Progressive caucus.png

The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) is an openly Marxist group of Democratic party congressmembers advocating for single party control of the U.S. government and disposal of the United States Constitution. As of 2019, it has 95 members or about 40% of elected Democrat House members.[1] The caucus is a hotbed of Anti-Semitism.

The Caucus was founded in 1991 by a single member, Bernie Sanders, who refused to join the Democratic party while offering to support other member's bills if they would join the caucus, compromising them by outing them as far left socialists.

Background

Prog-caucus.jpg

The caucus was founded in 1991 by Bernie Sanders[2] —the openly socialist then Congressman from Vermont, Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and the radical Washington DC based "think tank" Institute for Policy Studies (IPS). The Congressional Progressive Caucus is an informal alliance of 95 far left and liberal and Congressional members in the U.S. House. They push for overhaul and scrapping major laws.

Many members are linked to the Democratic Socialists and/or the Communist Party USA, IPS or other radical organizations.

From small beginnings the CPC grew to embrace more than 95 members of Congress and three in the Senate - Roland Burris, Bernie Sanders and Tom Udall (NM).

Members

115th Congress Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chairs Reps. Pramila Jayapal and Mark Pocan omitted in their financial disclosure forms that they were board members of a dark money nonprofit group in 2017, violating House Rules and opening themselves up to criminal prosecution. Pocan introduced an Abolish ICE bill.[3] Jayapal introduced the Medicare for All bill in 2019.

The co-chairs in the 116th Congress are Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva of Arizona and Lynn Woolsey of California. Most members represent big-city districts, especially in the Northeast and West Coast. Most were elected in single party controled districts. Since the term "liberal" is out of fashion, they use "progressive." Several members are Princelings, or children of former communist bureaucrats and functionaries. No Republican has ever belonged.

The Progressive Caucus overlaps heavily with the Congressional Black Caucus, an exclusive club which discriminates on the basis of race.

House members

In the 116th Congress several members are Democratic Socialists, and many are sponsors of the communist and totalitarian Green New Deal and Medicare for All bills.
