Why run against the Speaker of the House, the most powerful Democrat in the nation, who could raise untold amounts of money, were it ever needed?
Because the first responsibility of a member of the U.S. House of Representatives is to provide her constituents with the best possible representation in Washington, D.C. It is my belief that impressive party leadership achievements, notwithstanding, Pelosi has not actually provided the type of political direction that San Franciscans have a right to expect.
And because we spend so much on THIS:
We don’t have the money to fix THIS:
“In our negotiations, Congressional Democrats have been fighting for increases in funding for defense.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (in email to House Democrats during February, 2018 budget negotiations)
“Although it’s the boldest, most important initiative introduced to the U.S. Congress in decades, the Green New Deal will go nowhere with leaders addicted to a self-destructive policy of endless war.” —Tom Gallagher
