Some Bad Ideas Never Die

I’ll bet Republican leaning states and congressional districts are just chomping at the bit to vote for Democrats with this agenda:

  • Simplify and increase the progressivity of the tax code
  • Raise the cap on wages covered by FICA taxes.
  • Repeal the estate tax repeal
  • Undo the bankruptcy bill enacted by this administration
  • Paper ballots
  • Increase the minimum wage and index it to the CPI
  • Universal health care
  • Have Medicare run the Medicare drug plan
  • Improve access to daycare and other pro-family policies.
  • Pro-reproductive rights, getting rid of abstinence-only education, improving education about and access to contraception including the morning after pill, and supporting choice.
  • Kill faith-based funding.
  • Leave the states alone on issues like medical marijuana. Generally move towards "more decriminalization" of drugs
  • Increase CAFE standards. Some other environment-related regulation

  • Republicans in New Jersey have to do a better job of comparing their agenda with the agenda of the Democrat’s left-wing. An agenda supported by Democrats Bob Menendez, Camille Abate and Linda Stender.
