We are snowed in today so I will be taking a day off.......be back Friday. February 25th is the last day to register for the Maryland primaries and all Maryland pols are neo-liberals! WE NEED TO SEE LABOR AND JUSTICE CANDIDATES IN ALL RACES! Check with Open Congress to see how your pol voted on key issues!
This scorecard will allow middle/lower class voters to see who is working for them!
STRONG LABOR LEGISLATION - wage, benefits, unions, workplace rights and safety
STRONG RULE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR WHITE COLLAR CRIME - business fraud, entitlement fraud, government contract enforcement, rebuilding criminal justice system for monitoring, investigating, and prosecuting white collar crime, reclaiming money lost through fraud, and civil/social justice upheld
STRONG PROGRESSIVE TAX REFORM FOR INDIVIDUALS AND CORPORATIONS - No Buffett Rule for us......we don't want the rich paying as much as we do, maintaining income inequality..... we want to reverse income inequality with high rates at the top. Global corporations pay more taxes than small business and you and I
STRONG HEALTHCARE FOR ALL - ending the incredible waste and fraud, large profit-margins for healthcare and pharma institutions and doctors, expanding Medicare as the single-payer plan
STRONG PUBLIC EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FROM K - COLLEGE - we say 'no' to giving charters and for-profit schools more than just a small chunk of public money, yes to maintaining democratic and equal opportunity education, and tuition that is affordable
