Please share this with your politicians IF they have ever used the words "austerity" or "entitlements":

Poll: Public opposes most spending cuts

thehill.com

A majority of the public opposes most spending cuts, especially cutbacks to education and popular entitlement programs, according to a new poll released Wednesday. The Gallup poll showed that over 60 percent oppose cuts to Medicare, Social Security and education funding.

Especially important if they have ever used those right wing framing words, austerity and entitlemnts, in the same sentence. That should narrow it down to about 98% of the politicians in office today.

What does the Democratic Party stand for?



Howard Dean lists these "Core Values" of the Democratic Party



1) Fairness and Equal Rights for all

2) Strength and Toughness

3) Fiscal Responsibility



These are demonstrated by providing Health Care for all.



Dean stresses the urgent need for us to express these values, on an emotional level, and not just in Policy Statements.



"People vote on their Values -- NOT on Position Papers!"

It is SO Important to pay attention to Down Ticket races, if we really want to put America on a New Track.

Even though Democrats won a slim majority in the House and Senate in 2006, the GOP has been able to block most of the New legislation that the Democrats have been authoring on behalf of the American People.

The Republican Strategy for the last 2 years, "Run against the Do-Nothing Congress in 2008".

How? By blocking nearly every Bill from Passing in the Senate, under the pretext of Debate, otherwise known as the Filibuster.

We have EARNED our Entitlements -- it's time to Raise the Ceiling

ENTITLEMENTS: Social Security and Medicare Programs

they used to call the "3rd Rail of Politic" --

Touch it and your Political career was dead!

I would assert NOW is the perfect time to Reframe those tired old Talking Points, since Congress and all the Media Pundits, all seem to be in such a "charitable" mood lately.
