Robert L. Borosage is the president of the Institute for America’s Future and co-director of its sister organization, the Campaign for America’s Future. The organizations were launched by 100 prominent Americans to challenge the rightward drift in U.S. politics, and to develop the policies, message and issue campaigns to help forge an enduring majority for progressive change in America. Most recently, Borosage spearheaded the Campaign’s 2006 issues book, StraightTalk 2006, providing activists and candidates with distilled messages on kitchen table concerns, from jobs to affordable health care. Borosage also helped to found and chairs the Progressive Majority Political Action Committee, developing a national base of small donors and skilled activists. Progressive Majority recruits, staffs, and funds progressive candidates for political office.

Mr. Borosage writes widely on political, economic and national security issues for a range of publications including The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Philadelphia Inquirer. He is a Contributing Editor at The Nation magazine, and a regular contributor to The American Prospect magazine. He is a frequent commentator on television and radio, including Fox Morning News, RadioNation, National Public Radio, C-SPAN and Pacifica Radio. He teaches on presidential power and national security as an adjunct professor at American University’s Washington School of Law.

A graduate of Yale Law School, with a graduate degree in International Affairs from George Washington University, Borosage left the practice of law to found the Center for National Security Studies in 1974. The Center focused on the tension between civil rights and the national security powers and prerogatives of the executive branch. It played a leading role in the efforts to investigate the intelligence agencies in the 1970s, curb their abuses, and hold them accountable in the future. At the Center, he helped to write and edit two books, The CIA File and The Lawless State.

In 1979, Borosage became Director of the Institute for Policy Studies, a research institute that drew its inspiration and fellowship from the major democratic movements of our time – anti-war, women’s, environmental and civil rights movements. Borosage helped to found and guide Countdown 88, which succeeded in winning the congressional ban on covert action against Nicaragua. Under Borosage’s direction, the Institute expanded its fellowship, launched a successful publications program, and developed a new Washington School for congressional aides and public interest advocates.

In 1988, Borosage left the Institute to serve as senior issues advisor to the presidential campaign of the Reverend Jesse Jackson. He traveled the country with Jackson, writing speeches, framing policy responses, and providing debate preparation and assistance. He went on to advise a range of progressive political campaigns, including those of Senator Carol Moseley-Braun, Barbara Boxer and Paul Wellstone. "

The Sanders Challenge Sanders calls for an end to the corporate-defined trade and tax policies that have racked up unprecedented and ruinous trade deficits while shipping good jobs abroad. He is a leader in the effort to stop fast track and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which is supported by the Democratic president, the Republican congressional leadership and the business lobby.

Government Sweatshops: A Time for the President to Act Carrying a sign reading "Hiring: A President who will sign a $15 +Union Executive Order," these workers are calling on President Obama to lead and put government on the side of workers. They want an executive order that would give preference in government procurement and licensing to companies that pay a living wage with benefits, and respect their workers' right to organize.

A Sober Look at the Good News in February Jobs Report The Fed's actions -- from bailing out the banks to its Quantitative Easing programs -- have boosted stocks and saved Wall Street, but the benefits have been slow to reach Main Street. Workers have not yet shared in the recovery. Household income is down, not up since the recession. The vast majority of Americans have not recovered the wealth lost in that calamity.

Why the Country Needs a Populist Challenger in the Democratic Primaries Polls show Democrats want a contest, not a coronation, for their presidential nomination. There are two compelling reasons for a challenge in the Democratic primaries: We need a big debate about the direction of the country, and a growing populist movement would benefit from a populist challenge to Hillary.

Low Wage Workers: "We Can't Breathe" When people move, smart politicians listen. The demonstrations across the nation after Ferguson and Garner, the growing protests of low-wage workers risking jobs because they simply can't breathe suggest that people are starting to move. The question soon will be who stands with those in motion and who stands with a status quo that clearly cannot hold.

On the Fiscal Extortion; Just Say No The grand bargain is anything but a bargain. The annual deficit is down while income inequality has gone through the roof. Austerity on top of endless wars & climate change is the last thing we need.

The Austerity Trap and the Jobs Deficit Democrats need to argue on jobs first as part of building a new strategy for the economy. They must challenge Romney's hysteria and hypocrisy on debt not with a better austerity plan, but with a plan for an economy that works for working people. A mandate from voters for jobs first will be vital when the lame-duck Congress confronts the fiscal train wreck after the election, and jobs first is the only sensible solution.

