Barack needs you, right now
There's a lot of noise and talk and back-and-forth going on in Washington, but hardly any of it seems to be about the struggles that middle-class families face.
When I was growing up, a family like mine -- living on my hard-working father's salary at the city water plant -- could build a solid life without much debt and without relying on any form of public assistance. Today, for too many families, that American promise is no longer within reach.
Barack is working to fix that and he needs solid Democrats in Congress to help him. Chip in $10 or more today to support Democrats who are going to get Barack's back.
It's easy to get frustrated and cynical about politics. Now that the excitement of the presidential campaign has faded, it is so tempting to wait another four years to re-engage.
But make no mistake about it -- while some are tuning out, others are tuning in. They're doing everything they can to make their voices heard. We're seeing the effects of that kind of imbalance every single day.
You've had Barack's back since the election -- thank you for that. If you can, please chip in $10 or more today to support the Democrats fighting for his agenda:
P.S. -- Please don't wait for the next presidential election to get involved -- we've got to get going right now. That's the only way we'll get it done.

I'll tell you what:
I will spend the next three and a half years doing everything I can to work with anyone -- Democrat, Republican, or independent -- to fight for middle class families.
But I'll tell you what: it would be a lot easier if I had a Democratic House and a Democratic Senate to do it.
Chip in $10 or more today to support Democratic candidates who are going to come to Washington and help get things done.
There are some Republicans in Congress willing to work with us and compromise -- and I'm going to work with those people to solve the challenges we face and share the tough decisions.
But too often, Republicans seem more committed to gridlock than getting to yes. They seem more interested in stopping us at any cost than in helping the next generation.
That's what we're up against. It's going to be absolutely critical that you feel the same urgency and intensity over the next year and a half leading up to the midterm elections as you did in 2008 and 2012, Automat.
If you do, then we can take back the House and we can keep the Senate in Democratic hands. That will allow me to appoint outstanding judges to the federal bench. That will allow us to ensure that we are making progress on issues like creating jobs and climate change and education that are critically important for the next generation.
It can be done -- but it can only be done with your support:

Late last night...
Across the country, anti-choice activists are paying attention to what you're going to do right now.
Late last night, the Texas legislature passed an extraordinarily restrictive law that will make it illegal for a woman to receive an abortion after 20 weeks, and may shutter all but five of the 42 abortion clinics in the state.
The impact of this law will be felt by women and families far outside of Texas, because its passage will embolden the forces all around the country who want to roll back the right of a woman to make her own health decisions, one state at a time.
Stopping them will require both resources and political will.
Show them you're not going to let them win -- add your name to the petition now.
Thousands of people -- men and women alike -- joined together to protest this bill. And those people are committed to fighting back over the long haul and turning the great state of Texas blue.
But across the country, anti-choice activists are watching us, and any hint of resignation will be an encouragement for them to keep their campaign going into more and more states.
We need everyone on board. Say you're in:

We're not going back
Republicans in Texas thought they could pass legislation that would effectively shut down women's health clinics and no one would put up a fight.
But then Wendy Davis stood up -- and she kept standing up for 11 hours. Thousands upon thousands joined her in Texas and across the country. But Rick Perry and the Republican-controlled Texas legislature are still trying to ram it through.
If you look at what Republicans are doing to restrict a woman's ability to make her own health care decisions in Texas, North Carolina, Wisconsin and 14 other states, it's hard not to think that they want to turn back the clock a few decades.
Well, here's some news for those Republicans: we're not going back.
Tens of thousands of Democrats, men and women alike, have been standing up to be heard -- and you should be part of it. Say you're in.
First, Texas. Then, last week in North Carolina, Republicans introduced a similar bill just before the Fourth of July holiday. Over the weekend in Wisconsin, Republican Governor Scott Walker quietly signed a highly restrictive measure while everyone was out for the holiday. Maybe he thought no one would notice.
But we noticed. People are standing up in North Carolina and Wisconsin, and in states across the country that Republicans have targeted for legislation that restricts women's access to health care.
Democrats are determined to do everything it takes to stand with Wendy Davis and everyone else fighting for women's rights.
Say you're with us in this, Automat:
