Congratulations to Democrats on Tuesdays Elections! More Victories Certain to Follow

Congratulations to Democrats on their massive victory earlier this week!

 

Nationwide, voters have shown they are fed up with being ignored by the Republicans in Congress, they are sick of bigotry and hate being endorsed by our leaders and our President, and they are demanding better lives, laws, and leaders.  Tuesday’s elections prove that the people are ready for change, and will not be ignored! 

 

From Montana’s anti-refugee mayoral candidate losing to a refugee, a transphobic delegate in Virginia losing to a transgender woman, to a pro-confederacy statue candidate for governor losing to one vowing to tear them down, Tuesday was a referendum nationwide on Trumpism and the big-money fueled congressional GOP.  The people of this nation have made it clear that these beliefs are not what Americans stand for, and will not be tolerated in elected officials.

 

We look forward to the upcoming Alabama race, where we’re excited to see the people of Alabama choose the upstanding crusader for justice and civil rights Doug Jones for their next Senator.  The choice between him and his truly deplorable rival could not be more clear.

The Congressional and senate healthcare bill is the meanest legislation to come out of Washington

The Congressional and senate healthcare bill is the meanest legislation to come out of Washington, D. C. in a long time.  Only 26% of the population according to the latest Wall Street Journal Poll believes that this healthcare bill is better than the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare.)  

These two bills will strip more than $800 billion dollars from Medicaid, take away federal funding for Planned Parenthood, increase insurance cost for families, the disabled and seniors, while increasing tax breaks to the wealthy and insurance companies.  

Nursing home and hospital emergency rooms depend on Medicaid to subsidize those who have no resources.  This bill destroys all safety nets for the underprivileged.  

The Pope said do unto others as you would have them do unto you, I guess the authors of this bill thought he meant the wealthy and insurance companies should be given protection.

Choice Act weakens the DODD-Frank Act regarding financial regulations

The latest newsletter put out by Congressman Barton addresses the Choice Act which weakens the DODD-Frank Act regarding financial regulations.  

He talks about how it strengthens community banks which I support.  He failed to mention that this act will take away support for consumers through the Consumer Financial Protection Agency which was started by Senator Elizabeth Warren before she became a senator.  

This agency is one of the few government agencies that assist consumers when they are being overwhelmed by predatory banks, mortgage companies and payday lenders.  

This act leaves no choice for consumers to receive free support and assistance when they are dealing with financial predators.  

Who is looking out for working families in TX District 6?

Congressman Scalise

We are saddened by the shooting of Congressman Scalise as well as an aide and two police officers during the Republican Baseball practice prior to the Annual Bi-partisan Baseball game.  We pray for their healing and full recovery and are grateful that our current Congressman Joe Barton and his family were not injured.
