Most of us could us a refresher. Here’s a 3 minute cartoon video, explaining the branches of government, their members, and their duties and actual limitations.

Turning Congress Blue (Democratic): The entire House of Representatives comes up for re-election every two, even-numbered years. Senators are up for re-election every 6 years. That means we can flip the House to begin to block Trump’s legislative priorities. Dems have signalled that, should they take control of the House in 2018, they will launch impeachment proceedings. Since Dems are only behind a few Senators, we only need a few more Democratic Senators in 2018 in order to flip the Senate, too, but we can’t afford to lose any of the Democratic Senate Seats we already have. A Democratic controlled Congress could obstruct Trump the way the GOP-controlled Congress obstructed Obama. We can do this! Governors are also important, because they influence state legislation. Trump plans to pass more power to the states on almost every issue, so the more Dem Governors we have, the better. Governors serve four years in office. (See FlipCongress section to Take Action!)
