    Allyson Schwartz leaves Third Way - Thu Jan 23, 2014 at 10:35 AM PST.

    Schwartz's connection to Third Way drew attention in early December, when the Wall Street front group published a Wall Street Journal op-ed attacking Sen. Elizabeth Warren, liberal populism, and Social Security. At the time,a spokesman said Schwartz "thought Third Way's Op/Ed on Social Security was outrageous and strongly disagrees with it" and reiterated her support for Social Security and Medicare; Schwartz quickly signed on as a cosponsor of a bill to expand Social Security. Now, as Schwartz leaves Third Way, Daily Kos' source says that "The Third Way op-ed made this a much easier decision to make."

    P.S. Yes the republican lite Mark McKinnon types (no labels) or third way are warning signs for me too. Looks like Schwartz's made the correct choice when she left third way and co-sponsored expanding Medicare. I hope her decision was heartfelt and not just political
