The Democratic Health Care Strategy Was Prepared by a Convict in Prison

The democratic health care strategy was prepared by a convict in prison?

Creamer resigned from Citizen Action/Illinois after the FBI began investigating him for bank fraud and tax evasion at Illinois Public Action. He was convicted in 2006 and sentenced to five months in federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, plus eleven months of house arrest.

While in prison - or "forced sabbatical," he called it - Creamer wrote a lengthy political manual, Listen to Your Mother: Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win (Seven Locks Press, 2007).

The book was endorsed by leading Democrats and their allies, including SEIU boss Andy Stern - the most frequent visitor thus far to the Obama White House - and chief Obama strategist David Axelrod, who noted that Creamers tome "provides a blueprint for future victories."

Creamer adds: "To win we must not just generate understanding, but emotionfear, revulsion, anger, disgust."
