Working Families Party endorses Michael Arcuri in CD24

Michael Arcuri has been endorsed by the Working Families Party for Congress in CD24. In his acceptance speech, he talked about deciding to run for Congress when he saw Bush cutting student loans, childrens' programs and programs for the elderly to give tax cuts to the rich. He told the story of talking with his son about whether he should run for Congress and his son telling him he should run to end the war in Iraq. And he spoke about the need to bring the troops home from Iraq with the respect they deserve, to focus on quality affordable health care for all Americans instead of tax cuts for the richest Americans, and about the need to raise the minimum wage for all Americans.
