Congress has recessed until after the election, leaving important issues such as the unaffordable Bush tax cut policy, pay equity and the final 2010 - 2010 Appropriations bills for the "lame duck" session. It also means that unresolved priorities like additional jobs programs, ENDA, climate change and immigration reform will be decided by the winners of the 2010 elections and the 112th Congress. The 111th Congress will return on November 15th, giving us a mix of retired, defeated and returning Members of Congress.
One Nation Rally
ADA activists joined tens of thousands on the National Mall on 10-2-10 for the "One Nation" rally, to restore hope in jobs, education, and to focus on 11-2-10! ADA was there to participate in the rally, network with activists from all over the nation, and prepare for the upcoming election. More photos here!
With Congress out of session, the choices for the 2010 election are becoming clear. Do we want to move forward with a progressive agenda for change, or do we want to reward those who have sought to block change at every opportunity, promising repeal of health care bill, prevention of worker's rights to organize, promotion of endless war in Afghanistan, and prevention of the expansion of legal equality for all of our citizens? Whether it is Sen. Barbara Boxer in California, Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher in Ohio, Rep. Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania or Attorney General Andrew Cuomo of New York, liberal voters have clear choices. And in the all important House of Representatives, Rep. Phil Hare (D-IL), Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (D-OH), and Rep. Steve Kagen (D-WI) have been progressive heroes. And Mayor Steve Pougnet (D-CA) and Dan Seals (D-IL) have opportunities to become new liberal leaders in the new Congress by replacing conservative obstructionists.
Our goal; register citizens, energize activists, educate voters and support liberal candidates!
