The final verdict.

The last real wage numbers before November came out this morning. As corporate profits continued to skyrocket thanks to the #GOPTaxScam, wages remained flat. The final verdict on the Trump economy is in: Corrupt. HEALTH CARE IS PERSONAL: AMANDA’S AND SUSAN’S STORIES Minnesotan Amanda Magsam can walk today thanks to the ACA. Her Republican member...

Almost every sentence was a lie.

In a laughably false op-ed in USA Today this morning, President Donald Trump attacked Medicare for All and baselessly attacked Democrats in a transparent appeal to his base. The Washington Post fact-checked the piece and found that “almost every sentence contained a misleading statement or falsehood.” Read the fact-check here. Some quick lowlights: Trump claims...

While we were fighting Kavanaugh.

On Saturday, despite massive opposition, credible allegations of sexual assault, and an outcry from much of the nation, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Despite this disturbing outcome, we are more committed than ever to supporting sexual assault survivors around the country, and we are endlessly inspired by all of you who took...

Stand up to the cover-up.

The FBI completed its investigation into sexual assault allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. It’s everything the White House and Senate Republicans wanted—and less.

Will they hold to that standard with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh? Senator Jeff Flake said the nomination is over if the FBI probe finds that Kavanaugh lied. President Trump today said “I don’t think...

“You can’t lie your way onto the Supreme Court.”

Last week, Judge Kavanaugh showed us who he really is: angry, partisan, and unfit. But, even more than that, Kavanaugh showed us that he is a liar. Multiple new articles detail Kavanaugh’s repeated lies to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The New York Times detailed some of the false and misleading statements Kavanaugh gave during his...

Voices that made a difference.

This morning—after announcing his intention to vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh—Senator Jeff Flake stood silently in an elevator and was forced to listen as two brave survivors shared their harrowing stories. They begged him not to vote for Brett Kavanaugh. [Warning: the link contains sensitive content.] Thanks in large part to those...

A lesson for America.

Even as the #MeToo movement has cast light on the permeation of sexual assault and harassment into every part of our society, a backlash of skepticism has been rotting just below the surface. We saw examples of that refusal to believe survivors—and even hateful attacks toward them—from Republicans in Congress and their allies, in a...
