  •  The Progressive Caucus is our largest in the House (0+ / 0-)

    Did you really have that many problems with Pelosi's house in 2006 and 2008? Is it really a long list? We have a good start there and at minimum we need to focus on making it ever larger. Not all our Congressional representation sucks. There are a number of good politicians but they've been out numbered and will continue to be unless we give them cover and assistance.

    And we also must make aggressive public funding of elections that competes with private elections the law of the land. That would really f' up the GOP. I think a lot more Democrats could use it as a lever for not only successful campaigning, but finally for unencumbered governance. If you're not fighting for that, you're as much of the problem as your representatives. Even good ones sometimes have no choice but to smoke lobbyists to hold onto their jobs and they will until we change it.  

    You're worried about corruption? Follow the money.
