Current research shows “Baby Boomers” to now be the largest voting block in America. They have been voting longer than most generations, save one, and in 2020 have much at stake to drive them to the polls. Elected Republicans in Washington D.C. have been trying to cut benefits to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
It is estimated that very soon “Millennials” will overtake Baby Boomers in this category. As it stands, they are a very close second to Baby Boomers, and they have an axe to grind. This is where opportunity lies.
Both generations have a common foe, “Moscow Mitch” and the Republican lead Senate; Donald Trump, and his administration that support his obstruction. Baby Boomers see the Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid under attack. Millennials see them ignoring climate science and abandoning reason on sensible gun legislation. Both generations feel the effects of “Trickle Down Economics”.
Alliance for Retired Americans
Retirees in Arizona from many different unions congregated with lawmakers to strengthen the bond between representative and citizen. Elected officials like Phoenix Mayor, Kate Gallego, who support organized labor and the right to collective bargaining.
It is reassuring to see my union brothers and sisters retired, but being activist for equality. This type of activism is why unity is so vital to the working men and women of this country. Without equity, employment considerations will always favor the employer.
Once elected by the people of Arizona’s 8th Congressional District, I will continue to speak for the labor force that keeps the flow of commerce moving efficiently.
