Want more and better Democrats in Congress?
Take a page from the Republican play book: have your candidates for office sign a pledge and then hold them to it.
The pledge? Bring back pork barrel spending. Bring home the Federal dollars to your district or state. Tax the rich to pay for it.
It's not really a true jobs guarantee program, and it would be a far far better thing if they spend the money on stuff we really need, but even bridges to nowhere provide jobs, plus they're less morally objectionable than, say, drone manufacturing.
We already know that the Democratic party isn't going to allow Medicare for All, and while it's possible they might allow some wars to end, there's not much likelihood they'll allow "war" to end. But jobs are something they can understand, and pork barrel spending is something at least used to understand.
