Dems Vow to Solve the Problems They Usually Ignore

Friday’s Democrat debate stage held contestants ready to solve yesterday’s problems.  A time-capsule of topics – reminding voters that Democrats haven’t accomplished much in the last 50 years. Childhood poverty, race relations, and healthcare — Debate 2020 highlights decades of Democrat failures. 

Campaigning on Yesterday’s Problems

For decades the Democrats have been vowing to solve childhood poverty, race relations, and healthcare. In 2020, they are still vowing to fix the problems.

Bernie Sanders said,

…we are going to create millions of jobs for low-income kids so they’re not hanging out on street corners ….We’re going to make sure that those kids stay in school or are able get a college education. So I think that when you give low-income kids, African-American, white, Latino kids, the opportunities to get their lives together, they are not going to end up in jail. They’re going to end up in the productive economy, which is where we want them.”

The above quote was from a 2016 primary debate. Four years ago!! What has he done between presidential primaries to fix these problems? According to his official senate website – nothing. He has not authored a single bill addressing this issue.

Then again, his ineptitude enacting legislation for what sounds suspiciously close to Communist “worker camps” for children is probably a good thing.

It’s Bad to Be Brown in Mayor Pete’s Town

Frontrunner Mayor Pete took a beating from moderator Linsey Davis. She asked,

Mayor Buttigieg, under your leadership as mayor, a black resident in South Bend, Indiana was four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than a white resident … And that disparity increased in South Bend after you took office. When talking about the problem in national terms, you’ve called it ‘evidence of systemic racism.’ But you were mayor for eight years, so weren’t you, in effect, the head of the system. and how do you explain that increase in black arrests under your leadership?” 

Mayor Pete’s non-answer took the prize for “most words used to impart least amount of information.”

That’s one of the reasons why I am calling for us as a country to take up reforms that end incarceration as a response to possession … And when we do it, do it retroactively with expungements to correct the harm done in so many cases of incarceration disproportionately of black and brown Americans where the incarceration did far more harm than the offense it was intended to deal with.”

Pete, Pete, Pete… the appropriate response when confronted with your “obviously racist” history as mayor is not words. It’s self-flagellation and a vow to hire a “racial equity” coach to eradicate every trace of your white-privilege. You may want to reconsider your answer. When “Lies When Lips Move” Liz calls you out on your non-answer, you got problems. This one ain’t going away. And frankly, you had eight years to implement your plan to expunge the records of Black and Brown Americans, why didn’t you do it then?

Give Us Your Healthcare! Again.

If there is one thing I can’t wrap my head around, it’s the Democrats desire to “fix healthcare!”, and my shock that people believe them. Didn’t they address this issue by pushing through the Affordable Healthcare Act? The bill famously known for coining Pelosi’s  “…we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it….

The cornerstone on the Obama legacy path is broken? Democrats finally accomplish something they promise for decades, and it sucks so badly that they need a re-do. One that effectively kills the competition. The Democrats Iowa kerfuffle is looking more like a feature and not a bug.

When asked the following question by the Kaiser Family Foundation, As you may know, a health reform bill was signed into law in 2010. Given what you know about the health reform law, do you have a generally favorable or generally unfavorable opinion of it?”, 53% of adults responded in the affirmative. Numbers further break out by race, age, and income.

While 53% isn’t a high number, it’s good enough for government work. So why are the Democrats entertaining the idea of Medicare for All? Is it because despite being the cornerstone of his legacy, Obama’s name isn’t enough to keep people happy with a key piece of Democrat legislation? 2019 enrollment is down by 10%. Reuters reports that,

decrease was due to increased employment, which typically means more people had employer-based health insurance, and that about 100,000 people with Obamacare insurance in Virginia became eligible for the expanded Medicaid program there.”

Let’s get this straight. People get jobs, and opt to exit the Obamacare plan. Is it related to the poll showing that 71% of Americans rate their private coverage as “excellent” or “good”?

Political Promises Made… Are Best Forgotten After the Election

If you open every election, I bet there will be a Democrat platform addressing the problems they are still vowing to solve in 2020.

    The thrust of questions thrown at the candidates seems to be, “What will you do?” Perhaps questions of the, “What have you done…or tried to do?” type would reveal more meaningful information about them.

    And frankly, you had eight years to implement your plan to expunge the records of Black and Brown Americans, why didn’t you do it then?
    Well…. no. State law prevents him from doing so (the State is sovereign, South Bend is not).
    One of the disadvantages of trying to use a mayorship as your “executive experience” when running for president.

    If you’re a Democrat, for certain.

  • Joe in PNG says:

    The typical excuse is that the Enlightened Policies & Programs of the Democratic Party would have brought us Utopia long ago, but those Evil Stupid Racist Reactionary Republicans keep messing things up!

    Which is handy- they always have an excuse for more money & power, or why this or that policy didn’t work.

  • Ferox says:

    What I would like “this is a racist society, top to bottom” Bernie to answer: is he planning to hand his millions over to some poor black people to atone for his skin privilege? And if he isn’t, why should anybody else listen to him at all?

    Rich white Bernie is planning to make middle-class white people in this country poor while he stays wealthy, because he says they are racist and he isn’t.

    FOAD, Commissar Bernie.

    So why do you oppose Trump, Bernie?

    I live in New Hampshire, and it’s crazy season up here for a few more days. Nonstop phone calls, campaign workers at our door, candidates tramping all over town, and nonstop BS.
    Buttigieg is looking good to a lot of NH Dems as is Amy Klobuchar, but unfortunately, Amy is sort of a lightweight, so I don’t see her making the cut.
    Bernie is singing his same old song as is Pocahontas with Biden babbling on too.
    I can’t wait for Wednesday to get here when this BS will once again end, and peach and quiet will reign in the Live Free or Die state.

  • JBM says:

    That $15 and hour minimum wage will certainly help create more jobs for those low-income kids with no skills and poor education.

  • Don says:

    Dumbascraps haven’t fixed a thing in many decades. rather they created more problems. One simple one is jobs. Obozo and crew killed many and Obozo even made the statement forget those jobs, they’re gone and now Butgig and crew are going to create more jobs???? Trump’s created more jobs than any set of Dumbascraps have in decades of their filth and lies whiel they continue to get rich off our dime and now they’re going to do more???

  • njc says:

    Fix problems they usually ignore? Don’t you mean “fix problems they created”?

  • Don says:

    They’re obviously speaking of all the problems they’ve caused over the last 60+ years. They created them yet we’re supposed to believe they can fix them. They really do think we’re that stupid.
