Here's some good news from yesterday via Sojo.net:
On August 3, the Senate failed to get the 60 votes required to end debate (prevent a filibuster) on the "trifecta" bill. This legislation (passed last week by the House) would raise the minimum wage, but only by also providing estate tax reform benefitting the wealthiest. The vote was 56-42. This was a victory, and your calls helped! Thank you for acting!
