John Bauer: Democratic majority
January 31, 2007
The congressional Democratic majority is on the right track with their list of goals. It would embrace the esteem of Republican leaders, and others, to get on board, instead of trying to dilute basic or minimum wage legislation with attachments.
A rejuvenated, new congress could also create laws to bring more citizens into active American participation.
New laws could: forbid use of voter-databases to select jurors, and there will be more registered voters; require public employees to pay into Social Security and the system grows; re-affiliate with the International Criminal Court, even if it means prohibiting the death penalty and enabling criminal prosecutions against Americans; and initiate a single-payer-plan (government agency) for all American health care.
