On Monday, March 6, YOU could be elected to the most influential and important office to be filled in this year’s elections!
If the Precinct Caucus is where “the rubber meets the road” in American Democracy, the Precinct Committee Person is the tread on the tires which steers and powers the machine of Grassroots governance.
Each precinct will elect two Precinct Committee Persons (PCP) to their County Committee. The PCPs must commit to serving two-year terms organizing and representing citizens in their neighborhoods. The PCP is charged with assuring that the County Committee truly represents the interests and priorities of voters in each of their neighborhoods. The job is not difficult but does require personal interaction with their neighbors in order to honestly represent their common interests.
“The American people deserve real, bipartisan tax reform that puts the middle class first, [creates] good-paying jobs and lowers the deficit,” said House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California. “This Republican plan doesn’t do any of that.”
He says the bill would “allow the United States of America to do what every other major country on earth is doing and guarantee health care for all as a right, not a privilege.”
This study also makes a great case for single-payer healthcare or Medicare for All. A great many of the disabled people probably got that way because they had health problems that were untreated because they could not afford medical care.
Many of those with health problems go untreated which raises the death rate. U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) is absolutely right; lack of access to medical care is killing Americans.
If you are concerned about protecting the rights of people with disabilities you may want to weigh in on this. The ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017 (H.R. 620) removes protections for Americans with Disabilities to protect businesses. If this bill passes, individuals would be required to ‘prove’ a lack of accessibility for persons of disability at a business, essentially putting the burden of compliance with ADA regulations on the the people rather than the business.
