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 ...

You won't wanna miss this → sign my petition for Medicare for All!
Imagine a world where everyone could go to school, start a business, and have a baby, and they would never lose the health care plan they had from birth. Imagine if everyone who got sick could go to the doctor, without financial worries piled on top. Imagine if every time you changed jobs or moved cities, you didn’t have to worry about navigating the red tape of another health plan. Imagine if we all took action now to tell Congress it’s time for Medicare for All. We the People defeated the disastrous Republican plan to kick millions of Americans off of our health care. But we need to do more than just resist—we need to persist for a better future for all of us. I believe everyone who lives in America should have guaranteed access to affordable health care. It’s past time we made health care simpler, seamless, affordable, and accessible for all Americans, not just those who can afford it. It’s time for Medicare for All. Sign my petition and let’s tell Congress it’s
No more 💰 for millionaires and billionaires
The Trump tax scam perfectly illustrates his values. The Trump plan gives hundreds of billions to big corporations and the very wealthiest, while raising taxes on many middle class families. That's wrong. Those who have done well have a patriotic duty to pay their fair share. That's why I'm leading the fight in the U.S. Senate Budget Committee to say, "Not one penny more in tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires!” Until we've ensured that every American has affordable, quality health care, not one penny more in tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. Until we fund our public schools, not one penny more in tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. Until we fix our roads, bridges, and failing infrastructure, not one penny more in tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. Until we've invested in clean and renewable energy and turned the corner on climate disruption, not one penny more in tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. Until every American has a secure, family-wa
Birth control IS basic health care.
Sign my petition to tell Donald Trump: Stop attacking women's health care! From day one of his presidency, Donald Trump and the Republicans in Congress have waged devastating attacks on women's health. They cut programs to address violence against women. They fought to defund Planned Parenthood. And just recently, Trump moved to allow employers to deny women insurance coverage for contraception. I'm fighting back. Bosses have no place deciding whether their employees can access basic health care like birth control, no matter what right-wing politicians think. We cannot allow Trump and the Republicans in Congress to roll back the progress we've made on women's health care. Sign my petition: Tell Trump and Congress to stop the attacks on women's health! Without insurance, birth control can cost a woman up to $600 every year. That's a lot of groceries. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, women had better access to birth control than at any point in our history—and it resulted in the low
It’s simple: We keep our promises.
When you make a promise to someone, you keep it. It’s that simple. Our country promised Dreamers that we would not take away their bright futures from them. But Donald Trump has gone back on our promise and is threatening to kick out these young immigrants who know no other home but the United States. It’s heartless and cruel, and I’m fighting to ensure these young people can stay in the country they love. Add your name now: Tell Congress to protect Dreamers! If Trump kicks out these 800,000 young people, it will not only tear their families and our communities apart, but it will damage our local economies. Dreamers are business owners, students, activists, and entrepreneurs. Our country has invested in these young people; why would we make them leave now? Dreamers are American in their heart and soul, just not in their paperwork. It’s absolutely wrong for Trump to rip them from their families and deport them to countries they may have never known. We must act now, as C
