Can this actually be happening?
Are Democrats who’ve been riddled with RePug bullets for 30 years finally Bringing a Gun To a Gunfight ? ? ?
House Democrats are probing the nation’s largest insurance companies for lavish spending, demanding reams of compensation data and schedules of retreats and conferences. Letters sent to 52 insurance companies by Democratic leaders demand extensive documents for an examination of ‘extensive compensation and other business practices in the health insurance industry.” The letters set a deadline of Sept. 14 for the documents.
When asked for comment, an insurance industry
spokesman mackerel pulled three hooks out of his mouth, bled all over the place, and said: “This is nothing more than a taxpayer-funded fishing expedition designed to silence health plans.”
The Tide Is Turning . . .
ActBlue has raised more than $150,000 in only 24 hours for progressive Democrats who took the pledge to not vote for any bill without a public option. House Democrats expressed strong support for the public option in their weekly caucus meeting, with everyone in support of it because their constituents had pressed them on it. Labor is warning Democrats that they’ll sit out specific elections if any members oppose a public plan.
SOMEONE’S fucking stupidity has turned an electoral mandate for change into a RePug/Blue Dog ass kissing festival. If that fucking stupidity doesn’t come to a screeching halt, support for “Democrats” is going to come to a screeching halt.
I’m going to explain this to you, Rahm.
It’s called democracy.
It’s called telling your barking Blue Dogs to shut the fuck up.
It’s called taking the Democratic Party back.
Get used to it.
