  •  What are the poles of the compromise? (10+ / 0-)

    Democrats should be starting with something on the order of 'let's confiscate off-shored wealth at 85%' for example.

    Or, 'let's increase SS benefits by the amount inflation really costs people on housing, food, transportation and heat.'

    Or, 'let's put $1.5T into direct work repairing infrastructure and getting off of polluting fuels' (which last part becomes a national security issue as well as an economic.)

    In other words, the Dems start from too close a point to the Republicans for ensuing 'compromises' to be to their base's advantage. Let alone the nation's.

    Actual Democrats: the surest, quickest, route to More Democrats. And actually addressing our various emergencies.
