The First 100 Hours... is this radical?

Here’s what the first 100 hours of Democratic control of Congress would look like courtesy of Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi who would become house speaker…

Day One: Put new rules in place to “break the link between lobbyists and legislation.”

Day Two: Enact all the recommendations made by the commission that investigated the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Time remaining until 100 hours: Raise the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour, maybe in one step. Cut the interest rate on student loans in half. Allow the government to negotiate directly with the pharmaceutical companies for lower drug prices for Medicare patients.

Broaden the types of stem cell research allowed with federal funds – “I hope with a veto-proof majority,” she added in an Associated Press interview Thursday.

All the days after that: “Pay as you go,” meaning no increasing the deficit, whether the issue is middle class tax relief, health care or some other priority.

Nancy Pelosi has been slimed as too liberal for our nation because she serves from San Francisco. But what’s so liberal and radical about all this? To me it just makes common sense to shape up our national security and financial security.

Hey, if this is what “liberal San Francisco politics” looks like, I’ll take it. Indeed, I’m drooling over the concept that we’ll finally start taking care of our country.
