Don't give massive tax cuts to corporations and the wealthiest Americans by taking trillions from everyone else. Medicare, Medicaid, education, job programs, and all of the other great things that the government pays for deserve MORE funding from the richest Americans, not massive cuts that would pay for tax cuts for corporations and the superrich.

AARP needs to stop advertising on Sean Hannity's show

This week Keurig, 23 and Me, and other advertisers stopped advertising on Sean Hannity's Fox News show because they were so disgusted by his defense of Roy Moore's reprehensible sexual attacks on teenagers. AARP's continued support of Sean Hannity's conspiracies is normalizing his hateful, divisive platform.

Remove tax-exempt status from Roy Moore foundation for breaking the law

Foundation for Moral Law, headed by salaried Mrs. Roy Moore is using tax-exempt status illegally. Demand the IRS remove their status immediately. "In return for its favored tax-status, a charitable nonprofit promises the federal government that it will not engage in “political campaign activity” and if it does, IRS regulations mandate that the charitable nonprofit will lose its tax-exempt status." "The federal tax law is very strict on the issue of political campaigning: A 501(c)(3) organization is absolutely forbidden to directly or indirectly participate in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public...

Demand Fox News stop censoring anti-Trump views

The movement to impeach Donald Trump is growing -- and Trump and his allies are frantic. Fox News banned my "Need to Impeach" ad from their network. They are trying to silence the movement demanding Congress impeach Trump. Send Fox News a strong message: We will not allow you to silence us.

Stop GOP tax plan from eliminating graduate school for our children

Republicans propose that students pay taxes on the tuition the university pays itself for their education under university grant programs, making it impossible to get an MA or PhD for most middle and lower class students. This brain drain would give both Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump a lower tax rate than a graduate student at Princeton under the new proposed tax plan.

Support the Fix NICS 2017 Act to Keep Firearms Out of the Hands of Domestic Violence Perpetrators

There is a strong correlation between domestic violence and mass shootings – as evidenced by recent events. Looking at every identifiable mass shooting that has occurred between January 2009 and July 2014, 57 percent of them involved the killing of a family member, or a current or former intimate partner of the shooter (source: Everytown for Gun Safety). Entering domestic violence court records into the background check system is the best way to keep guns out of the hands of convicted abusers. On Nov. 16, U.S. Senators Cornyn, Murphy, Scott, Blumenthal, Hatch, Feinstein, Heller and Shaheen introduced the Fix NICS...

Keep Firearms Out Of the Hands Of Domestic Violence Perpetrators

The correlation between mass shootings and domestic violence is increasingly evident. The shooter in the Sutherland Springs, Texas church tragedy reportedly had a history of domestic violence including brutally assaulting his former wife and infant stepson and then abusing his wife two years later. Abused women are five times more likely to be killed if their abuser owns a firearm, and domestic violence assaults involving a gun are 12 times more likely to end in death than assaults with other weapons or physical harm. Domestic violence offenders commit more than a million acts of domestic violence each year, resulting in...

No Privatization of the Veterans Administration

The Right and their millionaire, billionaire cronies want to make one more power and money grab by privatization of Veterans benefits including the VA Medical system. The Right feels that every agency should be turned over to for profit "companies' to line their pockets even more and the VA system is one more cash cow that they are looking at. We already know what happens when care is for profit- people die and the people pay the price. All the while they sit on their gold thrones looking down on the little people and now those that fought to protect...

Nebraska: Reject Keystone-XL Route!

The Nebraska Public Service Commission must reject the TransCanada request to route the Keystone-XL pipeline through the farmlands, native nations, and beautiful natural scenery of Nebraska.

NO to chemical industry insider Michael Dourson leading EPA toxics office!

I urge you to oppose President Trump's nomination of Michael Dourson to lead the EPA's toxics office. Dourson has had a long career helping the chemical industry downplay concerns about their products. Someone with such extensive conflicts of interest does not belong at the EPA. Please stand up for the health of our families, and oppose this dangerous nomination.

Stop Famine in Yemen! This is a man-made famine.

Saudi Arabia, backed by US money and support has imposed a full blockade on Yemen. This is the deliberate starvation of all Yemenis and is a crime against humanity and a gross violation of international law. We demand immediate pressure on Saudi Arabia to remove their blockade and to stop all assaults on Yemen. We also demand immediate aid be given to humanitarian organizations for assistance to starving Yemenis.

Tell the National Park Service not to raise entrance fees!

The National Park Service is proposing a big increase in entrance fees for some of the country's most beloved wild places. In some cases, the cost to enter a park by vehicle would rise to $70 - from a current amount of $25 or $30. These changes would affect the most popular parks in the country, including Acadia, Grand Canyon, Olympic, Shenandoah, Yellowstone, and Yosemite. Tell the National Park Service not to raise entrance fees!

Stand with the Sick: Keep the Medical Deduction

Paul Ryan just held a news conference and with a straight face hailed his achievement in passing legislation that strips millions of chronically ill taxpayers of their itemized deduction for medical expenses. Laughably, he boasts of closing a loophole. Our only hope rests with the Senate -- please sign my petition and do whatever it takes to pressure them not to abandon the sick!

Help Save Social Security: Remove the Tax Cap

Right now, the Social Security system is in danger of collapse. One solution is to remove the current Social Security tax cap. At present, a billionaire pays the same amount of money into Social Security as someone who makes $118,500 per year. That's because there is a cap on taxable income that funds the Social Security system. This cap should be lifted to that everyone pays the same percentage of their income into Social Security.

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire

When the Tribune Company went up for sale, it was widely reported that the Koch brothers were interested in acquiring its newspapers - including the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune.
