Since the 70’s, the United States has elected two cruel US Presidents in Richard Nixon and Donald Trump, and two nice ones in Jimmy Carter and Joe Biden. Both Nixon and Trump got their way with Congress and both Carter and Biden failed to control Congress, which in effect proves that nice US Presidents end up last. It take compassionate toughness to preside over a country with such a wide array of different races, religions, and ideologies.
The fact that President Joe Biden has been unable to control two selfish Democratic Senators, one of whom is a rookie, demonstrates amply that the heart-fainted cannot run the White House. Ronald Reagan would have feasted on Kyrsten Sinema’s heart and liver, and so would have baby-faced Bill Clinton if she did not fall in line to vote for their agendas.
So would have Bernie Sanders if he was elected US President.
But Joe Biden is not made of the same cloth. His weakness, on public display big time, has dipped his ratings to a new low of 42%.
Ronald Reagan would have feasted on Kyrsten Sinema’s heart and liver, and so would have baby-faced Bill Clinton if she did not fall in line to vote for their agendas.
STOP NEGOTIATING AND START TWISTING ARMS
The President should stop negotiating with Sinema and Manchin and start twisting their arms. Corporate interests are buying them off from under his feet. He needs to re-instate the main elements of the Build Back Better legislation because it seems what he has done so far is not working. Witness his dipping numbers as evidence to this fact.
What is the definition of insanity? It’s repeating failures while expecting different outcomes. To try and negotiate with people the fossil fuel and Big Pharma have purchased already is the very definition of insanity. Any other lobbyist could buy them to vote against any element of the legislation that impacts their industry, which would water down the Bill to become a big failure.
Both Manchin and Sinema have already cut the Bill price tag by 50%, and it seems they are not done yet as an announcement of what survived is still missing. This could only mean both Senators are still carving away while the President negotiates helplessly to save his legacy.
It is time to twist their arms and put them both in their places Mr. President. As they make you look weak, Donald Trump and his wolves are circling. Neither Senator see the harm they are causing this country, not only because they are refusing to help the middle class regain some grounds they lost after some 50 years of Reagan policies that has almost decimated it out of existence, but because they are making Biden look weak, which invites Trump to run in 2024 and most likely win.
Kyrsten Sinema has become the lackey of Big Pharma in the Senate. The industry is riding her like a broken mare, and saddling her with more than she can carry.
SINEMA IS DRUNK ON POWER
An article by Je’han Jones of MSNBC spells out a fact that demonstrates that Kyrsten Sinema is living in an alternate reality, drunk on her own power and attention-grabbing headlines.
Sinema is not willing to let the US Government negotiate Medicare prices with Big Pharma. Je’han writes:
When 94% of your voters demand a policy direction, you don’t go against them. Like I said, drunk on power under the tutelage of a nice and weak President, and nice US Presidents end up last.
Kyrsten Sinema has become the lackey of Big Pharma in the Senate. The industry is riding her like a broken mare, and saddling her with more than she can carry. By the time 2024 comes around, her back would be broke, and Big Pharma would throw her over the cliff and start working on her replacement.
All so she can make a name for herself today. If she was smart, she would listen to her constituency.
