I agree with you....I don't see myself as a "progressive"....


but others here do.

Unless the dems can win it all, I can't see anything much getting done, let alone take money back for the super wealthy in a special tax. The only way is to make it more fair for all Americans and that would take the House, Senate and WH working together and that's why we have to concentrate on being the ones in charge again.

Someone said the other day/night that this freshman class in the House is made up of not only far left progressives, but many new moderates too. It's just that all the attention is on a few like AOC, etc.

This person was saying that Pelosi is well aware of what is going on, the "threats" to primary certain people if they don't go along with them and so she meets with these groups in special once a week meetings to get the new members to understand that we need a united democrat party in order to do what needs to be done.

I think it's too soon to say how this will shake out. I hope things settle down soon and we can focus on 2020, especially winning the presidency and key Senate seats.
