2020 Democratic contenders are consistently looking for a new way to rally the far-left wing of their party. However, uniting behind a tax plan that would appeal to the progressive base still eludes them.
The Hill: “Democrats will make President Trump’s 2017 tax law a major campaign issue next year, but there is little consensus within the party about what their alternative should look like or if they should even offer one.”
Presidential candidates desperate to distinguish themselves in this huge field and are now looking to a new litmus test known as court packing in hopes of appealing to the liberal base. Court packing was once considered an extreme stance, but as the Democratic party continues to shift further left radical policies such as the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and guaranteed jobs are now par for the course in the primary contest.
