Democrats Unveil Agenda

The Democrats have unveiled their agenda:

REAL SECURITY AT HOME AND OVERSEAS
Reclaim American leadership with a tough, smart plan to transform failed Bush Administration policies in Iraq, the Middle East and around the world. Require the Iraqis to take responsibility for their country and begin the phased redeployment of US forces from Iraq in 2006. Double the size of Special Forces to destroy Osama Bin Laden and terrorist networks like al Qaeda. Rebuild a state-of-the-art military capable of projecting power wherever necessary. Implement the bipartisan 9/11 Commission proposal to secure America’s borders and ports and screen 100% of containers. Fully man, train, and equip our National Guard and our police, firefighters and other first responders. Honor our commitments to our veterans.

BETTER AMERICAN JOBS - BETTER PAY
Prohibit the Congressional pay raise until the nation’s minimum wage is raised. End tax giveaways that reward companies for moving American jobs overseas.

COLLEGE ACCESS FOR ALL
Make college tuition deductible from taxes, permanently. Cut student loan interest rates. Expand Pell Grants.

ENERGY INDEPENDENCE - LOWER GAS PRICES
Free America from dependence on foreign oil and create a cleaner environment with initiatives for energy-efficient technologies and domestic alternatives such as biofuels. End tax giveaways to Big Oil companies and enact tough laws to stop price gouging.

AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE - LIFE-SAVING SCIENCE
Fix the Medicare prescription drug program, putting seniors first by negotiating lower drug prices and ending wasteful giveaways to drug companies and HMOs. Promote stem cell research that offers real hope to millions of American families who suffer from devastating diseases.

RETIREMENT SECURITY AND DIGNITY
Stop any plan to privatize Social Security, in whole or in part. Enact real pension reform to protect employees’ financial security from CEO corruption and mismanagement, including abuse of the bankruptcy laws. Expand personal savings incentives.


Notice anything different about the Democrats' agenda and the Republicans' agenda? (Hint: One Party actually plans to do something about stuff people care about)

Democrats represent the common man, i.e. the middle and lower class. Republicans represent the elite- the upper class.

Republics represent the rich's fear of the Other, be it minorities, terrorists, commies, or whatever the boogie-man du jour is.

Republicans will stop at nothing to keep the power in the hands of the rich. They will take on whatever random wedge issues that happen to be around to that end, such as teaming with evangelism or attacking blacks. But don't be fooled by that marraige of convenience with religious extremists and racists. The republican's core heart is not with any of those people, it is money and power and protecting it no matter what.

Now they run the country. And they are dismantling our system of checks and balances to create an autocracy. But they would probably play scrabble if thats what it took to keep their power. Whatever it takes. As long as the gravy train runs.

Walsh is an enabler and loyal follower of this disgusting party. Vote him and all of his ilk OUT in November!
