Making promises, keeping promises....

In order to succeed in 2008, Democrats are going to have to fulfill campaign promises made during the 2006 elections....

Congress needs a thorough cleaning; breaking the link between lobbyists and legislation with no new deficit spending.

The recommendations of the independent, bipartisan 9/11 Commission need to be implemented.

Raise the minimum wage and refuse to pass a pay raise for Congress until there is an increase in the minimum wage.

Make health care more affordable for all. Begin by fixing the Medicare prescription drug program, putting seniors first by negotiating lower drug prices.

Promote stem cell research to offer real hope to the millions of American families who suffer from devastating diseases.

Energize America by achieving energy independence. Begin by rolling back the multi-billion dollar subsidies for Big Oil.

Guarantee a dignified retirement by fighting any attempt to privatize Social Security.

It's easy to make promises. Keeping those promises just might be a bit more difficult.

Sprouting testicles is fine for the moment..... as long as we can keep them from "shrinking" back into oblivion!

I will call you from work tomorrow if there isn't a post by the time I wake up. You have been warned. Running, not walking, remember?
