    But he won't. Because he has an election to win. And Democrats lost the battle over taxes a long time ago.

    •  No, the Democrats have won the battle on taxes (0+ / 0-)

      But the conservative ruling junta of the once great Democratic Party didn't want this win, and won't do the people's will.

      A majority of Americans want to shore up Social Security by raising the cap on earnings. And they certainly want the Bush/Obama tax cuts for the wealthy repealed. But the illegitimate rulers of the party fumble about trying ignore not only the base but the majority of the country.

      If these DLC/3rd Way dems really believe that they can be Progressive and centrist, why don't they ever do anything Progressive on trade, finances, and taxes?

      Throwing the game isn't the same as losing.
