Looking back, 2012 was a year of victories for USAction, both large and small. And as progressives, we have so much to be proud of.
On November 6th we re-elected President Obama and made the Democratic Senate more progressive with champions like Tammy Baldwin, Sherrod Brown and Elizabeth Warren. We fought back attempts to cut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security benefits in the fiscal showdown. We changed the conversation on wasteful Pentagon spending. And we raised taxes on the top 1%, the first time in decades that we’ve overcome the GOP’s rigid anti-tax, anti-government extremism. And we couldn’t have done it without people like you, so thank you.
Now, the showdown continues. And we’ll need your support each step of the way. As we gear up for new challenges, we need your input on what’s important to you. Help shape the campaigns our network of over 500,000 activists work on every day by filling out our quick member survey. Question 1 is below, just click your answer to get started.

- Social Insurance – Strengthen Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security.
- Tax Fairness – Make corporations and the wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.
- Cut Wasteful Pentagon Spending – Rein in the bloated Pentagon budget and protect our troops.
