Prop 89 On Local Radio Tonight
This just in from the Redwood Peace and Justice Center:
Looks like the subject of Thursday Night Talk on KHSU tonight will be Prop 89, The Clean Money and Fair Elections Act which we'll be voting on this November.
In keeping with tradition, TNT has a proponent of the proposition, Kathryn Donahue of the California Nurses Association, as their guest. Their e-mail notice also gives quick positive spin on Prop 89, as is usually the case. What surprised me was the following explanation provided for Prop 89:
Donahue says that the Clean Money and Fair Elections legislation is a first step toward successfully passing any legislation that would provide universal, single payer health coverage for Californians.
“Proposition 89 is a first step in taking back our democracy from the global corporate empire-building that has been quietly occurring, without the general populous noticing. We believe this proposition will help awaken a sleeping voting population.”
Hey, I know there's an agenda behind Prop 89, just as there was with local Measure T; It's a power play by the Left to gain more control of the electoral process. That said, I didn't expect Universal Health Coverage to be thrown in to the mix, at least not this early in the game. But, to paraphrase what they say: "This is just the beginning...".
This upcoming election will be a scary one, indeed.
