Bayer and Monsanto?! This mega-merger is a BIG deal: combining these two corporate giants gives them enormous market share in GMO seeds, pesticides and more.
This proposal follows a troubling trend of giant agriculture company mergers — leaving just a few companies in control over the building blocks of our food system.
This consolidated market will leave farmers with fewer options and higher prices, and will result in fewer real options for us in the grocery store.
Donald Trump has recently released a maternity leave plan as part of his cynical rebranding. But Democrats know the truth – that these are empty words from a man who once called pregnant employees “an inconvenience.”

2 out of every 5 barrels of oil consumed in the U.S. are dedicated to one thing: powering our cars and passenger trucks. We're working to cut that—but we need your help. The E.P.A. and the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration together finalized new national climate and fuel efficiency standards in 2012, which would double the average fuel economy of our cars and trucks by 2025.
Now, these regulations are up for review. These standards have...More

Answer Bernie’s call and sign up to help us elect a Democratic Senate in November.
Right now, our progressive platform is in danger. The GOP is fighting hard to make sure that Donald Trump becomes president and can work with a Republican Senate.
The Grand Canyon: it is one of America’s greatest treasures. Countless families make the trek every year to marvel at the beauty of nature, its power, and its magnitude. Now, big businesses and anti-environmentalists are looking to intrude upon and pollute the Grand Canyon all in the name of profit.
