Former Obama Labor Secretary Tom Perez was elected over the weekend to chair the Democratic National Committee. He’s vowing to rebuild the Democratic Party while changing the culture of the DNC.

“Where do we go from here? Because right now we have to face the facts. We are suffering from a crisis of confidence, a crisis of relevance,” Perez said. “We need a chair who can not only take the fight to Donald Trump, make sure we talk about our positive message of inclusion and opportunity and talk to that big tent of the Democratic Party. We also need a chair who can lead turn-around and change the culture of the Democratic party and the DNC.”

Keith Ellison, the favorite of the progressive Bernie Sander wing of the Democratic Party urged unity behind Perez, saying Democrats don’t have the luxury of being divided.

AFL-CIO: GOP ‘Reform Lowers Health Care

The AFL-CIO says if the leaked draft of the Republican healthcare plan is the one they go with, it’s a non-starter.

AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka said the leaked GOP healthcare plan lowers the healthcare bar when we should be raising it instead. He says the GOP is lowering America’s healthcare under the guise of reform.

Trumka also noted that the Republican plan would slash health care for tens of millions of Americans and impose a new tax directly on America’s working people, “threatening to destroy the health coverage we earn on the job.”

    The thing that is most enjoyable about the current state of the Democrat Party is that The Fake Indian, Liz Warren, is now the face of the party. Liz Warren !!!! It’s hilarious to watch this play out.

    Libertarians rejoiced over the weekend as Perez’s election means the end of The Democratic Party as we know it. The wealthy elite got their man.

      Some of the things this guy said are the same old leftist talking points. Nothing is going to change and as you stated, the Dem party is cooked.
