2 thoughts on “Asm. Autumn Burke sponsors insurance bill that could hurt consumers

  1. One of the concerns I have voiced with recent comments to 2urbangirls is the practice of Black elected officials voting one way in Sacramento and then telling the constituents – in their home districts – the opposite. But to actually sponsor a bill that will clearly hurt those who can least afford it is inexcusable and unfairly burdens the poor. This is happening at the local, county, state, and federal level and represents the ultimate betrayal of our trust and it continues to happen.

    There is a similar issue. Whether or not we agree or disagree with the recently passed gas tax bill, Blacks are going to feel the pinch every time they go to the gas pumps. We are the faces of the poor and disenfranchised. This bill was approved in the dead of the night. Not one Black politician sought the opinions of the community or even the local politicians. We did get their press releases touting the proposed benefits of the bill after it was passed.

    Assemblywoman Autumn Burke’s proposed legislation affects us all. Call her office to voice your concern (310) 412-6400. By the time we add up all of the costs for the different bills and measures recently passed we will be broke.

    We cannot continue to keep reelecting those who betray our trust. Look at some of our communities. They look like crap and our Black elected officials and their aides can’t make us think otherwise. We aren’t stupid.
