The Hyde amendment is meaningless now with the ACA and the Medicaid expansion.

This is especially true if there is a public option. Insurance wraps will cover abortion. Why risk Pennsylvania which is very conservative in terms of abortion? This will also allow pro-life indies and pubs to vote for us...I was lectured about Hugh Mello by Sanders supporters. He had sponsored anti-choice legislation...yet was supported by progressives.

"Joe Biden's Bet That 2016 Didn't Change Everything" We still need the blue wall. How we win did not

change. Nor did we veer left as the media and some Democrats insisted. The midterms showed a different reality. 2016 was an aberration with a perfect storm of trouble that hit us. Hillary took criticism from the left and the right when that happens, we lose. Comey tipped the scale with both of his unprofessional statements, we had gerrymandering and voter suppression and of course the Russians. This was an aberration and we still need the same state we always did to win. Biden can win those states. In 2018, the house flipped because of moderate Democrats. Thus there is no leftward movement in this party or this country. We are a center left country and a big tent party.

"PHILADELPHIA—If the new rules of politics post-2016 were to hold up, the official launch rally Joe Biden held here on Saturday would mean that he is in trouble: The crowd wasn’t huge, was largely white and older, and, for the most part, only really got into it when he mentioned Barack Obama or Donald Trump.

Yet Biden’s high-and-getting-higher poll numbers, the early fund-raising success that has surprised even his own aides, and the enthusiastic responses I heard from supporters who came out on a hot afternoon to see him don’t show a candidate in much trouble at all. Biden’s campaign is a bet: that in the four years since Trump launched his campaign, the country hasn’t changed, the Democratic Party hasn’t changed, and politics hasn’t changed."


Do you believe elections have been changed forever because of 2016?

'Everything We Know About the Joe Biden-Ukraine Controversy.' Biden is exonerated completely (me)

'...Allies of President Trump, led by lawyer Rudy Giuliani, have been promoting the story in an attempt to cast Biden as corrupt. Last week, Giuliani called for Biden to be “investigated quickly and expeditiously.”

But there’s a problem with the suggestion that Biden was trying to help his son. The investigation into Burisma was dead long before Biden started his campaign to oust Shokin, Vitaliy Kasko, a former Ukrainian official who worked under Shokin, told Bloomberg...'

Duer's promoting this story are doing President Trump's and Gouliani's dirty work. When you are siding with Donnie the terrible, you should just stop.


Biden's rise in 2020 race catches Trump's eye, unnerves his allies.

'...Some Trump advisers see the former vice president, with his mainstream blue-collar appeal, as a tough opponent in the three states that carried Trump to his improbable victory in 2016 - Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania...'

Losing any of those states in 2020 would make Trump’s path to re-election more problematic.

Problematic? The map clearly shows Biden beats Trump should he lose the above rustbelt states. I believe Biden has the best chance to get Trump out of the White House.


If we rebuild the blue wall, the Republicans won't win the presidency in 20 or for years.

We will stop them and move the country left. Below is the 2016 presidential electoral college map showing what would have happened with a win in WI, PA and MI. I believe Biden can do this. Fired up and ready to go. But no matter who the candidate is victory is in the rustbelt.


Fundraising closes for the month today. I donated. If you can donate some $$ to Biden!

Fired up and ready to go. for some who said they could not donate but wanted to...mine was in your honor. I donated from an email but I won't do that again since we can do it right here.

Two maps showing what happens if we take WI, MI and PA. Go to the website make your own maps.

Biden is best equipped to rebuild the blue wall. He can appeal to those voters both in terms of moderation and geography. Also next time you are hating on Manchin or other conservadem Senators...look at the map and consider how limited our options are in holding a majority in the Senate without which we will get no judges and no policy.


The first map shows no path for an electoral college win for Trump when we win WI,MI and PA


The second map shows what happens when we don't win WI, MI and PA.


Watching MSNBC Chris Matthews Biden story. Anyone else?

Biden is a great man and will make a great president. I had no idea how hard it was to get the violence against women act. Passed. His compassion shines through.

For those who have questions about VP Biden and important issues...

'On Monday, January 21, 2019, Vice President Biden, the Chair of the Biden Institute at the University of Delaware, delivered remarks and was honored with the Lifetime of Excellence in Public Service Award at the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day breakfast hosted by Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network. His remarks were focused on the importance of protecting civil rights, be it through protesting racism perpetuated by the alt-right or protecting voting rights from voter suppression. Read Vice President Biden's full remarks here.'


Below is a download of the remarks so dont click on it if this is objectionable to you.


President Obama sent message...best decision I made selecting Joe Biden

as VP...not endorsement but message of support. Thanks Obama!!!
