The House Democratic Caucus Is In the Game!

Yesterday, Rep. Sherry Jones and the House Democratic Caucus (The Only Democrats Left?) came out against the Republicans’ unconstitutional bill limiting a woman’s right to control her own body.

“Tennessee’s women should not have to suffer more intrusive laws that violate their right to privacy just so Sen. Tracy can polish his conservative credentials in his race against Congressman Scott DesJarlais,” said Rep. Sherry Jones (D-59). “Republicans have spent the past three years complaining about how the government shouldn’t stand between a patient and their doctor, but with this legislation, that is exactly what they are trying to do.”

We need more of this kind of fight.

Leaders of the Democratic Party — we’re ready for more — your wounds will be rewarded in two years — your timidity won’t be forgotten.

    Enlist us in the fight Tennessee Democratic party. We are feeling feisty. Campfield has made it so easy to engage. Lets do it Democrats! We may be in the (uber) minority, but that does not mean we must cower in the corner while the GOP continues its assault on our constituencies. Saddle up people. Let’s ride.
