Which democratic president was a “real” liberal — not a neoliberal — in your view?

I would characterize neoliberal as (among other things) in favor of privatization (as in ACA instead of single-payer) and deregulation and increased free trade (telling Wall Street to “cut that out”; supporting fracking; or supporting TPP). In general, increased emphasis on laissez-faire private sector economics giving corporations more and more control. The more control on the side of corporations, the less power the people have.

Yes, I would characterize Obama as neoliberal.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
