Well, maybe we can give some points for honesty, though it’s still a pretty crappy thing to say. Who are we kidding? These are Democrats we’re talking about. With the 2018 midterms less than 20 days away, Democrats are feeling good about their chances to retake the House. The Senate is cooked for them. The field is simply too unfavorable. Yet, if they’re successful in retaking the lower chamber, we could see the return of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The thought makes me want to commit ritual suicide, but here we are.
With House Democrats in charge, expect insanity. I mean, we’ve seen it hardcore this year, but jack it up to eleven, with endless subpoenas, investigations, and the grand resurgence of the Red Scare. Yes, Russian collusion nonsense will reach an ever greater fever pitch than it is now. As for the economy, well, high taxes and regulations are going to try and make a comeback. The economy is booming right now. Just watch what happens when you put a Democrat in charge, especially since this party is undergoing a far left facelift. For those who disagree with this route and might get screwed over with this lurch to the Left approach to the economy, Rep. Pelosi was frank: "so be it" (via Free Beacon):
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said over the weekend that her preferred economic policies would entail "collateral damage" on certain groups.
Pelosi was going back and forth on climate change and its connection to job creation and prosperity with Paul Krugman, an economist and New York Times columnist. After finishing a sweeping discussion about those topics, Pelosi made the case that liberal policies would entail "collateral damage for some others who do not share our view" but ultimately help the country.
"We owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there is some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn't be our original purpose," Pelosi said.
She wasn’t specific, but we all know whom she was probably referring to with these remarks: Rural voters, Republicans…Trump voters. They don’t care about these people, which is roughly half the country. They only care about the liberal enclaves and the cities. Typical, but also the only areas where liberals reign supreme, peddling their garbage politics with an appalling sense of arrogance, which masks their idiocy. We all know what their economic agenda is; Obama executed one of the cornerstones before Trump stopped it: the clean power plan (aka a jobs and economy killer).
It was a plan that punished the states that didn’t vote for him in 2012, put millions of jobs from Black and Latino communities on the chopping block, and cost an ungodly amount of jobs and economic activity. The goal was to reduce carbon emissions by nearly 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030. It would impact red, coal-producing states the most. The price for progress is the de facto regional genocide for rural America. Communities long supported by coal would be torched and families left in economic ruins, but at least liberals can go to sleep knowing…that they did nothing to stop the phantom threat of global warming.
What’s more is that this shoddy plan also targeted fixed-income seniors, whose home budgets, along with those of middle America, were going to be set aflame thanks to rising energy costs. It’s the same record, folks. Democrats are just trying to replay it. Don’t let them. Don’t forget to vote this November.
