BREAKING: Supreme Court retirement

  News just broke that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is retiring. The reality of today’s politics is the moment a spot opens on the high court, there is no time for reflection. Right-wing media and the GOP’s dark money donors go into hyperdrive, so we must also spring into acti…

Re: Newt Gingrich

  Hey John, As you may have seen over the weekend, former Speaker of the House turned Fox News pundit, close Kevin McCarthy ally, and Trump propagandist — Newt Gingrich — made headlines threatening me and my colleagues personally. Gingrich threatened jail time for those who are invest…

How Adam endures the GOP’s attacks

  John — Adam is already facing intense attacks during the first month of an election year. This year has yet to fully ramp up, so this is only a sign of what's to come as we near the midterms. Kevin McCarthy, who will become the Republican Party’s Speaker of the House if they take ba…

The filibuster is not in the Constitution

  John, For more than a decade, Mitch McConnell and the Republican Party have weaponized and abused the filibuster to rule from the minority and block virtually every major piece of legislation introduced by Democrats. With Republican state lawmakers passing discriminatory voter suppr…

We’ve come so far in only a year

  John, Exactly one year ago, we inaugurated President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris into the White House after four long years of Donald Trump. Thank goodness. Millions of Americans breathed a sigh of relief knowing that dignity, honesty, and respect were restored to the Whi…

I fear our democracy can, and will, be lost if we don’t act

  John — the Senate filibuster is allowing the political minority of this country to exercise a debilitating and negative form of control over our legislative process. In short, it allows the minority to veto any priority of a majority of the American people. Indefinitely. If we are t…

Our place in history

  John — I wanted to share some thoughts as the Senate is set to debate voting rights and the filibuster this week. A few days ago, President Biden came to a Senate Caucus meeting to urge Senators to pass voting rights and not let the filibuster get in the way. After spending decades …

My priorities for the year

  John, As we begin a brand new year, I’m more determined than ever to protect our democracy and make progress on the policy issues most important to all Americans. In 2021, we accomplished so much necessary progress — from the American Rescue Plan to the massive Infrastructure Invest…

Campaigns are expensive.

  Hey there, John. Here’s a painfully honest email written by a real person. In order to power through this year, we have a big ask of you. We want you to become a monthly supporter of Adam. Before you make a final decision (or close this email!) please allow us a moment to explain wh…

A question for you...

  Let me ask you this question, John. If Republicans had been in the majority after the last presidential election, and Kevin McCarthy (a man who once sorted out Donald Trump’s Starbursts for him), were Speaker, do you believe he would have overturned the election? If your answer to t…

Hannity’s attack

  I wanted to share with you what Sean Hannity has said over the last few nights on his prime-time Fox News show: “[Schiff] is the single biggest purveyor of election fraud and lies in the history of this Republic.” “If I were Congressman Schiff, I’d think about another career.” “[McC…

Nothing is more important.

  Nothing is more important than the right to vote. Not the filibuster. Not this particular policy or that. Nothing. Protecting and expanding the right to vote is fundamental. It’s the foundational right upon which all others are built. And it is precisely why so many Republicans — in…

Kevin McCarthy’s threat today against me

  I want to preface this article headline I’m about to share with you with a caveat: Breitbart is a race-bating, despicable mouthpiece for the far-right and those looking to harness the anger of those on the fringes of politics. That being said… and maybe for that reason, Kevin McCart…

Lexi goes to Washington

  Over the holiday break, I was digging through my drawers to look at some old family photos. And this one was too good to keep to myself. In 2002, I brought my daughter Alexa (Lexi for short) to the Capitol with me for work. She was only four, but already had a better fashion sense t…

some thoughts

I don’t say this lightly

We need to get back on track

Max Rose
