The Congressional Progressive Caucus

Who are progressives? Well, they’re not your average Democrats. And if Democrats think they are, they need to look at what has been happening the past year since Barack Obama was sworn into office. I may delve into progressivism in a later post , but you can always google it and find lots of info on the web. For today, my purpose is to provide readers with a list of all of the congresspeople in the House (and one member from the Senate) who are avowed members of the progressive caucus which was formed in 1991. From this site you can find out pretty much everything you need to know. Below is a list of the caucus members and their districts.

There’s Keith Ellison, who traveled to Mecca for the Muslim hajj a year or so ago…I seem to remember some hoopla about whether he spent taxpayer $$ to do so. He is also connected with the Muslim American Society of Minnesota.  Alan Grayson is a  name that has been lately much in the news.  In all the clips I’ve seen of him, he seems to be a bit rude and rather outspoken.  Sheila Jackson Lee…oh yes, she is the lady who answered her phone at a townhall meeting while a constituent was trying to ask her some questions.  That was definitely rude.  Maxine Waters is on the list…she’s the lady who loves Fidel Castro and thinks he has some great ideas on how to run a country.
