Merkley joins uprising to change Senate's rules...

Joining forces with some of the Senate's newest members, Sen. Jeff Merkley is working to loosen the institution's rules on filibusters and other procedural tools that are used to stall progress on even the most basic legislative actions. The gambit is a direct response to the often immovable barriers that can be erected by a single senator or a small group. Those tools have have blocked hundreds of bills and nominations in the last year, frustrating many members but especially those like Merkley who were elected in 2008. Merkley is circulating a 7-page memo that outlines his ...

We never bow, we never break.
My feet and throat are a little sore. With so many powerful speeches this week, I spent a lot of time standing. I spent a lot of time clapping. I spent a lot of time cheering. As Vice President Joe Biden said: Not only, not only do we have the largest economy in the world, we have the strongest economy in the world. We have the most productive workers in the world. And given a fair shot, given a fair chance, Americans have never, ever, ever, ever, let their country down. Never. Ordinary people like us who do extraordinary things -- We’ve had candidates before who attempted to get elected to appealing to our fears, but they never succeeded, because we do not scare easily. We never bow, we never bend, we never break when confronted with crisis. No, we endure, we overcome and we always, always, always move forward. We can’t afford to let our country slip backwards. We can’t wait a minute longer to take bold, urgent action on climate change. We can’t allow another far-right Just
As glaciers melt, barely a word from Trump
We heard a lot about so-called threats to our country this week According to the speakers at the GOP convention we should be terrified about immigrants looking to provide for their families, gay couples who want to share their lives together, and Americans exercising their First Amendment rights. Yet, we heard next to nothing about global climate change – the most urgent and perilous challenge facing our planet. As the polar caps melt, saltwater seeps up from the ground in South Florida, and forests in Oregon burn longer and hotter than ever, Donald Trump and his allies have nothing to say about how we’re going to stop it. We need meaningful, urgent action. We need real solutions. We need to stand up to the polluters. We need to elect more Climate Champions to Congress, take back the Senate, and defeat Trump! Jeff
Mike Pence: What you need to know
This is why we need the LGBT Equality Act: Just last year, Donald Trump’s freshly-minted running mate, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, signed into law a license to discriminate against LGBT people in his state. Indiana’s so-called “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” allowed businesses to refuse service to LGBT customers by citing religious belief – an invitation to discriminate against people because of who they are and who they love. Add your name: End LGBT discrimination nationwide! We’ve seen similar laws crop up in states across the country, leaving millions of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Americans vulnerable to discrimination. That’s why, one year ago, I introduced legislation that extends the protections of the Civil Rights Act and other federal protections to LGBT Americans. Sign the Petition: tell Congress it’s time to pass the Equality Act! The vision of equality and opportunity for all Americans will never be a reality if employers and shopkeepers ho
