Directions and information

Jason supports the Affordable Care Act and recognizes it's importance. He is in favor of immigration reform. He owns a firearm, but believes in strengthening regulations on purchasing guns. He is a progressive on every issue.

Women's health: A woman's health is between her and her doctor. No politician, regardless of his own personal views, should dictate what a woman does with her own body. I do not support government engaging in any unwarranted interference into medical decisions, especially for political gain. That is why I believe women should have open access to health care, including birth control and family planning....

The GOP is being noisier and more obnoxious than ever. They think they can discourage Democrats and limit our voting because they recognize that WE ARE VERY POWERFUL PEOPLE!! All of us working together with optimism and strength are a mighty force. All that matters is that together we really can do this.

I want to see Boehner cry as he hands the gavel to Speaker Pelosi. Let's take back the House in 2014!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
