Bigger than Watergate

Your voice is powerful. Add your name if you believe Congress should fully investigate Russia’s involvement with Trump:

Donald Trump repeatedly raised eyebrows for his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

One of Trump’s top National Security Advisors was caught lying about secret calls with Russia. Federal investigators have uncovered several top Trump aides had frequent communications with top Russian officials. 

U.S. intelligence officials believe Putin was personally involved in the Russian hacks into our democracy.

Trump encouraged espionage against our own people and country.

Now is the time to put country before politics. This is deeply troubling -- regardless if you’re a Democrat, Republican or Independent. Our national security is at stake.

We must take action immediately. Will you add your name to demand a full investigation Russia’s involvement with Trump:

After you sign, there is a call script to demand an investigation from our Republican senators. 

It’s Valentine’s Day and we’re calling on Republican care for a heart. Don’t leave Americans to die by ripping away the Affordable Care Act.

Since the Affordable Care Act was enacted, over 20 million previously uninsured Americans have gained health insurance. If the Republicans follow through with gutting the ACA, over 900,000 Texans could lose their care, including 153,000 Texans battling substance use disorder.

If you believe every American must have the right to a family doctor -- not just the wealthy few, keep tweeting, calling, faxing, and emailing Ted Cruz and John Cornyn. It is on us to save healthcare:

Over 900,000 Texans, including 153,000 Texans battling substance use disorder, could lose their care. Please do not take away our health care. I urge your senator to do what is right. A vote to repeal the ACA is a vote for Texans to die.”

re: Betsy DeVos

Never forget your voice is powerful. Betsy DeVos may have just been confirmed as the next education secretary, but you forced an unprecedented tie vote.

Now, we must use our voices and our power to elect more Democrats to school boards to stop the Trump Republican agenda. We are driving real change in local communities across our great state because of you.

We will toss Trump Republicans out of power in our cities, suburbs, and towns. We will never stop fighting for our children to have a fair shot and a good education.

But we need your support to get our Democratic champions elected.

Our candidate services team is working overtime to make sure Democrats in the May municipal races have the tools they need to unseat Trump Republicans in school board and city council races.

Your donations power our local candidate trainings, provide 1-on-1 guidance on campaign strategy for local candidates and develop sophisticated voter turnout models, so our local progressive champions win. We need you now more than ever. Will you chip in $25 to support our candidate services programs?

The Senate vote on Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary is imminent. She is completely unqualified for the job and would destroy our neighborhood public schools. Your voice can change the vote to NO on Betsy DeVos.

If you believe in quality education for all people and rejecting big money influence in politics, keep tweeting, calling, and emailing Ted Cruz and John Cornyn.

Abbott's Mess

Republican Gov. Greg Abbott is about to give his State of the State. One thing we won't hear from him, the Texas economy has sunk from 3rd in the nation to 21st under his watch.

Instead of fighting for hard working Texans and fixing his mess, Abbott cowers to Trump Republicans and their full-fledged assault on our families:

  1. In his first hours, Trump ripped away our families’ fair shot at the American dream and nabbed thousands of dollars from the pockets of working families looking to own a home.
     
  2. Republican Dan Patrick’s budget will raise your property taxes. His warpath to destroy our children’s education and family's healthcare means our families foot the bill.
     
  3. Trump announced a 20% tax that Americans will pay on Mexican goods to pay for his un-American border wall. Texas would be hit the hardest by this foolish Trump Tax. Jobs are at risk. Americans will get stuck paying more for groceries and everyday items.
     
  4. Trump Republicans are trying to rip our families apart with Trump’s Muslim Ban and Dan Patrick’s bill to draft Trump's deportation force.
     
  5. If that wasn’t enough, Republicans wants Texas’ economy to take another $8.5 billion dollar hit and 185,000 job loss because of their obsession with bathrooms.

In contrast, the Texas Democratic agenda is simple: a fair shot for all. We’re making sure the traffic lights run on time, your children go to quality neighborhood schools, and our economy works for everybody.

We will block Trump Republicans from hurting our families and our economy at every turn. Americans are rising up, and we have the opportunity of a lifetime to take back our state.

But, we need you.

Today is our first critical end-of-month deadline of the 2018 cycle. When you donate, you’re not only standing with us against Trump’s hate -- you're giving our team the absolutely crucial resources we need to train, organize, and elect more Democrats at every level.

I’m asking you: Will you do everything you can? Chip in $7 right now:
