GOP: Early warning systems? Who needs ’em? (video)

In the wake of the horrific devastation in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami earlier this week, it’s ironic that the Republican-controlled US House of Representatives has America’s natural disaster early warning systems on the small government chopping block. Check out this video link from the Ed Schultz Show on MSNBC.

The OpEd: What happens if tragedy hits here?

Why cut effective programs that save lives and don’t cost much?

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela J. Powers

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals–not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election.

My platform focused on economic reforms to grow Arizona’s economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, grow local small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs.

In the Arizona House, I was a strong voice for fiscal responsibility a moratorium on corporate tax breaks until the schools were fully funded, increased cash assistance to the poor, expansion of maternal healthcare benefits, equal rights, choice, unions, education at all levels and protecting our water supply.

After three terms, I retired from the Arizona Legislature in January 2023 but will continue to blog and produce my podcast “A View from the Left Side.”
