We are the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the largest Caucus of the Democratic Party.  We’ve been in existence since being founded in 1991, with a primary mission of giving a voice to the needs and aspirations of all Americans and to build a more just and humane society.

Today we held a press conference and unveiled the People’s Budget- a more realistic view of what can be done to balance the budget while making sure the burden is being borne by all, including the wealthiest 2% of our citizens who haven’t been shouldering their fair share.  

Tomorrow, Progressive Caucus Co-Chairs Raúl Grijalva and Keith Ellison, along with leading members of the Caucus will be here from noon til 2 pm EST to answer any questions you have about how we can work together to restore the American Dream. Members participating will be:

Rep. Raúl Grijalva (AZ), Co-Chair

Rep. Keith Ellison (MN), Co-Chair

Rep. Hank Johnson (GA), Whip

Rep. David Cicilline (RI)

Rep. Mike Honda (CA)

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (OH)

Rep. Jim McDermott (WA)

Rep. Jared Polis (CO)

Rep. Charlie Rangel (NY)

Rep. Peter Welch(VT)

We hope to see you here tomorrow as we start a conversation with you, the Progressive community so that we can work together to build a better country for us all.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
