We are doing a happy dance -- Alabama has a Democratic Senator! Now we need to flip California - and we know it can be done.
The 4 Orange County Republicans are running scared, as they should be. Mimi is starting to backtrack on her support of the tax bill - not because it's horrible for the masses, but because her wealthy constituents are mad about not being able to deduct for their huge homes and their state taxes. Whatever the reason, if she votes against it, that's good for all of us. The Wall Street Journal reported on this.
Issa is back-tracking on his vote. He's also worried about the double taxation issue and the elimination of the ability to deduct fire and earthquake-related expenses -- clearly aimed at California.
Though I hope they vote against the final bill, as I would have told an ex-boyfriend "Too little, too late!"
I believe we are truly making a difference. Our phone calls, demonstrations, and e-mails are getting their attention. We'll keep it up till we take back Congress and the White House.
Thanks for all you've done and will continue to do.
Don't forget - Women's March on January 20. I'll be going to Santa Ana.
