The unity of the labor movement was in evidence everywhere on Saturday, when hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of every single capital in America to stand with Wisconsin and demand an end to the attacks on workers. The nationwide show of solidarity on Saturday was sponsored by MoveOn.org, SEIU and dozens of other organizations.

We just launched a series of television ads in six congressional districts this morning, in support of Representatives in Congress who stood up to insurance companies and other special interests. The ads will start today in the districts of Reps. Periello (VA-05), Titus (NV-03), Markey (CO-XX), Boccieri (OH-16), Dahlkemper (PA-03), and Pomeroy (ND-AL).
It's happening everywhere. Across America, we've seen our insurance premium rates go up 3x as fast as wages--crushing small businesses and working families. SEIU has launched a new barrage of TV ads in partnership with Health Care For America Now (HCAN). The ads urge constituents to call their congressman and push for a "yes" vote. They're running in the districts of Reps. Jason Altmire (PA), Jim Costa (CA), Brad Ellsworth (IN), Betsy Markey (CO) and Earl Pomeroy (ND). View them here.
