In her opening remarks, Jennifer told the audience, “We believe that our democracy could use some work; because we all believe that our government, that we pay for, with our taxes, should work for us.”

“It’s time to come together. American taxpayers do not deserve to pay into a system that is rigged against them,” Jennifer continued, “F**k that!” She shared a personal story that reminded the audience “to never stop rooting for each other and… that as a united front, there is nothing we cannot conquer… even Mom at Christmas, or especially a wedding.”
