Closing the Gap


In his State of the Union address, President Obama said he wants to devote much of his second term to closing the gap between the rich and the poor.

That is what 21st Century Democrats has promoted for years by working to elect progressive candidates who believe that the gap between our top 1 percent and the rest of our country has been out of whack way too long.

Middle-America has suffered enough. Yet the Republican Party and Tea Party extremists remain concerned only about the top 1 percent of the country.

To stop them, 21st Century Democrats commits to recruiting candidates who want to Close the Gap.

We made real progress last Election Day. Now it’s time to follow the president’s lead and keep moving forward.
