Keep it Moving

The election results are in. We made our decisions on candidates and issues. Now, we're ready to get to work, with all willing parties, to strengthen the economy, expand the Middle Class and move America forward.

That starts now.

The first item of business is making sure that we don’t roll back critical programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. As our Members of Congress head to Washington to wrap up business this month, let’s send a strong message that we need more economic security, not less. We don’t need any “grand bargain” that cuts our Social Security benefits, raises the retirement age for Social Security and Medicare and cuts Medicaid, a program that many of our loved ones rely upon. And, we certainly don’t need to cut these programs to pay for more tax breaks for the richest two percent of Americans. That’s NOT what Americans voted for yesterday!
Tomorrow, events are happening across the country. Check to see if there’s one near you. And, we need to call Congress as well.
National Call-In Day Tomorrow!

Republican, Democrat or Independent: Let’s all work together to make sure we’re keeping our country strong. Please make three calls, one to each Senator and one to your Representative.
Dial the Capitol Switchboard Toll-Free at 866-297-3817

Tell each of your Senators and your Representative:
1. No benefit cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
2. No more tax cuts for the richest 2%.
Not sure who your Senators and Representative are? Check (enter your zip code) and for a listing. At some points, it may be difficult to get through to the Capitol Switchboard due to call volume. You can use these links to get numbers for local offices. Every call matters !

A record number of women will represent their states in the new U.S. Senate, CNN projects.

Democrat Heidi Heitkamp will win the Senate race in North Dakota, CNN projects, making a total of 20 women in the 100-seat chamber come January. She will be part of the 53-seat Democrat majority, with 45 Republicans and two independents.

Elizabeth Warren will be the first woman senator to represent Massachusetts, and Mazie Hirono will be the first female U.S. senator from Hawaii and the first Asian-American woman in the Senate.

Other women who won Tuesday night were Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Tammy Baldwin, who will represent Wisconsin.

Dig down at to see how every state and county voted in all the presidential, Senate and House races.
