In November, voters will have the chance to VOTE NO on Prop 305, the universal expansion of Arizona’s ESA voucher program.
So, what is an ESA? ESA stands for Empowerment Scholarship Account, which is a deceptive word for voucher. Vouchers were ruled unconstitutional in Arizona in 2006 because they divert public money to private schools. So ESAs were created as a loophole.
Here’s a short video showing why we want a NO vote on Prop 305.
Former Vice President Hubert Humphrey
Over the last week, there have been numerous salutations of the late Attorney General and New York Senator Robert Francis Kennedy who was assassinated after having won the California Primary in May 1968.
The tragic assassination, coupled with the horrific murder of his brother in Dallas five years earlier has left no shortage of historians and public policy wonks wondering “What if RFK had lived? Would he have won the nomination? Would he have been able to beat Nixon? What kind of President would he have been?”
These are all interesting and valid questions but it presupposes that the Democrats had no Progressive Champion carrying the banner for them in 1968 and that cannot be further from the truth.
