7. Of course I care but the establishment democrats are NOT listening and working WITH the progressives
of the party. Sure, you can arm-twist the progressives in Congress to VOTE FOR the corporate democratic (New Democrat) policies.

However, despite all of the establishment democrats declarations, the base of the party will vote for those who hold THEIR VALUES = policies and people who will serve the WORKING WAGE EARNER before the investment bankers and large corporate interests.

If WE lose seats in November, please feel free to look in the mirror. It was intolerance of any policy that was progressive that may sink many New Democratic candidates for Congress.
