Yesterday, I shared from Bustle the "Seven Feminist Aspects of Hillary Clinton's Economic Plan." Today, Rolling Stone goes five better with the "Twelve Progressive Promises from Hillary Clinton's Economic Speech."
Clinton didn't leave the Democratic base out in the cold. Many of her most specific policy proposals are unmistakably progressive.
Here we survey the 12 leftiest economic promises Clinton made:
1. "We have to raise the minimum wage and implement President Obama's new rules on overtime."
2. "I'll crack down on bosses who exploit employees by misclassifying them as contractors."
3. "Let's establish an infrastructure bank that can channel more public and private funds, channel those funds to finance world-class airports, railways, roads, bridges and ports."
4. "I'm committed to seeing every 4-year-old in America have access to high-quality preschool in the next ten years."

5. "I support the Buffett Rule, which makes sure that millionaires don't pay lower rates than their secretaries."

6. "I have also called for closing the carried interest loophole, which lets wealthy financiers pay an artificially low rate."

7. "When the government recovers money from corporations or individuals for harming the public, it should go into a separate trust fund to benefit the public. It, could for example, help modernize infrastructure or even be returned directly to taxpayers."
8. "I've proposed a new $1,500 apprenticeship tax credit for every worker [businesses] train and hire."
9. "I've called for reviving the New Markets Tax Credit and Empowerment Zones to create greater incentives to invest in poor and remote areas."

10. "I will soon be proposing a new plan to reform capital gains taxes to reward longer-term investments that create jobs more than just quick trades."

11. "I will offer plans to rein in excessive risks on Wall Street and ensure that stock markets work for everyday investors, not just high frequency traders and those with the best – or fastest – connections."
12. "Another engine of strong growth should be comprehensive immigration reform….Bringing millions of hard-working people into the formal economy would increase our gross domestic product by an estimated $700 billion over ten years."
Hillary's other big speech yesterday, to the National Council of La Raza, is garnering headlines for her one big word to Donald Trump - "Basta!" But she had a lot more to say than that, and not just to that one Republican frontrunner:
"To all the other Republicans running for president, why did it take weeks for most of you to speak out? You're normally such a talkative bunch," Clinton said.
"Suddenly you have nothing to say? The sad truth is that even if some of the other candidates now condemn those words, if you look at many of their policies, it's hard to tell the difference."
Clinton said Monday that Republicans who say they support legal status for undocumented immigrants are really calling for second-class status. She once again promised to push for comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, and promised to protect the deportation relief programs put in place by President Barack Obama. She said that if Congress does not pass reform, she will go even further.
"It's not enough to use language of respect if you refuse to support policies of respect," Clinton said.
The New York Times reports that Clinton will be going above and beyond campaign finance law requirements and disclosing the donors who bundle on her behalf. She is the first presidential candidate to make this pledge:
The decision was communicated in recent days to her top fund-raisers, known as “bundlers” because they bundle together contributions from networks of friends and business associates. Because candidates can only accept a few thousand dollars from any one donor, campaigns rely on teams of hundreds of such volunteers to raise a substantial portion of the hundreds of millions of dollars now needed to sustain a competitive presidential bid.
But federal law does not require candidates to disclose the names of bundlers unless they are registered lobbyists. That means it impossible to know the names of the people whom candidates rely on the most to raise money — and what industries and interests those people represent — unless campaigns volunteer the information.
Mrs. Clinton, who has been criticized by Republican candidates for what they characterize as excessive secrecy, is now the only candidate for president who has volunteered to disclose the names of her top campaign fund-raisers. No Republican candidate has pledged to disclose his or her bundlers, and the last Republican candidate to do so was Senator John McCain in 2008.
The American Federation of Teachers endorsed Hillary Clinton over the weekend, the first major union to throw their weight behind a candidate in the primary.
They have now put online the entire questionnaire responses submitted by three Democratic candidates - ClintonSanders, and O'Malley.  
The endorsement was backed widely by the membership of the union:
Hillary Clinton enjoys overwhelming support as AFT members’ first
choice to be the Democratic presidential nominee.

Fully two-thirds (67%) of Democratic primary voters pick Clinton, giving her a commanding 48-point lead over Bernie Sanders (19%) while O’Malley, Webb, and Chafee all receive no more than 1% of the vote. Clinton is the clear first choice among every division within AFT.
AFT Democrats express strong enthusiasm for Clinton as their nominee.
Fully 84% of Clinton voters strongly support her (higher than the 72% of Sanders voters who strongly support him), and strong Clinton supporters outnumber strong Sanders supporters by four to one within AFT. Clinton also enjoys more support from Sanders voters (76% choose Clinton as their second choice) than Sanders receives from Clinton voters (46% name Sanders as their second choice).
