The Anti-Capitalist shared U.S. Democratic Socialists’s photo.
Republicans just voted to repeal the ACA, paving the way to deny health care coverage to 24 million Americans. Democrats? They’re outraged. But instead of calling for a truly progressive replacement like single payer, most just want to go back to the ACA. That’s not good enough.
We have got to fight for a health care system that truly works for all of us, not just a few. That’s why DSA members across the country are standing up and saying loudly and clearly: It’s time to demand Medicare-for-All! Contribute to DSA today and help us mobilize for the fight ahead.
The Democratic Party used to get a lot done before they cast the New Deal coalition of labor and working class people aside.
Nixon did pass a lot of good legislation, I wouldn’t count those as GOP accomplishments though
The Democratic establishment seems intent with losing an entire generation of voters to cover for Hillary’s loss. Instead of owning up to a bad campaign and candidate, they continue to double down on bad policy and shaming actual progressives.
Damn Skippy I’m a Democratic Socialist.
The 15 miillion people who voted for him in the primary aren’t either.
“Right-to-Work” legislation has been introduced in the New Hampshire General Court over 30 times in the last 50 years, usually falling victim to partisan checks-and-balances. These abusive laws are not a problem unique to New Hampshire: to date they have bled their way into 28 states. Time and time again, New Hampshire’s labor community has waged quiet war against this reactionary menace and won.”
There are now 100 Democratic Representatives in the House of Representatives who have co-sponsord HR 676, JusticeDemocrats.org have had a petition that has been putting pressure on Congress to get HR 676 passed, Bernie Sanders had 13,000,000 Primary Voters in 2016, if these 13,000,000 Individuals signed the Petition and then went about engaging in Activism with laser focus on HR 676 Medicare For All it would become much closer to becoming a Reality, Like Bernie Sanders says “Its time the United States end the national embarrasment of being the only developed country in the world without Universal Healthcare”.

“Instead of fighting for working class interests, the Democratic party, under the direction of the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), effectively abandoned them by adopting economically conservative policies. To differentiate themselves from Republicans at the national level, Democrats also focused on socio-cultural wedge issues:
The Democratic Leadership Council, the organization that produced such figures as Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Joe Lieberman and Terry McAuliffe, has long been pushing the party to forget blue-collar voters and concentrate instead on recruiting affluent, white-collar professionals who are liberal on social issues. The larger interests that the DLC wants desperately to court are corporations, capable of generating campaign contributions far outweighing anything raised by organized labor. The way to collect the votes and — more important — the money of these coveted constituencies, “New Democrats” think, is to stand rock-solid on, say, the pro-choice position while making endless concessions on economic issues, on welfare, NAFTA, Social Security, labor law, privatization, deregulation and the rest of it.”

Up to 1,000 Democratic candidates are about to make the 2018 congressional primaries completely insane
Outstanding! 2018 can’t come soon enough. Let’s rebuild this sick system.
The 2018 midterms are still 561 days away, but an unprecedented early surge of Democrats have already declared their candidacies for the House of Representatives, setting up what will likely be one…
