  • Michelle Obama: “Chip in to protect Obamacare”

    First Lady Michelle Obama sent an email to supporters urging them to chip in to support Democrats protecting Obamacare. Here's what she had to say:

    Friend --

    Earlier this month, because of what you did, it became illegal for insurance companies to discriminate against the up to 129 million Americans living with pre-existing conditions. Young Americans are able to stay on their parents' health care plans as they get on their feet, and we can now know that our insurance companies won't put lifetime caps on our coverage.

    You should be so proud of that. That happened because you organized, you talked to your friends and neighbors, and you chipped in what you could, when you could, to elect Barack and a Congress who supported his agenda.

    Today, I'm asking you to do it again.

    So before Barack gives his State of the Union address tomorrow, chip in $10 or more and help protect Obamacare:

    Thank you so much,

    Michelle

    Friend --

    America's First Lady -- a woman I'm lucky to call a friend -- is turning 50 today, and more than anything, I want to make sure she understands just how much she is loved.

    So will you join me (and more than 200,000 folks across the country) and wish her a happy birthday?

    Sign the card:

    It's not every day our fabulous FLOTUS turns 50, so let's all just take a moment to make it special.

    Michelle, if you're reading this: It's gonna be a helluva year, and we're wishing you the best!

    Here's to Michelle,

  • Michelle Obama: “Thank you, so much”

    Michelle Obama sent an email reflecting on President Obama's victory one year ago today and urged supporters to stand with Democrats in the year ahead. Here's what she had to say:

    Friend --

    One year ago, all of our hard work and sacrifice paid off, and we made sure Barack got a second term as president to finish the work all of us started together.

    I didn't just support him because he's my husband -- I supported him because I believe in his vision to lead this country forward and create a better future for our two girls.

    Everyone who stood with Barack had their own reasons for doing so, whether it was to rebuild an economy that works for the middle class, to follow through on the promise of affordable health care, or to improve access to higher education. We all had something that drove us, and we came together to get the job done.

    But just as none of us could elect Barack on our own, he can't finish the job by himself. He needs leaders in Congress and in state capitals around the nation to help him continue moving our country forward.

    So today, a year after Barack was elected to his second term, I'm renewing my commitment to support a group of leaders who share Barack's values. I hope you will join me in putting your support behind Democrats in the year to come:

    Thank you for your faith in us, last year and in the years ahead,

    Michelle

    P.S. -- I'm still fired up, and I'm still ready to go. Are you?

  • Michelle Obama: “Barack needs your help”

    In advance of the FEC's End of Quarter deadline, First Lady Michelle Obama sent the following email to supporters encouraging them to get involved. 

    You're never more important than you are at times like these, and here's why.

    When Barack is in a tough negotiation with Republicans in Congress, he needs to know that his supporters are with him -- that you're ready to do whatever it takes.

    So here's the thing: if you chip in to support Democrats before the critical fundraising deadline on Monday, you won't just be building an organization that can help elect Democrats who are going to support Barack. You're showing Barack that you're in his corner -- that you've got his back.

    And right now, with all that's happening, that really matters.

    Chip in $3 or more to support Barack and his Democratic allies:

    Thanks,

    Michelle

    P.S. -- So much is at stake right now. Please chip in before Monday at midnight.

  • Sign Michelle Obama’s Mother’s Day Card

    In honor of Mother's Day, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz sent the following email to supporters asking them to sign a special Mother's Day card for Michelle Obama.

    Friend --

    When I first came to Washington in 2005, there weren't a lot of people who understood why I carried around crayons in my purse.

    You see, there weren't all that many moms with young kids working in Congress -- not many people who understood what it was like balancing taking care of my constituents with taking care of my three kids, Jake, Rebecca, and Shelby.

    So I was excited when Michelle Obama became the first mother in years to have young children in the White House. In the time since, I've been incredibly inspired by how she's managed to balance her duties as First Lady with what she says is her most important job -- being Sasha and Malia's mom.

    This Mother's Day, I want to let the First Lady know how much she's admired and appreciated.

    Join me, and add your name to my card wishing the First Lady a happy Mother's Day.

    Over the past few years, the First Lady has done so much to help kids, veterans, and military families -- and she's raising two strong and smart daughters while doing it.

    We're lucky to have Michelle Obama as our First Lady, and Sasha and Malia are lucky to have her as a mom.

    Wish her a happy Mother's Day today.

    Thanks,

    Debbie

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz
    Chair
    Democratic National Committee

    P.S. -- If you haven't yet, make sure to pick up a card for your own mom!
