Let Democrats take lead

Not that long ago, Republicans, the corporate media and centrist Democrats were locked together in an unholy alliance that was pushing the Wall Street agenda on the entire country. It seemed like we only heard one thing from Washington: that we needed to reduce the deficit, and that hard-working Americans would have to pay the price.

Now, things have changed. The Democrats are talking about the need for real banking reform and the need to expand Social Security. Democrats led the fight to reform the Senate, and thanks to Democrats President Obama can now do his job and appoint the federal judges who have sat waiting for confirmation.

The House of Representatives in Congress has failed to get anything done, but voted 48 times to repeal Obamacare, so it’s time to let the Democrats take the lead.
