100 Days for The Middle Class

Author: Anne Kim and Jim Kessler
In The Middle Class Program


Congress convenes in January, facing a formidable to-do list. This short memo provides advice to Congress on how it should spend its first 100 days to maximize the likelihood of passing an ambitious legislative agenda successfully.


This memo argues that the principal policy and message focus of the first 100 days of Congress should be the middle class. By focusing its first efforts on repairing and restoring the fortunes of the middle class, the new Congress can both set the stage for a lasting progressive era and bank the capital it will surely need to push through transformational progressive priorities.

This memo argues that a 100 days agenda for the middle class can define the “change” promised by Democrats this year in terms of a concrete set of policies that will help the middle class succeed. The memo also includes an illustrative set of policy goals and ideas aimed at the middle class.
