corrupted

Sign our petition calling on the U.S. Senate to reject Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. This process has been corrupted and rushed, and the very last thing we need is a right-wing political operative serving on the Supreme Court.

This is outrageous

Judge Kavanaugh was hand-picked by conservative special interest groups because of his opposition to Roe v. Wade, and we know his loyalty will be with the president who appointed him, not to the Constitution or the American people who deserve someone who will treat everyone equally under the law.

As Kamala said yesterday:

We need you to add your name to Kamala’s petition opposing the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The only chance we have to stop Trump’s ideologically-driven takeover of the highest court in the land is by working together. Can we count on you?

Make no mistake: the most critical and hotly debated legal cases could be decided by Judge Kavanaugh, including:

— Access to health care and contraception;
— Money in politics and environmental protections;
— LGBT and voting rights;
— Executive power — and whether a sitting president can be indicted or subpoenaed (a question Kavanaugh failed to answer today.)

Kamala is going to get the chance to ask Kavanaugh questions under oath this evening and tomorrow, and we know she is going to ask tough, pointed questions to expose his record and right-wing leanings to the American people.

Let’s make sure she knows we’ve got her back:

Can you add your name to Kamala’s petition opposing Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court right now?

This is a personal fight for millions of Americans who are demanding equal rights and fairness under the law. We owe it to them to keep fighting.

Thanks for all you do,

— Team Kamala

Crucial hearing today to defend Obamacare

Today is a crucial hearing in our effort to defend the Affordable Care Act against a Texas-led lawsuit to tear down the law.

 

When the Trump administration declined to defend the ACA against the Texas lawsuit, we stepped up, because there is too much at stake to sit idly by.

 

 

If Texas wins, within days, millions of Americans who are insured through Medicaid or through the Obamacare exchanges stand to immediately lose their health insurance.

 

Insurers could once again deny coverage or charge exorbitant rates to people with pre-existing conditions.

 

Young people could lose the right to stay on their parents’ plans until they turn 26, leaving millions more Americans without coverage.

 

Health insurers could once again institute lifetime caps that prevent sick and vulnerable Americans from receiving the lifelong care they need.

 

Our GOP opponent opposes the ACA’s individual mandate and thinks government should be less involved in keeping health care affordable. He won’t continue our essential fight to save the ACA. 

 

 

Thank you,

 

Xavier

New Janz Ad: Devin Nunes left Valley “High and Dry” in Failure to Address Water Crisis

New Janz Ad: Devin Nunes left Valley “High and Dry” in Failure to Address Water Crisis

Fresno, CA (September 5th, 2018) – The Andrew Janz for Congress campaign released a new ad today for television and digital, targeting Devin Nunes for handing out special interest favors instead of solving the water crisis devastating Valley farmers and families. Devin Nunes has never passed a water bill in the nearly two decades he’s served in Congress, and in fact, pushed for a bill that helped his corporate mega-donor use more water than anyone else in California.

The video can be viewed here:https://youtu.be/Wt5tNivaO3I

###

Andrew Janz is a Deputy District Attorney for Fresno County, where he was assigned to the Violent Crimes Unit before entering the race against 8- term incumbent Rep. Devin Nunes after his infamous midnight Uber trip to the White House last spring. Andrew Janz is 34 years old and resides in Fresno with his wife Heather and their two dogs.

Devin Nunes is the 8 term incumbent for California Congressional District 22 who became a national lightning rod after his midnight trip to the White House in 2017. Most recently Devin Nunes has come under national and local scrutiny for his most recent ethical missteps in spending thousands of campaign dollars on Boston Celtics tickets, wine tours, and Las Vegas getaways.

SIGN ON: Stop Trump’s Supreme Court pick >>

enable him.

TJ Cox for Congress

 

THIS WEEK: Senate GOP begins hearings to confirm Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh

Tell Congress that you oppose confirming Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court pick >>

Add your name

 


 



Right now, priority number one is to restore the rule of law in Washington and get back to respecting our democratic institutions at all levels of government. And as more members of Donald Trump’s circle are found guilty of crimes, it’s more crucial than ever that we hold this president accountable — not enable him.

That’s why I’m joining millions of Democrats and concerned Americans across the country who are calling on the U.S. Senate to reject Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh. I’m hoping you will join me and add your name, too >>

Reject Brett Kavanaugh


Not only does Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation pose a serious threat to Democratic values like getting big money out of politics, protecting a woman’s right to choose, and ensuring the rights of workers — Kavanaugh believes that sitting presidents should be protected from criminal investigations and prosecution.

Right now, Republicans are rushing to confirm him while simultaneously trying to suppress up to a hundred thousand documents with details about Kavanaugh’s time in the White House. That’s not okay.

We can’t take any risks with this lifetime appointment. Add your name to this petition and tell the U.S. Senate that you oppose Trump’s Supreme Court pick >>

Thanks for adding your voice,

TJ Cox
