Kamala Harris has matched every one of her progressive achievements with conservative ones.
Kamala Harris trumpets a criminal justice program she instituted as district attorney as proof she's a "progressive prosecutor." The only problem? The program utterly failed to reduce mass incarceration in California.
Kamala Harris’s student debt forgiveness plan is a joke. But it won’t be the last time she puts out policy proposals that masquerade as social justice initiatives but accomplish little. It’s what Obama and many Democrats before him did — only now, millions of people aren’t buying it.
Kamala Harris doesn't say much about foreign policy on the campaign trail. But a look at her record shows that when it comes to militarism, she’s squarely in line with — and sometimes to the right of — a hawkish, war-happy Democratic establishment.
Kamala Harris’s new health care policy is a classic exercise in political triangulation, an attempt to appease health-insurance lobbyists while preserving her progressive bona fides by claiming “Medicare for All” as a slogan. Don't fall for it.
Kamala Harris has long claimed to be a supporter of Medicare for All. But the rollout of her new health-care plan finally gives us clarity: she will fight on behalf of insurance companies, not against them.
With Kamala Harris out of the race and Elizabeth Warren’s numbers dropping, recent weeks haven’t been kind to candidates who have equivocated on Medicare for All. Bernie Sanders is the only candidate whose support for M4A is solid and unchanging — a stance that’s not only morally correct but politically smart.
Two years after forcing Al Franken’s resignation from the Senate over sexual misconduct allegations, prominent Democrats now have to decide whether to stand on principle or keep silent about the latest assault accusations against Joe Biden. We asked them — and so far, most are choosing to keep silent.
Judith Butler donating to Kamala Harris? Martha Nussbaum supporting John Hickenlooper? You can learn as much about a radical academic’s ideas by searching their campaign contributions as by reading their books.
Don't listen to the media and think tank clowns — it's still Bernie.
Anyone who examines privately owned US prisons has to come to the conclusion that they are abhorrent and must be eliminated. But they can also be low-hanging fruit used by opportunistic Democrats to ignore the much larger problem of — and solutions to — mass incarceration.
You could listen to the pundits, or you could listen to your heart. Bernie Sanders should run for president.
Class shapes our social world — not just through the economy, but through our personal networks. Whether it’s Kamala Harris’s corporate lawyer husband or Elizabeth Warren’s McKinsey alum daughter, it’s legitimate to ask how a politician’s class connections might influence the decisions they make in office.
Minnesota senator Amy Klobuchar has been crowned by mainstream pundits as a Highly Electable Candidate. There’s only one problem — people hate her platform and no one wants to vote for her.
The Democratic Party should be hosting thematic debates with viable presidential candidates on poverty, housing, foreign policy, immigrant rights, the climate crisis, and more. Instead, they are collaborating with the mainstream media to host empty entertainment spectacles.
It was inevitable that Biden’s unsavory record would eventually get the scrutiny it deserves. Last night, it finally started to happen.
What are the 2020 candidates proposing to do about inequality, one of the defining issues of our time and a proxy for the class struggle? We've scoured their campaign websites and tallied up the pros and cons.
Centrist Democrats embraced identity politics in the 2016 election. Surprise, surprise — they’re now working to keep diverse candidates out who threaten their power.
Mainstream Democrats love to talk about making things like health care and education more affordable. They should be talking about making them free.
Facing pressure from the Left, Democratic presidential candidates are foregoing corporate PAC money. But in private, they’re still cozying up to capitalist supervillains.
