Jen has been published and quoted in multiple publications at the local, state, and national levels talking about the Texas political landscape. 



Jen Ramos has issues. 
Issues with Republicans, issues with losing the field as a Texas Democrat, and issues with a political landscape that many are frustrated by but few know about. But what is going on in Texas politics? Why do they keep asking us to vote but not tell us who or what we're voting for and how we got here. How does this even affect me?

These are questions Jen has answered over the years. From talking to fellow servers while working on 6th street to being put on speakerphone by her mom to explain things to her nursing coworkers, Jen realized that everyone is confused, frustrated, and exhausted. We know the world is going to the dogs but most people don't have a clue what's going on and no one wants to explain it. 

So Jen Has Issues was born. Join Jen and the occasional special guest as she breaks down what's going on and why you should give a sh*t.
