Don’t forget that the elections held in Michigan will greatly impact our future. It’s not just the Presidential election. Fems for Dems is working to help flip the State House in order to stop efforts by the Republicans to block efforts in Michigan and to make this a better place to live. We can do it with your help. In 2018, Democrats picked up 5 seats, and we were only 2,803 votes short of winning an outright majority. We must have an Extreme Makeover – Michigan House Edition! Below are several different ways you can help!Just a few troubling items that are on our minds these days:
- Michigan is ranked 29 out of 50 states in road, bridge and dam condition.
- The Republicans have blocked every effort made by Governor Whitmer to “fix the damn roads!”
- Michigan has an 81% high school graduation rate (National average = 85%).
- The Republican controlled House wants to slash public school funding by up to 25%..
- More than 650,000 Michiganders rely on the expanded Medicaid program.
- Congressional Republicans are fighting to keep in place the onerous task of reporting work hours to keep their benefits during a global pandemic.
