Support Pro-Choice Democratic Women
43 years after Roe v. Wade secured the right to a safe, legal abortion, access to women’s health care is under extreme threat.
Now more than ever, voters need to elect pro-choice Democratic women who will fight for the reproductive rights of women across the country.
Since 2011, 320 state laws have been enacted restricting a woman’s ability to get an abortion, including 30 laws passed just this year...More
For the first time in American history, we have a national plan to limit the dangerous climate pollution spewing from our fossil fuel-fired power plants – the single largest source of carbon pollution in our nation and one of the largest in the world. We can’t let that slip away.
But dirty energy forces are fighting climate progress through a relentless series of legal attacks. We’re fighting hard to stop this latest senseless effort attacking EPA’s vital limits on climate pollution—...More
Ted Strickland is proud to support the Department of Labor’s new rule expanding overtime pay for the middle class. He knows that middle class Americans work hard for their pay, and it’s only fair that their paycheck should reflect this hard work.
The rule would extend overtime pay protections to 4.2 million workers and raise Americans’ wages by $1.2 billion a year. The rule goes a long way towards fairly compensating millions of Americans.
And no one would benefit more from...More
For Americans who are living paycheck-to-paycheck, working a job that doesn’t pay a fair wage, or facing crippling student debt, saving for retirement can seem like a fantasy — and that’s one of the reasons why our middle class is feeling squeezed.
It’s even worse when these same Americans are represented by D.C. insiders like Senator Rob Portman who want to raise the retirement age and slash earned benefits.
When you’re still working as a concrete finisher into your 60s,...More
Most Americans pay 6.20% of their incomes to Social Security taxes. But not so the wealthy. The Social Security tax applies only to the first $118,500 of income (the “cap”). As soon anyone reaches that limit, they’re done for the year.
LeBron James, for example, pays just 0.03% of his income toward Social Security taxes. In fact, he is finished paying his Social Security taxes in the second quarter of his first game of his season. Then he’s done for the rest of the game, and the rest...More
Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner for President, stated in an interview that he would support “some form of punishment” for women who have an abortion, were it outlawed.
This is not a statement to dismiss lightly, like most Donald Trump positions tend to be. This is a direct assault on women’s healthcare rights.
Stand with Senate Democrats in defending a woman’s right to make their own choices when it comes to their healthcare.

Sign if you agree: Women deserve equal pay
It’s 2016 and America still has a gender pay gap that isn’t shrinking fast enough. For full-time work, the average woman makes only 79 cents for every dollar a man makes.
It’s time to end this gender discrimination.
Now more than ever, we need to elect women to Congress who will fight for equal pay to support women and families across the country.
Over and over, we’ve...More
When Ebola struck last year, and scattered cases in the US caused panic, President Obama took decisive action to protect us by putting into place a program to fight inevitable future outbreaks by working to prevent them, and nip them in the bud.
But incredibly, Republicans want to remove this protection. They want to turn their back on the Ebola threat by removing $600 million dollars from the Ebola emergency fund.
The same Republicans who shamelessly exploited...More
We have to decide if we are the party of Elizabeth Warren and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau or predatory loan sharks. Sign our petition now to tell Debbie Wasserman Schultz to stop standing with these immoral payday lenders.
We know that the most vulnerable among us were hit the hardest during the 2008 financial crisis. Millions of people lost their jobs, their homes, and their bank accounts. That’s enough to make you sick to your stomach. But for many, it...More
Throughout his entire career, Beltway Rob Portman has been in the pocket of Washington special interests. During his twenty-five years in Washington, Portman has made it clear where his priorities lie – and they’re not in helping working Ohio families.
Twenty-five years in the club is long enough. Sign up to support Ted Strickland and working Ohioans.
Ohio deserves a Senator who puts Working Ohioans first – not someone whose face a financial lobbyist once said...More
