"MAGA Republicans are engaged in reckless hostage-taking by threatening to force America into default. It’s dangerous and wrong." - President Biden
"Let me be clear. I will not agree to a deal with House Republicans that protects billions in subsidies for Big Oil while putting the health care of 21 million Americans at risk. Or that protects wealthy tax cheats while putting food assistance at risk for 1 million Americans."
Who is most likely to be a casualty? Which congressional districts do they live in? How is this impacted by access to healthcare, education and opportunity where they live? How will MAGA demands hurt those already being hurt by floods, droughts and wildfires? Check this map to see if you're likely to be a casualty.
MAGA Hostage Casualty Map
How likely are you to be a casualty?
This map is based on the Climate And Economic Justice Screening Tool. Your chances of being a casualty depend on the burdens your community faces. A community is disadvantaged if it is in a census tract that suffers from environmental, climate, or other burdens such as:
- Population with asthma OR diabetes OR heart disease OR low life expectancy
- Areas with a large population dependent on Medicaid, Social Security, Medicare, Student Aid, Veterans Benefits OR Foodstamps.
- Communities with linguistic isolation OR low median income OR poverty OR unemployment
- Areas with historic underinvestment OR are at or above the 90th percentile for housing cost OR lack of green space OR lack of indoor plumbing OR lead paint
- Districts with abandoned mine land OR Formerly Used Defense Sites OR are at or above the 90th percentile for proximity to hazardous waste facilities OR proximity to Superfund sites (National Priorities List (NPL))

Indivisible Launches “Unrepresentatives” Campaign
"Through the "Unrepresentatives" campaign, Indivisible is convening a national cohort of Indivisible groups in these districts to organize a coordinated multi-district accountability campaign across 8 states. The local groups are devising in-district strategies, which Indivisible will support with direct financial resources and support from national policy, political, and training staff. This cohort model will help ensure that on-the-ground action is informed by national legislative strategy and linked up to the broader progressive ecosystem. In addition to rapid response-style protests calling attention to their bad votes, Indivisible groups will be regularly calling on these Republicans to publicly condemn their fellow Republicans' worst positions, documenting when they don't, publicizing their takes in local media. Indivisible will be giving them training, media training and PR help, and funding for billboards and ads, props and costumes.
“Indivisibles know that these 18 Republicans are the achilles heel of the MAGA House, and we’re going to step up our work to demonstrate that there is a steep political price to pay for extremism,” said Dani Negrete, National Political Director of Indivisible. “In 2023, Indivisible will be doubling down with this anti-MAGA program to both limit the harm done by this majority, and to set ourselves up to retake the majority in 2024.” - Indivisible
