The 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, guaranteeing American women the right to vote, celebrates a big birthday on Tuesday, as it was passed by both chambers of Congress 100 years ago on June 4, 1919. According to the National Archives, the House of Representatives first passed the amendment on May 21, 1919, and two weeks later, on June 4, the Senate followed with a vote of 56 to 25. The next year, following approval by three-fourths of state legislatures, the amendment was ratified into the Constitution. The opening of the Amendment’s text reads, “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.” Read more.

Ohio state lawmakers unveiled a plan to cap the soaring prices of insulin for diabetics. The bill would limit the price to $100 a month. Currently, many patients pay between $600 and $1200 for it. Supporters of the legislation said a quarter of diabetics have rationed their insulin because of the price, which can lead too much more serious health complications.
“We need help,” said Antroinette Worsham, a Cincinnati mom of two daughters who have Type 1 diabetes. “Insulin doesn’t cost that much to produce. Why are they killing Americans?” Read more.
A WORD FROM OUR PARTY CHAIR – RAYMOND LEMBKE
I don’t think anyone needs me to tell them that the top priority in the 2020 election is ending the debacle of donald trump as President of the United States. I don’t think it is hyperbole to say that we have a patriotic duty to make sure this criminal does not serve a second term. In saying that, I am not trying to invoke the Alt-Right notion of “patriotic duty” as an excuse for violence or lawlessness. There are perfectly lawful, non-violent things we can all do to make sure that Ohio’s electoral votes in 2020 are not cast for the most loathsome person ever to occupy the Oval Office. We’ll talk about those in future editions. Read more.
As Democrats and progressives, we need to be the first line of defense against the Trump/GOP agenda. One way to do that is to join the Ohio Democratic Party Truth Team.
