We are on the verge of a government shutdown! And it's all because of Trump's racism and his refusal to ruffle feathers among his rabidly anti-immigrant base ... that, and Speaker Paul Ryan's inability to work past the extremism of his GOP House majority and pass a good-faith spending bill that could attract bipartisan support and pass in the Senate.
It's actually apropos that we're heading for a government shutdown on the eve of Trump's one-year anniversary as president. Remember, this is the same president who last year advocated for a shutdown over his hateful agenda, saying, "If we have to close down our government, we're building that wall."
Having you renewed as a 2018 member has never been more urgent!
We need to fight back, force the GOP to back down, and be ready to HOLD TRUMP REPUBLICANS ACCOUNTABLE.
** Donations before midnight tomorrow will be 100% MATCHED! **
Your current membership status for 2018 is UNRENEWED. We are facing challenges from all sides in the year ahead, and your support is key to stopping Trump and his Republican enablers.
Right now we are matching ALL member contributions up to $50,000â€¦ so NOW is the time to renew your membership and make it count DOUBLE.
The one year anniversary of Trump's inauguration is in TWO DAYS. But, more importantly, it's the anniversary of the fierce resistance against Trump's administration that has fought tooth-and-nail to protect the rights of everyone.
We're not just going to be fighting the administration and their hateful policies this yearâ€¦ we also have the midterm elections in November that will determine who controls the US House of Representatives and maybe even the Senate. We can winâ€¦ but it's not going to be easy.
Make sure that we have all the resources we need going into this year as we face difficult elections and never-ending bad news from the Trump administration.
Renew by JANUARY 20 to make sure we meet this matching gift offer and that we start the new year with everything we need to be effective and successful in all of the fights ahead.
Your support is the most important weapon we have in the fight against the extreme Right Wing.
