Support the CPC Budget for All

Tell your Representative we need the "Budget for All!"

Failed federal leadership caused and deepened the Great Recession, perilous inequality, and other economic crises and reversals. The Ryan Plan would double-down on these failed policies, and risk double-dip recession. The President's proposals are a step in the right direction, but don't do enough. We need the "Budget for All," strong leadership and wise policies to get America moving again.

Please jot down the phone numbers, and call--if you can--then email.
You can use the talking points from the suggested letter on your call.
Calls count more than email, although both are important. Thank you!

Tell your Representative and Senators that the "Budget for All" would:

• End emergency war funding beginning in FY '14, reduce base discretionary defense spending.
• Bring our troops home and realign national security strategy, saving $1.1 trillion over 10 years.
• Invest $2.9 trillion in jobs, manufacturing, alternative energy, entrepreneurs and small business.
• Let Bush-era tax cuts expire for the highest incomes in '12, enact a high net-worth surcharge.
• Treat capital gains and qualified dividends as ordinary income.
• Limit regressive itemized deductions for high earners.
• End corporate welfare, establish accountability to discourage--not subsidize--harmful activity.
• Reduce deficits $6.8 trillion, cut spending $749 billion, reduce debt to 62.3% of GDP by '22.
• Much more! (See the "Budget for All" for more details and rationale.)

Progressive Democrats of America (http://www.pdamerica.org)

Progressive Democrats of America

Progressive Democrats of America was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and our country. We seek to build a party and government controlled by citizens, not corporate elites-with policies that serve the broad public interest, not just private interests. As a grassroots PAC operating inside the Democratic Party, and outside in movements for peace and justice, PDA played a key role in the stunning electoral victories of November 2006 and 2008. Our inside/outside strategy is guided by the belief that a lasting majority will require a revitalized Democratic Party built on firm progressive principles.

For over two decades, the party declined as its leadership listened more to the voices of corporations than those of Americans. PDA strives to rebuild the Democratic Party from the bottom up-from every congressional district to statewide party structures to the corridors of power in Washington, where we work arm in arm with the Congressional Progressive Caucus. In just five years, PDA and its allies have shaken up the political status quo-on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Medicare for all, voter rights, accountability, and economic and environmental justice.
