We can't afford not to act on immigration reform

How President Obama is fighting for affordable health care for everyone

Congress's first job is to strengthen the economy
It's time to reach a bipartisan budget agreement that moves this country forward.
America has now seen 44 consecutive months of private sector job growth, resulting in 7.8 million new jobs. That's serious progress—but there is more work to do. Republicans and Democrats from both houses of Congress are conferencing to hash out a long-term budget. This is an opportunity to move past political antics, stop kicking the can down the road, and get to real governing.
Putting the spotlight on better health access for women
Being discriminated against by insurance companies, just because you're a woman? Obamacare is going to end that.

The continued attack on women’s rights and health

We're going public with this list
It's time for these members of Congress to lead on immigration.

Meet OFA Volunteer Leslie Sheffield
Volunteers have carried this movement from the start, and that's not changing.
Leslie couldn't sit back and let people try to dismiss Obamacare, a law that would benefit millions, so she got involved in her community—and learned that one of the best ways to get the word out is to sit down with people, one-on-one.
The EPA is about to change the game on climate change
Limits on carbon pollution for new power plants will have a huge impact.
Did you know that here in the United States, we have absolutely no limits on how much carbon pollution can be emitted by power plants, even though they are the single largest source of carbon pollution? That's about to change.
President Obama: "I've got one more campaign in me"
Watch the President's message to those fighting to make Obamacare a success.

ENDA heads to the House
We just got one big step closer to another victory for equality.
The Senate has passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, or ENDA, a bill that would ensure that no one can be legally discriminated against in the workplace just because of who you are or who you love. It's time for the House to do the same.
