We can make a difference on these issues.

Right now our main issues include: getting medicaid expansion here in Pennsylvania, stopping all social security and medicare cuts at the federal level, and easing the massive debt of college students.

Check out the summit for Movement for the People at CSpan.

Cspan is currently showing segments from something called "Movement for the People" Summit. Here's their website.

I've been watching for the last hour and it features Dean Baker, great progressive economist who, along with people like Krugman and Stiglitz, kind of inform my world view. It also features Tim Carney, who is that rare libertarian who criticizes the role of money in politics and how it benefits big business at the expense of small businesses. 

You can watch it here. Here's what CSpan says about it.

A coalition of groups that calls itself the "Movement for the People" hosted an all-day conference focusing on the issue of money in politics and corporate power.  Among the discussions was a look at the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United versus the Federal Election Commission, which said corporations could spend unlimited amounts of money on political campaigns.
