Also on Tuesday, the Congressional Progressive Caucus held an Alternative State of the Union session in the Capitol.
California Democrat Barbara Lee, who co-chairs the 53-member caucus, as she opened the session saying, "We are holding an Alternative State of the Union address because we believe that Americans deserve a vision of a future of peace and justice rather than war and economic hardship and inequality. At last year’s State of the Union, President Bush gave us the axis of evil. Today, we face crises and possible war on multiple fronts. In fact, we face possible endless war because the doctrine of preemption knows no limits. It also brings us no security."
- Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), member of the Progressive Caucus which outlined an alternative State of the Union yesterday.
