Reich on the populist agenda

See Robert Reich's article for the details. He notes that populism is infecting both parties around the following issues. Therefore a smart progressive will stick to them like glue in preparation for the upcoming election. Those that do will win, which is why some Republicans are even supporting them. I have serious doubts that the regressives actually support these issues, that it's more likely a ploy to win votes. Meanwhile the progressives have been saying this stuff since forever and actually stand for it. See the article for the details of the following bullet points.

1. Cut the biggest Wall Street banks down to a size where they're no longer too big to fail.
2. Resurrect the Glass-Steagall Act.
3. End corporate welfare. 
5. Scale back American interventions overseas
6. Oppose trade agreements crafted by big corporations.
