Kerry Washington:

"Today there are people trying take away rights that our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers fought for: our right to vote, our right to choose, affordable quality education, equal pay, access to health care. We the people can’t let that happen."

Eva Longoria:

"Mitt Romney would raise taxes on middle-class families to cut his own–and mine. That’s not who we are as a nation, and here’s why: The Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy’s flipping burgers–she needed a tax break. But the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not."
