By Michael Lux:
The radically anti-middle class agenda had a very bad day Tuesday, as the people fighting for us 99 percent won some very big battles. Voters in Maine dumped a right-wing push to cut back on voting rights. Voters in Mississippi said no to the profoundly radical attempt to give every zygote personhood rights. Voters in Arizona recalled the author of the anti-immigrant, anti-Constitutional rights bill allowing police to stop any driver who looked like they might be an immigrant. Voters in Michigan recalled a far-right state legislator there. And voters in Ohio decisively stood up for the middle class and said no to radical anti-unionism. Northeast, Midwest, Deep South, Southwest: it was a good day to be an American if you value community, equality, democracy, and the middle class and those working to climb their way into it.
