Comments on any of the above question s:

In Congress, I will work tirelessly to create jobs and protect Medicare and Social Security from radical attacks. I will always stand up for the 99% against powerful special interests. When I sit down at the negotiating table to break through the partisan gridlock in Washington, these guiding principles will be my starting point. While I strongly believe that America needs leaders who will compromise for the good of the country, strengthening the middle class will be my top priority.

Are there additional measures you suppo rt which you believe are particularly important for the 99%?
