reps are vulnerable here…

How do you feel about the American Health Care Act or AHCA? My guess is that you don’t like it. I don’t either. We need to send a message to our legislators.

Move to these vulnerable districts.  Seven of these vulnerable districts are within swing states and these are actually great places to live. Check them out: AZ 02: Tucson, Arizona  FL 25: Homestead, Florida and parts of Naples, Florida FL 26: Key West, Florida IA 01: Cedar Rapids, Iowa IA 03: Des…

get moving, millennials

Millennials are moving at historically low rates for young adults as pew research points out in this article. What is going on?! Fewer Millennials have spouses, children, and own homes than the generations before them- all things that could stop someone from relocating, but for millennials this doesn’t seem to matter. They are still staying put. What gives?
