Chuck Schumer is listening.
Eight years late, and not enough to do anything more than talk some poll-tested nonsense that won’t get any traction with liberals, but he’s listening. How do I know?

They still stand for Wall Street and neoliberalism. Therein lies the problem.

And, I can also add that in my town, demonstrators are moving to those local offices.
