What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

In state after state, Republican Party super-majorities have enthusiastically used their power to pummel the rights and livelihoods of working people... the question:

Why haven't the Democrats with their super-majorities wielded their power to defend and expand the rights of working people with the same enthusiasm the Republicans have used in attacking us?


Check out the map in this article:

Democrats are playing us for suckers and fools using "Bait and Switch" politics.



There can be only one explanation for what is going on:

The same corporate lobbyists are controlling both the Republicans and Democrats... bribing the Republicans to attack; bribing the Democrats to do nothing.
