Hey there —
We announced something big this week: an unprecedented, multi-million dollar investment in state parties:
Investing in state Democratic parties is how we’ll win elections and send more Democrats to state legislatures, governor’s mansions, and Congress — and that is critically important at a time when so much is at stake.
Here’s just one example: Senate Republicans are still trying to cut last-minute deals to shore up GOP support for their disastrous health care repeal. But at the end of the day, their bill still takes health care from the poor to give tax cuts to the rich:
That’s why Democrats from all over the country are fighting back, sharing their stories, and speaking out about what affordable health care means to them:
We have to keep fighting tooth and nail until we kill this bill once and for all. So, as always, keep tweeting, sharing, and taking action in your own community — every little bit counts.

We are moving forward with the press Conference on Tuesday, July 18 at the Robert E. Coyle Federal Building at 11am.
This conference will be in regards to the New Senate Healthcare Bill and the recent attacks against DACA.
We are looking for speakers that are impacted by the Healthcare Bill and DACA. We need an additional 4 speakers. Please let me know if you can attend or if you have speakers available.

Senate Republicans released a new version of their health care bill Thursday, unveiling a proposed rollback of Medicaid expansion and funding, while ensuring hefty tax cuts for health care companies. Among other things , the bill reduces the number of middle-income people eligible to get tax credits for private health insurance, eliminates the individual and employer mandates, and bans Planned Parenthood from receiving any federal funding for one year.
|It’s been another productive week for the California Democratic Party. See below for a recap of this week’s activities.
Resistance Summer Rolls Through California
DNC Deputy Chair Keith Ellison and CDP Chair Eric C. Bauman were joined by DNC Vice Chair Maria Elena Durazo, Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis, and Representatives Brad Sherman and Ted Lieu. The capacity crowd was fired up about protecting our health care, standing up for immigrants, and stopping Trump’s alt-right agenda.
Here’s a great recap video of the event. And be sure to check this clip of Chair Bauman’s appearance on KNBC’s News Conference with Conan Nolan, where he discussed the Resistance Summer event.

This is seven-year-old Myka:
After she was born, she remained in the intensive care unit for two weeks and has had two open heart surgeries. Before she turned one, Myka and her family had approximately $500,000 in medical costs.
Myka’s mom wrote to me, asking us to protect her daughter from any bill that would deny her health coverage. I want her to know that my Democratic colleagues and I won’t give up trying to protect and strengthen our nation’s health care system, no matter what the other side throws our way.
I need you to share your story about how the Senate Republicans’ new bill will affect you or someone you care about. We know the single most effective way to win this fight is to make it personal. So if you’re comfortable, please take a short moment to tell your story and I will share them with my colleagues in the Senate.
To everyone out there, please stay engaged in this fight until the very end. Next week is going to be the most important one yet and we cannot give up the calls to protect Myka and so many other children like her.
Thanks for everything you do.
U.S. Senator, California
