    The Democratic Party leadership has an important decision to make; " Will it be a Progressive Party or a Corporatist Party?"

    The Midterm Election proved that the people want a Progressive Party.

    Hopefully those old professional millionaire politicians running the Democratic Party will support Progressive Bills like Renewable energy, stop funding trillions for war crimes and endless wars, Health Care for all, a sensible, fair immigration plan, create millions of jobs by rebuilding America's infrastructure and abolish Drug Plan D that steals billions of dollars each year from the people and also abolish that rotten tax bill for the rich, outlaw all automatic gun sales in America. Pass these bills in the House and every Republican who votes against these bills can be defeated in the next election when the people are made aware of their voting records.

    100% agree the old school needs to change. The only thing I disagree with is what you say the path forward should be. Having a myriad of issues is what gave rise to the demise of the people's party. The Democratic party has to focus on getting the lower classes to a living wage. That can consolidate support and tell the establishment hardliners that compromising people's health and safety is over. People that have everything have no right compromising away poor people's rights. A living wage through financial regulations and single payer health care by first adding to the deficit and then paying off from the tax revenue from a prosperous work force. There are millions of people that still can't afford health care and medicine. That is not compromise, that is an autrocity . That is haves compromising have nots.

    When I first started doing labor union work a real fighter for workers, Jim Russel explained the union convept to me. He said at the end of a strike if all that we get is a can of beans, then we open the can and count the beans and divide them up equally for the membership. Everybody gets the same. That's how the Democratic Party should be. Not making millions while compromising the poor.

    Sanders on Thursday introduced a bill, titled the Stop Walmart Act, that would prevent large companies from buying back stock unless they pay all employees at least $15 an hour, allow workers to earn up to seven days of paid sick leave and limit CEO compensation to no more than 150 times the median pay of all staffers.

    Yes Connie, that could be just a start; however don't forget we live in a big world, where other things matter. So I would like to add is to improve our worldwide relation ship as well free trade and no longer be the "bully" in the world. Help the famine and deceases worldwide. Introduce an real separation of Church and State in the laws etc.
