I am just finishing Matt Taibbi’s (2014) The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap in which he explains the great pains the poor must go through to get assistance in this nation. The bureaucracy, the indignity, the tyranny of random error, all built in by administrations of both flavors. To think that this pandemic malresponse is be perpetrated to further divide the haves from the have nots just boils my blood. Biden must be pushed and pushed and pushed by the progressives who should make it clear that the youth are awake and corporate blue dogs will be hounded in the primaries right out of their comfy incumbencies. AOC is the natural new face of the party.
