On Wednesday, the 154th mass shooting of the year took place in the US. This shooting, however, garnered more attention because it was directed at our legislators in Washington.

DEMAND AN INDEPENDENT COMMISSION AND IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGSCALL OUR MoC TO DEMAND THEY STAND UP AND PROTECT OUR DEMOCRACY! - Jun 09, 2017

James Comey’s testimony confirms that Donald Trump tried to obstruct justice. The President of the United States knew that the FBI was investigating his associates, TRIED TO STOP THAT INVESTIGATION, and then fired the person who wouldn’t stop it. This is obstruction of justice, a federal crime, and an impeachable offense.

STOP CONGRESS FROM UNINSURING MILLIONS OF PEOPLECALL OUR SENATORS TO REJECT THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT! - Jun 08, 2017

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis of the revised American Health Care Act (AHCA) is in, and its findings are clear: the bill will strip 14 million Americans of health insurance by next year and 23 million by 2026 while making coverage unaffordable for millions more. In fact, the AHCA would leave more Americans uninsured by 2026 than were...

TEXAS LEADS THE NATION IN TEEN PREGNANCY AND MATERNAL DEATHCALL YOUR GOVERNOR AND STATE REPRESENTATIVES TO DEMAND THEY STAND UP FOR TEXAS WOMEN! - Jun 07, 2017

After decades of GOP leadership, Texas has become the leader in teen pregnancies. GREAT NEWS! Dallas and San Antonio have rates 40 to 50% above the national average. In contrast, California put resources into education and access to contraceptives and their rates dropped by 74%. Texas implemented abstinence only programs. In addition, maternal deaths in Texas skyrocketed, a rate unrivaled...

ASK REP. MCCAUL TO TAKE A PUBLIC POSITION ON CLIMATE CHANGECALL MCCAUL AND DEMAND HE REPRESENT TX-10 TO HELP SAVE THE PLANET! - Jun 02, 2017

As with so many other issues, Rep. McCaul has stayed relatively quiet and invisible on Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord (other than a single facebook post), even as many other Texas officials and businesses have weighed in on both sides of the issue. (Cornyn and Cruz may be totally wrongheaded, but at least...

SOME HARD QUESTIONS ABOUT HEALTHCARE FOR CRUZ AND CORNYN!CALL YOUR SENATORS TO DEMAND THEY NOT SUPPORT THE NEW TRUMPCARE PROPOSAL! - May 30, 2017

Republicans in the House including Michael McCaul sided with Trump over the wellbeing of their constituents when they voted to pass TrumpCare. They voted for it without a CBO score, meaning that they didn’t even know the harm it would do to the American people. We now have a CBO score and it is every bit as bad as we...

CBO SAYS 23 MILLION WOULD LOSE INSURANCE! SAY NO!CALL YOUR SENATORS AND YOUR HOUSE REP TODAY! - May 26, 2017

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects the bill the House passed to repeal and replace Obamacare (the ACA) would increase the number of uninsured people by 23 million, and dramatically raise insurance premiums on the sick and elderly. All the gains in the number of insured Americans achieved by Obamacare would be wiped out, according to the CBO.

Monday’s Supreme Court ruling striking down two North Carolina congressional districts for gerrymandering to discriminate based on race has big implications for Texas.

SUPPORT RURAL HOSPITALS AND TEXANS AND STOP TRUMPCARE TODAY!TELL CORNYN AND CRUZ THAT THE TRUMPCARE HURTS RURAL TEXANS! - May 23, 2017

Obamacare made advances in providing health care access to rural Americans, and rural residents were more likely to gain coverage under the ACA. Unfortunately, Trumpcare will reverse those gains. Eliminating need-based tax credits for the purchase of health insurance will disproportionately impact rural Americans. Fewer insured individuals will result in closure of rural hospitals. The CBO had predicted 24 million...

The Federal Communications Commission voted along party lines (2-1) on Thursday to begin unraveling the net neutrality regulations put in place in 2015 under President Obama.

Despite all the partisanship and division in America lately, there was one issue that liberals and conservatives were starting to agree on: that America was incarcerating too many of its citizens for too long.

DEMAND MCCAUL EXPLAIN HIS SUPPORT FOR AHCA!PROTEST THE AHCA AND SAVE TEXAS MOTHERS! - May 12, 2017

Maternal mortality rates in the U.S. are appalling: since 2000, they have increased by more than 25%, putting us on par with countries like Qatar and Bahrain.

DEMAND AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO RUSSIAN ELECTION INTERFERENCE!URGENT CALL TO ACTION TO DEFEND OUR DEMOCRACY - May 10, 2017

Yesterday, Trump took the extraordinary and unprecedented step of firing an FBI Director who was currently leading an investigation into his administration. This is a frightening, authoritarian abuse of power, but also an act of desperation. Make no mistake, THIS IS A MISSTEP BY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. They just put Russia back in the headlines for weeks and almost instantly...

The White House and far-right Republicans are hammering out a new health care repeal bill that may be voted on as early as TOMORROW.

That means we...

NO FUNDING FOR TRUMP’S BORDER WALL!CALL TO ACTION – Tell McCaul to Drop Support for the Ineffective Border Wall - Apr 25, 2017

A cornerstone of President Trump’s campaign was the promise that he would build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, claiming that the Mexican people who were emigrating here were “rapists” and “bad hombres.” Not only are President Trump’s characterizations of the Mexican community racist and incorrect, this wall he’s proposing comes with a massive estimated $25 billion-dollar price tag. Even...

Texas Republicans have been handed yet another federal court ruling that says their voting laws have violated the Constitution by intentionally disenfranchising minorities.

Michael McCaul is beating the drums for war. Last week, he expressed repeatedly his belief that the U.S. should lead the effort to forcibly remove Assad from power and rebuild Syria.

The American Health Care Act (AHCA) attempts to make good on the longtime conservative objective of defunding Planned Parenthood: it includes a provision that would deny federal funding in the form of Medicaid to any healthcare provider who performs abortion services.

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) is an important safeguard for American workers.

Demand REP. McCAUL PUBLICLY SUPPORT a Congressional investigation into Trump’s Russia tiesCALL TO ACTION for Thursday, Feb. 16 - Feb 16, 2017

This is not a scandal anymore. It’s a full-blown crisis. In early January, Rep. Michael McCaul said that Trump’s relationship to Russia “deserves investigation, but he hasn’t made any further statement since the resignation of Gen.
