    Democrats must pursue a progressive agenda

    Lisa McCormick is asking Democrats in Congress to sign on to eight bills that define a better future for America and show the nation what life could be like with a progressive majority running things instead of the greedy and corrupt cartel of billionaires who are driving the Republican agenda.

    lisa-mccormick_20101.jpgResisting the Trump Republicans alone will not move our country forward, so Democrats should campaign on a bold agenda that creates an America that works for everyone. If Democrats want to take our country back from the billionaire class and Republicans in 2018, we need to speak to the concerns of our people. 

    We're fighting for a Congress that will put people before profits in an America where everyone has access to health care, free public education, and a job that pays a living wage. A livable planet, justice, peace and prosperity were handed down to us and we must preserve them to pass them on to our children and future generations.

    McCormick said all Democrats in Congress should co-sponsor the following bills:

    Health Care: H.R. 676 Medicare For All Act, introduced by Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich).

    Education: H.R. 1880 College for All Act of 2017, introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (WA-07).

    Worker Rights: H.R.15 - Raise the Wage Act, Representatives Bobby Scott (D-VA) and Keith Ellison (D-MN).

    Women’s Rights: H.R.771 - Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH Woman) Act of 2017, introduced by Rep. Lee, Barbara (D-CA-13).

    Voting Rights: H.R.2840 - Automatic Voter Registration Act, introduced by Rep. David N. Cicilline (D-RI-1).

    Criminal Justice and Immigrant Rights: Justice is Not For Sale Act of 2017, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) in 2017.

    Tax on Wall Street: H.R. 1144 - Inclusive Prosperity Act, introduced by Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN).

    Climate Change: Environmental Justice Act of 2017’ introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (WA-07).

    Please join us by urging every Democrat in Congress to support Medicare for All, college tuition for all, a $15 per hour minimum wage, equal access to abortion, expanded voting rights, ending private prisons, taxing Wall Street and protecting our environment.

  • signed Stop political corruption 2019-06-24 12:41:41 -0400
    Getting money out of elections is the single MOST important issue, because CORRUPTION and LEGAL BRIBERY affects everything else.

    Stop political corruption

    Lisa McCormick believes it is vital for Americans to eliminate the corrupt influence of dirty money in politics with an affordable system of fair & clean elections. Eliminating political payoffs is the only way to put on a public agenda items such as state-funded child care, paid family leave, universal health insurance, free tuition at public colleges and universities.

    Full disclosure of campaign contributions, government contracts and potential conflicts of interest is a significant way to mitigate the evil of secret influence over public money, power and jobs.

    “Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases,” declared Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court Louis Dembitz Brandeis. “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.”

    Simply stated, what you don’t know can hurt. Secrecy should not be allowed when it comes to the public’s right to know about the business of public entities and those who control  them and we must end the practice of allowing any kind of bribery to influence the decisions of elected officials.

    Fix Social Security

    Social Security is funded through deductions to everyone’s paychecks. We pay in while we’re working, and then collect benefits when we retire but not everyone pays equally.

    While 94% of American workers pay Social Security tax on every dollar in their paycheck, the very richest Americans stop paying Social Security taxes on taxable earnings over $132,900 but it does not have to be that way.

    By simply requiring upper-income Americans to pay the same tax rate as middle-class families, Social Security's benefits could be expanded, and its funding would remain in balance for decades beyond the longest projections.

    Scrap the cap!

    Require upper-income Americans to pay the same tax rate as the 94% of American working  middle-class families that make less than $132,900 a year. This adjustment will keep Social Security solvent in perpetuity.
