Representatives Marcia Ranglin-Vassell and Moira Walsh are first term legislators and members of the growing Progressive Democrats faction of the Democratic Party. They share a common philosophy, which includes the idea that government should work for all people, especially those in need. They discuss their support of the progressive legislative agenda which includes a living wage; single-payer health care; earned sick leave; taxing the rich in order to help pay for progressive programs, and more. Both point out that progressive Democrats support greater efficiencies in government spending and doing away with corporate welfare.
