================================ 

The GOP in Congress doesn’t think ICE and Border Patrol have too much power over people, so they’re ready to let anyone become an immigration enforcement or border officer–no polygraph required!  And there’s more.  

Net Neutrality under attack!  Tell Congress to leave it alone!!

Don’t think you care?  You will when you can’t get cable or satellite TV, because the internet is too slow.  Or, when your smart phone won’t download your emails or an important web site you need because you didn’t agree to a 300%, 400%, 500% (?) increase in your cell phone bill.  When companies start bidding up prices to get a piece of the bandwidth, everyone else loses!

 Rep McSally…How Could You?!

Trump’s Credibility Crumbling

From CNN, Mar 21, 2017:  Monday was a turning point for Donald Trump’s credibility. He had fibbed about crowd numbers, and pushed crazy conspiracy stories aboutillegal voters. But continuing to claim that former President Obama ordered the wiretapping of Trump Tower, even after the sitting FBI and NSA directors made clear it was false, was a new low.

From NYTimes, Mar 20, 2017:  The ninth week of Donald Trump’s presidency began with the F.B.I. director calling him a liar.  [more]
      But the current president of the United States lies. He lies in ways that no American politician ever has before. He has lied about —
Hosted Our Democratic Congressman

Rep. Tom O’Halleran and his wife visited with a packed house of voters from SaddleBrooke, Oracle, Oro Valley and  Catalina on Sunday afternoon, March 5th.  After a few minutes of introductory words, he spent 30 minutes answering questions about what’s really going on in D.C.  As the meeting closed, he was given a standing ovation.

Keep Up the Pressure!!

There are lots of us quietly taking action after action.

Don’t lose focus.  Pace yourself.  And don’t follow “the shiny object” (wiretapping accusations, etc.) they are waving in front of you.  We will help you keep the focus on the right places.  Visit our Action Center page.  See how to contact our State legislators and National representatives under our Links You Can Use page.

Democratic groups are rising up all over Arizona.  Every Democratic leader in the State is being asked to reach out and help another group get started or give a group some guidance or focus on taking action.

Join the Arizona Democrats’ Rapid Response team, and get emails about what’s happening and what you can do and say to resist and restore reason.

The Arizona Legislature is only in session for approximately 100 days, until about the end of April.  Spend some of your time contacting your legislators and telling them what you expect from them:

– “Support public, district schools and our teachers, so they can give our
        children the best possible educational opportunities.”
– “Make voting easy and accessible for everyone, including young people and
      the disadvantaged.  That’s the democracy that America represents!”
– “Close corporate loopholes in our state tax code and start investing those
       dollars into our schools and infrastructure.  It will put people to work and
       will prepare our children for the dynamic economy.  The thriving state that
       Arizona will become will attract new businesses and grow even more.”
Call one of your members of Congress every day!  Just make a schedule to call Sen. Flake; then Sen. McCain, then Congressman O’Halleran.  Download the App “5 Calls” to your smart phone.  It will help you make it easy.
