In Washington DC, there are leaders... and then there's everyone else.You can click here to donate to Schatz and Honda's campaigns:
We all know Elizabeth Warren is a leader. But you should also know about first-term Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Representative Mike Honda (D-CA).
Sen. Schatz and Rep. Honda are leading the fight to EXPAND Social Security -- and are being challenged in primaries by more conservative Democrats willing to CUT Social Security.
These leaders stood with us recently at local events in support of increasing Social Security benefits. Can you stand with them and donate $3 to their campaigns?Way before it was cool, Mike Honda joined Reps. Alan Grayson and Mark Takano in promising to vote against any cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits.
(They made it cool. 50 Representatives have now made concrete promises.) Mike Honda is also an original co-sponsor of a new bill to EXPAND Social Security benefits.Brian Schatz was Lt. Governor and was appointed by Hawaii's progressive governor to fill a vacant Senate seat last year. He's up for election in 2014.
When Senators Tom Harkin and Mark Begich launched the campaign to INCREASE Social Security benefits, Brian Schatz was right there with them. (We're working with these senators to make this idea cool. Leadership!)
Their opponents refuse to promise to vote against cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits -- and are nowhere to be found on increasing benefits.
Reward two bold Social Security heroes for standing strong with us. Please donate $3 today:
Thanks for being a bold progressive -- and for rewarding bold leadership.
