Stand with Local 100 for a Democratic Controlled U.S. Congress
In Houston Nancy Pelosi calls for Democrats to fight for Social Security, Medicaid & Medicare
Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi visited Houston on Monday August 8th at the invitation of Congressman Al Green and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Local 100 members where in attendance to here her speak about saving Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare from the ravishment by the Republican controlled U. S. Congress.
It was clear from her speech that the battle lines are being drawn for a major conflict between Congressional Democrats and Republicans during the 2012 elections. She said, “Voters need to understand that if the Republican party gets it way the social safety net of the last 60 years will be gone and the ways of the robber barons of the 1920 will be the new reality.”
It is true that all Local 100 members pay a higher tax rate on their income than the millionaires and billionaires of the republican party. The Bush tax cuts are the main reason our tax system is so wrong and until those tax cuts are gone will there be justice in the tax system for all Americans.
It will be your god given responsibility to be sure to vote in 2012 for a Democratic controlled Congress and Senate and for the re-election of President Obama. We need to send a message to the Republican party to keep their hands off of Social Security Medicare, Medicaid and to tax the rich their fair share. Most importantly we need to bring the troops home from both wars and spend those billions on revitalizing our country. Stand with Local 100 for a Democratic controlled U.S. Congress.
