It's never been clearer that Majority Leader McConnell and his caucus are acting on purely partisan motives. A whopping 67 percent of voters didn't want them to "go nuclear" -- but instead, they rewrote the rules in their favor.
This is a reckless move that will grant a lifetime appointment to a judge who couldn't even reach consensus support -- and it could have consequences for decades to come.
It's up to all of us to keep letting members of Congress know we won't stand for these kinds of unprecedented and irresponsible moves, and we won't stop taking action when they try new ways to bend the system to their will.
Add your name if you're ready to double down and show leaders in Congress that we're paying attention, and we're not going away -- we're going to stay strong and keep organizing, because we deserve better.
In February, people like you flooded town halls and made your priorities known. You spoke up about the chaos that repealing Obamacare would create, and you better believe that made an impact. When congressional leaders got back to Washington, they found themselves without the support they needed to repeal Obamacare.
Congress is going on recess again tomorrow, and we're going to use the opportunity to keep training and supporting each other to hold our representatives accountable. Let's make it clear to them that reckless moves like the one they made this afternoon -- which undermine one of the most important parts of our democracy -- are unacceptable.
Keep the pressure on -- say you're not going to back down.
