Patriot Act Progressive Caucus Release
Progressive Caucus Members Show Effective Organizing with Some in Tea Party to Protect Liberty of US Citizens BURLINGTON, VT DFA Executive Director, Arshad Hasan: Progressives know that Americans do not want to be spied on by the government. Thats why the Congressional Progressive Caucus fought to end these attacks on our liberty. The issue of liberty is one place where some conservatives and progressives agree in Congress. Hasan added, I am proud to see that under the leadership of Raul Grijalva and Keith Ellison Progressive Caucus Members are building coalitions across party lines to get the peoples business done. I hope that the Republican leadership learns an important lesson here and starts working on issues that voters really care about like creating more jobs. We look forward to working with them on these and other issues we mutually agree on. Hasan sent an email to Democracy for America members today asking them to thank the Congressional Progressive Caucus for their work to end the unconstitutional provisions of the Patriot Act.
