What the Senate just did:

Friend -- This morning's tax scam will go down as one of the most shameful acts in Senate history. In a single bill -- finalized Friday night in scribbled handwriting, and passed in the early hours of Saturday morning -- Mitch McConnell and 50 other senators have voted to: -- Push 13 million Americans off health care. -- Raise taxes on 87 million middle-class families. -- Punish homeowners, college students, and graduates. -- Add a trillion dollars to our deficit. All in the name of massive tax breaks for billionaires and corporations. It's a bill that was never -- not for a second -- presented honestly to the American people, and its stain won't soon go away. We'll fight this bill as it goes to conference. We'll make sure every House member knows he or she should think long and hard before rubber-stamping this calamity. We'll let every Senator who voted "yes" know that we deserve better than this bill, this process, and this vote. And we will keep working, over the next few months, on the fights that determine the future of our country. Let's channel our anger to fix gerrymandering, to save DREAMers, to push back against climate change, to keep making progress. This work needs people, resources, and supporters like you.

Friend --

This morning's tax scam will go down as one of the most shameful acts in Senate history.

In a single bill -- finalized Friday night in scribbled handwriting, and passed in the early Saturday morning hours -- Mitch McConnell and 50 other senators voted to:

  • Push 13 million Americans off health care.
  • Ultimately raise taxes on 87 million middle-class families.
  • Punish homeowners, college students, and graduates.
  • Add a trillion dollars to our deficit.

  • All in the name of massive tax breaks for billionaires and corporations.

    It's a bill that was never -- not for a second -- presented honestly to the American people, and its stain won't soon go away.

    We'll fight this bill as it goes to conference. We'll make sure every House member knows he or she should think long and hard before rubber-stamping this calamity.

    We'll let every Senator who voted "yes" know that we deserve better than this bill, this process, and this vote.

    And we will keep working, over the next few months, on the fights that determine the future of our country. Let's channel our anger to fix gerrymandering, to protect DREAMers, to push back against climate change, to keep making progress.

    This work needs people, resources, and supporters like you. Say you'll help:
