Dear Friend,

It disgusts me every time I see it. As Democrats work with President Obama to dig us out of a deep hole and build our country up, right-wing Republicans have an entirely different goal: Force his failure. Then retake political power.

Even if they’ve supported it in the past, now if it’s part of our president’s agenda, Republicans are dead-set against it. They figure if they kill a few more bills, it’s smooth sailing in November. Democrats will fall, and President Obama will fail. That, in a nutshell, is the Republican plan. We’ve seen it before - remember how they tried to break President Bill Clinton?


Now, it’s our turn to say “no.”

Republicans are counting on big, big corporate money thanks to the conservative Supreme Court’s decision. Democrats are depending on you. The DSCC needs your help to raise $71,074 by tomorrow’s FEC deadline. Every dollar you give will help even out the playing field for our candidates. Their success helps ensure President Obama’s - and America’s - success.

I know very well what happens when Republicans get their shadowy outside assistance to spread their smears. And they’ll have plenty of help this time. With the right-wing fringe screaming about “death panels” and “socialism,” and corporate cronies allowed to spend an unlimited amount of money in support of candidates thanks to the Citizens United ruling, Democrats must be ready to fight. When they attack, we must immediately punch back.

That takes resources. We have great candidates, superb grassroots supporters and loads of experience in getting Democrats elected. But if the DSCC doesn’t meet each and every fundraising goal, none of that will matter. Our message will be lost in their blizzard of falsehoods, and President Obama will pay the price.

The Republicans have a plan. But the Republicans didn’t plan on this: We worked too hard to let them destroy President Obama. He’s our president. His goals are our goals. And we couldn’t be more proud of the job he’s doing.

They’re coming after him. But they have to get through us first.

Sen. John Kerry
