Every once in a while the a politician slips up and speaks the truth…
Democrats have spent the past six years attempting a divide and conquer strategy aimed at small slices of the population while ignoring everyone else. Schumer learned a belated lesson from the midterms, and acknowledged it this week. Some Democrats still haven’t gotten the message.
And this was in the comments:
The Democrats could have taken out the credit card and bought a host of real improvements that they could have pointed at for generations… A vigorous, active stimulus would then have shown the Democrats could be trusted to govern and made something like, say, Medicare-for-all much more possible.

What possible motivation would Republicans have for dancing with the MSM?
ABC and NBC have instituted a three-week blackout — on network broadcasts, websites and social media pages — of the devastating admissions of MIT economist Jonathan Gruber. The ACA architect repeatedly boasted of deceiving the American public about legislation that cost six million people their family doctor. This should be the final straw in any relationship the GOP and RNC leadership has with these networks, period. No more debates, no more appearances on “Meet The Press,” “Morning Joe,” or “This Week” on ABC.

Love this… there’s a website that takes Doonesbury’s comics and “fixes” them. In other words, substitutes the truth in place of what Trudeau first attempted. See images below for Truesbury and the original it came from.

Remember this the next time Republicans are accused of being the party of Big Money.
In the last days before the midterm elections, Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmentalist who spent at least $57 million of his own money to influence Tuesday’s outcome — more than any other single donor — set off on a frenetic get-out-the-vote tour to Colorado, Iowa and finally New Hampshire. There, he told business owners in Portsmouth that climate change is an economic issue, thanked college students in Durham for knocking on doors, and gave a pep talk to canvassers in Dover before they fanned out to collect voter data on their smartphones.After all that, Mr. Steyer appears to have largely wasted his time and money.

Speaking of speaking the truth to power…
If Mattera were documenting the corruption of Mitch McConnell, the Koch brothers, and Bill O’Reilly instead of Harry Reid, Tom Steyer, and Jay Z, you can be sure he’d receive a glowing reception from the Today Show to MSNBC.
