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 my petition to stop Trump's Supreme Court nominee!
Big news: Donald Trump has nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, a man described by the New York Times as "a reliably conservative figure in the Scalia tradition." Nominating a right-wing judge to the seat that was stolen from President Obama in a brazen attempt to pack the court is enormously damaging to the integrity of the Supreme Court. If this tactic succeeds, it will set a dangerous new precedent and I'm determined to resist it. I will filibuster this illegitimate nomination. Sign my petition and tell the Senate: Oppose Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court. Jeff
Sign the Petition: Reject Polluting Pruitt!
President Trump’s nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency is Scott Pruitt – a man who described himself as a “leading advocate against the EPA’s agenda.” It doesn’t get much worse than this, and I’m counting on you to take action: Add your name right now to tell the U.S. Senate to reject Polluting Pruitt’s nomination! If confirmed by the Senate, Pruitt do what he's done as Oklahoma's Attorney General: use his position to do the bidding of big corporations and undo decades of progress on protecting our air and water. Pruitt questions the reality of climate change and has built a career shielding corporate polluters from accountability – even when they poison the clean air and water that our kids and communities count on. It's so bad, that he once took an oil company's complaint about environmental protections, copied it virtually word-for-word onto his letterhead as Attorney General, and sent it to EPA as the position of
Outraged. This is not America.
I am outraged by Donald Trump's executive order barring refugees, immigrants, and even legal permanent residents.    Slamming our doors shut and building walls is an affront to our American values and a danger to our security.     America has been a beacon of hope to the world precisely because we celebrate ethnic and religious diversity. We have not always succeeded, but we have always aspired to meet our ideals.    Donald Trump's dark vision does not reflect the American people, and sends the wrong message to the world.    I stand with everyone affected, especially our Muslim brothers and sisters.    We are and must always be better than this. 
Trump's Supreme Court Pick
This week, President Trump is expected to announce his pick for the Supreme Court. This is the seat that Mitch McConnell and team have stolen from President Obama. I won't be complicit in this theft.There is only one person in America who is a legitimate selection: Judge Merrick Garland.Sign my petition and tell the Senate to oppose any other nomination from Donald Trump to the Supreme Court. This scheme to pack the court began nearly a year ago by refusing to even hold a hearing on President Obama's nominee. We need to fight this Constitution-shredding gambit with everything we've got. Think about what is at stake: legal abortion, marriage equality, voting rights, the dark money corruption of our "We the People" government, and so much more. Our democracy and our values are under threat.  Join the resistance. We must not let this court-packing scheme work. Sign my petition, and let's fight together.
