We Must Not Agonize, We Must Organize
Justice Kavanaugh's Confirmation
The GOP’s decision to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has wounded the very soul of justice in our country.
Amid our heartbreak, however, we renew our resolve and determination. We are awed by the dignity and bravery of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and by the courage of the countless survivors across our country who have come forward with their own stories, even at great personal risk. Their dignity and bravery continue to be a rallying cry and a source of strength for survivors across the world, inspiring an ever-growing chorus of women to say ‘Me Too’ and ‘Time’s Up.’
We must not agonize, we must organize! What is at stake under the GOP Congress is nothing less than the health and financial security of families across America. The new conservative majority on the Supreme Court threatens a rollback of protections for people with pre-existing conditions, more leverage for corporate special interests over working families, and little hope to reform Citizens United. Democrats will work even harder to advance our For The People legislative agenda: lowering health costs and prescription drug prices, raising workers’ wages with strong economic growth by rebuilding America, and cleaning up corruption to make Washington work for you!
Hurricane Michael has left millions of Americans reeling from the heartbreaking devastation and destruction of their homes and communities throughout the Florida panhandle and across the southeast. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families, friends and loved ones of all those who have lost their lives, and our hearts go out to the families whose lives have been upended by this unprecedented storm.
Our deepest thanks go to the heroic first responders who have worked selflessly in the days before and after Hurricane Michael to come to the aid of those in need. Federal, state and local authorities must come together to provide every resource necessary to help these brave men and women in their critical, life-saving efforts. Congress must be ready to assist all the communities impacted by this deadly storm now and on the long road to recovery.
My office was able to help a disabled veteran who was experiencing an issue securing a temporary passport because he did not have a birth certificate or an early childhood record. My office contacted the San Francisco Passport Agency and was able to secure a one-year temporary passport for my constituent.
