Fighting Back: They are all our children – “If you come near our cubs, you’ve got a problem.”

    The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii. “These are not normal times. On issue after issue, Donald Trump creates a crisis, blames others for what’s happening, and uses the ensuing chaos to demand a legislative solution that often harms even more people. Democrats are calling on President Trump to use his executive authority to reunite the 2,400 separated children with their parents. We are calling on him to resolve many other problems his executive order created. And we are calling on his administration to stop its sabotage of our health care system and work with us on a bipartisan basis to protect and improve our health care system.” (CSPAN link to Weekly Democratic Address: here) ×CloseYou need to login in order to like this post: click here

“What happened to our beautiful party … the one built on the Southern Strategy, whistled to in Philadelphia MS, powered by the hateful racist rhetoric of Lee Atwater, and dedicated to crushing the poor, women, people of color, and the elderly??? We must reclaim it from the racist misogynist so that we can get back to the noble task of granny-killing, poor-starving, and sick-kicking Ryanism!”
