The Reading Project

Because even though I read a lot on my own, it helps to have some structure. There are a lot of books out there people.

We have to talk about what does it mean to be a progressive. We have to talk about what does it mean to be an American. So let’s spend a minute talking about what we believe.

We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we’re willing to fight for it. We’re willing to fight for it.

We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth, and we will fight for it.

We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality, and we will fight for it.

We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, that means raising the minimum wage, and we will fight for it. We will fight for it. And let me add to that, we believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them. That’s what it means. You bet.

We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt, and we are willing to fight for it. We are willing.

We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions, and we will fight for them. We will fight.

Oh, we believe… only I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014… We believe in equal pay for equal work, and we’re willing to fight for it. You bet.

Yup. We’re going to do this. We believe that equal means equal, and that’s true in marriage, it’s true in the workplace, it’s true in all of America, and we’re willing to fight for it. You bet.

We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform, and we’re willing to fight for it. That’s right.

Oh, and we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it.
