  •  Ohio had a good reform bill that failed in 2012 (1+ / 0-)

    Dems have to be careful of attempts by the news media to split support for these bills, as happened with our last one.

    They nitpick details and engage in fearmongering against progressive redistricting proposals. They'll do that to divide camps against each other.

    Don't let that happen.  Don't tell yourself, "Oh, I won't vote for that one, we can write a better one next time."  If corporate media is criticizing a measure, that means its a good one.  Their advertisers (beware especially of mega health care systems) have a vested interest in controlling government at the state level, not always to your benefit.  

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
