the sick feeling in your gut

Chip in today -- let's make sure Republicans can't put a hurt on hard-working Americans.
American Possibilities
DianeA, I want you to take a little trip into the future. Are you with me?

Pretend it's Wednesday, November 7, 2018: the day after this year's midterm elections.

Now, pretend the headlines all say the Republicans held the House and the Senate.

That sick feeling you have in your gut right now? Believe me, that's nothing compared to the real hurt Republicans will put on hard-working Americans if we don't get the job done this fall.

We can't let it happen. And if our candidates have the resources they need to get our message out, we won't -- so chip in $3 right now and make sure Democrats can win this November.

Now, I'm not saying we're going to lose. But I learned a long time ago that you better run scared if you want to win.

Already this year, we've won elections in places Donald Trump swept in 2016. We've recruited good candidates up and down the ballot. I'd rather be in our shoes than theirs.

But we have to stay motivated; we better run scared. We won't win if we don't -- and here are three things we know will happen:
  1. As sure as I'm sending you this note, Republicans will try again to repeal Obamacare. It's never been about health care for them, but about undoing a huge accomplishment of President Obama's. They can't help themselves.
  2. They'll keep cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy -- and squeeze middle-class Americans who're just trying to save up enough cash to send their kid to college.
  3. And you'd better believe they'll come for Medicare, Social Security, and any other program that gives the working class a leg up.
Folks say it all the time, but in the last 18 months, we've really seen it come to life: Elections have consequences. We lost big in 2016, and we can't afford to lose again.

It's pretty simple, DianeA: Your gift helps elect Democrats. So chip in $3 today. Help me make sure Democrats in all 50 states have the resources they need to win:

If you've saved your payment information previously through Quick Donate, your donation will go through immediately.

Quick Donate: $25

Quick Donate: $50

Quick Donate: $100

Quick Donate: $250

Or donate another amount.

Let's get to work.

Add your name if you agree health care is a right

Pre-existing condition protections are at risk. Add your name to stand against Trump's latest attack.
DemocratsJoin us.
Last night, the Trump administration asked a federal judge to dismantle the provision that protects people with pre-existing conditions under Obamacare.

This shocking and morally reprehensible move is yet another attempt to dismantle critical health coverage for those who need it most. This kind of health care sabotage is unprecedented, and we won't let them get away with it.

Democrats believe health care is a right, not a privilege. Add your name if you agree and stand against the Trump administration in their latest effort to destroy Obamacare.

I'M IN

No one should be discriminated against just because they're sick or require specific care. That's why President Obama and Democrats enacted historic protections for people with pre-existing conditions and prevented insurance companies from charging people higher rates because of their health status.

The American people overwhelmingly support these provisions -- it's why millions of us came together last year to defend our health care when this GOP-led Congress tried to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.

If Donald Trump and Republicans get their way, millions of Americans will be at risk of losing their health coverage. The people who will suffer most are those who depend on comprehensive, quality care more than anyone else.

Like most Americans, Democrats believe health care is a right for all, not a privilege for the wealthy few -- and we don't believe that an insurer should be able to discriminate against you because of a pre-existing condition. There has never been a more important time to show where we stand.

Add your name right now against the Trump administration's latest attack on Obamacare and say you support health care for all.

Together we will fight back by voting Republicans out of office for their senseless attacks on families all across this country. Thank you for being a part of that effort.

Thanks,

Xochitl

Xochitl Hinojosa
Communications Director
Democratic National Committee

P.S. Just so you know how cynical these people are, the Trump administration asked the court to repeal the pre-existing health care protection, but to wait until after the election. They know this is a hugely unpopular move -- they're just hoping they can sneak it by the American people. Add your name now to show you won't let them.

How we'll end gerrymandering:

Every vote should matter. Right now, it doesn't. Let's end gerrymandering and fix that.
Organizing for Action
Diane --

Here's an understatement: Our politics can be polarizing.

But everywhere I've gone in this country, from Massachusetts to Ohio to Oklahoma to California, there's one thing I have never heard someone disagree with:

Every single vote should matter.

Right now, it doesn't.

That's the hard truth, thanks to discriminatory voter ID laws, early voting restrictions, disenfranchisement of felons, and -- here's a big one -- partisan gerrymandering.

Gerrymandering is at the heart of so many of our problems.

It's why people feel like their vote doesn't always count. It's why politicians feel like they don't have to be accountable to their constituents.

And it's why sometimes our elections don't really reflect the will of our voters.

It's time for those days to end. I'm standing up with OFA, former Attorney General Eric Holder's national redistricting team, and other organizations across the country who are demanding fairer districts -- and you should, too.

This work won't be easy or glamorous.

It'll happen in state legislatures and on local ballot initiatives, and in living rooms across the country -- as people like you become local leaders, and talk to friends and neighbors about how important this fight is.

But if we pay attention, if we really dig in, we can fix this. We can change our own districts, and then our states, and then our country.

In many places, we already are. Three weeks ago, Ohio voters overwhelmingly voted to end gerrymandering in their state. Meanwhile, judges in Pennsylvania and North Carolina recently confirmed what we already knew: Partisan rigging of districts is unconstitutional.

We know we can keep up the progress - and we have great leaders like President Obama, Eric Holder, Nancy Pelosi, and Terry McAuliffe taking the lead on this. But we'll need every progressive voice we have to win.

