Mr. President, Put the People’s Budget on the Table

Posted by Phoenix Woman on May 13, 2011

The Campaign for America’s Future has a message for us all:

There’s only one deficit reduction proposal clearly backed by the American majority: the “People’s Budget” from the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Yet none of the authors of the “People’s Budget” are currently part of the White House-led bipartisan budget negotiations. The Progressive Caucus has just written a letter to President Obama asking to be part of the budget talks. Now the President needs to hear from the rest of us in the American majority. Use the form below to send a letter to the President, saying “Put the People’s Budget on the Table.”

Exactly. Why does the commission have immensely wealthy inherited-wealth guys like Baucus and Simpson, yet nobody who is advocating intelligent deficit reduction?
