This is likely the case. Of course, the problem is that many in charge of the Democratic Party are themselves incredibly corrupt and can in no way lead a charge against corruption or financial wrong doings. How much criminality has been uncovered among financial institutions that has gone unpunished? Mass criminality too. Rigging bond auctions, the LIBOR, laundering money for drug cartels and terrorists groups, tax evasion, among other things, and nothing ever gets done about it. Remember the damn Holder doctrine, which is still in effect. I think for Hoyer, Pelosi and Schumer that this would be partisan in nature, they would have no interest in doing anything like this among their own members (i.e., themselves).
I agree that Warren and Bernie are offering up some good policies, but people like them are the exception, not the rule. Most of those running now are empty, duds, blah nothing candidates. Some of them play the piano and speak other languages, some ride skateboards and used to play in punk bands (so edgy), which I take it will result in communities like Flint not having lead in their water? Pelosi gave a speech honoring Pete Peterson on the House floor, her top healthcare adviser is giving speeches to drug company and insurance company executives assuring them that the Democrats won’t push for single payer, and those are the people we trust to lead the charge against Trump? Waters is better than she is, and she would probably have more of an interest in pushing for policies too. But many in charge of her party? They will offer this, point to how bad Trump is, and they’ll yell boo. The Russia stuff blew up, so this stuff will take its place. While I too want to know about this, I have no interest in this taking up more time as policy focused discussions.
