Trump has no idea how working Americans live

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

“This president has no idea how we live paycheck to paycheck.”

As a single mom, programs like Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security helped Heidi build a better life for her daughter.

Trump promised not to defund any of these programs. He lied, and because of his budget cuts, other Americans may not get the same chance to make better lives for their own families.

Share Heidi’s story on Facebook and Twitter to spread her message: Trump broke his promise, and Americans like Heidi will pay the price.

House Democrats stood up for Dreamers. Your move, Senator McConnell.

Last night, House Democrats and seven House Republicans voted to protect 2.5 million Dreamers and other immigrants from Trump’s immigration attacks.

By passing the American Dream and Promise Act of 2019, House Democrats sent a message to Senate Majority Leader McConnell and their Republican colleagues in the Senate: We’ve done our job. It’s time to do yours.

Republican senators have publicly pledged their support for Dreamers:

  • “These children were brought here at no fault of their own. Uncertainty brings fear to my constituents in this position.”—Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ)
  • “Children who came to this country without documentation, through no fault of their own, must have the opportunity to remain here lawfully.” —Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO)
  • “Republicans and Democrats alike both want to provide certainty to these DACA recipients.” —Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX)

Will they demand that McConnell allow them a chance to keep their word?

The American people overwhelmingly support legal protections for Dreamers and other eligible immigrants. Now, it’s up to Senate Republicans to force McConnell to allow a vote on H.R. 6 in the Senate. Send a message to your senators by sharing this tweet:
