Honda_SSHero_900x900Congressman Mike Honda spent his childhood in a Japanese-American internment camp before becoming a teacher.

Now he’s one of the boldest progressives in Congress — a national leader for expanding Social Security benefits, requiring millionaires to pay their fair share, and protecting Net Neutrality.

This morning’s Election Watch reports, “Honda’s rival Ro Khanna (D) has refused to commit to expanding Social Security benefits, saying he wouldn’t rule out cutting them for future recipients.”

Ro Khanna also opposes the congressional progressive budget that would tax millionaires, invest in jobs, and invest in education! (And he calls himself a Democrat?)

Today, we are proud to endorse Mike Honda for re-election. Please vote in the June 3primary — and share this blog with all local voters you know.

Ro Khanna has been desperately “district shopping” for years. He even tricked people into donating to him when he was running in a different district — and now he’s using that money to run against popular Mike Honda!

Ro Khanna’s ideas are incredibly old. In criticizing the forward-looking progressive budget, he called for more “compromise and consensus” with House Republicans.

Has he been watching Congress lately? Does Ro Khanna actually believe the problem is that Democrats don’t compromise enough?

Mike Honda is right up there with Elizabeth Warren and Alan Grayson as a bold progressive who gets that the voice of the people has been lost — and yes, we need someone fighting for us.

Please pass this to every local voter you know because every vote counts on June 3.
