Dear Colleague on Fighting for A Better Deal for Hard-Working Americans in Upcoming Legislative Business

Dear Democratic Colleague,

Tomorrow, President Trump will release his 2019 budget and perhaps his infrastructure plan.  This occasion presents us with a pivotal moment in the governance of our country.

Last week, we finally came to closure on the caps funding with the fifth stop-gap budget bill until March 23rd.

This week, we must pivot aggressively to show the country how the Trump budget is not a statement of our values, and how the Trump infrastructure plan harms taxpayers and consumers.  And we must continue showing the public how unfair the GOP Tax Scam is to the middle class and halt the GOP assault on the Affordable Care Act.  This is the time, this is the opportunity.  We must be persistent in advocating A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages and a Better Future.

We have great leadership on our committees of jurisdiction, the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, and with Chairman Luján.

Tomorrow, the Senate will take the next steps to bring a bill to the Senate floor to protect the DREAMers.  I hope we can get the same respect from Speaker Ryan.

Working together, we must win our fight for American values, the financial stability of America’s working families and the integrity of our elections.

Thank you for your leadership.

best regards,
