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 ...

Stop the GOP's "wealth care" plan!
We need affordable health care now. But the Republicans’ plan means 23 million fewer Americans get health care coverage and it also raises prices on drugs, premiums, and deductibles, all while giving the wealthiest Americans bigger tax breaks. That’s called wealth care, not health care. I’m working every day to protect the Affordable Care Act and expand access to health care—not repeal it and leave millions vulnerable to untreated illness, bankruptcy, or worse. Stand with me—chip in now to support affordable health care for all. Our fight isn’t over. Although House Republicans voted to gut Medicaid, to charge seniors sky-high premiums, and to make women pay extra if they want maternity care or birth control covered, we still have a chance to stop Trumpcare in the Senate. I believe we can—and we must—fight this dangerous bill with all we’ve got. Lives depend on it. Chip in now to build our movement and stop Trumpcare, once and for all. Onward! Jeff
What the health care fight is really about
This National Nurses Day, let’s remind ourselves what we’re fighting for. When my wife Mary, an RN, shares stories about the challenges her patients face, it reminds me that health care isn't some abstract issue. Every day, millions of Americans face difficult health challenges – a broken bone, a cancer, or other serious disease. When that happens, a person hopes that they or their loved ones will get the care that they need and not go bankrupt in the process. This fight about health care is about how we care for one another as human beings. But too many politicians seem to have forgotten that. As Donald Trump and the Republican Congress celebrate House passage of a bill that rips coverage away from millions, it’s clear that we need less focus on political wins and more on compassion and caring. Now that the health care battle moved to the Senate, I’ll fight every day to ensure every American has access to quality, affordable health care. We’re not going backwards. Millions
Sign the petition: Tell Congress to lower prescription drug prices!
Big pharmaceutical companies are supposed to make drugs that heal people, not rip them off. But all too often, our system allows those companies to do just that, hurting seniors and working families in the process. How bad is it? Maybe you heard the story of the “Pharma Bro” who launched a hedge fund two years after college, created a pharmaceutical company, bought the rights to a life-saving AIDS and malaria drug, and jacked up the price from $13 to $750. And he’s hardly alone. Millions of Americans don’t fill their prescriptions because they can’t afford them. They’re ripping us off, and it’s up to us to stop them. Sign my petition right now to tell Congress to lower drug prices! By passing the Improving Access to Affordable Prescription Drugs Act, Congress can stop pharmaceutical price gouging and allow Medicare to negotiate fair drug prices and lower costs for seniors. We are the wealthiest country on earth, and yet our laws favor Big Pharma’s greed over the heal
Our resistance is working!
I just checked with my team and at last count, 642,193 people signed our petition demanding the appointment of a Special Prosecutor to investigate the Trump team's ties to Russia. We spoke loudly, with one voice. We made it absolutely clear that an independent investigation is required to make sure that the American people learn the full truth. Your commitment to our resistance will lead the way toward our American renewal. We can't let up. We keep up this fight -- and make sure this investigation has the full range of authority and the resources it needs to pursue all of the facts, no matter where they lead. America is counting on us.
