If this surprises you, it means you have not been paying attention to how corrupt Nancy is and has been for many,many TOO DAMN MANY YEARS!

As soon as I can I will make another donation to Shahid Bhuttar who is running for her seat.

Just when you think Nancy couldn’t sink any lower, she grabs a shovel, hands it to Her man Friday, and has him start digging.
We are by any conventional definition, an oligarchy, as our “appointed” leadership class now feels the need to pay proper homage to the ruling class first before enacting any actual legislation. We are like their dogs, dutifully waiting for master to finish his meal, so that when Nancy clears the table we may get to pick at the chicken bones or an untouched brussel sprout. Nancy will gleefully drop it into our dirty food bowls and actually convince herself that she’s done us a huge favor.

She is horrible. Sad that she continues to get elected. Not even just on policy, but the way she goes about things, who she allows into the policy creating process and who she doesn’t, who funds her and those like her. In what universe would COBRA cost less than an expansion of Medicare? She doesn’t expand Medicare because she doesn’t want a large share of the public to be under Medicare, doesn’t want them to have anyhting to compare with private insurance, and to have to take it away. She would rather pay more for private, inefficient care, than Medicare. What is even worse is her insistence on pay go, which means that whatever deficits are creating by this spending, she will push for cuts in the long-term to offset this spending.

the sad fact–this is just a continuation of their activities in service to the same corporate crooks as the Republicans–if we want to have a political party that represents us --we will have to quit supporting the criminals and get some real leadership–a leadership that is not a paid for shill for the corporate dystopia we now live in

The “master legislator” legislates for the masters. Who knew?

But don’t worry, “nothing will substantially change” says Status Quo Demented Joe.

Americans, morons all.

Oligarchs taking care of oligarchs. And 99% of us are not in that club. Quit voting these oligarchs into office.

maybe all the voters in her district are rich just like her and couldn’t care less about people less well off. She will probably be re elected this fall.

THIS is all you need to know about PHUCKING Nancy and the “Democrat” Party.
And this the type of thinking that we can expect from Dementia Joe or his replacment

How can congress kill off demand by cutting off income of the purchasers (the working people) and expect economic growth. It baffles me.

We need to vote in a party that will hold these crooks accountable.

Dream on

Pelosi is responsible for far more American deaths than the perpetrators of 9-11.

Bhuttar is great! If he doesn’t win by a landslide over Pelosi, then there is something seriously wrong with the San Francisco electorate.

Vote you say? They don’t matter! We have to fight on the streets and bring capitalism to it’s knees. There are no other avenues left open.

The Democrats are clearly MORE EVIL than the big bad Republicans. They keep whispering sweet nothings to you while cutting you into a thousand pieces which they feed to their corporate masters. At least the Republicans would put you out of your misery quickly. Instead of an 1815 page bill, it would be far simpler to just print out one picture of a hand with the middle finger extended to all the citizens.

Wait until Mnunchin and McConnell outplay Nancy and Chuck during negotiations prior to any vote on this bill. If you’re rich, you’ll be richer. If you’re an average wage slave, you’ll be even more destitute.

Anyone ready for a progressive third party yet?

If any one believes democracy is possible under a 2 party system, look no further than this. One coin with 2 sides. Fascist vs. Nazi.

What a choice…
