    11.4 million Americans signed up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

    Folks like you fought for health care reform, and as a result, we've made undeniable progress in helping a growing number of people every day. But that's not stopping the other side from trying to repeal our efforts—take a stand to defend the Affordable Care Act today.

  • Here come the grooms

    This Valentine’s Day, some couples in Florida have something extra special to celebrate.

    On January 6th, Florida's ban on same-sex marriage ended, allowing Dylan and Nick—after years in a committed and loving relationship—to get married in the company of their family and friends.

  • Tonight: The State of the Union

    President Obama will address the nation with his agenda for 2015.

    Tonight, the President will lay out his priorities for the year ahead -- outlining policies to strengthen the middle class and make sure our recovering economy is working for all Americans.

    But he's not the only one who's been laying out an agenda for the country. The new Congress has been in session for just two weeks, and in that time, Speaker Boehner and Leader McConnell have been busy:

  • For millions of Americans, 2015 just started with good news

    In 20 states, a minimum wage increase just took effect.

    On January 1st, millions of hard-working Americans got a much-deserved raise, when minimum wage increases went into effect in 20 states. And several big cities and the District of Columbia will join them later this year.

    This progress is the result of hard-fought battles. Without the dedicated work of grassroots organizers across the country, we wouldn't be celebrating this news today.
