I think that a drive towards equality - economic, social, and political - is an important component of leftism. That includes anti-capitalism and anti-racism. I think another important component is the desire to uproot the current system entirely and install a new system based on entirely different values and principles - that's why I don't consider Social Democrats to be true leftists because they want to reform capitalism rather than ultimately replace it.

I am an organizer with a graduate employee union - people are very worried about the effect that this will have on them - so many of them will be forced to drop out if this provision goes through, which means that many years of their lives spent dedicated to study don't get them the thing that proves they did it.

Incredibly fucked up and downright evil - I expect nothing more from Republicans.
