Navy Blue AMAC Action Weekly Update

Legislative and Policy Support

AMAC Joins Coalition Letter to Oppose the SEC’s Climate Disclosure Rule

The Securities and Exchange Commission is coloring well outside the lines of regulating securities with their new climate disclosure rule. The rule would require most public companies to disclose their greenhouse gas emissions in order to be listed on American stock exchanges. American investors are concerned with financial returns and increasing shareholder value, not advancing an ideological climate agenda that stifles American innovation through mountains of paperwork and endless red tape for the American businesses that keep our economy strong. Read the coalition’s letter of opposition.

S.2129 – Ensuring Access to Lower-Cost Medicines for Seniors Act

This legislation aims to provide much-needed relief to our nation’s seniors by ensuring access to affordable prescription medications. This bill includes measures to increase transparency in drug pricing and promote the use of generic medications. Expanding Medicare Part D to include coverage for generic and biosimilar drugs is a critical step in promoting affordability, accessibility, and innovation in the pharmaceutical landscape. By ensuring coverage for generics and biosimilars, Medicare Part D can help seniors save on out-of-pocket expenses, alleviate financial burdens, and improve medication adherence. This bipartisan legislation represents a critical step towards addressing the high cost of prescription drugs and ensuring that seniors can access the medications that they need to maintain their health and well-being.

AMAC Action Statement on KY SB 6 – Anti-DEI Legislation

 

AMAC Action sent the following statement, signed by President Bob Carlstrom, to the KY State Senate as it considered Senate Bill 6. This legislation would prevent Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives in Kentucky’s post-secondary educational institutions:

“On behalf of AMAC – Association of Mature American Citizens’ 2.1 million members nationwide, including over 26,400 residing in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, I strongly urge the Kentucky Senate to pass legislation that would remove dangerous Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives from post-secondary education.

While DEI has been packaged and sold as a vehicle promoting fair treatment of all people, it has been shown to be nothing more than the radicalization of race combined with bureaucratic bluster funded by taxpayers and increased tuition. DEI’s so-called “equity projects” direct students to see racism in everything and cloud actions that are truly biased and deserving of a response.

According to research cited by the Heritage Foundation, “(1) diversity training programs have failed to improve attitudes and behaviors for years, and (2) attempts to reduce bias through measuring just how much each of us has stored away in the recesses of our mind have been a spectacular bust. Anthropology Now reports that “hundreds of studies dating back to the 1930s suggest that anti-bias training doesn’t reduce bias.”

The Kentucky Senate has an opportunity now to stop the failed doctrine of DEI and spare students from its divisive rhetoric. AMAC Action urges this esteemed chamber to do right for students attending post-secondary education facilities in Kentucky and eliminate DEI from its classrooms.”

AMAC Action Submits Testimony to Rhode Island House Committee on State Government & Elections

This written testimony, on behalf of AMAC’s 3,120+ members in Rhode Island, was submitted to oppose HB 7540, a bill that promotes the use of ranked-choice voting in the state. The Committee decided to hold the measure for further study. Read AMAC Action’s testimony.

Attention Wisconsin AMAC Members!  – (Active) Out-of-state billionaires put $10 million into Wisconsin to drive blue city turnout in 2020. They plan to do it again in 2024.

US Congress – (Active) Stop Non-Citizens from Voting in America’s Elections! The Biden Administration has allowed millions of people to enter the United States illegally and given them a pathway to vote in our elections. This orchestrated effort by the Biden Administration to corrupt our elections and install Democrats as a uniparty must be stopped. Please contact your Congressman or woman today and compel them to stop non-citizens from voting in America’s elections.

Quote of the Week

Up from the grave He arose, with a mighty triumph o’er His foes

He arose a Victor from the dark domain

And He lives forever with His saints to reign

He arose, He arose, Hallelujah, Christ arose.

The governments idea of cutting the cost of drugs for seniors is to raise the price of name brand drugs. (Doubled the price) Then offer a generic drug for the same price I used to pay for the name brand drug. What a saving. Thank you mister president.
