“Democrats are fighting to protect your health care by opposing Trump’s junk plans and his dangerous lawsuit. Because to us, there’s nothing political about making sure everybody gets good, affordable health coverage.”

Fighting Back: “Congress must act on election security to protect our democracy.”

 
 

The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Senator Mark Warner of Virginia calling out Republicans for their refusal to pass laws protecting our elections.

“Congress must work together to protect our democracy and reassure Americans that their votes will be counted in 2020. We cannot let election security become another tombstone in the Republican Senate’s legislative graveyard.”

The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Rep. Bennie Thompson from Mississippi:

Rep. Thompson

“Congress must act and act immediately. We must get the truth about Russia’s meddling and the full extent of the Trump Campaign complicity. But we must also take action to protect our elections and our election infrastructure next time.

“That is why House Democrats launched the Congressional Task Force on Election Security, which I am proud to co-chair with Congressman Brady from Pennsylvania.

“This task force’s central mission is to focus on how to bolster the cyber and physical security of our election system ahead of the 2018 election. […]

“While elections are the exclusive responsibilities of the states, the Federal government has a responsibility to step up and help, where needed, to support states as they work to prevent the Russians or other bad actors from disrupting and interfering with our elections.

Protecting the integrity of our election system should not be a partisan concern. We hope House Republicans will join us.
