Not even one Democratic Senator in the Congressional Progressive Caucus!
Hon. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
Only one Senator is willing to stand with many proud House progressives?!?!?!
And not a single “Democrat”?!?!?!
No wonder Democratic control of the House, the Senate and the presidency has led to so little progressive change. There’s not a single Democrat in the Senate willing to speak out with a proud progressive voice.
(The late, great Sen. Paul Wellstone (D-MN) was a member — and a powerfully persuasive progressive — until his death in a suspicious small plane crash eleven days before his likely re-election despite — perhaps even because — he voted against giving George W. Bush the power to invade Iraq.)
