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 ...

Like White Walkers from the Game of Thrones...
Like the armored and mummified White Walkers from Game of Thrones, Trumpcare is hard to kill. Republicans continue reanimating their terrible bill to kick millions of Americans off of their health care. First, they put forward a mirror image of the House Trumpcare bill that would have cost 22 million people their coverage. The American people rebelled and Mitch McConnell had to pull it. Then they brought it back with Ted Cruz's awful "fake insurance" provision, but you raised a ruckus and that one went down. Finally, Trump and McConnell proposed repealing the Affordable Care Act with no replacement of any kind - which would cause premiums to jump by 25 percent in the first year and take away insurance from 32 million people by 2026. It's supposed to get a vote next week. No matter how many times Republicans try a new way to rip health care away from us, we continue speaking up, standing up, and fighting this bill. We won’t stop until this mortally wounded bill is fully dead. Chip in
This victory is your victory!
You who made calls. You who marched. You who shared your story. You who would not be silent. You stopped the latest Republican attempt to dismantle our health care. This victory is your victory, and I’m glad you’re with us. But while last night’s win was a big win—thanks to 48 Democrats, 3 courageous Republicans, and you—we must stay alert. The GOP has been undermining our health care for years. Donald Trump has made clear that he wants an insurance crisis while he sabotages the Affordable Care Act. I’m going to keep fighting to improve our health care by making it more accessible and affordable through single payer—and keep standing strong against every effort to take us backward. Are you with me? Onward! Jeff
Sen. Mitch McConnell is planning to force a vote on repealing and replacing the ACA, and I’m going ALL IN to fight it. McConnell calls this a “skinny repeal,” meaning only 15 million people will lose their insurance when they eliminate the individual requirement to sign up for the Affordable Care Act. Only 15 million! Even that will cause insurance rates to skyrocket and premiums to go up an average of $1,200, as younger and healthier people drop their insurance. I’ve introduced more than 100 amendments to stand up for our health care. My colleagues have introduced hundreds more. While every family will suffer from their disastrous plan, these amendments will force Republicans to acknowledge the devastating impacts repealing the ACA will have on some of the most vulnerable Americans, including: Veterans who could face rising premiums Pregnant women who may lose maternity coverage Kids with cancer who could be denied life-saving care People with disabilities who rely on Med
Why the military is preparing for climate disruption
Rising tides threaten homes and communities in coastal regions. Catastrophic storms wreak havoc and kill thousands. Drought endangers food sources, leading to refugees and mass migration. Carbon pollution and dirty energy jeopardize the health and safety of everyone on our planet. These are among the national security threats that climate change causes all over the world. Our military has known about and planned for security threats caused by climate disruption for more than a decade. Yet still some members of our Republican-led Congress and the president have their heads in the sand, actually exacerbating the dangers ahead from a warming world. We must support solutions to climate disruption now, including my bill to ensure 100 percent renewable energy for America by 2050. Chip in to protect our national security by fighting climate change! When Donald Trump announced he was pulling the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Agreement, not only did he threaten our relationships with western a
