Brown Bag Lunch Vigil - Rep. Susan Davis - CA-53

Our September BBLV asks include:

Bring on the Robin Hood Tax!

On Monday September 17, Congressional Progressive Caucus Co-Chair Keith Ellison and  co-sponsors will introduce the "Inclusive Prosperity Tax". The Robin Hood Tax, also known as the Financial Speculation Tax (FST), would generate hundreds of billions of dollars. That money could provide funding for jobs to kick-start the economy and get America back on its feet. It could help save the social safety net in the US and around the world. And it will come from fairer taxation of the financial sector.

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 a couple of years PDA and its allies have shaken up the political status-quo on issues from ending the Iraq war, voter rights, protecting Social Security, a full employment economy, national healthcare and economic justice.
