Democrats are simply asking for action on the broad set of bipartisan priorities before the Congress:/1 #ABetterDeal #DemPartyPlatform #Democrats #DemForce #DemPriorities
Keep government open: While Republicans control the House and the Senate, and President Trump said earlier this year that ‘our country needs a good shutdown,’ Democrats want to keep government open./2

Raise the caps: Democrats want a strong national defense. We also need an equal increase in our domestic budget, which includes critical national security functions and commitments to hard working families. #ABetterDeal #DemPriorities #DemsWork4USA
One-third of the non-defense domestic budget goes to national security – to veterans, homeland security, the State Department, and Justice Department counterterrorism initiatives./4
Funding for the opioid epidemic: Democrats are pushing to give communities the resources they need to fight the opioid epidemic, which is inflicting a savage daily toll on Americans in every corner of the country./5

Additional veterans funding: Democrats are urging Republicans to join us to provide urgently needed resources to veterans facing a dire shortfall at the VA, meeting our responsibility to ensure no veteran is left behind or denied the care and opportunities they deserve /6
CHIP and Community Health Centers: Democrats are calling for an immediate reauthorization of these vital initiatives – one that does not steal from the health care of other children./7 #CHIP #CommunityHealth #DemPriorities
Emergency disaster funding for all hurricane- and wildfire-impacted communities: Democrats are pressing for the urgently needed funds to heal the communities in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Island and all those impacted by wildfires./8 #DisasterRelief
Saving Americans’ endangered pensions: Millions of hard-working Americans’ pensions are at risk, and Democrats are calling for bipartisan action to enact a responsible reform plan, introduced by Ranking Member Neal, that ensures these struggling pension plans will keep going./9
Pass the bipartisan DREAM Act: Democrats remain adamant that Congress must vote on the bipartisan DREAM Act before the end of the year./10 #DREAMAct #Democrats #ABetterDeal
Each of Democrats’ priorities has broad bipartisan support. Each would pass if allowed an up-or-down vote on the floor of the House. Instead of pushing our nation into needless crisis, Republicans should join us to meet the needs of the American people and keep government open/11
