Mitch McConnell is refusing to bring the legislation to reopen the government to the Senate floor for a vote, so we're raising $25,000 – $1k for every day of the shutdown – to get him out of office.

For those keeping score: 800,000 Americans are still without pay.
  • Many are missing credit card and mortgage payments, filing for unemployment, or dipping into their kids’ college savings.
  • Airport lines are growing as TSA workers call out of work.
  • Food inspections have halted for foods like produce, cereals, and cheese.
  • Prison guards are working overtime at one of the most dangerous federal jobs in America.
  • Without staff, national parks like Joshua Tree have been devastated by trash and vandalism.
  • More than 42,000 members of the Coast Guard are working without pay, providing critical national security and lifesaving duties.
  • And Secret Service agents, including those who protect Trump, are working without pay.

All because Trump wants his border wall funding.

As Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell has the power to put an end to it all – but he's nowhere to be found. According to The Intercept, “all McConnell would have to do to open the government would be to put the same bill that the Senate already passed back on the floor.”

But he’s up for reelection in 2020 and needs Trump’s support to make it through the primary.

McConnell’s not just sitting on the sidelines either… by refusing votes on bills funding the government that have passed the House, he’s actively shielding Trump from having to veto them. He’s choosing Trump and the border wall over the 800,000 federal workers and Americans across the country who are suffering amid the government shutdown.

Help send Mitch a message: Stop standing in the way of reopening the government and bring a bill to the floor to allow furloughed federal employees to go back to work and receive the pay they deserve. Americans deserve to have a say in this matter, as do our elected senators.

*** Hold Senator McConnell accountable for his lack of leadership by funding the 2020 Democratic Nominee who will run for his U.S. Senate seat in Kentucky. Your donation can help get McConnell out of office once and for all.

    “He doesn't care about the people of Kentucky, doesn't care about this country, actively subverts the constitution, enables Russian meddling in our elections, covers for a corrupt president, sells himself and this country to the highest bidder, both foreign and domestic... In summary, he is a seeping hairy mole on on the buttcheek of this country, and it's time we all gather together to perform the excision.”

    “McConnell has to go. Not really sure what his endgame is, but he has been too corrosive and destructive to continue as a member of government. He is responsible for some of the most egregious affronts to our democracy in its history. Vote him OUT.”

    “He is refusing to vote on anything that will benefit the people of this country. He prefers to lick the boots of our lying, cheating president. He is out of touch and needs to go.”

    “Mitch and the other Republican Co-Conspirators worked together to obstruct justice and protect the Russian White House! These guys claimed to be "right to life" but in 2 years that they held the Russian White House, the Senate, House, Supreme Court, they chose to legislate a Trillion Dollar TAX Break for the RICH, dismantled health care for the vulnerable, voted for a Supreme Court Judge accused of attempted rape, imprisoned poor migrant children at the border, and destroyed our relationships with our allies around the world. What a record, and still Abortion is the law of the land - the main reason Evangelicals voted for Trump and these Republican Co-Conspirators in the first place. Now that the House is Democrat Controlled, suddenly they say they want anti-abortion legislation - just when they KNOW there is NO WAY it will pass Congress. These guys were NEVER AGAINST abortion, and still are not, but the Evangelicals will fall for their TRICKERY. Yep, that's right they've convinced the EVANGELICALS that TRUMP is a "man of God". They played the Evangelicals for fools. They used the Christian vote to get what they wanted, the legislation they did pass when they had full control. They also support a budget for over a trillion dollars in cuts to medicaid and medicare - read the Republican Dream Budget online. I'm happy to endorse Mitch's opponent! We need a new Senator who CARES about the People he represents!”

    “McConnell has continuously broken promises to everyone in KY. He stood by & refused to put a vote on the floor to end the gov’t shutdown. He doesn’t have the best interest of the people of Kentucky. Putin’s 2nd hand man donated 1.5 million dollars to McConnell’s PAC. He receives NRA money that also has massive donations from Russians. He told coal miners that they were going back to work when Trump signed an EO. They’ve not gone back to work. McConnell tried to kill the ACA and end health insurance for those of us who depend on it. It would also end benefits for black lung disease for coal miners & there survives. It’s past time to #DitchMitch2020.”
