Why do you think the progressives in America are so ineffective at the national level?
The progressive wing of the Democratic party has effectively been neutered and silenced, their votes counted on with out actually doing anything to court them. In response to this treatment the progressives in the Democratic party have done basically nothing to try and force the party at large to cater to their pet issues. Why do you think this is?
Quantitative easing is a Neoliberal economic policy though, not a progressive policy. The last time progressive economic policy was enacted in the United States was during the Keynesian era from FDR to Reagan. Though those policies would not be considered truly progressive under current progressive economic theory. Austrian economics has been running the ship since Reagan and it hasn't exactly left us in a favorable position.
For reference, a progressive economic theory to counter point the Austrian school/Neoliberal old guard would be Modern Monetary Theory (also known as Chartalism). You can get a basic run down here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chartalism and I'd suggest reading this article to see the theories in action: http://www.thenation.com/article/159288 … -austerity
Everybody has the right to raise their voice,if they are not doing anything now after getting some better response,may be they will do a lot for the party.

This is an actual plaque hanging at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. The excuses given from the Liberals who made this are a wide stretch of the imagination.
