    How Democrats Really Act

    Feel free to use this wherever you want.

    There is a lot of discussion right now that the Democrats, if they held the WH and Senate, would wait till after the election to nominate and confirm a Supreme Court Justice. Well, we have a test case we can look at to see what they would actually do so we can determine if they are telling the truth. The test case is the passage of the Affordable Care Act back in 2010.

    As it came near for the final vote on the ACA, Senator Kennedy from Massachusetts was diagnosed with advanced cancer which removed him from deliberations and voting. After his death Massachusetts held a special election to fill Senator Kennedy’s seat. Scott Brown, a Republican, ran pretty much a single issue campaign, elect me and I will vote against the ACA. He won the race by 5% and was the first Republican Senator elected by Massachusetts in almost 40 years. (And we know that the only reason he was elected was his opposition to the ACA because in 2012, when he ran for re-election, he lost to Senator Warren.)

    Did Senator Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, and Speaker Pelosi, follow established precedent and allow the will of the people to be known after they had lost an election? No, they then took legally difficult and highly questionable actions in order to pass the ACA before Senator Brown could be seated to vote against it. It is important to not forget what the Democrats have done in the past when looking at how they say they will act in the future. When the Democrats say they would wait, or that we should wait, remember what they did when they were asked to wait.

    Yep. The Republicans have traditionally been very spineless while the Craps have been ruthless. Finally in the last 8-10 years they have been growing a small but significant spine to play the same way the Craps have all along. It's refreshing IMO to see them not bending over and taking it in the ass as much.

    Yeah it's not like the bastards don't yell at each other all day in congress for the cameras then go to the same brothel later that day or anything.

    There is a difference between ruthless and unscrupulous. I would put a lot of Democrat tactics into the second category, helped along by the main stream media approval, bias and unscrupulous new reporting as well.

    Looks like they're trying this again
    Nancy must have found the old arrow in her quiver

    Tax bombshell reveals Trump's image is a sham
    https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/28/polit...ate/index.html

    The publication of the deeply reported article, based on more than two decades of his tax information obtained by The Times, comes just two days before the first presidential debate and 37 days before an election in which he is trailing Democrat Joe Biden. It poses a grave challenge to a presidency that we now know Trump may need to preserve to outrun creditors with hundreds of millions of dollars in loans soon coming due.

    It worked with Romney, why not try again. No one remembers or cares that it was all a lie, just that he cheated on his taxes and didn't get elected because of it.

    Sure, why not. Russia was a hoax, so why not make up a phony tax form and with the news media believing anything that the democrats publish, this must be real and Trump needs to go.

    Oh wait, isn't publishing someone else's taxes illegal? I guess if it is fake, it is legal to publish.
