Nevertheless, they persisted (again!)
Senate Republicans interrupted Senator Kamala Harris during Russia hearings not once, but twice. She persisted. So did Senators Claire McCaskill and Patty Murray, both of whom were interrupted for asking when Republicans would hold Trumpcare hearings. Add your name to thank our fearless women Senators for standing up for what is right, and help us elect more to fight for us every day in the Capitol. In and out of the Senate, women have led the way in holding the Trump Administration accountable. Women’s marches around the country showed what we can do when we come together to fight for our shared values. Sign your name to show the GOP that democratic women senators WILL NOT be intimidated or silenced from speaking out on issues that matter to Americans. Add your name today.
House repealed Obamacare -- fight back now
The House just voted to repeal Obamacare. Now health care repeal moves on to the Senate and we’re springing into action immediately to stop it. Add your name right now to help put pressure on Republicans to stop Obamacare repeal. The Senate is our last line of defense -- if Obamacare repeal makes it through both chambers of Congress, Trump is guaranteed to sign it. 24 million people stand to lose health insurance if this bill passes and Americans with pre-existing conditions will be thrown back to days of bankruptcy to get the care they need. They’re counting on us to stop this bill. We only have one shot to stop the GOP from repealing Obamacare and we have to do everything in our power to shut this down. Please add your name right now.

Tell Trump his reckless and selfish budget is a NO-GO
Trump’s budget proposal slashes funding for Meals on Wheels, the National Endowment for the Arts, school lunches, and Pell Grants. But since he took office, WEEKLY trips to his Mar-a-Lago Resort cost taxpayers OVER $25 Million. $25 Million could also: - Serve 9,000 seniors and veterans Meals on Wheels - Cover 4,000 Medicaid patients for a year - Fund 7,000 Pell Grants for low-income college students - Feed 61,000 students school lunch Add your name: Tell Trump his reckless and selfish budget is a NO-GO.

Trump's hoping we ignore this:
Last week, President Donald Trump signed legislation that will allow states to block funding for family planning clinics that also provide access to critical women's health care -- including Planned Parenthood. This latest attack on women's health care is truly appalling, but unfortunately not surprising. And that's why we can't stop fighting. Add your name right now if you're with Senate Democrats on this: stop the attacks on women's health. From Trump's Supreme Court pick to the GOP attempts to roll back the progress we've made on health care -- it just doesn't end. They want us to be quiet. They're hoping we ignore this, and all they have planned. But we won't back down. We won’t stop fighting for the millions of women in this country, for their access to their health care, for them to be able to make decisions for themselves and for their constitutionally protected right to make their own choices about their own bodies. Are you with us? Add your name right now to stand with Senate Democrats to defend access to women's health care. Derivative of photo by Gage Skidmore. CC by-sa 2.0
Tell Senate Republicans: Don't Gut NPR and PBS
Republican extremists in Congress have spent months refusing to address the important issues facing our country, deciding to focus instead on the demands of the Tea Party. Now they’re trying to defund Sesame Street, Curious George, and public news coverage. While these cuts – a full funding repeal to both National Public Radio and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting – won’t have an impact on our budget deficits, they will hurt quality programming and cripple a crucial public service. Join Senate Democrats today in the fight against Republican extremism. Stand up for NPR and PBS before it’s too late.
