      Beto O’Rourke Is A Thirdway Boy

       

      “…Following Beto O’Rourke’s spirited run for the U.S. Senate, powerful voices in the Democratic Party establishment have touted the outgoing Texas congressman as a 2020 presidential candidate who, as the party’s standard-bearer, would offer a vision of America contrasting against that of Republicans. However, a Capital & Main review of congressional votes shows that even as O’Rourke has represented one of the most Democratic congressional districts in the entire country, he has in many instances undermined his own party’s efforts to halt the GOP agenda, frequently voting against the majority of House Democrats in support of Republican bills and Trump administration positions.

      Capital & Main reviewed the 167 votes O’Rourke has cast in opposition to the majority of his own party in the House during his six-year tenure in Congress. Many of those votes were not progressive dissents alongside other left-leaning lawmakers but were instead votes to help pass Republican-sponsored legislation.

      Beto isn’t even fit to run for Senate let alone president.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

      he isn’t a fraud, but he sure as h e l l isn’t any kind of a progressive.  El Paso is a city that is a huge oil and gas distribution point, they simply pull his strings.  He also isn’t an honest man, having made his commitment not to take money and then taking the money.  No progressive Democrat should vote for him at all, and I hope David Sirota continues to expose him, because he is exposing Neera Tanden and the CAP machine that is trying to attack Bernie supporters and sow division.

      Beto is no fraud, but he is really my father’s Republican.
