Winning Back the Middle-Class Majority One Family at a Time

New York’s popular senior senator, who won reelection by the
largest margin in the state’s history, offers a bold plan
for change in the Democratic party
As the results of the last presidential election played out,
it became clear that while Democrats call themselves the
party of the middle, the middle class does not consider the
Democrats their party. Now, Chuck Schumer, who has gained
national prominence as the head of the Democratic Senatorial
Campaign Committee and as a member of the Finance Committee,
offers his plan for capturing the middle-class vote and
moving his party back into the majority. Democrats can
accomplish this, the senator explains, without abandoning
their traditional principles.
Schumer envisions a hypothetical, average middle-class
American family—he thinks of them as "The Baileys"—who spend
"as much time talking about the cost of cornflakes as the
cost of the national debt." He then details specific
proposals he believes would keep America safe, secure, and
on top; and support the aspirations of a prosperous and
growing middle class while speaking to anxieties created in
a world changed by technology and globalization.
