U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader, who is fighting a tough campaign for a second term, will be joined by U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley to encourage volunteer canvassers this afternoon in Salem neighborhoods.

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 ...

Steve Bannon fired!
This is big – unrepentant white nationalist Steve Bannon has been fired from his job as Donald Trump's chief strategist. That's good news, of course. He should have never been invited into the White House in the first place. But throwing him overboard doesn't get Donald Trump off the hook. Firing Bannon doesn't change what's in his heart, which has been on full display this week. The president's desk once had a sign on it – "The Buck Stops Here." Instead, Trump likes to blame everyone else. No matter who he blames, we're going to keep holding Trump accountable for his words and his actions. And we'll keep building the grassroots movement to resist Trump and renew America. Our best days are yet to come. Let's keep up the fight. Chip in $3 right now – and let's make "Bannon Gets Fired" day one of the strongest days in our movement. Stand up and be counted! Jeff
Sign the petition: Tell Trump health care is your responsibility!
Donald Trump’s plan to let health insurance markets fail is morally appalling—and we have to stop him. Just days after Senate Republicans failed to advance their dangerous plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Trump said, “Let Obamacare fail.” Make no mistake: if Trump sabotages the health care market, costs will skyrocket, people will suffer, and lives will be lost. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office reported that premiums will rise by 20 percent and the federal deficit will increase by nearly $200 billion if he gets his way. This kind of partisan, political game is beyond cynical. We must hold Trump accountable. Sign the petition: Tell Trump health care is now YOUR responsibility! The Affordable Care Act isn’t perfect—and I have long supported a single-payer system that will expand health coverage even further—but the ACA has made millions of American lives better by expanding health coverage through Medicaid expansion, subsidies, and guarantees
Despicable DeVos
As the first in my family to go to college, I firmly believe that every child should have the opportunity to pursue his or her dreams – and the prospect of massive student debt is an enormous and unacceptable barrier. But right now, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is making the problem even worse, wreaking havoc on student loan protections that help thousands of Americans who are drowning in debt. DeVos and the Trump administration have frozen the rules that allowed victims of fraud by for-profit schools to have their debt erased, and they've also proposed canceling the program that allows student loans to be forgiven after 10 years in a public service job. An attack on higher education is an attack on the American middle class. We must fight back against DeVos' unraveling of the American dream for millions of Americans. Chip in now to stand with me against DeVos' attacks on students! Bringing down the cost of higher education by allowing students to refinance, offering assistance
Lady Liberty is crying
Lady Liberty has shed many tears during this president's administration. Her sign may read, "give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses,” but the attacks on immigrants, religious minorities, and refugees are unprecedented. Donald Trump creates false enemies to incite fear and consolidate power. This week, Trump signed away the dreams of 800,000 young people who came here as young immigrants and have known no other country but our own. Dreamers were given a promise that their information would not be used against them, and that is a promise we must absolutely keep. I believe in our hard-working immigrant neighbors. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us. We must fight back against any authoritarian moves by this president—including his attempts to instill fear and hatred among Americans. Most of our families were immigrants to this country at one time. We must remember who we are and why Lady Liberty shines so brightly—because immigration is part of what truly m
