In the 1990’s, Bill Clinton thought he could appease everyone – just like Obama thinks today. So he partnered up with the DLC and Third Way Democrats, and when he did that, he completely abandoned the working class, unions, and consumers.

We got the Telecommunications Act that allowed for media consolidation and the death of journalism. And what did Bill get in return? He got impeached by the very people he was so desperate to make happy.
