The billionaire vs. the kindergarten teacher

I hold town halls in every Oregon county, every year. I go to big towns and small towns and meet with farmers and teachers, chefs and mechanics, people who ride bikes and people who drive trucks.

One thing all of these people have in common? None of them ever asks me how we can make our country work better for the rich and powerful.

Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress are catering to ultra-wealthy elites who run the biggest corporations and cut the biggest campaign checks. The fix is simple: we must take back Congress.

Chip in $6 so we can win back Congress in 2018.

Who do you think Republicans in Congress had in mind when they passed their devastating tax scam that robs from the poor to give to the rich?

The family farmer? Try again.

The retired kindergarten teacher? No way.

The billionaires and corporate titans who rig the system for themselves? Bingo.

Our government is broken because everyday Americans aren't having their voices heard in Congress.

It's time we fixed that. We need a populist movement that renews our country.

Stand with me and let's take back Congress. Chip in $6 today.
