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 ...

Damage that can't be undone
The Koch brothers and other fossil fuel barons have been waiting for this day a long time. With extreme anti-environment voices in power, Congressional Republicans are rushing to push through a massive giveaway to Big Oil by opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to drilling. If they have their way, the damage to one of America's most pristine wilderness areas, wildlife, and Native communities could be massive and irreversible. Sign my petition right now: tell Congress to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Where we see one of the country's most beautiful and sacred places, Big Oil sees dollar signs. Where we see caribou and polar bears, Big Oil sees oil derricks. The Republican plan is to do this quickly by slipping ANWR drilling into the massive tax cut bill currently being debated in Congress. They hope that people won't notice their tremendous and terrible giveaway to Big Oil. Let's show Republicans and Big Oil how wrong they are: join me, progressive member

Can't stop winning. Won't stop winning!
Voters proved this week that the best way to resist the divisive agenda of Donald Trump is to VOTE. Democrats and independents turned out in droves for candidates who stood for jobs, education, and health care and a vision of an indivisible America that draws people together rather than pushing us apart. Virginia voters stood with Democrat Ralph Northam for Governor against the harsh attacks on immigrants. New Jersey voters stood with Democrat Phil Murphy for Governor, who pledged to restore Planned Parenthood funding and tackle climate disruption. Washington state voters stood with Democrat Manka Dhingra for state Senate and flipped the state's Legislature blue. Openly transgender candidates won in Virginia and Minnesota, Maine voted to expand Medicaid, seven (!) cities elected their first Black mayor, and so much more. But we can't stop now—we must grow our movement for 2018 and support candidates who stand for progressive priorities like clean and renewable energy, Medic
Trump's putting mega-corporations before seniors. I won't have it.
Hardworking Americans deserve to retire with dignity. Yet, the Republican tax plan slashes retirement programs like Medicare by $500 billion, all so they can give more handouts to billionaires and mega-wealthy corporations. More than 10,000 seniors become eligible for Medicare every day – and it's up to us to protect their earned benefits like Medicare and Social Security. I'm fighting back. We must fund our world-class schools, upgrade our roads and bridges, and keep the promise of Medicare and Social Security for our seniors – not give giant breaks to millionaires, billionaires, and corporations. Not one penny! The Republican tax bill is a bank heist like we've never seen before. Thanks to your calls, petitions, emails, and rallies, we stopped their diabolical plan to slash people's health care. Now we need to do it again – and this Indivisible Action Plan can help you stop them. We must stop their plan to kick seniors to the curb and fight this tax bill with all we've got. I
