The poll for the second semifinal for #ProgressiveMarchMadness is now underway!
Tax the Rich or Overturn Citizens United will go on to meet yesterday’s winner Medicare For All in the championship!
Tax the Rich had a decisive win against Immigrants’ Rights (82.5%-17.5%) in their first matchup. Criminal Justice Reform fared better, but Tax the Rich still won by a comfortable margin (69.4%-21.6%) to earn a spot in the seminfinal.
Overturn Citizens United’s path to the Final Four has been similar, easily besting Free Childcare in their first matchup by grabbing 75.4% of the votes. The final score of their second poll was closer, but Housing For All (36.7%) also could not overcome Overturn Citizens United (63.3%).
At the core of both Tax the Rich and Overturn Citizens United is the idea that the wealthy class should not subvert our democratic way of life — one by making sure the rich can’t get out of paying their fair share to society, and the other by keeping moneyed interests from corrupting our electoral process.
