Been getting a couple emails about this from liberals who don't believe that it really exists since mentioning it in The Truth About The Draft Scare. Well, hate to disappoint you but it does.
The Progressive Caucus is hosted in on the house web site of extreme liberal Democrat Bernie Saunders with the purpose of:
"U.S. CONGRESS PROGRESSIVE CAUCUS - STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The members of the Progressive Caucus share a common belief in the principles of social
and economic justice, non-discrimination, and tolerance in America and in our
relationships with other countries.
We also seek to embody and give voice to national priorities which reflect the interests and
needs of all the American people, not just the wealthy and the powerful.
Our purpose is to present thoughtful, positive, practical solutions to the problems
confronting America and the world.
In the post-Cold War era, we believe our nation’s priorities must change with the times and
reflect new realities. Accordingly, we support curbs on wasteful, inefficient government
spending at the Pentagon and elsewhere, a more progressive tax system in which wealthier taxpayers and corporations pay their fair share, adequate funding for social programs that are designed to extend help to low and middle-income Americans in need, and trade policies that increase the exports of more American products and encourage the creation of jobs and investment in America."
In other words, redistribute wealth from those that earn it to those that do not, increase dependency upon socialized programs and socialism and have the government create jobs.
Welcome to the socialist heart of the Democratic Party.
