Two weeks ago, we got word that Republican Vice-Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan would be in Fresno September 8 for a campaign fundraising dinner. The only details we had were that the dinner would range from $1,000. a plate to $25,000. to attend a private reception, but we quickly got to work to ready a “welcome” for him.
With Judy Hess, Regional Coordinator for the Central Valley, and Leader of the local chapter of Progressive Democrats of America (Central Valley-Sierra Progressives), Howard Watkins of the Central Valley Progressive PAC (a PAC for local candidates), CNA, CWA, CARA, the Progressive Network of Central California, OFA, the Madera County Democratic Party, and others mobilized to get out the troops!
Mitt Romney has adopted Paul Ryan’s plan, which means a functional end to ACA, Medicare (death by voucher), Social Security (senior’s money given to Wall Street), and gutting of Medicaid.
