The West Bloomfield/Lakes Area Democratic Club is on FACEBOOK.. Join Us!


Years ago, I heard a young reporter ask an old editorial writer what the difference was between Republicans and Democrats. The old guy said, "Democrats love big government, preferably controlled by and run from Washington. Republicans are in favor of smaller, less intrusive government, and local control," he said, and then paused. "Except, that is, when they're not." The young reporter asked when that was. "Whenever local government does something they don't want it to do," the old cynic said. See article by Jack Lessenberry

We likely have a very narrow window to defeat the disastrous Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal in the lame duck Congress. We expect that, as early as the middle of September, the White House will start the process to "fast track" the TPP. From that point, it is likely that Congress must vote within 90 days. Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell just said he does not want to vote on TPP this year. And Secretary Hillary Clinton has also said TPP should not come up for a vote in this Congress. Wall Street, corporate America and their representatives in Congress will try to pass this bad trade deal after the election anyway. Sign the Petition to stop the TPP

Michael Stack is endorsed by the Free Press. This is great news as Michael battles against the DeVos behemoth.
