Resolution in Support of the Restore the American Dream Act

This week, Melissa introduced a resolution in support of the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ Restore the American Dream for the 99% Act.

This legislation in the U.S. Congress, introduced by Reps. Ellison, Grijalva and others, would put Americans back to work, creating more jobs and improving the overall health of the American economy. The proposal would create an emergency jobs program to repair public schools and hire childcare workers, teachers, first responders and staff our national parks. Estimates suggest this could create as many as 2.3 million jobs in 2012, while also reducing the deficit. The bill would increase taxes for millionaires and billionaires, repeal tax loopholes for oil companies, and reduce spending by the Department of Defense.

  1. Melissa once again proves why we need more progressive legislators in office. Kudos to her and as her re-election gets under way, all voters of her district: Unite behind her.
