Gov. Howard Dean threatens to leave Democratic party over Obama budget
- by New Deal democrat
Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean has told Business Week that if Obama's budget passes, with its cuts to Social Securtiy and restoration of virtually all the cuts made by the sequester to the Pentagon, he may have to leave the Democratic party and register as an independent.
This is a Big Deal, in my opinion. Should even a small fraction of current and former democratic officeholders leave the party over the Grand Betrayal, it's likely they won't simply sit at home crocheting. We could see the founding of a new major political party for the first time in 150 years.
And if Obama's budget passes, that new party will have my full support.
