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.

Tell Congress: Release Trump's Tax Returns!
For the last four decades, every single one of our presidents has released his tax returns – except for Donald Trump.   Releasing presidential tax returns isn’t a pointless tradition – it’s an assurance that the President is acting in the interests of the public, not just himself. But still to this day, Donald Trump refuses to address bipartisan concerns regarding his hundreds of potential conflicts of interests.   My colleague Senator Ron Wyden recently introduced a bill, the Presidental Tax Transparency Act, to require sitting presidents and presidential nominees to release their tax returns to the public. Add your name right now to tell Congress to require Donald Trump to release his tax returns!   Without Trump’s tax returns, it’s impossible to know how his businesses will benefit from his actions as President. We don’t know if Trump will make more money under his own tax plan, what tax loopholes he’s used in the past,
You bet we need a resistance
Last night, Donald Trump confirmed what many of us already knew: that he will stop at nothing to advance his far-right agenda, not even the health and safety of the American people. Donald Trump doubled down on deporting millions of undocumented immigrants and continued to paint immigrants as dangerous. He ignored the peril of climate change, signaling the end of American leadership in this crisis. Donald Trump completely failed to address bipartisan concerns over his relationship with Russia. Trump renewed his commitment to dismantle our health care system, which would leave millions of the most vulnerable people in our society without adequate coverage. He defended his plans to give tax breaks to big corporations while slashing funding for social programs. Once again, Trump painted a dark vision for America and made it clear that he’s pursuing a radical agenda, not one that serves the American people. You bet we need a resistance. Together, we can fight for our progressive valu
Tomorrow: Defend our Health Care!
Are you ready to defend our health care? We must do everything we can to defend Medicaid, Medicare, and the Affordable Care Act from Republican attacks. If Trump gets his way, millions of our seniors, students, and neighbors will be left without adequate health coverage. For too many, this is a life or death issue. I’m not letting Trump dismantle our health care without a fight. Be the resistance: Join us tomorrow in Eugene for a rally to defend our health care! WHAT: Rally to defend health care in Eugene WHEN: Saturday, February 25, 12:00 p.m. WHERE: Lane Community College, 4000 E. 30th Avenue, Eugene, OR 97405 at the plaza outside of the student center Since parking is limited, we recommend taking public transit. To allow community members to attend, Lane Transit District will be providing special service tomorrow from the Downtown Eugene Station and the Downtown Springfield Station.

Donald Trump & Russia [sign the petition]
Donald Trump's ties to Russia raise serious questions – and the American people deserve straight answers. Sign my petition, calling for a special prosecutor.   Did Mike Flynn break the law when he talked to the Russian Ambassador?     Did the Trump campaign contact Russian intelligence services?    What is the relationship between Trump's team and the Russian government?     What did Stephen Bannon and Donald Trump know, and when did they know it?   We need an independent investigation.  Here's why: Attorney General Jeff Sessions was a top adviser to Trump's campaign, so any investigation he conducts would not be accepted by the American people as the whole truth.   Sign my petition right now to tell Jeff Sessions to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Trump team's ties to Russia.   Jeff
