THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT!

Under this President, and against stiff Congressional and big-money resistance, Democrats are making a difference for Americans. Read about recent major accomplishments and goals of President Obama and the national Democratic Party. See if you can find a pattern. You'll see why big money is trying so hard to stop the Progressive agenda and why we must use the ballot box to prevent them from doing so. We did it in 2008 and 2012. This November, we need to re-double our efforts for the American people:
