The Congressional Progressive Caucus 'People's Budget'

Post by Guest on Tue May 24, 2011 8:28 am

Our message is therefore clear: a budget deal needs to be publicly debated, and needs to reflect the true values and views of the American people.

If the American people are so clear -- preserve the social programs, cut the military waste, end the wars and tax the rich -- then why doesn't our democracy deliver the results? Why do so many decisions in Washington seem to go against the public will?

The answer is simple. In America today, there are the people's votes, and there are the dollar's votes. The dollar's votes are very powerful, since they pay for the campaign ads and television time that politicians crave.

This is a great article. Must read. Also, read the second comment posted, one of the best descriptions of the current state of our country
I have ever heard.

This is the actual CPC Budget Proposal-

Check out the Corporate Tax reform section- also function 600. Best proposal put forth to date. I also like the Infrastructure Bank- great way to put America back to work, while improving our infrastructure.

I think its the best proposal as well, CLO. Getting republican support will be like pulling teeth though. It is too good to be true.

Ryan's "Path to Prosperity" has already passed in the House. It won't pass in the Senate (I hope), so if we are going to see anything like the "People's Budget" it is going to be a long, hard fight.
