CZT Bio Photo medium resizeReady for Hillary is picking up steam and organizing throughout the nation. In an effort to draft Hillary Rodham Clinton and (possibly) preempt others from joining the field, the organization, headed by Allida Black, is pushing forward full steam. In addition to James Carville, Harold Ickes, Jennifer Granholm and Under Secretary of State Ellen Tauscher, the group just added 270 Strategies, the former Obama grassroots organizers to the growing army.

Of concern for all, the student loan interest rates have doubled from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent. Even mortgage rates (which have recently jumped) are significantly lower than the Stafford loans. Private activity bond legislation, despite having over 100 bi-partisan sponsors in the House last year, is awaiting reintroduction. That means fixing our sewers and water infrastructure nationwide. This is WATER guys… let’s get it DONE!  

Texas, Texas…Wendy Davis has been catapulted to the national stage for her stand (in Mizuno running shoes) on stopping an abortion bill. With Rick Perry announcing he will not seek another term, rumors are Texas could go BLUE. 

Enjoy the summer!
