Schumer says he’s not supporting the bill. Yeah right.
He can count votes, he doesn’t need to actually vote for it. I mean he spoke to AIPAC, what, he can’t speak to these members as Senate Minority Leader?
If the leadership actually wanted to take a stand against this, then they would.
Warren of course gets whatever actual credit she deserves.
Over at POLITICO where the “moderates” get a chance to make their case about why they support the bill, the characterization of course that it represents a “bi-partisan” solution, and “an opportunity to show that things can still get done in a bitterly divided Congress”.
See a pattern here? I mean those same old tired fucking slogans.
Whenever lawmakers are saying things like “bi-partisan”, and “moving forward” and bemoaning a “bitterly divided Congress” just know the Corporate State voting block of Corporate State Democrats are busily at work.
Heitkamp was quoted as saying “this is old-school legislating”.
Good fucking grief, yeah, we are that fucking stupid.
Politico’s newest sub-headline on this is, now pay attention…
For the bill’s supporters, the legislation is a chance to show voters that it’s still possible to get things done in an often paralyzed Congress.
Same old same old. I mean, how many fucking years have we been hearing this messaging?
The schmuck Joe Lieberman’s No Labels of course will be pushing this messaging ad-nauseum.
His group’s messaging “going forward” is all about casting this gang of corporate whores, this voting block of Corporate State Democrats working with Republicans (Corporate State Republicans is redundant) as “centrists”, and rescuing Congress from the grips of the “extreme left” and “extreme right”.
See how this works? The teachers protesting this week for better health insurance in their contract and higher pay of course would fall into this characterization of “extreme left”.
So would the many groups around the country calling for a true Universal Single Payer system.
Corporate State Democrats are playing for keeps. They will fight anything going against the system firmly in place that has taken this country into endless wars of Empire and Corporate Governance, bearing the fruits of historic inequalities, mass surveillance, and the rest of the fucking mess.
But, I must make sure to give the Democratic Party due credit!!!
Warren thank you very much for what credit you actually deserve.
Schumer, you can _____ _____ ______.
