Who are the members of the CPC (Congressional Progressive Caucus)?

And does anyone have their website address?

For those who know little or nothing about them, they're the ones who are pushing Obama to push "their" progressive health care bill through as well as many other things on their agenda.

Is there a list available of their membership? Names, states, districts?

    Obviously, the first answer above gives you the list of what you asked for. I happen to also know just how liberal most of them are. I have, myself, compiled a list of those Progressive Caucus members and what approval scores they get from the Americans for Democratic Action and the American Conservative Union. Those scores help us to see how liberal any member of Congress is. My list does not include the newest members of the Caucus, as they do not yet have any approval scores.
