Responding to the accusation that the Democrats "have no plan", Nancy Pelosi has put forth her plan for the first 100 hours, should the Democrats take the House and she become Speaker.


Day One: Put new rules in place to "break the link between lobbyists and legislation."

Day Two: Enact all the recommendations made by the commission that investigated the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Time remaining until 100 hours: Raise the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour, maybe in one step. Cut the interest rate on student loans in half. Allow the government to negotiate directly with the pharmaceutical companies for lower drug prices for Medicare patients.

Notice that Pelosi's plans DO NOT INCLUDE:

impeachment of Bush and Cheney, reversal of the fascist Military Tribunal Act or the Patriot Acts, demands for documents from the White House so that Congressional oversight can be exercised, demands that the signing statements, which render Congress irrelevant, be stopped- in short, Pelosi and the Dems have NO PLANS to seriously challenge the Bush White House reign of terror vs. the American people.

Nothing about changing the tax laws back to reverse the flow of $$$ from poor to rich people, or restoring the privilege of bankruptcy. Nothing about restoring environmental protections. Nothing about withdrawal from Iraq, nothing about ensuring that Iran is not bombed gratuitously.

DO NOT BE TAKEN IN BY PELOSI AND THE DEMS! THEY HAVE MADE A DEAL WITH BUSH AND WILL NOT CHALLENGE HIM NO MATTER WHAT! THE WARMONGERS HAVE A STRANGLEHOLD ON THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS HAVE NO CHANCE.

THE LONGHOUSE COALITION (TLC) IS THE ONLY ANSWER!

We are a coalition of progressive candidates, uniting across party lines to take Congress. We are 40 strong and growing rapidly, with Greens, Independents, Democrats and one Republican. First item on our platform is impeaching Bush and Cheney.

We are actively seeking write-in candidates for many seats- the deadlines are late or nonexistent in most states. To learn more, visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Longhouse_Coalition_Info or email us at LonghouseCoalition@yahoo.com
