Tell Your Senators: Medicare is Here to Stay
Medicare has taken care of Americans since it was passed in 1966, ensuring that those in need have access to healthcare when they need it most. But now, Paul Ryan and Republicans want to privatize it, threatening to end Medicare as we know it. Stand up to Paul Ryan and demand that Medicare remain untampered with. During a Fox News interview, Speaker Ryan asserted that “what people don’t realize is because of Obamacare, Medicare is going broke.” Not only is this a complete lie, as Obamacare is predicted to raise $63 billion for Medicare, but it is a threat to entitlements that cannot be ignored. The fight to protect Medicare is now more important than ever before. Add your name to help Senate Democrats protect entitlements right now. In these difficult times it’s essential that we stay united to fight for the issues that affect our lives. Medicare helps over 55 million elderly and disabled Americans every year. This is a fight that we need to win. Stand with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee today to make a difference. Tell Paul Ryan that Medicare is off limits to structural changes of any sort.
Stand up for President Obama’s Legacy
President Obama has had countless amazing accomplishments while in the White House: Leading over 77 straight months of private sector job growth, passing Obamacare, and helping bring about marriage equality—all while facing an incredibly intolerant GOP Congress. But all of his accomplishments are at risk in this upcoming election. Donald Trump and his GOP allies have their sights set on dragging America into their divided and hateful world. Join Senate Democrats in fighting for the future of Obama’s legacy! We can’t let Republicans tear down the progress of the past eight years. Donald Trump has taken over the GOP by promising to turn back the clock on everything President Obama has accomplished – vowing to turn back every single one of President Obama’s executive orders. That’s simply not an acceptable outcome. Join the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in defending President Obama’s legacy from Trump and the GOP! Senate Democrats know the only way towards a better America is by moving forward. Retaking the Senate in 2016 is essential to protecting Obama’s legacy while continuing the progressive movement.
Stand with Bernie & Take Back the Senate
Senator Bernie Sanders said it best: “We produced, by far, the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party. Our job now is to see that platform implemented by a Democratic Senate." Answer Bernie’s call and sign up to help us elect a Democratic Senate in November. Right now, our progressive platform is in danger. The GOP is fighting hard to make sure that Donald Trump becomes president and can work with a Republican Senate. We need more than just a Democratic President to bring about the progress we need. We need Democratic Senators to help carry our policies through Congress. Add your name and help Democrats retake the Senate. Now is our chance to show what we can accomplish when we unite and work together. Take a stand and support the Democratic platform by turning the Senate blue in November.
Tell the GOP: No More Hate Bills
Republicans tried and failed to deny marriage equality to all Americans, now they’re looking for any way possible to discriminate against LGBT people. Join Senate Democrats calling on the end of local “hate bills” and passage of the federal non-discrimination act, The Equality Act. The Obama administration recently stepped in to protect the rights of LGBT youth in schools. But the Republican’s backlash was swift. It’s clear this isn’t a fight that will end soon. It’s time to stand united to tell the GOP that the LGBT community deserves equality across every state in this nation. The Equality Act would prevent state and local municipalities from discriminating against their citizens based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Have your voice heard! Sign the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s petition to say no to “hate bills” and yes to the Equality Act! By signing on, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will keep you updated on our efforts to elect a Democratic Senate that will help bring equality to every state.
Demand a Hearing for Obama’s Nominee
For the last 40 years it’s taken an average of 67 days for the Senate to give a hearing to the President’s nominee for the Supreme Court. The GOP doesn’t seem to care. President Obama did his job. He nominated an experienced, centrist judge that both Republicans and Democrats have praised in the past. The GOP doesn’t seem to care. Join Senate Democrats in demanding that Republicans give President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee a hearing. It’s time the GOP did their jobs! Everywhere in America, if someone refuses to do their job they are quickly relieved of their duties. It’s time we demanded the same standards for our elected officials. We elect Senators to govern, not ignore their Constitutional duties. Considering President Obama’s nominee is not optional. Republicans need to start doing their jobs. Sign this petition to show you’ll fight back against the GOP’s shameful obstructionism. Demand they show some respect and give President Obama’s nominee a hearing!

Stand Up Against Trump’s Hateful Rhetoric
Donald Trump is now the presumptive Republican nominee, meaning he is one election away from becoming President. He’s already started to recruit support in the Senate! Democrats must fight back and retake the Senate in 2016 to guard against this nightmare scenario. From breaking up families through deportation to disrespecting women on a daily basis, Trump will tear down any progress we’ve seen under Obama. We cannot allow for the possibility of a Trump presidency and a Republican-led Senate to exist together. We must stand strong against Trump and retake the Senate majority. Stand with Senate Democrats and let’s fight for progressive principles in the 2016 election. Senate Republicans shut down the government in 2013 and continue to regularly attack progressive causes, such as women’s healthcare and Obamacare. A President Trump would take their aggression and rhetoric to a whole new level. Sign this petition to show you’ll fight back against Trump and his GOP allies in the Senate. Help make a Democratic Senate a reality in 2016. By signing on, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will keep you updated on our efforts to retake the Senate in 2016.

Defend Women’s Healthcare Rights from the GOP
Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for President, stated in an interview that he would support “some form of punishment” for women who have an abortion, were it outlawed. This is not a statement to dismiss lightly, like most Donald Trump positions tend to be. This is a direct assault on women’s healthcare rights. Stand with Senate Democrats in defending a woman’s right to make their own choices when it comes to their healthcare. This fight for women’s healthcare isn’t new. Republicans have attacked Planned Parenthood for years, completely discounting the lifesaving services the group provides to millions of women. While Donald Trump is the one who most overtly voiced his anti-abortion position, it can’t be forgotten that all of the GOP candidates stand with him as fierce anti-abortion politicians. Republicans are unified in the fight to limit women’s healthcare rights. We need to stand together to make sure women have their voices heard. Sign this petition to show you defend women’s healthcare! Fight back against Donald Trump and the GOP’s constant attacks! By signing on, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will keep you updated on our efforts to defend women’s healthcare at all costs.
Tell Republicans: Do Your Jobs NOW
Despite the divisive and disastrous comments Donald Trump has said, GOP Senators from across the country have said again and again that they would back Trump if he were the GOP nominee. GOP Senators are also working with Trump and Mitch McConnell to “delay, delay, delay” a Supreme Court nomination until he would take office. Join Senate Democrats in demanding that McConnell and Senate Republicans do their jobs now! McConnell and Senate Republicans think we should wait almost a year for a new president – which they hope will be a Republican. But with every passing primary election, it becomes clearer that Donald Trump is the Republican president that they’re waiting for. We can’t let Mitch McConnell and the Party of Trump win. Demand that Senate Republicans do their jobs NOW. Agree to vote on President Obama’s nominee! By signing on, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee will keep you up to date on our efforts to take back the Senate in 2016.
