The Pearland, Texas office of the Communities United to Strengthen America organization conducted a news conference recently, post elections. CUSA is a middle-class advocacy group. The universally recognized "squeeze on the middle class" is addressed in their specification of 7 points of interest:
providing access to affordable health care
controlling soaring college costs
cutting taxes for working families
repealing handouts to big oil
relieving middle-class debt
protecting workers' pensions
preserving social security.
CUSA, with a nearly one year-old history, has offices in a dozen locations in the nation, presently most active on the federal level. Their goals are certainly worth genuine interest by voters. CUSA's strength could be deepened should it chose to deepen its influence at the state level.
Pearland was chosen for the Texas presence because of its cohesive middle class characteristics.
