Yesterday, the Congressional Progressive Caucus introduced a bill to help turn our economy around. It's based heavily on the Contract for the American Dream—a plan that 130,000 of us crafted, and 300,000 endorsed.
Tomorrow, at 6:15 p.m. Eastern, we're hosting a live streaming online forum about the bill—the 99% Act—with Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chairs Reps. Raúl Grijalva and Keith Ellison. This is a great chance to hear from, and interact with, two of the leading progressive champions in the House.
Can you join in online tomorrow, Thursday the 15th?
We'll broadcast live from Washington, D.C., and you'll be able to join in the discussion, ask questions, and see what others have to say.
Reps. Grijalva and Ellison will be joined in a roundtable discussion by two everyday heroes who have stepped up to speak out for change. Tiffany Mellers, an unemployed Army reservist and mother of three, and Molly Katchpole, a 22-year-old recent college graduate who succeeded in forcing Bank of America to drop its monthly $5 debit card fee.
They'll discuss how the 99% Act takes ideas from the Contract for the American Dream and puts them into a comprehensive bill for fixing our broken economy—from creating 5 million jobs in two years, to ending the war in Afghanistan, to a new tax on millionaires and Wall Street greed.1
