Paulo Augusto
It looks like you got Paul Ryan's attention. And he's not happy.

The Speaker of the House forwarded the email Bernie sent to you to his entire fundraising list. 

You can see what he said below.

Paul Ryan really doesn't like that you donated more than $1.8 million in two days to take back the House and Senate (which is an AMAZING feat, and something for which we are so grateful). 

He even put in a big, red button when he forwarded Bernie's email that says "HELP STOP SANDERS."

We've got their attention. Now let's show what we really can do.

The incredible contributions you've made in the last two days are completely changing the dynamics of these races for Congress. 

We are so grateful, because your support means campaigns can train more volunteers, talk to more voters, and turn out more people on Election Day.

Paul Ryan knows the tremendous impact you're having, and he's scared. Let's keep it going.

In solidarity,
Team Bernie

I spoke last week about what would happen if we lose our majority in Congress. 
It looks like Bernie Sanders was listening, because a staffer showed me the message he sent to his supporters yesterday....

Read it and find out why it is so important to hold the House and Senate this November.

Bottom line: we must stop Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, and the Progressive Democrats from taking over Congress. 

Please consider making a donation today to stop this dangerous, progressive agenda.

Help Stop Sanders
Thank you.
Let’s do this,
Paul Ryan
House Speaker

Sisters and Brothers,

                 I heard what Paul Ryan said about me:

that if the Republicans lose the Senate, I will be the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee.

That sounds like a very good idea to me. It means that we can establish priorities for working people, and not just the billionaire class.

What would be equally exciting is if the Democrats took back the House, and Congressman Ryan was no longer Speaker.

 That would mean the clearest possible path to enact our agenda – the most progressive agenda of any party in American history.

In the last day, you have responded tremendously to our call to support four leaders who will help shift the balance of the Senate. More than 20,000 people have contributed more than $900,000 to ten candidates who are inspired by the political revolution.

During our campaign we pushed ourselves to reach goals that many thought impossible. That is why we set a very big, very audacious goal that we didn't know if we could reach, but that we thought it was very important to try. 

But you're about to smash that $1 million goal.

So, we're going to need a bigger goal.

Help us reach $2 million raised for House and Senate candidates
Consider for a moment the power that exists in the U.S. Senate. 

Right now, the Republican majority is using their power to block any meaningful action on addressing income inequality or climate change. 

In addition, without a Democratic majority the Senate is refusing to confirm federal judges and, incredibly, has left open a critical seat on the Supreme Court.

With a Democratic majority, we can change all of that.

 What Paul Ryan is specifically afraid of is the power of the budget committee. 
That committee defines the spending priorities of the entire government. The work of that committee says how much revenue the government should have, and where its money should go.

I have some thoughts on how the government should allocate its spending.

 I'm sure you do, too.

The first step to being able to enact our progressive agenda is taking back the Senate.

 And if we take back the House... well, the sky is the limit for what we can achieve.

Thank you for all you do.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders
