It’s always good when the other party is engaged in a circular firing squad, especially when Nancy Pelosi is on the losing end.
In news that would be on the front pages if our media wasn’t a joke, Bernie Sanders, the leader of the socialist left wing of the Democrat party just took aim at Nancy Pelosi, the mainstream leader, saying her policies send a “terrible, terrible message.”
Sanders blasted Pelosi and her lackey Chuck Schumer for considering reinstating the SALT deduction, which would lower taxes for some in blue states.
He was asked “what if Dems reinstate “the SALT, which is a tax break for rich people in blue states?” Sanders replied: “It sends a terrible, terrible message…You can’t be on the side of the wealthy and the powerful if you’re gonna really fight for working families.”
“I think it is fair to say as a result of heavy-duty corporate campaign contributions, [the] Democratic Party has drifted away from being the party of FDR and even Harry Truman in being understood and perceived correctly as a working class party,” Sanders said.
Let’s stipulate that Sanders is absolutely full of it here, as is Pelosi. Sanders is literally having heartburn that anyone would have to pay less taxes, ever. That should tell you all you need to know about this wild-haired old coot.
Pelosi isn’t quite that crazy, but she’s something even worse – a hypocrite. She’s talking the talk of a left-winger, but when it comes to policy, she’s firmly in the big-money corporate crony camp.
Both of them are unfit to be in any kind of leadership. Let’s hope that they’ll undermine each other to the point that neither one can continue in office.
