Mike Braun Choosing Politics Over National Security
With America’s closest ally in the Middle East under attack, Mike Braun must decide between politics and national security. Last month, Braun joined Tommy Tuberville’s political stunt of holding up over 300 military confirmations and promotions. By voting against decorated hero General C.Q. Brown for chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Braun turned his back on courageous servicemembers.
Braun has a choice to make. He can continue to participate in Washington political games that endanger Hoosiers and the United States, or he can allow the military to operate at full capacity by encouraging Tuberville to end his careless charade.
Each week, the State Party will highlight key policy from Democrats at the Statehouse or across the state. Democrats deliver a better future for Hoosier families, and we urge you to share this information with your networks.
As federal funding from the American Rescue Act has expired, Indiana childcare facilities are at risk, potentially hurting hardworking Indiana families. Up to 50,000 children in Indiana may be affected by this new lack of funding. But Indiana Democrats, like State Representative Carey Hamilton, are advocating for statewide legislation to address these concerns and support early childhood education. Rep. Hamilton wants to make Pre-K a possibility for all Hoosier children and provide them with a path to success. Indiana Democrats will continue to fight for better education and more opportunities for all Indiana families.
