Tell Congress: Puerto Ricans need government help now

Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico nearly three months ago, and hundreds of thousands of people still don't have power to turn on a light, stock a refrigerator, or take a hot shower. Thousands of homes are destroyed, rural areas are still isolated, small businesses are not operating, and there's an ever-increasing migration of Puerto Ricans to the U.S. mainland. It's clear that the federal government's response to the disaster in Puerto Rico has been painfully slow and not commensurate with the hurricane response in Texas and Florida. The people of Puerto Rico need help now—it's part of the United States...

Tell Mitch McConnell to seat Doug Jones now

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he wants to "let the people of Alabama make the call" about who our next senator will be. The people have spoken, and we want Doug Jones to step into his rightful role as elected senator from Alabama so he can vote on the pending tax bill which could give cuts to the wealthy at the expense of the middle class and poor. Tell Mitch McConnell there should not be a tax vote until Doug Jones is seated. The people deserve a voice.

Yes on Net Neutrality!

Internet providers should not have the power to slow down what we want to watch just because they do not profit from it. We pay for the same speed to all sites on the Internet!

Sign now: Demand Congress rein in drug prices, not reward the greedy Pharma Big 10

Between 2011 and 2015, the country’s 10 biggest drug companies raised the prices charged to consumers, Medicare and Medicaid, for 31 of their most widely-prescribed drugs by an average of 40% to 70%. During that same time, their untaxed offshore profits soared by two-thirds to $500 billion. The tax bills now before Congress will give drug companies a huge $80 billion tax cut on those offshore profits. That’s wrong! Instead of handing the Pharma Big 10 a massive tax break, Congress should rein in drug prices and make sure drug companies pay their fair share of taxes.

Stop the tax increase on military families

The Trump middle class tax increase will hit active duty military and their families particularly hard. Congress must ensure that taxes are not raised on those who have volunteered to risk their lives in the service of our country.

Tell Trump to Protect Your Marine Monuments!

Mr. President: Papahānaumokuākea, the Pacific Remote Islands, Rose Atoll, and the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monuments are each critical hotspots for corals, fish, seabirds, marine mammals, and sea turtles. These areas support the resiliency of our oceans in the face of ongoing degradation and climate change. Each site has well-thought-out and scientifically supported boundaries. Their boundaries enclose islands, reefs, deep ocean and seamounts that work together in balanced ecosystems supporting seabirds, apex predators like tuna and sharks, and thousands of other important marine species. Each monument has a science based management plan that prohibits commercial fishing and other...

Net Neutrality: CA State-Wide Internet Service Provider

Californians are appalled by the FCC's move to eliminate net neutrality. In response, the CA legislature should create a CA state-run internet service which they would run at cost. This would improve net speeds, lower costs, expand access, and deal telecom companies a massive financial blow for having sought to eliminate internet freedom.

Save the Dreamers!

Please make Christmas real for Dreamers. Don't make them wait in fear over the holidays. Use your power to pass a clean Dream Act that would allow them to stay in the only home they know.

Sign the petition re: $72,781,300,000 for the 1%

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.

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.
