Barbara Lee Issues Statement on the Vice Presidential Debate

Written by  Congresswoman Barbara Lee | Press Release

Oakland, CA – Barbara Lee issued the following statement on the Vice Presidential Debate:

“As was reinforced again tonight, there is a clear choice in this election for all, but especially women. Paul Ryan is absolutely dedicated to repealing the Affordable Care Act, which would roll back the progress we’ve made to ensuring that women across the country receive the preventative care services they deserve. And both Romney and Ryan have pledged to take women back to the same failed policies of the past that limited their right to control their own health choices. They’ve made it clear that they want to make our decisions for us. In stark contrast, President Obama trusts us to make our own and that’s why women across the country and the people of my home state of California will re-elect him to a second term.”

Join "Countdown to Coverage" Share TPP with your Daily Newspaper

CWA devised a simple plan for which they were uniquely suited: drag TPP out of the shadows and into the light - one city at a time - using a medium they understand intimately: Daily Newspapers!

Two CWA members - Dave Felice in Denver, CO and Madelyn Elder in Portland, OR have started the ball rolling. We just need to keep up the momentum leading up to a big day of petition deliveries in January.

Step 1 is to send an Op-Ed to your Daily Newspaper.

Hand Deliver a Letter to your Senators or Representative on the TPP

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently opposed to Fast Track, they may not completely understand all the implications. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
