• Rep. Jenkins is Against Equal Pay for Women

    During the 2013 State of the Union, Rep. Jenkins was seen shaking her head when the president mentioned the Paycheck Fairness Act. Rep. Jenkins has voted time and time again against women making a living equal to their efforts.

  • I've been added to MSNBC's "36 Women to Watch in 2014"!

    I am humbled but very excited to be in the company of these amazing women, including Wendy Davis running for Governor in Texas, Allison Lundergan Grimes who is opposing McConnell in Kentucky, and Senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina.

  • EMILY's List

    I'm very excited to say that I am #OnTheList! The powerhouse of over 3 million people fighting for women's rights believe I have mounted a promising campaign and that Lynn Jenkins, who voted against equal pay for women, can be defeated

  • Women's Campaign Fund

    I've been endorsed by Women's Campaign Fund. They are a nonpartisan organization that is dedicated to dramatically increasing the number of women in elected office who support reproductive health choices for all.

Margie Wakefield for Kansas

A few weeks ago, I told you about Lynn Jenkins' Child Tax Credit bill. Yesterday, it passed the House. Her bill hands a tax break to families making between $110,000 and $205,000 per year, but neglects our poorest families by failing to extend their credits. She's pushing six million American children further into poverty, and, worse yet, she's forgotten the families of 400,000 veterans who rely on these tax credits. She's ignoring the hard-working families that are struggling financially. I think an important question needs to be asked: Who is Lynn Jenkins representing? Earlier this week, Lynn Jenkins said that her bill "is designed to help struggling families pay for the rising costs of raising children." In a district with a median income near $45,000, how many families making above $110,000 are struggling? We ought to be helping the parents Jenkins cuts out of Child Tax Credit benefits, parents who are struggling for each and every dollar they need to raise their children. We shouldn't be digging them an even deeper hole. What do you think? I need you to share this post, and tell Lynn Jenkins that cutting benefits for hard-working, struggling families will not be tolerated.

Be careful what you wish for... Lynn Jenkins and her Tea Party friends have tried over 50 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act and failed. She has spent no time trying to fix any problems and she has indicated that she doesn't want anything short of destroying Obamacare. She may get her wish through no effort of hers. Yesterday, two conservative judges formed a majority on a Federal Appeals panel that could end the ACA because of nothing much more than a typo. It's a bit more complicated than that, but that's the gist of it. If this ruling stands, Lynn Jenkins will get what she wished for and here's what that means: Either health insurance premiums in Kansas will skyrocket for every one of us, or insurance companies will go back to not covering pre-existing conditions, capping lifetime benefits as they see fit, sending families into bankruptcy...the way it used to be. Thousands of Kansans will have to return to the hospital emergency rooms for their primary care, leaving the rest of us to pick up the tab...the way it used to be. We need to fix what's wrong with Obamacare, not spend time destroying everything that's good about it. I've had enough of this obstructionism! Have you had enough? I want to know what you think. Share this post with your friends and family, and let's get as many people as we can in on this conversation.

Your Thoughts

I've already told you what I think about a handful of issues. I want to know where you stand. Please take the surveys below and join the conversation! 

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has estimated that an increase in the federal minimum wage to $10.10 would pull 900,000 Americans out of poverty and increase the net income of 16.5 million. CBO also estimates that it could reduce employment by 500,000 jobs. I'd like everyone to take the survey below and tell me what you think. Is it better to raise incomes and pull nearly a million people out of poverty at the expense of half a million jobs that currently pay $7.25. Or is it better to keep the status quo?
If you answered other to the previous question, please explain why.
A recent poll done by the Wind Coalition and the Climate + Energy Project says that 91% of Kansas voters are strongly supportive of using renewable energy. Are you in support of using renewable energy?
