Democrats working on.........

Feinstein to step down as top Democrat on Senate Judiciary Committee
 
================================================================
 
I want to thank

for her distinguished leadership on the Judiciary Committee during turbulent years. She has been a champion for common-sense gun safety, reproductive rights, and many other issues of critical importance to the American people.

I intend to seek the top Democratic position on the Judiciary Committee in the 117th Congress.

We have to roll up our sleeves and get to work on undoing the damage of the last four years and protecting fundamental civil and human rights.........

this knothead was conceived, carried to full term and given birth to...

or he wouldn't be here to deny it to others...

and it is what the godless secular democrat considers fundamentally fair.

denying life to the helpless voiceless unborn human...

and they know all about basic human rights.

If you want to know why COVID relief is tied up in Congress,
 
one key reason is that Republicans are demanding legal immunity for corporations
so they can expose their workers to COVID without repercussions.
 
Dems don’t want you to die for a check.
 
That’s what we’re fighting over.
 
:huh:

Rep. Alexandria Cortez doesn't represent the entire Democratic party in the House, but she certainly has a right to give her opinion.

And in this particular instance, her opinion does represent the entire Democratic Leadership in the House.

And there's nothing radical or socialistic or stupid in what she said.

If you don't get it oh, it's probably because you have usually worked for some entity that gives you a great deal of support and benefits-- like a governmental or state entity or a large company.

But most Americans work for small and independent businesses, who do not give them a lot of benefits or who would take advantage of them in a minute.

And that's the real world. 

Some Americans are being forced back on to their jobs with the loss of unemployment  benefits and are risking being exposed to covid-19 as a result.

These people deserve to be protected with a fair opportunity to file a grievance in court.

If you don't agree with that, it's because  this will never happen to you or you side with the corporations or business owners who are trying to take advantage of American employees.

'Immediate,' lasting aid: US economists urge a stimulus package with a second check

A group of economists aims to turn up the heat on stimulus negotiations as time runs short to pass a bill before the end of the year.

........Biden's selection of Janet Yellen as US Treasury Secretary lines up an ally who's no stranger to stimulus. Yellen, who served as Chair of the Federal Reserve under both Obama and President Donald Trump (until 2018), was involved in sending out stimulus checks during the 2008 US recession (PDF) and would be instrumental in delivering a second stimulus check if it's approved after Biden takes office.

But few think it's wise to wait that long.

"The pandemic is raging, and it's starting to do damage again," Mark Zandi, an economist at Moody's Analytics, told The New York Times this week, predicting that the economy will contract in the first half of 2021 without more stimulus......

......Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to support a smaller stimulus package than the $2.2 trillion Heroes Act that Democrats have been pushing since May, which would include a second direct payment for qualified adults and more money for dependents, plus enhanced unemployment benefits and funding for more programs besides.

The idea behind the strategy shift would be to get some aid through before inauguration and a larger bill after Biden takes office. Pelosi and Schumer have held fast to their stance that narrow measures are unacceptable to people hardest hit by the effects of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Republicans favor a smaller relief package as a stop-gap until the first mass coronavirus vaccines are administered in mid-2021. The Republican plan does not appear to include a second direct payment........

 

Here's what we know about where negotiations stand right now, and what could happen before the end of the year.........

My guess is that Pelosi disagrees with you as it relates to A.O.C.  responding.     Of course the GOP (Ted Cruz,,  mainly),   provided the bait to A.O.C.  and her ego being what it is, she took the bait.

Instead she should have had Pelosi respond (or not,  since Pelosi,   having tons of experience,  understands that using Twitter isn't a sound way to conduct negotiations).

All A.O.C. did was trap Pelosi,  making it much more difficult for her to get a deal done with Moscow Mitch.

THAT was what my post  was about and that has nothing to do with if such immunity is a good thing or not.

It's the Republicans who really created all of this nonsense about Bernie Sanders and Alexandria and the others.

And if anything, there's probably some Envy or jealousy within the Democratic ranks because some of these people are getting a lot more ink than others.

But, the Democrats are legendary for their in- fighting and lack of cohesiveness, which everybody points out.

Nevertheless,  the Democrats will not be controlled by any extreme right or left-wing cemented group, which has been shown to be the case historically.

Democrats aren't afraid to do what needs to be done, and doing it while returning to the center--

which is the way you win elections.

