We Need To Push The Progressive Narrative

Robert Reich continues to hammer home his message that we need to return to real progressive taxation and shift the political argument back toward the center-left in this country:

For years progressives have whined that Democratic presidents (Clinton, followed by Obama) compromise with Republicans while Republican presidents (Reagan through W) stand their ground -- with the result that the center of political debate has moved steadily rightward. That's the reason the world exists the way it does today. Isn't it about time progressives had the courage of our conviction and got behind what we believe in, in the hope of moving the debate back to where it was?
