I strongly believe, based on strong evidence, that our current administration is intent on destroying our constitutional rights, our freedom, and the civil rights of people of color and immigrants. Allowing 50,000 Republicans to patrol voting stations in key states and turn away anyone they suspect might be suspicious, coupled with a widespread propaganda campaign about Democrats as agents of election theft, is outrageous. This is a blatant attempt at voter suppression to tilt the election in their favor. This will mainly affect voters of color and immigrants, and probably anyone who "appears" to be a Democrat or liberal to them. It is likely that the patrollers will fabricate any excuse to turn voters away and make it impossible for them to contest it. This action is further proof that the Trump administration and his GOP supporters will stop at NOTHING to make sure he wins a second term. It confirms the entrenched corruption of this administration and its attempt to dismantle democracy, civil rights, and the right to vote unless the vote is in their favor. We cannot afford a second Trump term; it will be a catastrophic event for this country and the world.

  • Stop Trump’s war on independent watchdogs
    Donald Trump just majorly escalated his war against legitimate, independent oversight of his administration. His latest target? Steve Linick, the Inspector General at the State Department -- who was conducting an investigation into Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s alleged abuse of government funds. Pompeo has repeatedly come under fire for reportedly using State Department money for political purposes -- like making frequent visits to Kansas where he was rumored to be considering a Senate run, as well as taking his wife with him on official international trips. And before he was ousted from his position, Linick -- a longtime public servant -- was investigating claims that Pompeo made one of his political appointees do personal tasks for him and his family. Ever since the Senate voted to cover up his crimes, Trump has been trying to eliminate any and all supervision over his administration. Last month, he fired Michael Atkinson, the inspector general who brought the Ukraine whistleblower’s complaint to Congress -- and recently, Trump had acting inspector general Glenn Fine removed from his role of overseeing the administration's COVID-19 relief spending. Now, it seems that Trump has fired Linick to shield Pompeo from accountability. And unless Congress responds, Trump won’t stop until there isn’t a single White House watchdog left -- no one overseeing his administration's decisions, and nobody to put a stop to waste, fraud, or abuse of power. Add your name to urge Congress to protect independent inspectors general -- by requiring the president to show cause in order to remove them.

  • The Coronavirus is a Test for Our Commonwealth and Country -- You Are Failing
    With six months to go until the November elections, the U.S. Senate has a waning opportunity to show our country what compassionate, bipartisan leadership looks like, and whether majority leader Mitch McConnell is capable of that leadership. His legacy will likely be defined by how the Senate meets this historic challenge. An obsessive focus on reshaping the federal judiciary will pale in comparison to an underwhelming and tepid response to the significant needs of our commonwealth and nation to meet the coronavirus crisis. Sen. McConnell's recent actions are deeply troubling. From stating, “Some of these governors, particularly the Democrat governors, it seems, enjoy this extra power over people’s lives, and ... the governors have been struck down, been overruled, for being sort of drunk with power at the opportunity to keep everybody locked up,” to recently saying that President Obama should "keep his mouth shut," and calling him "classless." This comes on the heels of his irresponsible suggestion that states should declare bankruptcy instead of expecting federal support. Please sign and share our petition to encourage Leader McConnell to make the most of the moment, and set a new, bipartisan direction for his leadership of the current Senate session.
