Governor 1 Percent

Andrew Prokop at Vox.com says progressives are worried that Governor Andrew Cuomo, aka, Gov. 1 percent, will be the future of the Democratic Party, not Mayor deBlasio. They are right to be worried. The great fear of those of us on the Catholic Left should be someone who embraces libertarian economic ideas as well as social policy libertarianism. The future of the Democrats requires them to become again the party of working class voters, or they will have no future at all.
