“The Democratic Party circled the wagons to maintain Wall Street Control,” tweeted RoseAnn DeMoro, former executive director of National Nurses United, the first union to back Bernie both in the 2016 campaign and now. “We changed the narrative, won the ideological struggle, Bernie is right about that. But our representatives will still belong to the wealthy. Wall Street Won again. Thank you, Bernie. We will carry on.”
I find this wrong in many ways. But here I only want to mention one thing. In DeMoro’s analysis, primary voters, first in South Carolina and then in the states that followed (most of whom are workers), are missing in her account of Joe Biden’s path to the nomination.
Strange omission for a labor leader, and one who sits on the left. Much more could be said.
