Sanders urges party to go beyond comfort zone

21 April 2017, 07:35 | Gladys Abbott

DNC Chair Tom Perez is traveling with Bernie Sanders, while his party's national apparatus is suspect.

Tina Epperson, a 38-year-old from eastern Kentucky, came to Louisville Tuesday to see Sanders and said she hopes the Democratic Party will pay more attention to her part of the state from now on.

New Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez received a rude welcome at the DNC's "Come Together Fight Back" tour stop in Portland, Maine. Sanders spoke in ME and Kentucky earlier this week and will later go to Texas, Nebraska, Utah, Arizona and Nevada. During the presidential primary, Sanders and his team were often pitted against the party apparatus.

The insurgent 2016 Democratic primary candidate and self-described socialist blasted President Donald Trump, asserting that Americans across the political spectrum are perceiving Trump in a negative light and as someone who is not fulfilling his campaign promises. On health care, Sanders called for a "Medicare-for-all" approach, and Perez stopped short of endorsing that policy while saying he believed health care should be a right.

"Our job is to radically transform the Democratic Party into a fifty-state party and a party which does not continue to ignore half of the states in our country, including some of the poorest states in America", he continued. The partnership is not without some irony.

Bernie Sanders is a guy who has a lot of advice for the Democratic Party, despite the fact that he doesn't consider himself a member. Rand Paul - have been two of the nation's leading advocates against the ACA.

But Ellison is also a fervent progressive and a radical leftist.

North Korea parades what appears to be new ICBM
North Korea has warned the United States that it is "ready to hit back with nuclear attacks", as it displayed its war arsenal. Ostensibly Saturday's event was to mark the 105th anniversary of the North's founder Kim Il-Sung's birth.

The contrast was apparent throughout the university's Baxter Arena, where supporters waved signs featuring the familiar image of Sanders' white hair and glasses alongside Mello's jet black hair and sunglasses. Kentucky is a state where Democrats used to own the governorship.

Yarmuth, who represents a Louisville-area district, said the "single-player" plan would loom as the biggest advantage that Democrats would have in next year's election if the national party embraces it. Trump won 118 of Kentucky's 120 counties. Rather, we must build a strong Democratic Party in each state that can win elections. "When we allow our opponents to put fear on the ballot, we don't do so well", Perez said.

All this inside baseball of the Democratic Party is notable for how little attention it has gotten in the mainstream media, which lately has been far more interested in how Trump is supposedly changing conservatism. "I'll tell you what I'd call it: "I don't care" because those Republican leaders and President Trump don't give a shit about the people they were trying to hurt". They also understand that our economy works best when it works for everyone and not just for a few at the top.

Sanders is right on that count.

"You don't stand with the working people of this country by supporting health care legislation that throws 24 million people off of health insurance", former presidential candidate Sanders said of the languishing health care overhaul backed by Trump.

On the eve of the election, it was not just large segments of the political media and Clinton supporters and allies who expected her to win. They're beginning to fight back. Pointing to the 20-point swing toward Democrats, Perez said that "if we replicate that success everywhere, we will flip the House in 2018". Now they have to find agreement.
