Progressive Voter's Guide to the Economy

Good article on Alternet about nine major issues about which progressives are concerned today and the records of Obama and McCain on all of them.

They are: 1. SPIRALING INEQUALITY AND ASSAULTS ON UNIONS, 2. HOUSING AND DEBT CRISIS, 3. EXCESSIVE EXECUTIVE INCOMES, 4. OFFSHORING AND TRADE POLICIES THAT FAIL FAMILIES, 5. DETERIORATING INFRASTRUCTURE, 6. EQUAL PAY, 7. PAID FAMILY LEAVE AND WORKPLACE FLEXIBILITY, 8. MINIMUM WAGE, 9. TAXES AND DEFICITS.

Hey, Alternet, what about single payer health care, addressing global warming, promoting alternative energy, ending the wars, and regulation of Wall Street? What about restoring the Fairness Act and breaking up media conglomerates? What about ending domestic spying? What about restoring the right to peaceful demonstration? What about closing Guantanamo and restoring habeas corpus?

All of these have a bearing on our economy.
