Anne, Congress is almost through with its February Recess—and we are REALLY getting under the skin of Republican members who enabled Donald Trump's hateful agenda.

What"are you doing this weekend? RSVP to attend a Resistance Recess event near you. Attend a town hall event hosted by your member of Congress, or a protest organized by local activists if there is no town hall event to attend.

Can't"make an event? Chip in $3 to help Daily Kos build more resistance to Trump and the GOP.

Every day, we are getting new reports of members of Congress getting pressure from us:

  • Tennessee Republican Marsha Blackburn held"a town hall in a small conservative town, but she still got called to the carpet. Now she's lying that the protesters were from outside her district, even though they checked ID's at the entrance and only constituents were allowed inside.

  • Florida Senator Marco Rubio is finding excuses to do just about anything except attend Town Halls, so his constituents are holding"mass protests without him—and dogging him with questions he would rather avoid.

We"are winning, they are scared—and we only have this weekend before members of Congress go back to Washington D.C. Please click here to attend a Resistance Recess event near you.

Anne, members of Congress are back in their home districts during a congressional recess. The Republicans who are holding town hall events while they are home are being called out by their constituents for enabling Donald Trump's hateful agenda, and it's"annoying them, big time.

It is depressing that Donald Trump is President, and that Republicans control Congress. But if you want to feel better today, read and watch some of these amazing report-backs from Resistance Recess.

  • Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton got raked"through the coals by an angry room full of constituents because he wants to repeal Obamacare.
  • A Kentucky woman lectured"Mitch McConnell about Obamacare repeal, and vowed to "sit down and shut up" (like he wanted Elizabeth Warren to do) if he had a better plan. Of course, he did not.

  • Virginia Congressman Dave Brat whined"about "paid activists," so some of his constituents drove 165 miles to a town hall to tell him that no one was paying them to be there.

Real people with real problems are confronting members of Congress with real facts. And if Republicans refuse to hold town hall meetings because they are too scared of the response they would receive, we organize protests that are generating good"media attention.
