Dave Reichert: Why won’t you debate


After opposing equal pay for women, marriage equality, and a fair minimum wage, and after wasting 24 billion taxpayer dollars shutting down the government, is it any wonder he is shying away from the public eye?

He should be afraid to debate that record. That’s why I’m challenging Dave Reichert for Congress.

I believe it is the responsibility of any person seeking elected office to stand up and debate the issues. If you can’t explain your positions then you haven’t earned your seat.

Instead, Reichert chooses to ignore constituents and marches in lockstep with Tea Party extremists. The people of the 8th Congressional District deserve answers. Click here to add your voice and demand Dave Reichert debate. 

I’ll debate Dave anywhere, anytime. I’m not afraid to talk about the values I believe in: equality, economic fairness, and an end to gridlock.

Our district is one of only 17 districts in the entire country where President Obama won and a Republican congressman holds office. We can turn this district blue with your help. We can make sure our country has a congress that wants to work, not obstruct.

I need you, my fellow Democrat, to support our campaign by signing our petition demanding that Reichert participate in a debate this fall.

The people of the 8th district need your help and I know we can count on you.

PS – This is going to be a close election and we need your help. Please consider contributing to our campaign to turn the 8th CD blue!

When Women Succeed America does


by Nancy Pelosi ~~ 6/6/2014

I just had the pleasure of joining my fellow Democratic women in Congress on a “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds” bus tour from Seneca Falls, NY down to Boston, over through Ohio, and all the way to Chicago.

It was an exceptional opportunity to hear directly from hard-working women about the obstacles they face, and discuss the real possibilities for action. After this trip, I’m more confident than ever that our Women’s Economic Agenda would be a great start in unleashing the power of women.

what do you think?

“When women succeed, America succeeds” is not just a title for our economic agenda for women and families, it’s a statement of fact.

Together, we can make the progress that we need — raising the minimum wage, passing equal pay legislation, guaranteeing paid family and sick leave, creating quality job opportunities, and promoting affordable child care.

That’s why it was so fitting that we launched our “Women on a Roll” tour in Seneca Falls, home of the first Women’s Rights Convention which was held in 1848. They had a dream, they had a vision, they had a plan and they got it done — that is what we have to do.

I hope you’ll be a part of this.
