Counteracting Donald Trump. Bolstering the Affordable Care Act. Publicly funding campaigns.

Those are the issues at stake for the Independent Democratic Conference in a video released Monday as the lawmakers in the breakaway bloc seek to re-affirm their support for liberal causes they believe has been lost in the pitched battle being waged by progressive advocacy groups to pressure them into forming a coalition with mainline Democrats.

The video features each of the eight members of the IDC discussing policies such as their support for issues like abortion rights and the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act, or GENDA.

All of the issues discussed by the IDC have more or less faced an uphill battle in the Republican-controlled Senate.

But the video also appears to serve as a challenge not to Republicans, whom the IDC has worked with since its inception in 2011, but to mainline Democrats to muster the needed votes for the issues.

“It’s time that we set the record straight,” IDC Leader Jeff Klein says in the video. “In the New York state Senate it takes 32 votes to pass a piece of legislation. It is time to call the roll.”

IDC lawmakers have long asserted the votes don’t exist in the Senate to pass a variety of liberal-friendly measures, such as supporting or strengthening abortion rights. At least one Democratic lawmaker, Sen. Ruben Diaz, now a city Council candidate, is staunchly opposed to abortion.

“It’s time that we let voters know who Democrats are,” Klein says, “and what they really stand for.”

The IDC-mainline Democrat feud took a new turn last week when it was revealed three IDC members had received stipends normally reserved for committee chairs. Senate Minority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins has called for an investigation of the arrangement; Klein and Majority Leader John Flanangan insisted no wrongdoing took place.

The Working Families Party, a longtime bete noir of the IDC, chided the conference in a statement, blaming the Republican control for the measures not passing. Republicans maintain a working majority in the Senate with the help of Brooklyn Sen. Simcha Felder, a Democrat who is not a member of the IDC, but conferences directly with the GOP.

“It’s good to see IDC members voicing support for critical progressive issues,” said Bill Lipton, New York State Director of the Working Families Party. “Whether we can pass them today, next month, or next year depends on whether Democrats from both conferences can unite to build a durable progressive majority. As long as Trump’s Republican Party controls the state senate, that will be impossible. We repeat our call on the IDC to immediately end their outrageous alliance with Senate Republicans.”

Updated: Senate Democrats in the mainline conference chimed in as well.

“I guess the IDC really likes pledges but they must have forgotten that just last week they pledged allegiance to the Senate GOP,” said spokesman Mike Murphy.

“They are hoping New Yorkers forget that they themselves all voted “no” on some of these exact issues and more, including crucial protections for Planned Parenthood, a single payer health plan, strong ethics, and voting reforms. I thought the whole creation of the IDC was to bring Republican votes to issues like these. Everyone already knows there are no bigger champions for all these issues than Senate Democrats. New Yorkers are fed up with the IDC’s gimmicks and their empowerment of Trump Republicans.”
