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House repealed Obamacare -- fight back now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
Senate Democrats Will Resist and Persist!
Mitch McConnell has given us our fighting words for 2017: “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.” When he tried to silence Elizabeth Warren for using her voice, for giving power to Coretta Scott King’s letter, he sent a message to ALL Democrats. We will keep marching, flooding the Capitol switchboards with phone calls, and showing that when it comes to our values we will NOT sit down and shut up. Add your name and stand with Elizabeth Warren and Senate Democrats. The courage Elizabeth Warren demonstrated on the Senate floor is what we need to have on full display every day. There’s too much at stake to be quiet. Silencing opposition is no way for Republicans to govern. We must fight back to defend the values we care for. Now is the time to stand with Elizabeth Warren and Senate Democrats in resisting the Trump agenda. Say you’re with us.
Stand Up for the Affordable Care Act!
The new Republican Congress has only just been sworn in and they’ve made it clear that repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is their first priority. Now, more than ever, is the time to fight back. Tell Republicans: it’s not right to repeal a law that provides vital health care coverage to over 30 million Americans. The ACA was designed to help those who needed coverage the most. Many of those enrolled were the less fortunate, had pre-existing conditions hampering their ability to get insurance, or simply could not afford their own plan. It’s up to us to defend those who need the ACA. Stand with Senate Democrats! Defend a law that has improved and saved lives across the country. Despite their promises, Republicans have offered no alternative to the ACA. Repealing the law would immediately strip coverage for those who need it most. That’s simply not right. Join the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in backing the ACA for the simple reason that it works. Tell Republicans once and for all that affordable healthcare has and will continue to work wonders for this nation.
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.
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.
