View Diary: Democrats need to do better with white voters part 2 (49 comments)

  •  SS, Medicare, Employment (0+ / 0-)

    Protect and strengthen SS from the corporatist Republicans and corporatist DLC Democratic "centrists/pragmatists" that want to gut it.

    Protect Medicare from the same Republicans, DLCers.

    Expand Medicare to everyone.

    Employment.  Side with workers, not bankers.  Protect and strengthen workers rights.  Stop letting Wall Street pirates get away with financial pillaging.  Hold financial wrongdoers responsible, so workers know you're on their side.

    These are core and basic economic issues, which will strengthen the appeal of the Democrats to white voters.  It seems like almost a no-brainer, obviously.  But the Democratic Party still doesn't seem to get it.  They're still far too intent on "pragmatizing" themselves out of a majority.

    What's wrong under Republicans is still wrong under Democrats.