No matter what state you live in, I promise you: There's something you can do to help. Get trained. Talk to a friend. Take up a ballot initiative. Volunteer remotely.

For now, join OFA's team -- and they'll plug you into ways you can get involved at the local and national level leading up to November:

I'm in

Thank you,

Sen. Elizabeth Warren

Civility

It's up to us to speak out for compassion and civility. It's up to us to create a better culture and elect officials who reflect those values.
Organizing for Action
Diane --

President Obama often says that "if you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress."

It's not always easy. It's far from guaranteed that you will be able to make as much progress as you want. There are days when we're reminded so clearly that we have not yet reached our destination, and that is why we have to work every day to treat our fellow citizens with dignity and civility.

The culture that we're creating and the interactions we have with our fellow citizens each day are influenced by those who we elect to represent us.

When we elect people that continually demean others -- those of another race, or religion, or gender, or identity, or sexual orientation -- and reach for an America in the past instead of one in the future, the results hurt us all.

That's not who we are -- and we can't ever stop saying so.

We have a responsibility to demand better of our elected officials. We have a responsibility to vote in 2018.

Voting isn't a magic and immediate solution to every problem we face.

Fixing this will take a willingness to listen and respect one another. It will take a level of empathy towards people who have different opinions than our own, and an effort to understand why they ended up feeling the way they do.

But here's where we can start: At the ballot box.

Who we lift up to represent us speaks volumes about whether we treat each other with compassion and civility -- and it's time to demand better.

Our government will be as good as we make it. Say you'll vote in 2018:

I will vote

Thank you,

Valerie Jarrett
Former Senior Advisor to President Obama

Paris

I still believe in our ability to lead the fight against climate change. But 2018 will play a huge role in our progress -- say you'll work with OFA today.
Organizing for Action
Diane --

In late 2015, members of the Obama administration joined leaders from all over the globe in Paris -- coming to a landmark climate change agreement that committed nearly every country on earth to protect the world we'll leave to our children.

We saw it as a day that historians would remember -- a moment when we acknowledged that we are all truly in this together, and collectively, decided to save our health and our climate.

And even though, one year ago today, this administration announced a short-sighted plan to leave the agreement, I'm more confident than ever that we were right.

The Paris Agreement solidified what we'd already known: This fight isn't just about saving polar bears, or removing plastic bottles from the ocean.

It's about giving our kids the opportunity for a healthy, sustainable world.

We've already made big progress. The clean energy industry we worked so hard to foster has taken off. Cities, states, businesses, and citizens across the country have stepped up as leaders in our fight against climate change.

It's on all of us to keep going. That's why, today, I'm proud to help OFA keep growing its Organizing for '18 program.

The actions we take in 2018 -- what we lend our time to, who we support, whether we vote -- will decide whether we turn the tide. Join Team '18 today, and work to elect officials who believe in our fight against climate change.

Cities like Pittsburgh, which last year introduced a comprehensive climate plan that adheres to the Paris Agreement's goals, are leading the way. So are American businesses who support for the agreement, and continue to work towards it.

They're not just doing this out of the goodness of their hearts.

They're doing it because it makes sense. Shifting away from dirty fossil fuels that cause climate change can slow the increase in more devastating hurricanes and wildfires, asthma attacks in children, and the hundreds of billions of dollars in disaster recovery and health costs that come along with them.

On top of that, our move towards a low-carbon, clean energy future makes America and our businesses more competitive. It creates new, high-paying jobs. It builds new industries that will fuel our growth.

That is the future we can create for our children -- and it's already here.

But we need leaders who will strive towards it. Citizens who will talk about it. Elected officials who will acknowledge it, and vote for common-sense solutions.

Our work continues right now. Join Team '18 today, and work to elect leaders who believe climate change is a fight we must take on:

I'm in

Thank you,

Gina McCarthy
Former Administrator of the EPA

The whole truth:

Let's support candidates who will fight to give millions of families some peace of mind.
American Possibilities

DianeA,

The Republican Party spent most of the past 18 months trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

After too many shameful votes in Congress, multiple attempts to declare victory for having undone an Obama accomplishment, and countless presidential tweets on the topic, we're starting to see the real human effects of this cold-hearted recklessness:

The number of working-age Americans without health insurance has gone up by 3 percent in the past two years. And in the 19 states that have still neglected to expand their Medicaid programs, that number has gone up by nearly 6 percent since 2016.

Since the new administration took office, we've seen 4 million more Americans move into the ranks of the uninsured.

Actions have consequences. Who we elect matters. And in six months, we have a choice: We can elect more people who will vote with a political agenda in mind, or we can choose a set of leaders who will prioritize the well-being of their constituents.

DianeA, you and I can elect leaders who are thinking about the things front of mind for most voters: Whether they can pay for their kids' treatments. Whether they can afford to feed their families while paying for care.

Let's be clear about the real reason millions more uninsured Americans are suffering today: Republicans wanted to undo President Obama's greatest accomplishment. That's the whole truth.

The Affordable Care Act was never perfect, and President Obama would be the first to say so. But on the whole, it was a giant step toward progress, and Republicans don't get to hide behind a set of petty complaints and fixable shortcomings while actively voting to sabotage the law.

Let's support candidates who will fight to give millions of families the peace of mind that comes with health coverage.

And together, we'll help make it clear, once and for all, that in America, health care is a right for all, not a privilege for the wealthy.

-Joe
