The points listed below are excerpted for a CPUSA post on June 25, 2011. They seem to mirror President Obama's agenda and re-election strategy. The only major difference of how far they are willing to go with it. For instance, Obama wants to raise the top tax rate on the rich, but not to the 70% level. President Obama also wants to cut military spending, but not by half. The agenda of the CPUSA is almost a clone of President Obama's. The main difference is the level they are willing to take it too. The President Obama and the CPUSA are marching lockstep towards socialism. The CPUSA just wants to get there faster.
Save the nation! Tax corporations! Tax the rich!
We Say Enough is Enough!
End the Bush-era tax giveaways to banks, corporations and wealthy individuals.
Close corporate tax loopholes, especially billions in tax subsidies for the oil companies.
Raise new revenues by restoring 70% tax rate on incomes over $1 million.
Raise $150 billion a year by imposing a financial transaction tax on Wall Street speculation.
Cut the military budget by half. Bring troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq.
Create jobs in a major public works program to repair our nation’s infrastructure and to make our nation number one in “green industry.” Target the jobs to hard-hit inner city communities and the rural poor.
Fully fund a national health care program and drastically increase federal aid to education, Pell Grants, and other vital human needs programs.
Remove the cap on the Social Security payroll tax, so that CEOs and hedge fund managers pay the same rate as the rest of us.
