No matter who you voted for in the last election, you were betrayed on Dec. 2. Senate Republicans, who are controlled by people like the Koch brothers, voted to take away your Social Security, your Medicare and your health insurance. Wait. Didn’t they vote on a tax plan? Yes, but hidden in that tax plan is the cruelest intent of the Koch brothers – we will lose programs we have paid for all of our working lives.

I have had enough! McCain, Flake and McSally voted for the Koch brothers instead of for us. Remember, we have power – it is our voter registration card. Show up for primary elections. Show up for the general election. We all deserve better. We have the power to get it. We were all betrayed by Congress. Let’s act together to elect representatives who vote for constituents, not for the rich and powerful.
