Obama the Progressive

For those progressives despairing of Obama’s centrist politics, Bob Cesca points to Obama’s labor secretary Hilda Solis who is taking her job very, very seriously.

I’m not sure whether enforcing labor laws should be considered ‘liberal’, but it’s a damn sight better than the previous secretary Elaine Chao, who under Bush willfully ignored issues that mattered to working Americans and spent eight years ensuring corporate America found every loophole to screw their employees.

Ben Cohen is the editor and founder of The Daily Banter. He lives in Washington DC where he does podcasts, teaches Martial Arts, and tries to be a good father. He would be extremely disturbed if you took him too seriously.
