Rep. Paul Ryan's speech to the Republican Convention tonight wasn't grounded in reality.

He leveled false attack after false attack against the President, while neglecting to give a single idea for how to move our country forward.

He also didn't mention that the Romney-Ryan plan would turn Medicare into a voucher program to pay for tax cuts for millionaires, or that their promise to repeal Obamacare would take away access to health care for 32 million Americans. And don't even get me started on how they want to end a woman's right to make her own health care decisions.

If this extreme Republican vision for our country scares you as much as it does me, donate $X or more now to help Democrats fight back before tomorrow's fundraising deadline.

There are only 68 days left until Election Day we're in the home stretch, and every day between now and then is critically important.

What's more we have our most important fundraising deadline yet tomorrow at midnight. And how much we raise before then will determine whether or not Democrats have the resources to beat Romney, Ryan, and Republicans across the country.

It's time for us to put our money where our mouths are and call Romney and Ryan out on their blatant lies and misrepresentations. But we need your help to do that.

Donate $X or more today:
