Robert Borosage: "We're Not Likely To See This Opportunity Again"
America's Future co-director Robert Borosage opens the America's Future Now! conference with a challenge to the progressive movement to seize a chance for progressive change that the nation has not seen since at least the 1960s. The dramatic and sweeping failure of conservative policies and the ascendancy of the Obama administration and a Democratic—albeit not always progressive—Congress gives progressives the opportunity to enact bold reforms in areas ranging from health care to energy policy. "We are not likely to see this opportunity again," he says.
In this address, Borosage answers the question of whether progressives should support the Obama administration as it pursues its agenda or challenge it to change direction. "There is one certain answer to that choice," he says. "Yes."
