Last weekend was supposed to be all about a nationwide protest by anti-abortion conservatives.
These are the largest protests in American history. The resistance to Donald Trump since his inauguration on January 20th has exceeded the expectations of the entire world, and is already remaking the story of Trump’s presidency. There has never been a President in our modern history so unpopular so soon after taking office. Every harmful action Trump takes is resounding answered by millions of Americans who declare with one voice that he does not speak for us.
Today, Donald Trump was sworn in as President of the United States.

Gardner doesn’t have a plan to replace Obamacare, and over 20 million Americans who depend on the health coverage they’ve obtained through the law could lose access.
First of all, thanks to everyone who has pledged their support to ProgressNow Colorado Education for Colorado Gives Day next Tuesday, December 6th! We’re grateful for your help as we fight for progressive solutions to the challenges our state faces.
Yesterday, a federal judge in Texas “temporarily” blocked President Barack Obama’s new overtime rules, which would have given millions of the hardest-working Americans a fairer deal for the long hours they put in.
