    a moderate who seeks some reforms in capitalism.
    Can you give one or two examples of this? I recognize this president on social issues has done quite a bit, but in reforming capitalism? I would argue that he has not helped much in advancing reforms such as Dodd-Frank. He could instruct his agencies to do more, doesn't need Congress for this, or in some instances just do it. ACA is another example, it is a good step forward and much needed, but does little in the "reforming capitalism" department, not nothing but little.

    I am not a socialist, not even close, and neo-liberalism isn't capitalism either. It is not even about reforming capitalism but about stopping neo-liberalism from destroying capitalism.
