We have been shouting from the rafters, tweeting, writing and calling our senators and other elected representatives, demanding they ditch the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, because it is a gift-wrapped sop to the Unions.

Artificially cap prescription prices, money for child care, money for climate change, immigration, and green cards, and the old saw of tax increases on the wealthy and large corporations, which is the personal pet causes of both Sanders and his cohort Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Fauxahontas).
