Class warfare goes on in the U.S. right now. It looks like drug companies raising the price of insulin so that poor diabetics cannot afford to live. It looks like the rich getting $1 trillion in tax breaks while working people are thrown off food stamps and Medicaid.

Proud of all the Americans who showed up to vote yesterday, electing a set of hopeful, forward-thinking leaders primed to protect Medicaid, draw fair voting maps, and reduce gun violence. A great night for our country—one that’ll leave a lasting legacy.