Invoking Fake Job Creators to Cut Taxes on the Rich When taxes were raised during Bill Clinton's presidency, conservatives predicted a deep recession. Instead, the economy boomed and private investment took off. When taxes were cut under President George W. Bush, private investment and job growth were disappointing. But conservatives won't let the facts get in the way of their gospel.

Whose Side Are You On: The Moral Clarity of Occupy Wall Street Will this movement be a factor in the 2012 elections? It already is. Will it make clear demands? It already has. Whose side are you on? Wall Street or kids in the street? The top 1% or the 99%? It doesn't get clearer than that.

The end of the middle class? Both sides fail to address the scope of our challenge. Republicans seem to believe that simply rolling back Obama's reforms and returning to former President George W. Bush's economy will set us straight. But those are the policies that drove us off the cliff. They weren't working for most Americans even when the economy was growing.

Jobs: ACTION NOW The White House cleverly surprised observers with the size of the program -- $450 billion over one year, a faster spending rate than the original Recovery Act. But no one should be confused; this is a modest plan, a first step at best. It is too small to have much effect on unemployment, and too limited to help put the economy on track.

Obama's Capitulation to the Tea Party The raw deal sets a precedent that Republican leaders are already celebrating: from now on, they boast, every debt ceiling vote will be the occasion for holding the economy hostage to more extreme demands. A balanced budget constitutional amendment. A two-thirds vote for any tax hike on the rich. Privatization of Social Security. The demands will get more extreme over time.

Stop Disastrous Debt Deal. Save the American Dream Americans have learned in the past few days that conservative Republicans in Congress are willing to risk default on America's financial obligations, to protect the tax breaks for the rich and force cuts to our retirement security. Republicans would rather break our government's Social Security commitments, create chaos in the global financial markets and throw millions more out of work than accept any compromise.

Obama's Deficits: Progressive Priorities, Conservative Context The only way out of this fix is for citizens to organize, for a movement to demand the common sense reforms the country needs and Washington avoids.

Bushwacking Obama: Conservatives Seek to Trap President on Social Security Reforming Social Security by raising the retirement age and cutting benefits -- however gaudily packaged to make the system more "progressive" -- is unpopular not just with liberals, but with independents, conservatives and Tea Partiers. Americans do not want politicians to mess with Social Security, the one secure leg left to retirement.

Was Bernie Madoff the Exception or the Rule? Were the big banks all knowingly running Ponzi schemes? That's the question that arises from the stunning hearings held this week by the Senate Permanent Committee on Investigations, chaired by Senator Carl Levin, on the collapse of Washington Mutual, the largest thrift failure in the U.S. Faced with looking like fools or knaves, the barons of the big banks have chosen, not surprisingly, the fool.

Symbolic Blather: Washington's Congenital Disease The best example of this is the bill championed by Blue Dogs in the House and Senate""the conservative Democrats that the media labels "moderates"""called "paygo." Paygo is the Washington shorthand for a rule that requires the Congress to pay for any expansion of entitlements (guaranteed benefits like Social Security Medicare) or decrease in taxes. It's supposed to "discipline" the Congress on spending.

Gut Check Time on Shackling Wall St How much the banking lobby has already won! This is what the Administration's plan has left out: Nothing real is done about compensation schemes. Exotic derivatives and credit default swaps are not banned. Rating agencies are still paid by the financial houses they rate. Banks too big to fail are to be monitored, not broken up. Oversight of the system is left to the Fed which was designed to insulate banks from democracy.

Obama's Grade at 100? What About Our Grade? Rather than just grading the president, I suggest we might profitably assess our own 100 days. Obama has stormed the national and world stages in his first weeks. But how have we done--particularly the progressives who have such a large stake in the success of this president--in relation to Obama? He has demonstrated remarkable mastery of the powers of the presidency to lead the country. Have we mastered the power of citizens?

Arm the COP on the Bank Beat Cynicism is easy. The Wall Street "financial services" sector has been by far the largest contributor in every U.S. election cycle for the last 20 years, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Individual and political action committee donations from Wall Street in 2007 and 2008 totaled $463.5 million, compared with $163.8 million from the health-care industry and $75.6 million from energy companies.

Here's How Progressives Can Ensure Obama's Success. Not since Lyndon Johnson's Great Society and Ronald Reagan's conservative rollback has a president proposed anything this ambitious. If passed, it will mark a new era of progressive governance. And yet, in sad testament to how deeply we have fallen, its greatest weakness is that it is not bold enough.
