      So… long story short: this is the worst I ever saw Pelosi screw progressives– not Pocan’s transactional definition, but actual progressives… in her entire congressional tenure. Anyone who ever doubted which side she’s on can now set those doubts to rest for all time. Let me a dd a caveat; the deal, apparently, was that 40% of the entire membership of each committee would be from the CPC. So, technically, the deal wasn’t broken. But that still, for example, leaves the Appropriations Committee with 11 actual economic progressives,  13 anti-progressives and 6 floating in the middle. The committee can easily be swayed in whatever they want to do by arch bankster-buddies Debbie Wasserman Schultz ($2,485,907), Henry Cuellar ($1,499,463), Ann Kirkpatrick ($1,615,753), Norma Torres ($177,560), Cheri Bustos ($1,097,471), Pete Aguilar ($965,965), Mike Quigley ($1,019,844), Sanford Bishop ($1,223,847), Ed Case ($539,917), Charlie Crist ($3,165,972) and Pete Visclosky ($704,795). I might add that committee chair, Nita Lowey has taken $5,244,643 from the Finance Sector.

      She got paid over 100 million dollars to do this.

      Yeah, I know, she shared it…..among the people she appointed
