Well, it is official, America. The Democrat platform for 2020 will all be socialists working to push free healthcare, confiscatory taxes, and the Green New Deal.
We know this for a fact because the last Democrat trying to run for the White House in 2020 who did not back the full-on socialist agenda just quit his bid for the Democrat nomination.
Ohio Democrat Sherrod Brown just threw in the towel and announced that he was ending his campaign.
Brown released a statement on Thursday:

Brown insisted, “I will keep calling out Donald Trump and his phony populism. I will keep fighting for all workers across the country,” but he will do so from the Senate.
As Breitbart News noted:
Notably, Brown was the only major office-holder among current candidates for the Democratic Party nomination who had declined to support both “Medicare for All” and the “Green New Deal” — at least in the specific legislation that other Democrats had proposed.
Though seen as a left-wing Democrat, Brown “said he would prefer to see incremental changes to Medicare like lowering the eligibility age from 65 to 55 or 50,” according to Politico.
Brown was one of the few Democrats who said he would not join the push for the Green New Deal.
Meanwhile, every other Democrat running has either tried to avoid talking much about the Green New Deal or has given the disastrous plan a full-throated support.
For instance, the Democrat frontrunner, Kamala Harris, has come out 100 percent in favor of this shallow, and ill-defined enviro-wacko idea.
On February 7, Harris tweeted out how pleased she was to co-sponsor the bill.

As Federalist writer David Harsanyi noted: “A number of Democratic Party presidential hopefuls — including Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, Julián Castro, and Beto O’Rourke, for starters — have already endorsed or expressed support for the “Green New Deal” (GND).”
