Comment line “no longer working” …
My message to Pelosi and Hoyer and DCCC would be that AOC and other true liberals
like Bernie Sanders have my full support and that the DP should stop taking money from
corporations right now –
Might as well go to Pelosi and Hoyer cause that’s where the instructions come from
to protect their sponsors –
If anyone missed just who Steny Hoyer’s sponsors are – here’s a list –
and an idea of what he is doing according to a former candidate from Maryland who
challenged him …
From Pat Elder – Dem candidate Maryland –
Along with Speaker of the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Majority Whip, Rep. James Clyburn
Assistant Speaker, Rep. Ben Ray Lujan and Dem Caucus Chair, Rep. Kaheem Jeffries)
(After 2016, that leadership, imo, should not be in place – it’s the “brakes” on anything truly revolutionary happening in the Dem Party.)
The Corporations Behind Rep. Steny Hoyer - Steny Hoyer’s campaign and his political action committee, AmeriPAC have raked in $6.6 million so far this election cycle. (Opensecrets.org)
Rep. Hoyer doesn’t need this money for his campaign here in Maryland. Instead, he contributes
it to mostly conservative candidates throughout the country who are willing to act on behalf of the companies below. Meanwhile, Hoyer travels across the country, persuading progressives in primaries to drop out of their races.
Here’s a partial list of the most powerful corporations that give Rep. Hoyer tens of thousands of dollars each election cycle. Think about their agenda and then think about yours, and keep in mind these companies typically give in equal measures to Republicans as well. It’s the reason we don’t have single-payer health care, universal daycare and college. It is also the reason why we do have several ongoing wars and looming climate disaster.
