MEET JACK HUGHES-HAGEMAN
A Guy Who Doesn't Give Up
An hour after being shot in 1912 Theodore Roosevelt exclaimed to a large crowd: "It takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose"
Jack Hughes-Hageman is a Progressive Bull Moose Republican. Bull Moose Republicans feel it is wrong the government has given vast amounts of welfare to corporations while grandparents in our nation struggle with the predatory prices of insulin.
Bull Moose feel that the current government model favors a small number of very rich people who don't actually work very much. Bull Moose think its a tall tale to say your share was hard won when you were born with capital and grew up with wealth.
Bull Moose are tired of working Americans getting ripped off and short changed. Bull Moose want something more for their families, to thrive not just survive.
A Bull Moose knows there is something a thousand times worse than the financial cost of the status quo. The real cost is the thousands of people who will die without wholehearted changes to the way our nation approaches healthcare, homelessness, poverty, and education.
Bull Moose refuse to give up and let these people suffer and die without a fight, and we are here to fight for them. Bull Moose believe that we have the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Jack is a Progressive Bull Moose, are you?
