Progressives take on Democratic campaign committee

The Hill -A progressive political action committee hit the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, calling it "out-of-touch" on gun control laws and criticizing its lack of support for single-payer healthcare.

The Justice Democrats — founded by The Young Turks creator, progressive activist Cenk Uygur — shared its criticism of the DCCC in response to reports that the DCCC told lawmakers not to support single-payer healthcare and to refrain from talking about gun-control policies in the wake of a mass shooting last year.

"It's becoming evident that the DCCC — and the billionaire donors and revolving door consultants that make up the Democratic Party's establishment — believe Democrats can only take back Congress running on a watered-down message," the Justice Democrats said in a statement.
