    Surprise! Dems are rushing to Amazon's defense on BEZOS act.

    “Bernie Sanders hit with avalanche of criticism over Amazon bashing bill.”

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/bernie-sanders-amazon-bill_us_5b91944ae4b0cf7b003e0858

    Joe Biden’s former top economist thinks Bernie Sanders’ bill attacking Amazon and Jeff Bezos ‘may backfire’

    Who needs a PR department when media and corporate Democrats are willing to run flack for you?

    Looks like the memo went out and they are going with the argument workers receiving public benefits will be discriminated against. Bernie will therefore hurt workers by incentivizing companies to give them a living wage.

    1. Very sound reasoning by Bernie

    Gets to the “root” of the problem and passes the radical banner with flying colors.

      3. Bernie always gets to the root of the problem.

      That seems to be one of the reasons they loathe the man. What he’s really revealing is the fact huge corporations get billions in government subsidies to keep their wages low and that’s exactly how neoliberal Democrats want it.

        9. i think an attack on subsidies for multinationals will likely play well in

        Peoria…the rust belt…and blighted communities generally.

    4. It's ham fisted. It will be much better to do nothing.

    5. They should get Chelsea Clinton to explain why Bernie is being mean

    She seemed to relish doing that.

      10. barf-inducing. i don't even have to watch it. here's what i guess

      it has — some photogenic ‘minorities’ (with children) doing some good community work (sponsored by Comcast) in their nice clean Comcast t-shirts, with a ‘caring’ voice over about all the great things Comcast is doing with their ill-gotten gains.  am I close?

    11. Well, that didn't take long: Oh no! That damned Vermonter whose not even

    a real Democrat is attacking Jeff Bezos, munificent Democratic Party donor and benefactor! Why, Jeff even wears blue jeans in public appearances, therefore he simply must be cool! We must defend Jeff! Oh, got it! Accuse Bernie Sanders of trying to cost poor people their jobs, yeah, that’s the ticket!  :sarcasm: , just in case.

      12. The standard tactic conservatives use to block public interest legislation.

      Now Democrats are using more and more frequently to defend their corporate sponsors: pit working Americans against each other.

      Taxing Amazon would cost poor people their jobs.

      Medicare for all would destroy Medicare for those already on it.

      Free college? What about those who paid for it themselves.

      Listening to mainstream Democrats argue against the public interest is getting to be like reading a Heritage Foundation policy paper.

    14. As surprising as dawn happening in the east.

    It is one way to get the rats to self identify however.
