This May 17, California voters in the 36th congressional district in California will have a chance to elect a new U.S. Representative – and to correct the dysfunctional politics that Republicans have introduced to the U.S. Congress. Here we are, facing a shutdown of the American government – not by terrorists, but by Republicans who are insisting upon taking away the social safety net from working Americans.
In this special election, there’s one candidate who is consistently standing up against the Tea Party radicalization of American politics: Marcy Winograd.
Winograd announced today, “The gloves are off, with the GOP leadership declaring open warfare on America’s greatest safety nets for seniors. We need Democrats in Congress who are going to stand strong against these Republican attacks.”
We don’t need to wait until 2012 to take a stand against dangerous right wing politics in Congress. With Marcy Winograd’s help, we can take that stand today.
