Democratic Party to Shift Focus From Wall Street To Working Families

WASHINGTON, DC - Alarmed by voter resentment against the established political class, Debbie Wasserman Shultz announced a major policy shift by the Democratic Party to appeal to an electorate increasingly disenfranchised by the political elite. Referencing numerous studies which show the devastating economic effect of military intervention, off shoring, suppressed wages and increased costs for housing, education and health care, Wasserman Shultz said "Trickle-down, supply-side economic systems just haven't worked to the benefit of American families".

The change came as a shock to Democratic Party's standard bearer, Hillary Clinton. Clinton expressed alarm that her once popular economic and military views might soon make her an outsider in her own political party. In a press release, Clinton defended the Democratic Party's relationship with Wall Street by saying "I would not have gotten where I am today without the help of Wall Street. I want to make sure every woman in America has this chance".

Working families embraced the change. "We need to change direction," said temp worker Llamar O'Neil, currently earning $12 an hour as as a wellness coach for United Health, a large US based insurance company.

Most analysts believe that while there may be some growing pains for Mrs. Clinton, the transition would provide an opportunity for her to update her skill set to meet the demands of a more competitive political marketplace.
