Note from Lita
Yesterday was another big day for our country. Like the atmospheric river pouring unprecedented amounts of rain over Southern California, the Republicans continued to dump their own historic, chaotic mess onto the halls of Congress. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R) showed himself to be incapable of implementing his terrible agenda, as the attempt to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas failed spectacularly, thanks to three defections on the GOP side, and Rep. Al Green, a Democrat from Texas, making a surprise post-surgery appearance to vote No! Johnson also lead a failed attempt to pass an aid package for Israel, which was a clear effort to circumvent the bi-partisan border security and international aid deal that was successfully wrapping up in the Senate. Of course, good ole boy and Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell played his part in the chaos by puling the plug on the security deal.
While we may be relieved by the incompetence of the party under Trumpism, we also remain fearful of the concept that this version of the GOP might continue to hold power over our country. All of this, for me and the Executive Committee and all of our members, I'm sure, re-affirms our commitment to continue the work we do together as the Democrats of Orange County Political Action Committee. Let's let the GOP chaos fuel our own fire... to expand our membership, and reach our fundraising goal ASAP so we can help Democratic candidates around the country win big this year! I am so grateful that we are in this together!!