As Will Rogers used to say,

I don't belong to any organized political party--

I'm a Democrat.

I don't know where you been for the last few months but this has been the issue for the last few months and Pelosi has said this is the issue for the last few months and that's what's been holding it all up for the last few months-- in addition to more funding for local and state governments.

How is it silly if such progressives prevent any compromise legislation getting passed by Congress so that Biden can sign it?

What is silly is to pretend there isn't a major riff within the Dem party and how that will have bigger impact on Dems in DC getting things done then resistance from Moscow Mitch.       MCNBC just had a very good panel discussion related to Biden bringing the country together,  as well as the Dem party, with 3 Dems.     The black progressive was very open;   he said "unity" was total folly;  that he doesn't wish to compromise with conservatives or even the Dem establishment since they enabled the white power structure.   

Another Dem was all Pollyanna;   Biden will unite the country;   Dems will find common  solutions,  work with the GOP,  etc..    a bunch of BS but it sounds nice!

Most black voters are not Progressive,

are not part of BLM

and do not March out in the street.

They are just ordinary working-class and middle-class Americans who go to work every day and have families, go to church on Sunday and want to see fairness.

They're your postal employees

they are your grocery store clerks

they are in insurance agents and they are teachers and doctors and lawyers excetera excetera. Just like anybody else.

Comparing the average black American to a socialist or even a BLM activist is ridiculous--

But more like something a trump supporter or a republican would say. LOL

Democrats--

 black, white, Latino et al--

live and work in the real world and have real-world expectations, which have nothing to do with Pollyanna or any other Concepts like that.

Un,   the last few months was leading up to the election of Biden.     Everyone within the Dem party mostly "played nice" with their eye on the goal;  DEFEAT TRUMP!

I'm very happy about that since Trump was by far the worst President (and one of the worst human beings),   I have encounter.  

One primary reason Pelosi didn't agree to a second Covid-19 bill was related to the above;  The Dems didn't wish to give Trump a "win";   To have that a-hole send out checks weeks before the election with his name on them.    

The election is now over so Pelosi can now make a deal with Moscow Mitch.   Again,  my point is that A.O.C.  appearing to represent the Dem House members is NOT a good way to get a deal done.    Of course the GOP puts out misleading information related to progressives and their agenda.  DUH.    But that doesn't change the point I'm making (that A.O.C. should be part of any deal making).   In fact it only reinforces it;   E.g.  why Biden lost Florida,  due to Trump being able to increase votes from people-of-color that came from socialist countries. 

  This will be true for all the possible legislation that will need to pass in the next two years.     Pelosi and Mitch have to make deals.     All Biden needs to do is sign them.

I never compared the average black American to a socialist.     You must of forgotten that it is you that use skin color to place groups of people into little boxes.

I only mentioned the black progressive that was on MSNBC.     I never claimed he represented the views of all blacks or all progressive or even black progressives!

 The Latino vote in Florida has always been controlled by the Cubans. This has to do more with social class and race than anything else.

It's the racism in the United States that puts people in Little Boxes according to their skin color. I just point out that that's wrong.

Actually I'm personally very fortunate that I don't have to watch CNN, MSNBC or read the LA Times to know what different groups of people are saying or thinking because I live and work around all different kinds of people and I have a chance to actually come in contact with them and hear what they're saying and thinking about different subjects.

But that's the way it's always been in our neck of the woods, we interact with all kinds of people.

In Kansas?     Uh,,   I live in Southern California.     Home to the largest population of different kinds of people than any city in the entire world.    

Here one has to interact with all kinds of people.      That is what I love about the area.

Problem is the differences between House and Senate.  What are they?  Got this from a CNET article referenced in above.  But I'm sure there are more.

$1 Trillion for local govs. (Dems),  Maybe something down the road sometime maybe (McConnell).    Liability shielding for corps. and businesses (McConnell).  Maybe something, but much less than what McConnell wants (Pelosi).  Earned Income and Child tax credits (Dems.),  Noting? (McConnell).  Money for Covid treatment, tesing and tracing (Dems.), maybe something (McConnell)  Funding for schools and child care-$230 Billion (Dems);  Something (McConnell).  https://www.cnet.com/personal-finance/why-isnt-there-a-new-stimulus-bill-yet-heres-whats-gumming-up-the-works/
