    This is worth investing in

    More than half a million people own a piece of what we're building.

    It's a time to chip in and support a great cause too. So many great groups across the country are worth your time and money—I hope you consider OFA among them. Take a moment to invest in this grassroots movement—chip in whatever you can today.

  • President Obama: "Will you commit to finish what you started with OFA?"

    If you're not done fighting for change, add your name.

    "Two years: That's all the time I have left as your president.

    I know what I'm going to be fighting for until I leave this office.

    And the work you do now with OFA -- whatever it is that you choose to fight for -- will define what we can achieve together in that time."

    The President's message to OFA:

  • Add your name—refuse to be cynical

    President Obama put it this way: "Cynicism is a choice—and hope is a better choice."

    It's easy to get discouraged about our chances of making progress. After all, this has been the least productive Congress in modern history, thanks to some extreme voices in the House who seek gridlock.Today, in spite of that, I'm asking you not to be cynical—because that only makes those voices stronger.

  • A little perspective (and a free gift)

    So where should we send this sticker?

    The other day, someone came up to me and said, "Remember Sarah Palin's death panels?"

    Five years ago, some folks were saying our chances of passing health care reform were destroyed—except that isn't what happened at all. When Washington insiders decided the fight was over, people like you refused to believe it, and kept on organizing.

  • So, this just happened

    They actually went through with it.

    Speaker John Boehner and House leaders just voted to sue President Obama—for doing his job. Of all the things the House could actually vote on before they leave for a 5-week break, this is what they decided to do.

  • Mic drop from President Obama

    John Boehner just has to be kidding.

    This week, our Speaker of the House, John Boehner, announced he's planning to sue President Obama over the executive actions he's taken as president. Yes, you read that right. Well, here's what President Obama had to say about it.
