Senators: Defeat the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare Repeal Proposal

The Cassidy-Graham bill is another deadly version of Trumpcare that will take away healthcare from millions of Americans. This bill needs to be defeated so Obamacare can remain in place to save lives. We, the people of the United States, urge our senators to defeat all efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Delete @realDonaldTrump

Donald Trump has abused Twitter to bully, lie, misdirect, and misinform. He has threatened two nations with military violence in direct violation of Twitter's terms of service—and that's not his only violation. Delete @realDonaldTrump for misuse.

Demand Fair Prices for Drugs Invented using Taxpayer Money

U.S. taxpayers paid more than $200 million to invent a new cancer drug that could cure thousands of patients. Now, the drug corporation Novartis plans to charge children HALF A MILLION DOLLARS per dose. Add your name to this urgent petition and demand fair pricing for cancer drugs invented with taxpayer dollars.

Medicare for All!

The American people are ready for Medicare for All, and it is time for Congress to act. We must ensure that everyone has access to quality, affordable health care—and not at the mercy of private insurance companies that profit by denying care.

Hold Equifax Accountable

Equifax was entrusted with consumers' personal information, including Social Security numbers and other sensitive data, but the company has broken that trust by having a weak data security system. Equifax's response to the cyberattack has been to offer a free, one-year credit-monitoring service, which provides no guarantee that those who are impacted will not still be affected after one year. We demand that you, as Equifax's CEO, offer a free, lifetime credit-monitoring service to those who are impacted by Equifax's inadequate security.

No One Wins a Nuclear War

Donald Trump used his address to the United Nations General Assembly to say large portions of the world are "going to hell," talk about how President Obama's Iran deal is "an embarrassment to the United States," and threaten to "totally destroy" North Korea. Given Trump's extreme remarks, it's more important than ever for the public to deescalate the situation and oppose nuclear war! Please sign my petition.

Jeff Bezos: Eliminate plastic packaging at Whole Foods Market

You have been a marketing iconoclast and are now in a position, as a business leader, to use your buying power to induce suppliers and package designers to use their considerable ingenuity to create renewable, naturally biodegradable product packaging. Increasing eco-consciousness means more customers will shun plastic. This is a chance to do well in business while doing good.

Stop the Anti-Wildlife Sportsmen's Act

The Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act (SHARE Act), would delist wolves, allow continued lead poisoning of bald eagles and other protected birds; and open more public lands to cruel, indiscriminate trapping. Please vote NO on the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act (SHARE Act)!

Prevent a "Trump TV" Takeover

I do not support an FCC handout to Sinclair Broadcast Group—a pro-Trump media outlet—especially, if it means the company will own access to 70% of the United States' population. I urge the FCC to block a Sinclair-Tribune buyout and reinstate policies that allow for a free press and a diversity of opinions.

Betsy DeVos: Not qualified for secretary of education

Lack of experience with public schools with zero strings attached; lack of knowledge and preparation; ignorance of students with disabilities; no plans or vision except for outdated and ineffective policies that are harmful to public education. Believes in vouchers for private and religious schools so that the rich will have the advantage and not the public schools.

Pass a clean Dream Act now

Congress must deliver a clean Dream Act to provide legal protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants so cruelly impacted by the Trump administration's decision to end the popular Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Threatened National Monuments

We should give Bears Ears, Grand Staircase, Upper Missouri River Breaks in Montana, Carrizo Plain and other national monuments threatened by our current administration for oil and gas exploration back to the Native American Tribes they were stolen from.

Don't Let The Trump Administration Repeal Fracking Protections

Please do not rescind the Bureau of Land Management's 2015 rule addressing hydraulic fracturing on federal and Indian lands. The rule is the product of nearly five years of agency work, expert input, public comments and hearings, and it provides much-needed updates to the Bureau's existing regulations, which were last overhauled in the 1980s. The 2015 rule requires companies to store fracturing wastes in tanks rather than pits, and for the first time will require prior review and approval of fracturing operations on public and tribal lands. The rule also modernizes the agency's well construction and testing standards and mandates...

VICTORY: Tribune Papers Spared From Koch Empire

When the Tribune Company went up for sale, it was widely reported that the Koch brothers were interested in acquiring its newspapers - including the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune. The billionaire Kochs and their tea party politics presented a clear threat to independent journalism, so several organizations, including Forecast the Facts, Courage Campaign, and Working Families started MoveOn Petitions asking Tribune Company CEO Peter Liguori not to sell to the Koch brothers.
