Look what you did!

This has been a really good week for progressive wins.  First, Obamacare, now marriage equality. As you celebrate, take a minute to look back at all the small wins you helped us make possible along the way. In early 2013, haters in the legislature blocked another marriage equality bill in the legislature. So in March we (you, me and all of our ProgressNow supporters) helped to elevate Mayor Coss and Geno Zamora’s new legal strategy to recognize equality once and for all.  
In July, conservatives in Roswell tried to pass local laws against equality, and we raised the alarm and helped you organize to stop it.

US Supreme Court affirms Obamacare. Again.

The US Supreme Court sent a clear message to Republicans in Congress this morning: Obamacare is here to stay. Chief Justice John Roberts joined 5 other traditionally more liberal justices in upholding provisions that provide subsidies for low and middle-income Americans who seek health insurance through state-based exchanges. “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them,” Chief Justice Roberts said in the majority opinion. He was joined by Justices Kennedy, Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan. Today’s decision the Supreme Court has dealt a major blow to Republican efforts to invalidate the president’s signature domestic policy achievement, to date.
