A message from Charles Erwin and :

I depend on VA care after exposure to Agent Orange during my service in Vietnam. 

So, as a Kentuckian, I was disappointed with my Senator, Mitch McConnell, for his role in blocking improvements to veterans’ health care during a time of crisis earlier this year. 

And when VoteVets asked me to share my story in a television ad set to air across Kentucky starting today, I immediately agreed. 

Watch and share it with friends…

After 30 years in Washington, Mitch McConnell’s gotta go.

(Wednesday) the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in favor of HB 1170, a bill to abolish the death penalty, by a vote of 225-104.

The New Hampshire legislature passed repeal measures two other times—in 2000 when it passed in both chambers but was vetoed by the governor, and in 2009 when it was passed in the House but failed to get support in the Senate. We’re hopeful that the third time is the charm! […]

PS-The bill will now go on to the Senate for consideration. If you live in New Hampshire, please contact your Senator now to express your support for repeal! If you live elsewhere but have friends or family in New Hampshire, please share this message with them as well.





Senator Bernie Sanders recently returned from a trip to the south. In Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina he held town hall meetings with trade unionists, progressive Democrats, Independents and others who are working hard to take on right-wing Republicans — the people who dominate the politics in their states. The meetings were very well attended, and the response was enthusiastic.

Watch Bernie’s interview with Ed Schultz from Columbia, South Carolina where they discuss what progressives need to do to win in 2014.
