The antidote to chaos

TIME Magazine’s Most Influential People in AI List   Dear John, It’s wrenching to witness the demise of the House of Representatives. The new majority has no interest in governing and addressing the challenges of our time.  With their baseless impeachment inquiry and reckless threats t…

Affordable healthcare is on the chopping block

The GOP and PhRMA attack dogs have been unleashed

  John — The dark money-fueled, conservative American Action Network is spending millions of dollars on deceptive attack ads against the Biden Administration and a handful of House Members, including me.  The lie-ridden ads accuse the Administration of “raiding” Medicare and cutting be…

  Dear John, I have followed with increasing admiration and respect Anna Eshoo's 30 years in Congress since she was first elected in 1992 in what was the heart of my old district in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. I have also followed with increasing outrage, the preposterous, un…

We the People

  The very first paragraph of our Constitution begins with three powerful words ... We the People. As our country prepares for the centuries-old undertaking of a national election, these words have great meaning to me. It is the ‘we’ who create the changes for a more perfect union by…

Poisonous Lies

We must pay attention to the right wing

  John, The right wing of the GOP has been on a warpath to strip us of our reproductive rights and our right to bodily autonomy and privacy. They should be paid attention to. They say what they mean and mean what they say and have been consistent on this for over 3 decades. They foug…

‘Battling Bella’ and the Pursuit of Equality

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned
