First President Trump said he would come after them, now Paul Ryan is willing to pull campaign funds and threaten his Members seats to gain a vote on his bill. Take a hint - pull your bill. #DesperateMuch
Today, Paul Ryan and Donald Trump are working to strip 24 million people of their healthcare and defund Planned Parenthood, endangering lives to score political points. Let's reject their shameless and dangerous political scam. Healthcare should never be a privilege based on wealth or gender. It's a basic. human. right.
What makes this world a beautiful place is our diversity, our different traditions and cultures which we can share with one another. Reflecting this morning on these beautiful photos of celebrations this year across the globe. Nowruz Mubarak!
NOT TO BE MISSED: 24 million people could be stripped of their healthcare, Planned Parenthood could lose all federal funding, and Medicaid as we know it could be gutted. And that's all happening THIS THURSDAY.

Some dream of making this world a better place by striking out injustices, standing up for what's right, creating beautiful expressions of art, developing a vaccine to save lives. Speaker Ryan dreams of taking away people's healthcare.
Investing in our children's futures is the smartest thing we can do as a country. It's good for our communities, our economy, and our society as a whole. Apparently President Trump can't get that through his thick head.
Preet Bharara was investigating Price's investments and potential conflicts of interest. Seems he was the one of the only people associated with the Trump administration that was ACTUALLY working to #DrainTheSwamp and surprise, surprise... he was booted out.
I launched Digital Democracy because I believe our government needs more transparency. We need to rebuild trust between voters and their elected officials. Every citizen in our democracy deserves to know if their elected officials are representing their best interests. Check out our site to learn more, and see what your elected officials are up to. Think of it like C-SPAN meets YouTube :)
OMB Director called climate change research a waste of money. Climate change affects our health, how we interact with each other, what we eat, where we live and what animals and plants can survive and thrive. Please, tell me how this research is a "waste of money."
