Robert Reich on the Democratic Presidential nominee
See his article here. While he doesn't say it outright, he's describing Senator Warren and definitely not Hillary Clinton. He says what we need in a candidate is someone who will take on the moneyed interests, like the big banks, Wall Street and corporations. Someone who will resurrect the Glass-Steagall Act, break up the big banks, impose jail sentences on criminal banking practices, enact a financial transactions tax. Someone who will end corporate welfare, oppose unfair trade agreements, make the rich and corporations pay their fair share of taxes, reverse Citizens United. This is the agenda needed to restore democracy in the US. Nothing less will do. And between Warren and Clinton, we absolutely know which one will fight for this agenda and which one will give it lip service while enabling it further.
