      RINSE EYES WITH FULL STRENGTH BLEACH AFTER VIEWING!

       

       

      -snip-

       

      A new Data For Progress poll shows that voters– across the board, and unlike Joe Pausin’ Manchin– overwhelmingly support Biden’s Build Back Better agenda and want the wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share (including 64% of independents). Let’s start with the big specific components of the bill. Data for Progress reported that “The poll found that 69% of voters, including 81% of Democrats, 68% of Independents, and 55% of Republicans, support passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal. Additionally, 61% of voters, including 83% of Democrats, 58% of Independents, and 40% of Republicans, support passage of the Build Back Better agenda through reconciliation. The poll also found that 60% of voters, including 64% of Independents, believe that the wealthy and large corporations should pay their fair share of taxes so that the U.S. can invest in long-term care for seniors, healthcare, and clean energy initiatives. Voters also overwhelmingly oppose cutting a single major provision of the Build Back Better agenda.”

      Lindsey Graham, by the way, voted– along with 19 other Senate Republicans including Mitch McConnell– for the “hard” conservative infrastructure bill. Last week the York Co. Republican Party censured him, something the Aiken County GOP already had done. “The local party,” reported Cailyn Derickson, “which has had a strong influence in the York County area, said Graham did not ‘represent conservative values and protect the Republican platform’ when he voted in favor of the bill, which focuses on bridge and road repairs, electric vehicle charging station expansion and broadband expansion… [They claimed he] ‘turned his back on the Republican Party platform, those who worked to get him elected, and has put America’s interests second to China.’ The local Republican Party plans to present the censure, a formal statement of disapproval in the form of a resolution, to the state Republican Party.”

       

      So… now you know. The members of Congress aren’t leading the base over the fascist cliff. The radicalized base is pushing the members over that cliff. And how did that happen? Ah… good question. And a team from ProPublica set out to investigate and answer the questions about how the local party is being taken over by Nazis and other assorted fascists. They blame Steve Bannon, who was certainly in on the planning stages of the attempted coup. The day before, he crowed on his neo-Nazi War Room podcast that “All hell will break loose tomorrow” and then, on the morning of: “It’s them against us. Who can impose their will on the other side?”

       

      In February, right after Trump pardoned him for federal fraud crimes, Bannon claimed Trump lost because the Republican Party sold him out. “This is your call to action” and he announced that the solution “was to seize control of the GOP from the bottom up. Listeners should flood into the lowest rung of the party structure: the precincts. ‘It’s going to be a fight, but this is a fight that must be won, we don’t have an option,’ Bannon said on his show in May. ‘We’re going to take this back village by village … precinct by precinct.’ Precinct officers are the worker bees of political parties, typically responsible for routine tasks like making phone calls or knocking on doors. But collectively, they can influence how elections are run. In some states, they have a say in choosing poll workers, and in others they help pick members of boards that oversee elections.”

      From August 27 to 30, 2021, Invest in America and Data for Progress conducted a survey of 1,201 likely voters nationally using web panel respondents. The sample was weighted to be representative of likely voters by age, gender, education, race, and voting history. The survey was conducted in English. The margin of error is ±3 percentage points.

      Universal pre-kindergarten for all 3- and 4-year-olds  The rich have au-peres and nannies for their kids, so that’s dead on arrival.

      Two Years of tuition-free community college      The rich have their Ivy League and private colleges, so again, not necessary.

      Lowering the Medicare eligibility age from 65 to 60    The rich don’t really use Medicare, so who cares?

      Repairing and modernizing K-12 school buildings    That might be nice, schools can be such eyesores, and they cause hideous traffic jams in mid-afternoon.

      Investing in long-term care for seniors and people with disabilities    Invest??  Could be a good tax shelter.  Let’s see the IPO.

      Providing a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, those who work in essential industries, and for people who would be unsafe returning to their country of origin   If they are citizens, will they still work at sub-minimum wage jobs and make it possible to kill unions with day laborers?  Yup, sounds pretty good.

      Modernizing the electric grid, improving reliability and funding new research   Another investment possibility.  Let’s see the limited partnership prospectus.

      Creating A Civilian Climate Corps to add jobs to address climate change     Another New Deal knock off?  No thanks.

      Extending child tax benefits for families    Our kids are already subchapter S corporations, so nah, not interested.  If our tax attorney can see another loophole in it for us, we might change our mind.

      When you remember that the 1% get 99% of what they want, and the 99% get 1% of what they want, it all makes perfect sense.
