Lost in all the news from last week, Donald Trump vetoed a joint congressional resolution that would end U.S. support for Saudi warcrimes against the Yemeni people authored by Senator Bernie Sanders in the Senate and Representative Ro Khanna in the House.

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) supported this effort to reassert Congressional constitutional authority over war and peace, and especially to end the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. Please click here to tell Congress to override Trump’s veto.

PDA was there for Bernie’s introduction of his Medicare For All Act (S. 1129), and we’ve been working for #MedicareForAll ever since our founding in 2004. We’re mobilizing with a powerful coalition to gain support for Medicare For All—both Bernie’s Senate Medicare For All Act, and the House legislation introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep. Debbie Dingell.

Please click here to become a Grassroots Co-Sponsor of Medicare for All! Also, help us gain more cosponsors for the Senate bill. Click here to tell your Senators to cosponsor Bernie’s MFA bill.

The Trumpublicans are busy rolling back life-saving protections for workers, consumers, investors and the environment. It’s virtually impossible to keep track of all the ways the reckless, incompetent, selfish, and corrupt right wingers keep harming us all. As PDA staffer Debra Schrishuhn writes:

Amid all the furor about the Mueller report release, Trump declared no more disaster aid (other than food assistance) should go to Puerto Rico, still devastated from Hurricane Maria in 2017.

This position caused a $13 billion disaster aid bill to stall in the Senate, affecting Americans from, yes, Puerto Rico, to Alabama to New England to California.

Republicans then blocked the $14 billion disaster aid bill passed by the House in January. And the Atlantic hurricane season starts in 42 days.

Please take action now! Click here to tell Congress to help the people of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
