Kraft: Get rid of any sources of toxic, hormone-disrupting chemicals in food!

Kraft cheese is America’s biggest cheese brand by far. But most people don’t know that some of Kraft’s cheese products may contain toxic chemicals called phthalates. In fact, phthalates were in eight of the nine items of individual Kraft cheese products we tested, including its iconic Macaroni and Cheese. Phthalates are also found in other products, and many experts believe that even small exposures may contribute to elevated risk. My son was born with a genital birth defect. No one can say for sure what caused it or that the foods I ate while pregnant played any part, but this...

Make Trumpcare Mandatory for Congress

Should the Republicans in the U.S. Congress pass Trumpcare, legally make members of Congress, their staffs, and their respective families eligible ONLY for individual insurance plans offered through Trumpcare insurance exchanges, without any additional benefits or subsidies provided by the U.S. government. This group must personally experience the effects of Trumpcare and be barred from the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.

Save Amtrak

We, the undersigned, urge Congress to reject the proposed elimination of all long distance Amtrak passenger train service by the Trump administration. If enacted, hundreds of small communities across the US would lose their last means of low cost public transportation to the outside world.

Gov. Kasich: Please don't resume executions in Ohio.

There is too much risk associated with Ohio's death penalty. We are some of the nine men exonerated from Ohio's death row, proving that innocent people have been sentenced to death in our state. We cannot restart executions until there are better safeguards in place to ensure that Ohio never executes an innocent person, which would be unthinkable. The state does not need to go from no executions in three years to 27 back-to-back executions, especially given its track record with wrongful convictions and botched executions. Another botched execution, like the one that occurred three years ago, would be bad...

Congress: Debate Our Wars.

Congress hasn't debated or authorized any U.S. military operations since 2001. In the past 16 years, the 2001 AUMF has been used by both Republican and Democratic administrations to authorize more than 37 military actions in 14 countries around the world. It's time for Congress to re-assert its Constitutional responsibility to debate and authorize U.S. military operations. Please support Congresswoman Lee's (D-CA) amendment in the Defense Appropriations bill to sunset the 2001 AUMF.

VICTORY: Governor Corbett Releases Education Dollars To Philadelphia Schools

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.
