    •  While other Dems are the only thing slowing WS. (4+ / 0-)

      While the progressive caucus cannot hardly get a bill on the floor, there is no other group in America that has the potential to bring a quick halt  to business as usual on Wall St. And sorry to burst your bubble but by quick halt I do mean over a few short years. They've frankly done more than OWS back in 2009-2010 before losing the house. OWS will not do it faster, if at all, by themselves. Even with their Senators not being able to reign in the filibuster, though that may be changing.

      But there are no allies among the GOP, the Teabaggers, and most of the lazy citizenry of this country. Unless you get those citizens motivated as a block, big money wins. Game over.

      Goddamn it, now can I not trust anyone UNDER 30??  ;)

      •  There's only one Senator in the caucus. (1+ / 0-)

        Given that the GOP rules the House, it would make sense that not too many of their bills make it to the floor.

        While you dream of Utopia, we're here on Earth, getting things done.
