LAST UPDATED: July 15, 2020
What makes a candidate “super?” A super progressive meets two criteria:
- He or she supports single-payer Medicare for All.
- She or he accepts NO corporate money.
Based on the above criteria, candidates invariably stand on a super progressive platform. They support policies like the Green New Deal, free public higher education, economic justice and human rights for all, and public-funded elections.
