Coming Events. Save the Dates!


The Martin County Democratic Club

Democratic Club Picnic
When: Sunday, July 6th, 3:00–5:00 PM
Where: INDIAN RIVERSIDE PARK

We could use two or three people to help me set things up on July 6, so if you will be in town and can come about 2:00, let me know at the Club meeting on Wednesday, June 4.
Also, for this event, the Club will supply chicken wings and everyone who attends is asked to bring something that will serve 8-10 people. Here’s how that works: People with last names beginning A-H should bring desserts/sweets, those with names beginning I-P should bring salads or other picnic-like side dishes, people with names beginning with Q-Z should bring appetizers/snacks.


Women’s Club Meeting
Next Meeting: Saturday, June 14th,
Program: The Democratic Women's Club of Martin County will be showing the film, Girl Rising, on Saturday, June 14th, 2:00 PM, at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Stuart. We will NOT be having our regular meeting at the Clarion.
This one month only will give more of our members and friends the opportunity to view this important work.
Educating girls world-wide is definitely a non-partisan issue and we hope to reach several women, girls, men, and boys in the Stuart area no matter what their political views happen to be.
Please let us know if you will be able to help with refreshments in the form of snacks, finger food, or dessert. The Board will supply drinks, plates, napkins, etc.

In 2014, Florida Democratic women continue to be a positive and progressive force, advocating for Democratic party values, and working tirelessly to get Democrats elected.

GOP Fallacies on Obamacare: The greatest hits

Republicans have enjoyed themselves immensely during the Affordable Care Act’s bungled rollout, but most of the claims they’re making are preposterous and phony. Since anyone able to take a longer view knows we’ll one day be well past Obamacare’s self-inflicted wounds, I’d like as a public service to catalog the GOP’s shabbiest arguments, so we’ll all have a handy reference once the worm fully turns.

ACA - FLORIDA DEMOCRATS SUPPORT OBAMACARE

The Affordable Care Act is popular here. Florida has the second-highest rate of signups in the nation--only behind California. This is freaking amazing, considering that Rick Scott, the legislature, and our attorney general are working as hard as they can to make it as difficult as possible. People in this state are getting healthcare who never had it before.
The benefits of ACA for seniors are real: A $250M investment to fight fraud, the requirement that insurance companies offer free preventive care (like colorectal cancer) and the fact that the ACA finally CLOSES the medication donut hole!

The Real Numbers On 'The Obamacare Effect' Are In

After years of negative speculation on the part of the opponents of Obamacare, hard data is finally coming in with respect to the anticipated negative side-effects of the law.

While most all would agree that there are some repairs that need to be made to the Affordable Care Act, workable fixes designed to benefit the public and improve American healthcare cannot happen so long as politicians, pundits and special interests are devoted to lying about what Obamacare means and what it does not mean to the American public.

The results are guaranteed to both surprise and depress those who have built their narrative around the effort to destroy the Affordable Care Act.

Just How Low Can the Republican Party Go?

Never before in American history have we seen a political party so completely dominated and controlled by its extremist wing; and never before have we seen a political party that brings together the attributes of nihilism, heartlessness, radicalism and naked partisanship quite like the modern GOP. In a two-party system like America’s, the result is unprecedented dysfunction.

What’s It Like to Wake Up From a Tea Party Binge? Just Ask Florida!

Kids locked up in nursing homes. Leaky sewers. Mosquitoes unleashed. The Sunshine State has buyer’s remorse. Florida is where the rhetoric becomes the reality. It’s kind of the tea party on steroids. Support for Scott and the GOP is plummeting as Floridians see anti-government governance at work. But it may be too late for buyer’s remorse. After two years at the helm, the tea party’s legacy is likely to far outlast the movement. More


End The Violence with Common-sense Changes in Gun Policies

President Obama has announced his plan to better protect our children and our communities by reducing gun violence in America.

Take a look at the President’s plan to reduce gun violence, and stand with him in support:
Stand With The President


The Case for Obama: Why He Is a Great President.

What can be said without equivocation is that Obama has proven himself morally, intellectually, temperamentally, and strategically. In our lifetime, or our parents’, he is easily the best president. On his own terms, and not merely as a contrast to an unacceptable alternative, he overwhelmingly deserves reelection... This is Why


Washington Post Editorial: The Republicans are the Problem


A Strong Middle-class Society Requires a Strong Union Movement

Unions make the middle class strong by ensuring workers have a strong voice in both the market and in our democracy.
But as unions became weaker over the past four decades, they are less and less able to perform these functions–and the middle class withered.
Union Membership
When unions are strong they are able to ensure that workers are paid fair wages, receive the training they need to advance to the middle class, and are considered in corporate decision-making processes. Unions also promote political participation among all Americans, and help workers secure government policies that support the middle class, such as Social Security, family leave, and the minimum wage.
