She’s working hard? How? She won’t even put a 15 dollar minimum wage up for a vote! And I know you’ll say it would never pass in the senate and that’s probably true, but she could then tell the American people that the Republicans are exploiting their pain and anger and frustration to further their pro corporate agenda, without doing a single thing for them. She would NEVER say that, but she SHOULD. That’s my point. She’s “working hard” to compromise with a party that’s so far to the right it’s pulled the Democratic Party to the right with them. That’s my anger. And I laid out an answer at the end as to what to do. Be HONEST. Tell the American people what’s going on, and you can pressure the republicans back.
