Introduction to a Real Centrist Agenda

Wage Standards and Workplace Freedom
Balancing Work and Family
Health Care for All
Smart Growth and Clean Jobs
Tax and Budget Reform
Clean and Fair Elections

One small demographic, what Pew calls "Enterprisers" who make up just 9% of the population, are the ONLY group whose members generally oppose raising the minimum wage, the ONLY group which opposes guaranteed health care, the ONLY group that thinks outsourcing is good for the economy, and the ONLY group whose members generally think environmental regulations are not worth the costs.

What is startling is that this last small voting group, just 9% of the population, in combination with the corporate-backed rightwing apparatus, has been the tail wagging not only national and state politics but driving many policies with which even the majority of the Republican base disagrees.
