Debbie Wasserman Shultz - a little more information

I remember well, how when Hillary Clinton was a senator she and Pelosi would repeatedly give lip service to the Dems then cave to the Republicans and vote their way. What I didn't know was Debbie Wasserman Shultz was in that shite too. This one came after Hillary left the Senate:

"Today, the House passed the 2014 Farm Bill 251 to 166.

162 Republicans voted for it. 63 voted against it.

103 Democrats voted against it. 89 voted for it.

The Farm Bill contains $8.7 billion in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps. This translates to a $90 per month cut to beneficiaries. This cut follows November's $5 billion cut from the program, the "hunger cliff" that the Democrats themselves created.

The deal also restricts the USDA from "advertising the SNAP program through , radio and billboard advertisements."

Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz all voted for the bill.

1. Evens out in the wash...

It was a flawed bill...

We needed to vote for it to vote against it...

How 'bout them tax cuts?

2. Now, that's what I call "leadership".

Vote for us. We're not as bad as the Republicans!

Except when we are.

3. DWS is a repub

Amazing to me how so many right leaning dems are repubs in my view. We are changing. How long does it take for a party to flip? Maybe 150 years? More or less? I have felt things sliding under me more rapidly the last ten years.

5. They are! Most democrats don't care or don't want to admit they're in a quasi-republican party. n/t

6. Yep, exactly!!! This party has changed so much I switched to Unaffiliated for my voter

registration. I just do not agree with DNC/DLC/DWS/HRC. The first president I voted for was JFK. What a change in the democratic party since then.

8. And - Patrick Murphy (Fl-DINO) - GOP until 2012, switched only to run against another Republican,

 

rich - so Hillary and DWS LOVE him, even though he voted yes for creating the Benghazi panel.

This is why I will stay registered until the end of August this year, if Hillary is the nominee - I will be voting for Alan Grayson, and not Murphy, in the primary to be held then.

To name just a few - Bill Nelson, Patrick Murphy, Gwen Graham, DWS, Corinne Brown, and more on that list - all Florida DINOs. Will NOT vote for or support them. I am done.

9. Thanks for that list. I will be done after the primaries in June.

 

I'm staying in the hope of Sanders, meager as it is.

10. Debbie's Record ...

 

Lost the House, a bunch of Senate seats, 12 Governorships and over 900 state seats while Chair of the DNC
Supported Republicans over Democrats in two Florida districts
Conceded entire districts to the Louis Gohmerts and Joni Ernsts of this world by abandoning the 50-state strategy
Supported a Republican retread for the Florida Democratic Party Gubernatorial candidate (he lost to Rick Scott, again)
Undermined President Obama's treaty with Iran
Shilled for the private prison industry
Shilled for the booze industry
Shilled for the payday loan industry
Blamed the voters for her failures








Yet she still has her job and was recently endorsed by the President!
