DEMOCRATS TO ANNOUNCE NEW DIRECTION FOR AMERICA

Washington, D.C.—Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Assistant Senate Democratic Leader Richard Durbin and House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer will hold a news conference TODAY, June 16, at 10:15 a.m., on Democrats' commitment to a New Direction for America.

Working families face sky-high gas prices, a health care system in crisis and rising costs that increasingly put a college education and a secure retirement out of reach. Unfortunately, in Washington, President Bush and the Rubber Stamp Republicans are taking the country in the wrong direction, focusing on an agenda of "distort, distract, and divide." Democrats are prepared to take the country in a new direction with proposals that address the real priorities of the American people like raising the minimum wage, establishing energy independence and making health care more affordable.

This week, the House Appropriations Committee voted to increase the minimum wage and the issue will come before the full House soon.
