What's Wrong With The Democratic Party?

Here's one view:

Unfortunately, many of the Democratic Party’s leaders fail to defend
the four
pillars on which any just economic policy agenda must be built:
♦ Progressive
taxation and prudent military spending cuts to provide
necessary public
♦ Universal social insurance programs and high-quality public
♦ Powerful, democratic labor and social movements capable of
equity in the labor market; and
♦ Global institutions that
advance labor and human rights and provide
for a sustainable environment.

This doesn't resemble what we hear from the leading Democratic presidential candidates, now does it?
