Perhaps MS. Bennis is under the impression progressive dems captured the WH, the Senate, and the House. They didn’t, none of the things that benefit the masses will be done, just more of the same, with the same neoliberals that brought us Trump.
They must remember the rest of the world or what? People will stop electing Democrats and Republicans to office?
There about 2 or 3 of these articles every day claiming what the new Congress, Senate and President MUST do yet none of them suggest how they are going to get them to do it.
So to the funding of the war machine which is some 1 trillion a year in US spending. How does Ms Bennis suggest they force Congress and the Congress and the senate to stop?
There must be other options for DeJoy such as a citizen’s lawsuit for all the damage he has done.
Rejoining WHO and joining with the UN COVAX sound good, as does reducing military funding and ending economic sanctions – whether in the next six weeks or anytime in the near future. We need to do our best to hold their feet to the fire on these.
