It’s an Emergency!?
Yes, apparently, it was, if you believe the majority of our state legislature—they included an “Emergency Preamble” to the legislation raising their own pay, so when they overrode the Governor’s veto of the enormous payraises, the legislation took effect immediately, instead during the ordinary timeline for a newly passed piece of legislation.
Today is the one-year anniversary of those “emergency” payraises taking effect, and our legislature has done little to justify a 40% pay bump. In fact, they’ve done very little to benefit middle-class tax payers, but much to appease the liberal left.
From votes to allow men in the ladies room (roll call here) to reject requiring social security numbers to place people in tax-payer funded housing (roll call here), they’ve toed the left-wing Democratic Party line.
Many of them are still running unopposed, despite how unpopular their actions are. People are fed up, but they need an alternative.
We need your help with three things:
- First, see if your State Representative voted for the payraises by clicking here. Don’t know which legislator is yours? Type your address in at www.wheredoIvoteMA.com and scroll down to Representative in General Court to find his or her name.
- Second, resolve to get more involved. Today, we’re launching more digital payraise ads exposing their voting records in four additional legislative districts, adding to the dozens we already have run. If you’d like to contribute to educating your neighbors on their voting records, please chip in $10 or $20 by clicking here.
- We’re still looking for conservative candidates to step forward and run against them. Every single legislator who selfishly voted for these payraises should have a challenger. Yet some of them, even in conservative districts, are running unopposed. There are even a handful running unopposed in districts that voted last year for President Trump—places where it’s clear the voters don’t support a left-wing agenda. If you’re at all interested in discussing a run for office, please send us an email to start a discussion.
We have the ability to join together and make a difference if we chose to take action. The next steps are up to us.
