100 Days of Resistance

 

 

Tomorrow marks 100 days since President Trump took office.

Those first 100 days have been marked by conflict and fear.  But those 100 days have also been marked by something else: resistance.

Since Donald Trump first took office and began his war on healthcare, civil rights, immigrants, and the environment, people across the country have gotten involved and organized at every level of politics.

So how have I fought back?

• We fought back against President Trump’s baseless and dangerous voter fraud allegations.

• We announced that eligible 16 and 17-year-olds can now pre-register to vote online in California.

• We are calling for California voters to have an earlier say in the Presidential Primary process with our Prime Time Primary Bill, SB 568, authored by Senator Lara.

• I’m sponsoring the Voting Modernization Bond Act of 2018, which seeks $450 million to improve California’s voting systems, authored by Assemblymember Gonzalez-Flethcer.

And we are just getting started.

I will work tirelessly each and every day to defend our right to vote and fight back against laws and executive orders that would reverse the progress for which generations before us fought so hard.

Do you have additional ideas for what we should do in the next 100 days? Send me an email!  I’d love to hear from you.

Here’s how I see it

Join us.

Donald Trump will mark 100 days in office tomorrow — and we’ll celebrate 100 days of resistance. Help us keep fighting by becoming a Founding Donor to our 100 Day Resistance Fund:

 

DONATE
Michael —

A lot of folks have been talking about giving Donald Trump a failing grade for the first hundred days of his presidency.

Well, if he were in one of my classes, I’d give him an “incomplete.”

Donald made a lot of promises about what he’d do in his first 100 days. “A contract between Donald J. Trump and the American voter,” he called it. If it were a real legal contract, the voters could have taken him to court by now.

He promised to help out middle-class families, but on his first day in office he made it harder for folks to buy their first home. He talked a big game about how he’d “drain the swamp,” and then he filled his administration with lobbyists and put together a Cabinet straight out of a Wall Street boardroom — what could be swampier?

And let’s not even get into his attendance record, Michael. Ducking out nearly every weekend for a taxpayer-funded trip to a Trump-owned resort? Spending about one-fifth of his presidency at his own golf courses? Give me a break.

When you don’t complete the assignment, you have to pay the price. For Donald, that’s us holding him accountable and beating the GOP.

Before tomorrow, pitch in $10 or more to our 100 Day Resistance Fund.
