“Progressive” Connections

Wrote Michael Lighty, Director of Public Policy National Nurses United and PDA Advisory Board Member:

The RNs of NNU have found a natural alliance with [PDA activists], who never slow in the fight against austerity to win prosperity for all. RNs and PDA activists joined in campaigns across the country for insurgent progressives like Elizabeth Warren, now Senator-elect from Massachusetts, Medicare for All supporter Ami Bera, soon to be Congressman from California…

Michael Lighty is also a former National Organizational Director of Democratic Socialists of America.

PDA Phone Bankers

PDA phone bankers and mail deliverers helped Bera win his very tight race.

From November 1, 2012, through Election Day, Progressive Democrats of America’s Phone Bank Director, Mike Fox, organized volunteers across the USA, making thousands of GOTV calls for “progressive candidates,” including Dr. Ami Bera — a Medicare for All medical doctor running against 4-term incumbent Dan Lundgren in California’s 7th District…

Hosting PDA

According to a New Year 2013 press release from PDA, Bera was a “friend” of the organization and would be hosting a PDA delegation on Capitol Hill:

Progressive Democrats of America accomplished a lot in 2012 — thanks to your help and support. Together, we helped defeat Tea Party extremists and helped elect strong progressives to Congress. We educated members of Congress every month in our home districts, and in the halls of Congress in Washington, DC. Now, PDA is starting 2013 in a big way!

In just a few days, on January 3rd, our team will be on Capitol Hill as special guests of our newly elected and re-elected progressive candidates including our board members our friends Representatives Alan Grayson, Dr. Ami Bera, and Mark Pocan…

Foreign Policy/National Security

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
