YOUR LOCAL DEMOCRATIC CLUB MEETING

CALANDAR OF EVENTS

Oct. 24, Tuesday – 7 PM – DEC Meeting at Deicke Auditorium – This is very important for the election of a second VP.

This Week – From UniteWomen.org – Trump budget vote this week! Call Senate: “Say no to $1 trillion cuts to Medicaid for big tax cuts to the rich.” 844-241-1141
Today’s Daily Action: Call your senators. Tell them to vote NO on the Trump Republican budget today. This budget enables massive tax cuts for the wealthy. The budget cuts Medicaid by $1 trillion over the next 10 years and makes big cuts to Medicare, education, and more. These terrible tax cuts would cost us $2.4 trillion over the next 10 years. We say: Not one penny in tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations. And not one penny in cuts to health care, education, and Social Security. Tell your senator: Reject this bill today. No tax cuts for the rich, and no cuts to the programs that invest in all of us. 844-241-1141

 What’s Next

VOTER REGISTRATION CHANGES – October 6th, the following article appeared in the Sun-Sentinel announcing that it was now possible to register online, WITHOUT PRINTING ANYTHING OUT AND WITHOUT HAVING TO MAIL ANYTHING BACK!  Cindy Kent wrote that:  “The Florida Department of State has launched the new online voter registration website, RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov, providing Florida residents another way to register to vote or update an existing registration.  The website for the online voter registration is offered in English and Spanish and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  To register to vote online, Florida residents will need a Florida driver license or state identification card and the last four digits of their social security number to complete and submit the voter registration application electronically.”  Florida residents must also provide the date the license was issued.  So, a bit more information than is required on the official voter registration form, but still, this is a step forward.

 INVESTIGATION BY MULLER – DID TRUMP COLLUDE WITH THE RUSSIANS? DID TRUMP INTERFER IN AN INVESTIGATION? THIS CAN LEAD TO IMPEACHMENT Please share on Facebook legitimate sources of information.Keep Trump’s lack of morality and the investigation in people’s minds. SHKeARE ON YOUR TIMELINE

DACA and Trump’s plan for immigration reform – There might by demonstrations – PLEASE CALL  – We defeated trumpcare by calling and jamming up Congressional phone lines. 800,000 Dreamers are at risk of being deported. Please make that call.

THE BIG ISSUE – TAX REFORM – THIS NEEDS OUR ACTION. We defeated Trumpcare and we have to defeat the Republican budget WHICH IS BASED ON THIS TAX REFORM THE NEW BUDGET OUTLINES $473 BILLION IN CUTS FROM MEDICARE AND $1 TRILLION FROM MEDICAID OVER THE NEXT DECADE, plus cuts to Education, EPA, etc, etc.

TAX CUTS WILL ADD ROUGHLY $1.5 TRILLION TO AMERICA’S DEFICIT OVER 10 YRS. CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE WARNED THAT IT COULD ADD AN EXTRA $6 TRILLION TO THE DEFICIT – IT COULD BANKRUPT THE US

WHERE IS YOUR TAX MONEY GOING

Results of Summer of Resistance –

THIS IS WHAT WE DID IN 3-4 MONTHS

Total number of voter registration forms submitted to SOE office   OVER 300

Total number of petitions for restoration of rights OVER 4,000

From Alan Ehrlich  We had a great week at Broward College, even though we had to contend with a lot of rain and a whole bunch of paid solicitors.  Our wonderful volunteers were able to register 94 students and collect 334 rights restoration petitions!

WE DEMONSTRATED AGAINST RACISM AND HATRED From Rick Hoye, 1st VP of Broward Democratic Party: Yesterday, August 30th, 2017 marked a pivotal day in Broward politics and community advocacy. The City of Hollywood Commission voted 5-1 to rename the Hood, Lee, and Forrest streets in the neighborhood of Liberia. For more information of the events of yesterday, check out this recap from the MiamiHerald. The Broward Democratic Party is proud of everyone who stood tall and made their concerns known. Impassioned advocacy is what this County and Country will continuously need. For more than a decade, in this predominately African-American neighborhood, residents of Liberia have fought to change the street signs, and yesterday, their hard work finally paid off. We are all of one community, and yesterday that fact was made known loud and clear.

WE DEMONSTRATED FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

WE DEMONSTRATED AGAINST TRUMP ON TAX DAY

WE DEMONSTRATED FOR EQUAL RIGHTS

WE DEFEATED TRUMPCARE BY CALLING SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES You are responsible for this victory. It was your phone calls that lead to the defeat of trumpcare

WE CAUSED REPUBLICANS TO USE THE “NUCLEAR OPTION” TO GET THEIR SUPREME COURT NOMINEE. They changed the rules to approve a nominee from 51 votes to 60. This will come back to hurt them when we return to the majority in the Senate

WE DEMONSTRATED AND CALLED FOR A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE COLLUSION WITH THE RUSSIANS AND TRUMPS ROLE IN IT.
