We are asking all progressives, partisan or otherwise, to join us at the 9th District Democratic Party meeting on 06/17 at the Plumber's Local 98 in Madison Heights. We will be focusing on Sander Levin's silence on defense spending and his lack of support for Medicare for All via HR 676.
We are planning this event in coordination with a DAPJN rally concerning Levin's silence on military spending increases: https://www.facebook.com/
Levin's historical support for our outrageously bloated defense budget is not uncommon among establishment democrats. Allowing republicans control over the framing of the issue of military spending has been wildly detrimental to the Democratic Party. If democrats are silent about major issues it enables ultraconservatives to control the discussion; you can't appeal to moderates with silence, and you sure as hell can't appeal to leftists by effectively promoting the expansion of the military industrial complex. CD9 is a safe district for democrats, so why on earth doesn't Sandy take a reasonable stance on Military spending?
