Or Reich just earning his paycheck. This guy has been part of the elite and part of the rot that sits in Washington manipulating and brainwashing the so called voter. Dividing the working stiff into the old right-left paradigm these guys make a pretty nice pile of cash. But there is no discernable difference between them as they live together, party together, marry each other, send their children to the same elite private schools and hire each other.
You'll notice that few names are given or any advocacy of these "regressives" are stated only boogy men and would of and could have and might have.
But, I'm an equal opportunity critic and will point out to you that the professional right spews similar nonsense about the left. (the libs will spend my grandchildren into the poor house!)
You must wonder, as I do, what would these people do for a living if we just quit listening to their bullshit! ( But that would spoil the fun!)
It’s not merely Republicans versus Democrats, or conservatives versus liberals. The larger battle is between regressives and progressives. Regressives want to take this nation backward — to before Social Security, unemployment insurance, and Medicare; before civil rights and voting rights; before regulations designed to protect the environment, workers, consumers, and investors. They want to sabotage much of what this nation has achieved over the last century. And they’re out to do it by making the rich far richer, turning Americans against one another in competition for a smaller and smaller slice of the pie, substituting private morality for public morality, and opening the floodgates to big money in politics. Progressives are determined to take this nation forward — toward equal opportunity, tolerance and openness, adequate protection against corporate and Wall Street abuses, and an economy and democracy that are working for all of us.
