Blog: Post-election analysis by NETWORK Staff

Nov 08, 2012 | By Jean Sammon

The day after the election, NETWORK staff held a conference call for our members to discuss what we see going forward. 

You can hear a recording of that call here:  http://youtu.be/ZR3KBJrfmEI

These are some of the things we talked about:

  • What changed in Congress, and what didn't
  • How to use the state platforms that were created as part of the Election2012: Catholics vote for the Common Good project
  • Power shifting in the electorate -- from white men to women, people of color, and low-income people
  • What will happen in the Lame Duck session of Congress
  • Three projects that NETWORK is now focused on: Faithful Budget, Mend the Gap, and Medicaid expansion
  • The "Catholic vote" and Catholic values
