Political ads are flooding the airwaves in homes across the US. Because of Trump’s new dark money rule, the IRS won’t know whether the $$$ paying for those ads comes from lawbreaking special interest groups or foreigners.

My resolution with reverses Trump’s undemocratic agenda to empower shadowy groups looking to buy our elections. Opposition against our measure is an endorsement of Trump’s plan to rid our campaign finance system of transparency.

Attacking these women and jamming the Kavanaugh nomination through while these allegations of sexual misconduct mount would go down among the darkest moments in Senate history. Republicans still on the fence must decide if they want to be a part of it.

There’s a sea-change happening across the country with respect to the treatment of women and sexual misconduct. What’s happening with Kavanaugh’s nomination shows Republicans in Washington don’t get it – and are content ignoring it.

There’s no reason – other than a shameful desire to win at any cost – to rush this process, block an FBI investigation into these multiple allegations and force a Senate vote on Kavanaugh.

Calling for these women to be heard & for their allegations to be investigated isn’t a “smear campaign.” Even if you believe Kavanaugh, you should welcome a routine FBI background check! But Leader McConnell & the admin. are blocking it. Why don’t they want to get to the truth?

Multiple women have come forward with credible allegations of sexual misconduct by Brett Kavanaugh. Speaking out was a huge sacrifice of safety and privacy. Now they’re being called liars and attacked as if it’s all a political stunt.

Meanwhile, Big Pharma is trying to airdrop a bailout into an unrelated piece of legislation that would cost taxpayers billions AND increase seniors’ Medicare premiums. I’m fighting this effort to pad Big Pharma’s bottom line that would shift costs onto seniors.

Trump’s top health care official, , *never* lowered drug prices while he was a Big Pharma executive. Why would his former pharma colleagues start now? Trump's drug plan is all talk, no action.

It’s still “business as usual” for Big Pharma: jacking up prices every year, leaving families on the hook for higher and higher costs. Trump has failed to keep his promise to Americans.

The Trump admin is yet again combining racism, cruelty and economic self-harm in one policy to target seniors who count on Medicare for affordable prescriptions, caregivers in America’s nursing homes and daycares, and workers who contribute to every sector of the economy.

Immigrants do not take from this country, they add to it. The Trump administration is too blinded by racism to understand that.

Trump’s new policy harms rural areas with declining populations that are starved for residents who want to build a better life for their families and contribute to the community. This anti-immigrant policy will be a disaster.

Given the serious and credible assault allegations against him, the FBI MUST reopen Kavanaugh’s background investigation. Republicans’ plan to rush his nomination for a LIFETIME seat before a simple investigation has been conducted is a farce.

Foreign hackers are going after personal email accounts of elected officials and staff working to serve the American people. Congress needs to step up its defense against these attacks.

The fact that a pharma bailout is even being considered is outrageous. It would increase seniors' premiums, costs more than twice as much as what we're spending on opioids and gives pharma a windfall instead of lowering America's drug prices.

Big Pharma is trying to airdrop a multi-billion dollar bailout into a bill meant to tackle the opioid crisis. I'm fighting to stop this awful bailout in its tracks. ?
