Washington works great for the rich and powerful who can hire armies of lawyers and lobbyists, but it is not working very well for everyone else. America's once-solid middle class is on the ropes, and now Donald Trump and his administration seem determined to deliver the knockout punch. At this perilous moment in our country's history, it's time to fight back – and I'm looking for more people to join me.

Donald Trump won the Presidency under a Republican flag. But Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and the Republicans in Congress – and their way of doing business – were rejected. Rejected by their own primary voters, rejected during the campaign, and rejected in Tuesday's election.
That is Democrats' first job in this new era: We will stand up to bigotry. No compromises ever on this one.
If Donald Trump is ready to make good on his promise to get corruption out of politics, Then count me in. I will work as hard as I can. I will pull as many people as I can into the fight.

In addition, you permitted Mylan to avoid admission of wrongdoing, collected no additional penalties under the False Claims Act, and blocked other actions against the company that would have required greater accountability.

Wells Fargo might want to push the blame for the consequences of its fraudulent actions onto low-level employees, but the Department of Labor should stand up for workers.

That said, I accept full responsibility for all unethical sales practices in our retail banking business, and I am fully committed to doing everything possible to fix this issue, strengthen our culture, and take the necessary actions to restore our customers' trust.

There is a serious problem with senior management at Wells Fargo.

I believe that Donald taps into a deep anger that the American people feel and rightly feel.
I think people all across this country understand what's broken about this economy, what's broken about this country, that we now have a Washington that works for those who can hire armies of lobbyists and lawyers but its not working for the rest of America.

The next time someone uses a gun to kill one of us, a gun that we could have kept out of the hands of a terrorist, then members of this Congress will have blood on our hands.
