In a misguided attack, the National Republican Congressional Committee
(NRCC) actually said that Speaker Pelosi -- the woman second in line to
the Presidency -- should be "put in her place." This type of offensive
comment has no place in our national discourse. Sign our petition denouncing the NRCC's offensive comments today>>
Despite polls showing millions of Americans support a public option,

the first American to talk to who's in favor of the public option,

are among the millions of Americans who support a public option. We
will send your comments directly to him>>

Republicans Play... You Lose
Some Republicans in Congress are playing games with working families.
They opposed the Credit Cardholders' Bill of Rights — critical
legislation that protects people who work hard and play by the rules
from facing unfair interest rate increases and excessive fees.
Tell these Republicans that you're tired of their games. Sign our petition asking them to stand up for working families, and not the credit card companies charging responsible customers excessive fees and sky-high interest rates>>

Don't Veto A Pay Raise for Our Troops
Incredibly, President Bush has threatened to veto a Democratic plan to give our troops a much needed pay raise. Even with one in five military families surviving on food stamps, the President won't support a modest 3.5% pay increase. Supporting our troops is more than just words. It's about taking action.

Tell Republicans in Congress to Support Overriding Bush's Stem Cell Veto
Pres. Bush has continually shown that the extremists in his party come before progress. With Democrats in control, and with Congress having the power to override a veto with a 2/3 majority vote, together we can give hope to pursue life-saving science.
