The key elements are:
- Comprehensive immigration reform (but no mention on how or what that entails)
- $10 million outreach to minority groups, including gay and lesbian
- Take a harder line with corporate America, less corporate "welfare"
- Loosen fundraising laws in D.C. and state capitals
- Shorten 2016 presidential primary calendar
- Reduce the number of presidential primary debates to approximately 10 to 12 (no earlier than Sept. 2015).
I am happy to see the slow understanding that homosexuals matter and should be "accepted" as part of the party (I say "accepted" because I realize there are some within the party that won't and this is not a blanket "we accept that homosexuals are and deserve the same things heterosexuals enjoy"). And that something needs to move regarding the immigration issue and those here illegally. It's taking to long to get to this point but to see some (any) movement is good. I can't find the full listing of all the elements of the "roadmap" but reading the article one piece struck me:
The report also calls for the GOP to take a harder line with corporations.
"We have to blow the whistle at corporate malfeasance and attack corporate welfare," it says. "We should speak out when CEOs receive tens of millions of dollars in retirement packages but middle-class workers have not had a meaningful raise in years."
Haven't heard that type of stuff from the GOP in recently.
There is still a long way to go on this, these are just recommendations that still need to be conveyed to and discussed within the party overall to see if it gains traction and/or what needs to be changed and can be accepted. We'll have to wait and see.
