Twitter Web App : When people complain about left-wing "purity" tests, I try to remind them of cases like these where mainstream Democrats block the most basic forms of humane regulation. Rx price regs and the Obama administration's management of the foreclosure crisis are other obvious cases. twitter.com/matthewstoller…

iPhone : Looks like shining a light on this has generated some constructive pressure from some Sanders allies. twitter.com/evanlweber/sta…

iPhone : The key here is more about how progressives forced Pelosi to the table. She wanted to ignore them entirely. There is one good win and one OK win. The uninsured still get no help as far as I can tell. politico.com/news/2019/12/1…
