  •  Our job to keep the pressure on (2+ / 0-)

    Public pressure clearly is making a difference. Without public pressure, we would have Larry Summers instead of Janet Yellin at the Fed. And we would have bombed the __ out of Syria, instead of a UN process of diplomacy that is actually more effective in dealing with the chemical weapons.

    And so far, public pressure has meant that Social Security and Medicare, at least, are still "third rails" that the Democrats don't dare touch even when tempted. I wish the rest of the safety net were as sacrosanct, but still have faith that Democrats will not abandon the Roosevelt agenda.
