Neera Tanden detailed the mission and current goals of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for American Progress (CAP) think tank. CAP was founded in 2003 because there was no single progressive organization that focused on economic and domestic policy, and national security. Ms. Tanden described how CAP puts forward views through policy analysis and revealed that CAP will be working on a progressive tax reform policy in 2012. She talked about funding sources for CAP and stated that no one individual or corporation contributes more than ten percent of CAP’s $40 million annual budget. She reminisced on her childhood and her brief early support of President Reagan. She discusses working for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, along with her college experiences at the University of California Los Angeles and Yale University.

Neera Tanden became president of CAP in November, 2011. She was a senior adviser to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. close
