Progress4VA1 Independent PAC 2018-09-19T06:49:20+00:00

Progress4VA1 Independent PAC

Progress4VA1 is an independent expenditure only political action committee (PAC) registered with the Federal Election Commission and Virginia Department of Elections, and affiliated with the Stafford Indivisible Community Action Network (SICAN), a local, grassroots organization energized by volunteer activists from the Stafford, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and King George area.

Progress4VA1 shares the vision and values of SICAN and is dedicated to helping improve the lives of Virginia residents by advocating for progressive policies that will make the Rappahannock region a better place to live, work and raise a family.

To achieve our vision we need to elect candidates who advocate for progressive policies that promote a safe and secure environment, economic opportunity, excellent schools, sustainably managed economic growth and development, appropriate infrastructure development, and a culture of mutual respect, responsibility and support. Therefore, Progress4VA1 will support the nomination and election of candidates to federal, Virginia state, and local offices who support these objectives.

Where do the American People actually stand on the issues? They are more Progressive than you think. Here are the percentages, according to well established polls…

76% of Americans favors higher taxes on the super rich, including more than half of registered Republicans. - Morning Consult-Political Poll, Feb 2019

More than 60% favor a wealth tax on fortunes of $50 million or more. - Morning Consult-Political Poll, Feb 2019 (Even Fox New Polls confirm these trends.)

70% want "Medicare for All," which most define as Medicare for anyone who wants it. - Hill-HarrisX Poll, Oct 2018

60% of Republicans support allowing anyone under age 65 to buy into Medicare. - Politico/Harvard Poll, Dec 2018

92% want lower prescription drug prices. - Politico/Harvard Poll, Dec 2018

More than 70% think we should be able to buy drugs imported from Canada. - KFF Health Tracking Poll, Feb 2019

More than 80% of Americans want paid maternity leave. - Pew Research Center Survey, Nov-Dec 2016

79% of voters want more affordable child care and that includes 80% of Republicans. - First Five Years Fund National Poll - 2017

60% of Americans support free college tuition for the those who meet income requirements. - Reuters/Opos. Poll, June-July 2018

77% support limits on campaign spending, and that includes 71% of Republicans. - Yale and George Mason, Nov-Dec 2018

So why do the powerful (Big Corporations, Wall Street, and the Super Wealthy) call these policy ideas “Fringe” or “Radical” or “Socialist” ???

The reason is... MONEY! Many of these initiatives would cost THEM plenty. And as these proposals become more popular, the powerful are going to intensify their false and lying attacks. Don't drink the kool-aid!

https://t.co/fuguZuCZMQ #VA01 @RobWittman vote of the day (Mar'13): Voted for a bill that mandates work requirements for TANF recipients. So we can put burdensome requirements on the poor but not reasonable regulations on businesses?

#VA01's @RobWittman says "we must first address our [military] readiness crisis"

@POTUS cancels military readiness exercises with S. Korea to appease Kim Jung-Un

Rob does nothing to advocate for continuing these exercises.

Why so #SilentBob?
