Gaius Publius: An “Open Rebellion Caucus” Forms in the Senate

Naked Capitalism has the article Gaius Publius: An “Open Rebellion Caucus” Forms in the Senate.  Yves wrote the following introduction:

Yves here. Gaius Publius describes how an increasingly uppity faction within the Democratic party is revolting against the way that the party has become largely indistinguishable from the Republicans on economic matters. Oh, they make more middle class friendly noises, but as Lambert puts it, “The Republicans let you know they plan to knife you in the face. The Democrats tell you they only want one kidney. What they don’t tell you is next year they are coming for the other kidney.”

The article puts together pieces from source I have quoted on this blog.

Horrors for agreeing with the Tea Party’s fondness for the following quote from Thomas Jefferson:

I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.

The article ends with a video dissecting the nomination of Loretta Lynch to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General.

America’s Lawyer Mike Papantonio, Ring of Fire Radio, joins Thom Hartmann. Democrats are singing Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch’s praises. But is she really the progressive hero they say she is?

Yes, I know what RT stands for. I also get the irony of having to go to this source to hear some truth about what is going on in the USA. What other kind of source has no motive for sugarcoating these issues?
