  •  Tell me more about No Labels ... (1+ / 0-)

    I'm working with on voting rights issues in my Republican county and someone suggested getting No Labels involved.

    I spent time on their website and didn't see anything obviously problematic. Their proposals for improving congress and the executive branch look pretty good. I'm a liberal D and don't agree with everything but that's the point.

    What lie buried beneath the surface that troubles you?

    Thanks.

      Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.

      Who are they? Here's a good piece...

      But what does No Labels represent? Its three co-founders are a Republican Party operative named Mark McKinnon, a right-leaning Democratic Party operative named Nancy Jacobson, and a billionaire-funded operative named David Walker. These three Washington insiders say they'll represent ordinary Americans against ... Washington insiders...

      ...Walker is a longtime associate of right-wing billionaire Pete Peterson (who, as his press staff never fails to reminds me, sometimes also funds less political areas of economic research through his Foundation.) Walker's work with Peterson, however, has been dedicated for many many years to the single-minded pursuit of a policy package that would cut Social Security and Medicare benefits while simultaneously lowering the top tax rate for the wealthiest Americans.

      There's plenty on the web about these mutts. It's a front group.



      Perpetual crisis means never having to say you're sorry.
