11. Because economic progressivism doesn't have mindshare.

It would take the equivalent of a progressive Reagan to reverse the trend. it would take a Teddy Roosevelt, who reached the Presidency by accident, was a catalyst for the Progressive movement. President Obama did reverse declining mindshare that government could work for the common good with the ACA, but it looks like that will be a transient victory. Reaganism and the resulting scorn for the federal government continues to be a strong roadblock.
