Why we need a WFP

January 29th, 2010 by admin

Last week was an awful one in politics. The Supreme Court handed down one of the worst decisions in its history, opening wide the floodgates to lobbyists and their corporate dollars. In response to the Massachusetts debacle, many in Congress are backing away from healthcare reform.

But in Oregon, we have some good news. We made it clear where we stand by passing Measures 66 and 67. This is a harsh rebuke to talking heads who think that what happened in Massachusetts means that the American people have lost their appetite for reform.

But we can’t just hope that politicians get the message – we have to make sure they get it. Standing up for working families and holding our elected officials accountable to all Oregonians – not to big corporate interests — is why the Working Families Party exists.

We’re a new kind of party. We focus on the issues that matter, not on candidates’ personalities. And we’re committed to supporting any candidates – Democrats, Republican or Independents – who are committed to fighting for affordable healthcare, decent jobs and quality schools.

By registering WFP you can make all candidates and elected officials know that you want a government that’s accountable to all of us, not just the wealthy and well-connected. The more of us there are, the more they’ll be compelled to listen. There’s never been a better time to jump on board. All you need to do is grab a voter’s registration form, fill in the Working Families Party circle, and mail it in.

We need your help today to build a permanent voice for working families in government. By registering WFP, you can help ensure the WFP gains permanent ballots status in Oregon. That way, we’ll always have a voice on our issues.
