PCDP Chair Calls For President’s Immediate Removal

“Trump encouraged a terrorist mob to rampage through the Capitol,” Heidler said. “He is unfit to hold the nation’s highest office and must be removed. At least four Americans died during the riot and at least 360,000 Americans have died of COVID-19. Trump is responsible for both, and sadly all four Republican U.S. Representatives are complicit.’’

Notes From The Chair – Transition of Leadership

Two years ago, as a relative unknown, I asked for the chance to lead PCDP in a new direction. You gave me that vote of confidence, for which I will always be grateful. I hope I have fulfilled your expectations.

Now, as my term winds down, I’m reflecting on the challenges we faced, the lessons we learned, the successes we had, and where we fell short. But first, I must thank so many people who volunteered for our party and did the hard work.

Medicare for All Means Healthcare for All

By Eve Shapiro, M.D. and Richard Wiebe*

As paychecks disappear for millions of Americans, so does their health insurance — at the worst possible time.  

The COVID-19 pandemic exposes the most fundamental flaw of the for-profit health insurance system:  Lose your job, lose your healthcare. Over 44 million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits; the Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that 27 million will lose their health insurance.

Medicare for All means healthcare for all – with or without a job.  It operates under the principle that healthcare is a right, not a privilege reserved for those who can afford it.  When you get sick, you go to the doctor with no worries about deductibles and co-payments.

Volunteer Spotlight | Joanie Allison

Volunteer Spotlight | Joanie Allison

By Richard Wiebe

 Golfers Joanie and Jim Allison grew to love Tucson during their February visits to Dove Mountain’s Accenture Match Play Championship golf tournament. When asked about her proficiency as a golfer, Joanie would only say the greenskeepers of Alexandria, VA, celebrated when the Allisons retired to Tucson in 2012.

Joanie leads Thursday’s morning and afternoon volunteer crews at PCDP headquarters. Now working from home, she returns phone calls and answers questions about everything from voter registration to road repair. Her favorite calls are inquiries about registering as a Democrat.

 “I enjoy interacting with the public, and I look forward to returning to the office and our merry band of volunteers,” she said.  “Alison and Cat are so supportive. We all learn from each other, but Alison and Cat are special.”

As disinformation and right-wing conspiracies spread faster than ever, "de-radicalizers" or "exit counselors," who specialize in helping people caught up in cultic ideologies to reconnect with reality, are struggling to keep up with demand for their help. https://trib.al/FrkQUBX

Lawmakers talk about stretched-thin budgets, but their inaction on gun safety costs the country $280 BILLION annually. Year after year. Every day, gun violence costs us $767 million.

Whether or not you own a gun, you pay the cost.

Our sincerest congratulations Gov Polis! 🏳️‍🌈🇺🇸💙https://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/in-the-know/541628-colorado-gov-jared-polis-engaged-to-longtime-partner-marlon#.YEEp8tUTO-Y.twitter

Transformational change in the operations of law enforcement is necessary to begin to heal the deep wounds that systemic racism & structural inequalities have caused in our country. That’s why I voted tonight to pass the George Floyd #JusticeinPolicing Act.

Last night, I was proud to vote to pass H.R. 1, a legislative package of major election reforms that strengthen our democracy, including initiatives I championed to prevent tax dollar waste and ensure accountability from elected officials. #AZ01 http://bit.ly/3qhxXwj

Yesterday, I joined @RepEscobar & my colleagues to re-introduce the Binational Health Strategies Act to protect border communities against COVID-19. This legislation will help create a plan that protects our health & international commerce at the border. http://ow.ly/ieQZ50DQ8Bn

Every K-12 educator knows anything between Spring Break & summer is pretty much interrupted lesson plans, antsy students, exhausted teachers & winding up the year, but great job opening up schools again AZ! Have all bus drivers, food service & front office staff gotten vaccines?

GUEST OPINION: Disenfranchising voters is not ‘election reform’ https://azcapitoltimes.com/news/2021/03/03/disenfranchising-voters-is-not-election-reform/

OPINION from AZ business leaders: "They are attempts at voter suppression cloaked as reform – plain and simple. The onslaught of voter suppression measures that have been introduced or entertained this session has been alarming...and cannot be tolerated." #AZLeg #VotingRights https://twitter.com/AzCapitolTimes/status/1367236415537307651

More GOP sour grapes attacks on Democracy and voting rights in store today on the House Floor, and another legislative power grab on the Corporation Commission to prevent any embrace of renewable energy (HB2737). #azleg Watch here: https://www.azleg.gov/videoplayer/
