Progressives mount a Challenge to Obama In Iowa

For three years progressives have been trying to get President Barack Obama to live up to their expectations. And so far according to the founder of Progressive Democrats of America, they’ve been disappointed. That’s why Tim Carpenter is organizing people to go to the Iowa caucus and vote for “uncommitted” as a way challenge President Obama. “We’re organizing uncommitted slates to go to the caucus on Tuesday to challenge Barack Obama because he gave up on his promise to single payer (health care). He took too long to get troops out of Iraq. There’s still troops in Afghanistan. And we need a financial transaction tax.” Carpenter’s call to action can be backed up with political muscle. Progressive Democrats of America was formed out of the people who fueled the Presidential campaigns of Howard Dean and Dennis Kucinich. Carpenter appeared with the Reverend Jesse Jackson at an organizing meeting in a Des Moines area church this week. They both endorsed an “inside outside” strategy — asking activists to go to the caucuses and work inside the Democratic party as well as participating in the “occupy” movement that works outside the party.

Great News! – The Tea Party Tax Increase is Coming – Don’t You just LOVE those IDIOTS!

Led by the Tea Partiers in the Republican Party – the House of Representatives is expected to vote down a 2-month extension of the payroll tax cut for 160 million Americans. It was an extension agreed on by both Republican and Democratic Senators – one that was approved by the White House – and one that Boehner himself supported when it initially passed on Saturday. Shortly after though – his Tea Party Republicans went into revolt. They’re unhappy that the plan is only a 2-month extension – and unhappy that a lot of the far right-wing goodies had been stripped out of the bill in the Senate. So, Tea Party Republicans voted to screw-over 160 million Americans tonight with a $1,000 tax hike that kicks in in two weeks, and is ONLY paid by people making less than $106,000 a year. You can call it the “Tea Party Tax Increase”!
