We all deserve to be able to have our health needs met without the mess that the insurance industry created. What can you do to help get us to a single payer system? Start by educating yourself with this town hall.

Join one of three candidates who are either progressive, independent, Democrat at the Tumwater Independence Day Parade. Victor will be sign waving and Tye and Tamborine will be in the parade.

Oust the Republican Jaime Herrera Beutler. She wants to ELIMINATE more regulations. She voted YES on Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2019 to give “Defense” a bigger piece of the pie at the expense of helping elderly, missing middle, houseless, disabled, veterans. In 2017 Beutler voted to SLASH funding from EPA.
Show the Republican Administration that people in Washington state do not want families that are fleeing violence, murder, and death to be separate. We resist the oppressive arresting of refugees and we won’t take it lying down.
Show Republican Administration that our Olympia community stands up for families. To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger, and poverty, is to re-violate them.

Momentum is building for more support and services for the Houseless in our community. We cannot depend on the federal government to help those who need help. We have to help at the city and county and state level. Speak up for the Houseless folks and speak to the Houseless.

Want to go back to the way things were when you were NOT insurable because you have a “pre-existing” medical condition? The Republican Administration is taking us there as the Attorney General refuses to defend the ACA Law (Obama-care) concerning so-called pre-existing conditions, in a crucial federal court case.
