Bleeding Heartland: Braley to start a populist caucus in the U.S. House
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Bruce Braley is once again showing leadership in Congress. Braley sent
a letter to colleagues in the U.S. House about becoming a founding
member of a populist caucus to help the middle class and working
families. The letter outlines six goals... "1. Fighting for working
families and the middle class through the establishment of an
equitable tax structure, fair wages, proper benefits, a level playing
field at the negotiating table, and secure, solvent retirement plans."
... Both John Edwards and Mike Huckabee were described as being
populists during their presidential runs and that helped them do well
in the Iowa Caucuses. This shows the issues outlined have some support
on both sides of the aisle.
