Middle Class

“A thriving middle class fuels the engine of growth in a market economy and is the surest guarantee of opportunity, stability, and freedom.”

Political pundits often Pigeon-hole spending, healthcare, tax, and international proposals as liberal or conservative, Democratic or Republican — but this ideological labeling seldom adds much to our national dialogue or leads us to practical solutions.

In an effort to look beyond ideology and labeling, this new web-page provides resources to evaluate policies through the lens of middle-class-impact, based on the principle that a thriving middle class is the best metric for measuring the health and well-being of our economy, our democracy, and the American People.
