Why is it time to JOIN or RENEW your membership to the South Shore Democratic Club?
Our Florida Republican Legislature is proposing bills that would turn back voting rights, cost residents money, put us in personal danger and literally be bad for our health. We need to be prepared to fight for our rights. That means a large, strong and active Democratic Club.
Some of the bills being proposed by the Republican majorities in the House and Senate:
-Medicaid cuts for 19 and 20 year olds and for nursing homes.
-Reversing local laws that require developers to pay Impact fees.
-New voting restrictions: No water or food to those in voting lines; restrictions and reduced drop boxes, must ask for vote by mail ballots annually.
-Propose to allow guns in Houses of Worship.
-Sales tax for online purchases diverted to support corporations to avoid paying unemployment insurance.
-Student Sex Education available ONLY with parental consent because the Republicans view it as pornographic.
-Governor can override rulings and laws created by local governments.
-Stop promotion of Clean Energy Initiatives.
-Legislation to reduce the strength of unions.
-Kill scholarships for students entering college majoring in subject not approved by the state.
-Ban background checks for firearms.
-Eliminate tax for timeshare properties.
-Transgender students not allowed into school sports programs.
-Hold corporations harmless for employees and others that contract COVID due to the actions of their companies.
JOIN or RENEW NOW and tell your friends why they should do the same!
Dues are still only $20.00 for the year. Your dues make possible the work needed to defeat Republicans in 2022 and also support Democratic candidates who have the best chance to unseat the current Republicans.
