After his landslide reelection in 2004, by the largest margin in New York State history, Senator Chuck Schumer gained national recognition during the mid-term elections as the principal architect of the Democrats’ successful effort to win back the Senate. Set to appear in paperback, with a timely new chapter, as we approach the next presidential election, Positively American presents Senator Schumer’s 10-point plan for capturing the middle class vote and moving his party back into the majority now and in the future. Addressing such vital issues as taxes, education, health, the energy crisis, and national security, Senator Schumer explains how his party can accomplish this without abandoning their traditional principles and concern for the vulnerable in society.
