The Stakes Have Never Been Higher.

In the face of existential emergencies to humanity, Common Dreams is facing other potentially fatal threats to our funding model. Please support our nonprofit journalism and help us reach our $75,000 Mid-Year Campaign goal.

'Normal' is killing us.

Donald Trump is out of the White House. COVID-19 is fading, at least in wealthier nations. The world, they say, is returning to “normal.” That’s the narrative that the corporate media is selling. But there’s a problem: “normal” is destroying our planet, threatening our democracies, concentrating massive wealth in a tiny elite, and leaving billions of people without access to life-saving vaccines amid a deadly pandemic. Here at Common Dreams, we refuse to accept any of this as “normal.” Common Dreams just launched our Mid-Year Campaign to make sure we have the funding we need to keep the progressive, independent journalism of Common Dreams alive. Whatever you can afford—no amount is too large or too small—please donate today to support our nonprofit, people-powered journalism and help us meet our goal.

CREDO Statement on Trumpcare Delay

 
WASHINGTON -

CREDO released the statement below in response to reports that the Senate will not vote on Trumpcare until after the July 4 recess:

“This is a key win in a long fight,” said CREDO Political Director Murshed Zaheed. "The momentum in the fight over health care in the United States is on the side of  the anti-Trump resistance,” Zaheed continued. “The fact is, Trumpcare is a nightmare for Americans families now, and it will still be a nightmare after the July 4 recess.”

“CREDO will escalate pressure on Republican senators during the recess and until Trumpcare is dead,” Zaheed continued. “Through grassroots campaigning and multi-channel digital campaigns, we’ll make it clear to senators that stealing Americans’ health care to provide tax cuts for the rich is a political liability they can’t afford.”

“CREDO will continue fighting until we have stopped Trumpcare once and for all,” he added.

CREDO is conducting a full court press in opposition to Trumpcare:

  • Purchased strategically placed #ResistTrumpcare billboards in 5 states.
  • Generated 45,000+ phone calls to congressional offices.
  • Produced a series of hard hitting videos that have been viewed 20 million times.
  • Collected 650,000+ anti-Trumpcare petition signatures.
  • Deployed geotargeted #ResistTrumpcare Snapchat filters in Washington, D.C. and 8 states.
