The Democrats 100 Hours pledge  is the first big test of our newly elected lawmakers. Can Congress enact common sense legislation that addresses the concerns of working Americans? Or are corporate lobbies so entrenched that they can fend off any effort to change?
The Campaign for America's Future helped launch the CAN Coalition  to educate Americans about the substance and the importance of the 100 Hours agenda.
Here are the components of the Democrats 100 Hours pledge, and our assessment of them:
The objectives of the 100 Hours pledge are not the final goal. They don't represent everything that progressives want on every issue. But they are solid improvements with popular support. This agenda is an important first step to show what progressives stand for, not against, and to show that a progressive agenda can win in Washington.

Fired. Voters took a good look at Bush's one party rule in Washington and fired Republicans in the 2006 midterm elections. But they did much more than that. Before the pundits muddy the results with talk of the new more "conservative" Democratic legislators and the need for moderation, it is worth looking at what voters said.
