This is fine up to the conclusion, where Atcheson concludes that Democrats will not take advantage of the ravages of Trumpism, notably on the visible issue of healthcare, to win back seats because it "remains dominated by neoliberal apparatchiks," as though a certain clique of out-of-touch professional politicians is the problem. No, that's not what's wrong here. The problem is that we have a system, locked into place by SCOTUS (long before Gorsuch got near it) in which winning election and reelection is almost entirely a matter of having enough money tor lots of ads, and to pay professionals to run focus groups and polls to determine what strategy will win the seat. It actually increases the odds of a Congressperson holding onto a seat if he or she sells his or her constituents down the river--because when you sell people, you get paid for them and then you use that money come the next election. Even with the issues people care about most, how many investigate how "their" representative voted? And how many of those remember maybe three years later when the next election comes up? In other words, it isn't some clique of people who happen to hold the reins of the DNC right now; it's a SYSTEM that guarantees that people like that will hold control.
