Affordable Care Act
The Washington Insurance Exchange opened on October 1st. People can now signup for a plan that suits their situation. Enrollment is open until March 2014 and coverage starts January 1st, 2014.

There are some scam websites that look like the Exchange but don't be fooled. Choosing insurance coverage outside of the Exchange will make you ineligible for federal subsidies or tax credits that are available. Go to the Washington State Insurance Commisioner's site and click on Health plans and rates: http://www.insurance.wa.gov/

Citizen's United
An amendment is being proposed to the Constitution that would help overthrow the Citizen's United ruling by the Supreme Court. It's called "We the People". To learn more about this effort visit www.WeThePeopleAmendment.org.

End the Bush Tax Cuts
Bush Tax Cust

benefit – each year – some folks
you may have heard of:

Sean Hannity - $1,006,352
Bill O’Reilly - $914,352

TAKE ACTION:


Extend ONLY Middle Class Tax Cuts
 

Tell Obama: Fight, Don't Cave on Tax Cuts

Imagine Democracy...

We need full public financing of election campaigns so that candidates who represent the people can afford to run, and so that once in office, elected representatives are not obligated to special interests and their lobbyists, for fear of losing campaign contributions. This won't solve all of our problems, but it will go a long way to breaking the link between big donors and public officials and to restoring a government "of, by, and for the people."

At our January 2010 meeting,  the 31st LD Dems unanimously adpoted this resolution!
