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 ...

Sign the petition: Protect our rural health care!
I was born in the heart of Oregon’s timber country—and to this day, I still hold a town hall in each of Oregon’s counties each year, because people from rural communities deserve to have their voices heard. The Republican effort to decimate our health care would dismantle rural communities’ access to care. I am fighting for better access to affordable health care for people of all communities. Rural health clinics could close if the Republican health care plan passes, putting local economies at risk and forcing sick residents to travel hundreds of miles for care. Sign my petition: Tell the Senate to protect rural communities’ health care! I've been traveling across some of the most remote—and reddest—parts of Oregon and have heard it myself. The farmers, ranchers, teachers, small businesspeople, and retirees coming to my town halls are worried. After all, about one in three rural Americans, and nearly all residents of some rural nursing homes, are insured by Medicaid. Peo
Stop the Koch brothers' attacks
$400 million. That’s how much the Koch brothers plan to spend before Election Day in 2018—all so they can gut Medicaid, further rig the tax code, and promote their dirty energy profits at the expense of our planet. We must act now. To win back the Senate and fight for our progressive values, we must defend strong Democrats and elect even more across the country. Tonight is a major fundraising deadline. Your contribution will help me lead the fight to win Senate seats the Koch brothers and other special interests are targeting. Will you join me to fight back against the Koch brothers’ attacks on our values? Yes! I’ll chip in now to defend progressive Senators against the Koch brothers’ attacks! I'm glad you're with me. Jeff
It's working, Friend!
Your calls, your emails, and your petitions are working—let’s keep it up! Senate Republican leaders announced today that they are delaying their vote to dismantle our health care until after the July 4 recess. They don’t have the support to pass the bill. Our resistance is working. Chip in $3 now to keep up our fight to stop Trumpcare! They need 50 votes to pass their plan to kick kids, seniors, and people with disabilities off of health insurance and give a huge tax cut to their wealthiest friends. But Republicans are floundering, all thanks to your efforts to stand up and say NO to their dangerous plans. Let’s keep up the resistance. We can’t stop now. They want us to declare victory and let off the gas so they can push through this attack on our health care in a few weeks. Let them know that we won’t stop fighting until this “wealth care” bill is thrown on the trash heap of history. Chip in $3 now to keep up the fight! Onward!
What Rush Limbaugh said about me:
When Rush Limbaugh thinks you’re wrong, you must be doing something right. On CNN, I said that Ted Cruz’s awful amendment to the Republican health care plan is a pathway to fake health insurance. His amendment completely dismantles essential benefits—allowing insurance companies to offer plans that don’t include maternity care, cancer coverage, diabetes coverage, and more. What kind of health plan is left when nothing is covered? That's fake insurance. Limbaugh attacked me, saying, “it’s a crock,” and “they’re just making stuff up”—even as he actively defended eliminating essential health benefits like maternity care and mental health care. But I know we can do better than their right-wing wealth care plan that takes away health care from millions of Americans. As I told CNN, single payer is the answer to how we make health care more fair, more affordable, and less confusing—not the Republican plan to offer less insurance, more anxiety, and needless tax cuts for
