Progressives Are Pi$$ed!
Libs are outraged after the progressive democrats folded on
revenue adjustments tax hikes pilfering more cash from the American taxpayer to fund their socialist agenda.
News Alert pointed to this rant today by liberal leader Jane Hamsher:
It is unquestionable that the Tea Party moved the entire debt ceiling deal to the right. How did they do it? By taking out the people who failed them. Arlen Specter. Charlie Crist. Lincoln Chaffee. The people they felt betrayed their principles. Even if you don’t agree with those principles, their consistent adherence to them got results.
Whenever the talk of a primary comes up, I always ask “who is going to do this?” The answer is always someone like Bernie Sanders or Jan Schakowsky, the same people whose job it is to put the Good Liberal Housekeeping Seal of Approval on whatever piece of neoliberal sh*t the White House cooks up to please the bond vigilantes. The people who suddenly become okay with war when the White House says so, who shake their fists in the air with outrage right before they fold, the people you can count on to always be there when there’s nothing they can do…and are nowhere to be found when they can.
