She is beloved by residents for the transformative constituent services she provides, and for successfully fighting the billionaires and corporations that tried to pollute her district.</p> “We already know that corporations have tainted our democratic process on all levels of the government, not just on the federal level. For us, this (impeachment) is about our way of life… This won’t be the last crooked CEO that runs for President of the United States. So, it is really about putting our democracy first, putting our way of life first… If you really want to show your patriotism, this is the time to do it.” Congresswoman Rashid Tlaib (D-Michigan) <p> </p> “No transformative change has truly happened because of something happening in the United States Congress or out of the White House. It always happens because of grassroots movement work outside of the halls, outside of the Oval Office.” Congresswoman Rashid Tlaib (D-Michigan) <a href="https://ralphnaderradiohour.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/RALPH-NADER-RADIO-HOUR-EP-293-TRANSCRIPT.pdf"> RALPH NADER RADIO HOUR EP 293 TRANSCRIPT</a> (Right click to download)
