The Hotspot, the online daily from the prestigious National Journal, awards Chris Weigant’s article “Thought Of The Day”
The Council on Foreign Relations quotes Chris Weigant in a recent article.
I very much liked the Social Security tax proposal; it speaks directly to those for whom the burden is most oppressive. The identity theft and privacy ideas are also intriguing. All in all, a good book with provocative ideas and a thoughtful roadmap for Democratic candidates.
And from the media:
Democrats need to offer well-targeted policies to working Americans in all states to regain favor. “Pick ten good issues and stick with them”. [The author] then offers 15 such issues, organizing each of them methodically into a summary, a list of pros and cons, and an effective soundbite that Democrats could use.... “Paine” is realistic about every one of these issues, and where there are disadvantages, he lists them without mincing words.
“How Democrats Can Take Back Congress” is a well-researched, clearly written book; “Paine’s” bibliography at the end shows his extensive reading on various issues to write this book. It is also a strident call to action for Democrats, much in the way that the original Paine’s pamphlet “Common Sense” was a call to action during the American Revolution.
This book is worth a look from anyone interested in the future of the Democratic Party.
We encourage you to do just that,
