Get The Heck Out of Congress!
And elect a real progressive to represent WA District 10
Town Hall: “Get the Heck Out of Congress!”
Tuesday, May 16th, 2017, 7-9pm, at Traditions Fair Trade, Olympia.
Learn about Denny Heck’s voting record and discuss what we want from our Congressional representative. Meet Tamborine Borrelli, progressive independent running to replace Heck in 2018. All viewpoints welcome.
You probably already heard that Denny Heck opposes Medicare for All, even though a majority of Democratic representatives in Congress support it. But did you know that Denny Heck has also sided with the Republicans against the majority of his own party to cut $8.7 billion from food stamps, expedite natural gas exports, fund more fossil fuel research and development, reject protections for forests from dangerous logging practices, support the endless war on terror, for new “cruise missile” nuclear weapons, and multiple banking deregulation measures that have weakened Dodd-Frank? Denny has a well established record of putting corporate profits over people, and it’s not hard to see why. The banking and insurance industries are bankrolling his campaign, and he gets the vast majority of his support from the business community. If we are ever going to achieve the progressive change our nation and world so desperately needs, then we are going to have to replace Trump, the Republicans, and corrupt establishment Democrats in Congress with representatives who will reject corporate money, stand up to corporate power, and put people over profits.
