How progressives got screwed in leadership vote

Cenk explains that Pelosi had to make concessions with corporate Dems, allowing them to vote with Repugs on corporate donor paybacks. Meanwhile the progressives got nothing for supporting her. This included sabotaging Barbara Lee for caucus chair by injecting Jeffries, claiming he too is progressive when his stated views show he is a lame incrementalist.

Progressives need to stand firm and make demands on leadership with threats of primary challenges. And given continued corporate Dem obstruction we already know they will continue this behavior so plan now for exactly those primary challenges. We need a progressive majority in '20.
