Give people their paychecks.

It’s another day in Trump’s America—and another day to stand up for what’s right. Get the facts to fight back.

Tomorrow, the Senate will finally have a chance to reopen the government without any more games and without funding for President Trump’s wall.

There will be two votes in the Senate tomorrow. One is on Trump’s sham deal—an offensive proposal with $5.7 billion for wall funding and radical restrictions for asylum seekers and children.

The other bill would fund the government for 3 weeks, providing relief for the 800,000 federal workers who are about to miss a second paycheck.

  • Federal workers and contractors are suffering. Two missed paychecks in, workers are missing mortgage and car payments, having trouble putting food on the table, and being forced to work despite not being paid.
