The unions wanted them to vote for it because they were given the choice of 1) the imposed agreement getting pushed through or 2) the imposed agreement getting pushed through with a separate 7 days sick leave bill that would almost certainly fail. Saying they “wanted” it is not a fair assessment when the unions were given a choice between no chance and slim chance, with no option for a positive outcome.
Ok but AOC did go to the met gala
Correct. They had almost zero leverage. The Union's best outcome was a hail mary to get the amendment through. The squad followed what the unions wanted to do under the circumstances. This isnt like infrastructure bills where they needed squad votes to pass it. They had no leverage. Calling them class traitors is extremely misplaced in this situation.
If the squad's constituents asked them to vote for it good on them for listening imo
The imposed settlement was going to pass either way because America’s #1 rule is “don’t fuck with the money”. Could have voted for the 7 days bill and against the imposition to at least show solidarity that this is bullshit.
to be clear, going against the wishes of the union rank and file, would be choosing your option
don hughes is an acquired taste but he's joking. he's just super dry
He's great at writing things that are supposed to piss everyone off
I miss my shitty belk store
I do not know who that person is.
he is the poster of the tweet, was just explaining his schtick
You son of a bitch
Biden back to pro-labor status
Just one guy's opinion, but he thinks it will hold up due to lack of standing. Federalist Society probably wants to avoid opening that can of worms
Soooo we must protect MSNBC at all costs?
Lake of fire for all of them
Lake of fire for them all
I can’t watch any infotainment. It’s all brain rot.
This is so dumb. Make it Michigan or Pennsylvania. Some state that deserves the extra attention because they'll actually vote for the candidate.
Don’t mind it being a southern state.
Quid pro quo for Clyburn knifing Bernie during the primaries?
Make it California. Fuck making it any podunk state that has fewer people than LA County
10% of the American population. 5th largest economy in the wurld
Let’s just spin a big wheel and do it that way
Imagine how many relieved Iowans there are who know they won’t be bombarded with political ads way before the rest of us.
The thinking is that small candidates like Bernie 2016 or Howard Dean or hell, Jimmy Carter wouldn't stand a chance trying to compete in a huge multi-market state like California where the campaign costs would be 50x more expensive.
think it would be a pretty solid idea to boot iowa from the union just in case
Can I add a few to go with it?
south carolina and michigan are good states to start with
also getting rid of caucuses is good
The ads fucking suck. So do the dipshit candidates showing up at the state fair and parades. Trump told a crowd after the caucus that he loved Iowa and him and Melania were gonna buy a place here. Chuds lapped it up along with every other piece of garbage he spewed. Joe Lieberman told Jon Stewart he wanted to buy an RV and take an Iowa small town tour. I've seen them Joe, you're not missing much.
The only shitty part is the state will lose a lot of money.
Petition to donut hole Des Moines? I'd rather stay in the union.
No thanks y’all got a ton of shitheads.
Progressives get traction in CA. Give them an early boost
Media: "Progressive message fades after initial strong start"
idk what any of this means but SC is stupidly red and we keep electing Foghorn Leghorn to governor
Lmao At 85 north when you get out of Gwinnett county
Walker is done.
Rural AA Dems saving the day.
That's way more non-Atlanta blue than I'd expect.
other cities are also dem-leaning (just not their suburbs unlike atlanta)
military bases are becoming dem-leaning
persons of color in the black belt
"How does MTG keep getting elected?"
points to map
Wouldn’t North Carolina make more sense though?
Internet punditry: Eventually, everything everyone does is bad.
There's also thinking that there should be campaign finance reform so small candidates have a chance to be heard no matter where they're campaigning
SC dems(which is to say black people) went hard in the paint for Joe after Bernie got off to a hot start. It's no surprise Joe is a big fan of the SC democratic primary.
