What we are fighting for
The fundamental goal of the Democrats United SuperPAC is to help the American people that share the same essential values as the citizens of America as stated in the United States Constitution. We fight for the Economic, social and cultural rights such as the right to education, right to housing, the right to an adequate standard of living, right to health and the right to science and culture. Members of the Democrats United PAC Committee obligation are to respect, protect and fulfill economic, social and cultural rights and are expected to take “progressive action” towards their fulfillment.
As small businesses are the largest creator of employment, we seek to influence the election of candidates who support fair access to capital and prosperity for those businesses. We seek to expose and oppose political candidates and organizations that support policies and tell lies that damage small, minority, and women-owned businesses and the general welfare of our nation.
Universal Declaration on Human Rights
Democrats united SuperPAC upholds the Universal Declaration on Human Rights. The Universal Declaration on Human Rights (UDHR), adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1948, is one of the most important sources of economic, social and cultural rights. It recognizes the right to social security in Article 22, the right to work in Article 23, the right to rest and leisure in Article 24, the right to an adequate standard of living and healthcare in Article 25, the right to education in Article 26, and the right to the benefits of science and culture in Article 27.
We are a national non-connected political action committee incorporated in Georgia as a non-profit and registered as a Super PAC supporting the election of Democratic Party candidates.
Bring down out-of-pocket costs like copays and deductibles. American families are being squeezed by rising out-of-pocket health care costs. We believe that workers should share in slower growth of national health care spending through lower costs. Democrats believe that health care is a right, not a privilege, and our health care system should put people before profits. Thanks to the hard work of President Obama and Democrats in Congress, we took a critically important step toward the goal of universal health care by passing the Affordable Care Act, which has covered 20 million more Americans and ensured millions more will never be denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition. Democrats will never falter in our generations-long fight to guarantee health care as a fundamental right for every American. As part of that guarantee, Americans should be able to access public coverage through a public option, and those over 55 should be able to opt in to Medicare. Democrats will empower the states, which are the true laboratories of democracy, to use innovation waivers under the ACA to develop unique locally tailored approaches to health coverage. This will include removing barriers to states which seek to experiment with plans to ensure universal health care to every person in their state. By contrast, Donald Trump wants to repeal the ACA, leaving tens of millions of Americans without coverage.
Raising Workers’ Wages
Democrats believe that the current minimum wage is a starvation wage and must be increased to a living wage. No one who works full time should have to raise a family in poverty. We believe that Americans should earn at least $15 an hour and have the right to form or join a union and will work in every way we can—in Congress and the federal government, in states and with the private sector—to reach this goal. We should raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour over time and index it, give all Americans the ability to join a union regardless of where they work, and create new ways for workers to have power in the economy so every worker can earn at least $15 an hour. We applaud the approaches taken by states like New York and California. We also support creating one fair wage for all workers by ending the sub-minimum wage for tipped workers and people with disabilities.
Democrats support a model employer executive order or some other vehicle to leverage federal dollars to support employers who provide their workers with a living wage, good benefits, and the opportunity to form a union without reprisal. The one trillion dollars spent annually by the government on contracts, loans, and grants should be used to support good jobs that rebuild the middle class.
