The American people gave us a job to do. We’re doing it.

President Biden's plan to lower the cost of living — the Build Back Better plan — is critical for just about every family in America.

Now that it's passed the House, I'm focused on making sure that we don't trim it back any further. The tough compromises have been made. Now it's time to pass it.

But you know what? I'm already looking ahead to what happens next in this fight.

Remember ObamaCare? We passed it, delivered health care to millions of Americans, and the Republicans spent years trying to undermine it, break it, defund it, and repeal it.

That's the next fight, over the horizon. We've got to pass Build Back Better—and deliver on affordable child care and universal pre-K, lower prescription drug prices, thousands of new clean energy jobs, more affordable housing, at-home care for seniors, and so much more.

And then we'll have to win elections in 2022 to defend our Democratic majorities to protect these big wins for the American people. Will you chip in $3 right now to help us build the progressive team in the Senate we need to fight back against Republicans who would turn the clock back on all that we've achieved?

The legislative process can be frustrating (trust me I know!), but Democrats have been fighting every single day for a better, progressive future for all of us. If we can expand our majority even a little and hold onto the House, we can build on that progress.

Of course if Republicans take back the Senate they will do exactly the opposite—try to unwind all of our advances, reach even deeper into ordinary Americans' pockets to enrich the super-wealthy, and rig elections to ensure they hold power no matter what the American people want.

What happens in the 2022 elections will make all the difference.

Chip in $3 now to help us grow our progressive Senate majority!

Ensuring a better, more progressive Senate is a big deal. We fought hard to elect majorities in 2020 to move us beyond the Trump era and toward a progressive future. 2022 must be about growing our Democratic majority to stop Trump and his Republican allies from taking us backward again.
