  • Maximum Wage
    We have a minimum wage to assure that working people are provided with at least a minimum salary. Why not a maximum wage, a "greed tax," to put an end to the absurd salaries paid to corporate executives? If no one could earn more than $1 million a year, including bonuses, and all earnings above that were taxed at a 100% level, corporate profits could be used more wisely and fairly, and salary distribution would be more fair. No one should need more than $1 million per year to lead a good, productive, happy life.

  • Stop Outsourcing Jobs
    Join with the American Jobs Alliance in fighting for jobs in America. Congress will soon vote on job-killing trade agreements with Korea, Panama and Colombia. These deals are like NAFTA and will cost hundreds of thousands of jobs, and adversely affect the lives of workers and farmers, here and abroad. Congress has a chance to stand up for jobs in the United States. We're calling on Congress to reject these treaties.

  • Obama's New Job Proposal
    As an Obama supporter, I believe that's it's time for him to stand up for the people that elected him. It's important that he proposes a bold new Job Plan. Dare to follow your beliefs and not water down your ideals to go for what might be acceptable to the other side.

  • Get America Back to Work: Stop the Middle Class Assault!
    The Congress, especially the Republican faction of the People's House, should cease and desist from fighting policies that would bring jobs to the workers in this country. It should be a criminal act for our legislators to only look out for the interest of a small population of this country, who just happen to have most of the money in the country.

  • Want a Real Economic Stimulus and Jobs Plan? Forgive Student Loan Debt!
    For over 30 years, the rich have gotten richer, the poor have gotten poorer, and the middle class is slowly but surely being squeezed out of existence. Instead of more of the same corporate welfare/"trickle-down" economics that have been an abysmal failure for the middle class, why not try a trickle-up approach to rebuilding our economy by targeting relief at those most likely to actually help grow the economy?

  • Help Warren Buffett raise taxes on the super rich.
    As billionaire investor Warren Buffett noted: "Our leaders have asked for 'shared sacrifice.' But when they did the asking, they spared me...and while most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks."

    We believe this is the perfect opportunity to ask Congress for $3 trillion dollars to rebuild this country's crumbling infrastructure, using eco-friendly materials and adding Wi-Fi where possible. This will also put millions of people to work who need jobs, and this in turn will boost the economy. It's a win-win-win all the way around. Now this is the time for President Obama to ignore the Republican/Tea Party of "NO" and to ask for everything he needs to rebuild this country to become a stronger beacon of hope for America and the world.

  • Tax Wall Street for Main Street
    Reckless Wall Street gambling cost Americans trillions in lost jobs and wealth and cost states billions in lost revenue. A Wall Street Financial Speculation Fee (FSF) would help take it back and put Wall Street to work rebuilding Main Street with revenue to create jobs and support critical public infrastructure like rebuilding crumbling bridges, schools, roads and transit systems..
