Bill Maher says that there is no political party that truly represents the interests of progressives. “The Democrats are what the Republicans used to be — a corporatist party that represents big business and doesn’t stand up for progressive issues,” Maher told CNN’s Howard Kurtz. Maher believes that the Democratic Party has taken place of the GOP and the Republican Party should go away completely.

“We need a whole new party that is what the Democratic Party used to be,” said Maher.

A full transcript of Bill Maher’s interview with Howard Kurtz is available here.
