I Need Your Help to Protect Health Care from Republican Attacks.

*** TJ Cox has been endorsed for CD-21 by the CDP ***

TJ Cox for Congress

We need to act.

The Trump administration is moving to eliminate protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions. But David Valadao and other Republicans in Congress are doing nothing to stop it.

In our Central Valley district alone, there are 291,000 people (46% of residents!) with pre-existing conditions who rely on the protections outlined in the Affordable Care Act in order to receive affordable health care. We can’t allow Trump or his enablers in Congress to take those protections away.

Sign the petition to tell President Trump: Stop attacking the Affordable Care Act!


Do you know anyone with asthma, diabetes, or high blood pressure?

So do I. And if Trump succeeds, big insurance companies can either cancel their insurance plans, deny their coverage outright, or raise their rates through the roof. We can’t let that happen — not on our watch.

Join the fight: Sign the petition now to tell Congress to keep their hands off the ACA.

Thank you,

Did you hear the news?

*** No candidate for Lt. Governor has been endorsed by the CDP ***

SB 17 is working!

Drugmakers across the globe are backing down because of our landmark law to ensure more transparency and accountability from drug corporations. This week, many of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world announced they are canceling plans that would have increased the price of life-saving medication.

Click here to read about SB 17’s success in Bloomberg and the Los Angeles Times.

This is a huge victory, but it’s only the beginning.

As your Lieutenant Governor, I will continue to lead the fight to make healthcare more affordable and accessible, crack down on big pharmaceutical companies for skyrocketing prescription drug costs, and prioritize California’s working families over corporate interests.

Will you chip in $10, $50, $100 or more today to join me in standing up to Big Pharma so I can build on this progress as California’s next Lieutenant Governor?

With your support we will move one step closer to our dream of guaranteed affordable and accessible healthcare for all Californians.

Thank you for standing with me,
Dr. Ed

Complete Disbelief

There’s a lot going on right now, and we must be able to multitask.

This week the whole world watched in disbelief as the president sided with Vladimir Putin over American intelligence agencies.

And while we must keep our eyes on Russia and election interference, we can’t lose sight of the children who are still separated from their parents, the attacks on the Affordable Care Act, the Supreme Court fight, and the midterm elections in November.

With that in mind, I wanted to check in with you real quick about your priorities for the weeks and months ahead. I’ve done this from time to time since being elected, and your feedback has been important to my work.

Can you take a minute to answer a few short questions on my Official July 2018 Issues Survey? It’ll only take a few moments and I will personally review your feedback this week.

Putin and Trump

Join us.

Trump’s disgraceful appearance at yesterday’s press conference with Vladimir Putin made clear that this president is unwilling to protect America from hostile foreign powers.

The American president is supposed to be in charge of protecting our country — and yesterday, Donald Trump failed to stand up for American democracy. If there was ever a time to have a check on this president, it’s now.

Time and time again, U.S. intelligence agencies have confirmed that Russia interfered in our country’s elections in 2016. Yet Trump continues to side with the Russian dictator over the dedicated members of our intelligence agencies.

At no point in our history has an American president so blatantly failed to stand up to a hostile foreign power on our nation’s behalf. Not only did Trump let Putin off the hook for attacking our country, he effectively invited him to continue meddling in our democratic process by refusing to demand that Russia stay out of our elections.

The best way to prevent further attacks on our democracy is by electing Democrats who will take this threat seriously and provide a check on Trump’s authority. This November is our chance to do that, so I’m asking:

Thank you for joining this fight.

Communications Director
Democratic National Committee

P.S. Even John McCain called Trump’s appearance with Putin “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.” None of this is normal.

Sen. McCain’s Statement on Trump-Putin Meeting


Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement today on President Trump’s meeting and press conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki:

“Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake.

“President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be speaking from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant against the fair questions of a free press, and to grant Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies to the world.

“It is tempting to describe the press conference as a pathetic rout – as an illustration of the perils of under-preparation and inexperience. But these were not the errant tweets of a novice politician. These were the deliberate choices of a president who seems determined to realize his delusions of a warm relationship with Putin’s regime without any regard for the true nature of his rule, his violent disregard for the sovereignty of his neighbors, his complicity in the slaughter of the Syrian people, his violation of international treaties, and his assault on democratic institutions throughout the world.

“Coming close on the heels of President Trump’s bombastic and erratic conduct towards our closest friends and allies in Brussels and Britain, today’s press conference marks a recent low point in the history of the American Presidency. That the president was attended in Helsinki by a team of competent and patriotic advisors makes his blunders and capitulations all the more painful and inexplicable.

“No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant. Not only did President Trump fail to speak the truth about an adversary; but speaking for America to the world, our president failed to defend all that makes us who we are—a republic of free people dedicated to the cause of liberty at home and abroad. American presidents must be the champions of that cause if it is to succeed. Americans are waiting and hoping for President Trump to embrace that sacred responsibility. One can only hope they are not waiting totally in vain.”
