Will centrist Democrats go bipartisan with Cantor-beater on fighting "crony capitalism"?

Last edited Wed Jun 11, 2014, 03:23 PM - Edit history (1)

Centrist Dems are always looking for a way to win over Republican voters and take bipartisan action with Republicans in Congress (no matter now weak and irrelevant GOP is at the moment).

This guy who beat Cantor have them a great way to do both: go after crony capitalism. You know, letting lobbyist write the laws for their industry, giving no strings attached bailouts, leaving office to go work for the corporations they served while in office, looking "forward not backward" when it comes to corporate crime.

If Centrist Dems not only SAY they are going to fight against these things but actually START FIGHTING them before the election, maybe by taking education policy away from wall st, think of the bipartisan mojo they'll have election day.

It might even inspire progressives to trust them.

Since Centrist Dems love bipartisanship so much, I know they will do this, and I'm giddy with anticipation.
