  •  Have you been paying attention the last 8 years? (9+ / 0-)

    The Democratic party has consitently let the people down on key issues. The War, torture, the Bankrupcy bill, energy policy, judicial appointments... and I could go on for days. A lot of the representitves who voted wrong on these issues like to give us lip service and are considered by many to be "liberal" and represent liberal constiuencies.

    Plus there is a big diffrence between this PAC and the Club for Growth. Namely that progressive positions are now mostly mainstream positions, we just need to continue to message correctly. I want to do whatever I can to help this effort.

        If you follow campaign donations you can see pretty clearly why certain democrats vote the way they do. Democrats vote with unsavory interests b/c that is how the game is played. By starting independent PACs like this we change the incentive game. Right now they need to bend over on certain votes to raise the money necessary for re-election. We need to change that equation.

          That if they do bend over, then their are consequence to pay.
