• Pass HR589 Tier I Unemployment Extension for 99ers
    The long-term unemployed need help to survive now. We need to speak out with one voice to urge the President and Congress not to abandon those who have no income through no fault of their own. Foreclosure, homelessness, hunger, unmet medical needs and even suicide are our reality.

  • Cut The Pentagon's Budget First
    The astronomical cost of the U.S. Military, including the hundreds of billions of dollars the Pentagon is now spending waging wars and building weaponry, is the most significant reason our Federal budget is running an unsustainable deficit. The U.S. needs to balance its budget by reducing our military expenditures rather than by making cuts to other Federal programs.

  • The War on Drugs
    We constantly hear about the huge expenditures by our government to fight against illegal drugs. We hear about violent behavior by drug users and drug cartels. We know those drug cartels rake in billions of dollars. Much of that money could provide tax relief for the USA, if drugs were legal, controlled and TAXED!

  • Federal Budget Amendment to the Constitution of the United States
    Proposed: The Constitution should be amended to require Congress to have the next year's Federal Budget on the President's desk for signing by midnight on the 10th working day prior to the end of the current fiscal year. Further, the amendment should stipulate that if Congress fails to deliver this budget on time as required, no member of Congress is allowed to stand for re-election at the expiration of his/her term. This would hold for both federal budgets of a Representative's term and all 6 budgets of a Senator's term.

  • Prop. 13 Rollback in California
    In the late 70's conservative groups bankrolled "Prop. 13" that reduced property taxes, and mandated that any tax increases in Ca. required a 2/3 vote in the legislature. Since then the result has been devastating for schools and social programs in the state. There is now a $26 B. deficit in the state. A change to the concept of "majority rule" of 50% vote is needed.
