Pocan Joins Mayor de Blasio and Progressive Partners to Launch The Progressive Agenda
WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (D-WI), 1st Vice-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, today joined New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and national progressive partners to launch The Progressive Agenda to Combat Income Inequality.
“We all know the political saying ‘it’s the economy, stupid.’ The Progressive Agenda shifts the national conversation to creating an economy which serves hardworking Americans by reforming our tax code and supporting working families. This agenda addresses the root causes of income inequality in America and puts meat on the bone of our progressive values. I’m proud to join Mayor de Blasio and my progressive colleagues to promote The Progressive Agenda. I look forward to working with this progressive coalition to make sure we have tax fairness and put an end to income inequality."
