This week, House and Senate Democrats are unveiling two bold, ambitious, new planks of our A Better Deal agenda: A Better Deal for Our Teachers and Students, and A Better Deal for Our Democracy.1 #ABetterDeal #BlueWave2018 #DemPartyPlatform
Education is the catalyst for economic mobility, and the engine of progress in our nation. Yet, America’s teachers are underpaid, our schools are underfunded and our children are too often denied the good, public education they need to succeed. 2 #ABetterDeal #Education
Today, teacher’s wages are a full 17 percent lower than comparable workers – forcing nearly one in every five full-time teachers to work a second job to make ends meet. 3 #ABetterDeal #Education #Teachers #DemsWork4USA

Republicans have utterly broken their promises to fight for the forgotten American, instead rewarding the wealthy and well-connected at the expense of middle class and working families, 10
...undermining every American’s right to be heard at the ballot box and failing to protect our election systems from foreign and domestic attack. 11

#Democrats will Strengthen our Nation’s Ethics Laws to Fight Special Interests – ending the revolving door in Washington and reining in the influence of high-powered insiders, lobbyists, big-money donors and the special interests driving Washington’s agenda;14 #ABetterDeal
#Democrats will Fix our Broken Campaign Finance System to Combat Big Money Influence – breaking the stranglehold on our democracy by wealthy and well-connected campaign donors and ending the scourge of unaccountable “dark money” unleashed in our system by Citizens United. 15
The American people continue to be left behind by big money lobbyists’ stranglehold on the Republican agenda – footing the bill for a GOP tax scam that hands massive windfalls to big corporations, Wall Street and the wealthiest 1 percent, 16 #ABetterDeal #GOPTaxScam #
