    House Democrats Unveil Tepid, Meaningless Slogan for 2018 Midterms

    House Democrats Unveil Tepid, Meaningless Slogan for 2018 Midterms

    “I don’t think any of us are claiming this is poetic or this is the end-all-be-all of messaging”

    You may think House Democrats have no message other than the fact that they’re against Trump, or that they want to roll back the tax cuts, but you’d be wrong. They recently announced their new slogan and it’s a real snoozer.

    Heather Caygle reports at Politico:

    House Dems unveil new midterm campaign slogan

    House Democrats have finalized their campaign slogan heading into the last months before the midterm election: “For the People.”

    The new motto, which Democratic leaders unveiled in a private meeting with members Wednesday morning, is meant to put a finer point on the broad economic-based messaging Democrats have been pushing with mixed success since last summer. That initial message — a “Better Deal” — has largely failed to break through with voters and has been openly mocked by some Democratic lawmakers.

    House Democrats plan to begin working “For the People” into their statements and press conferences, with a focus on three key areas: addressing health care and prescription drug costs; increasing wages through infrastructure and public works projects; and highlighting Republican corruption in Washington.

    They’re super confident in this message, too:

    “I don’t think any of us are claiming this is poetic or this is the end-all-be-all of messaging,” Bustos said. “It’s just a way, in a quick way, to put together the answer to what we stand for.”

    Charles C.W. Cooke of National Review has spotted one little problem with the new slogan:

    Here’s a question. What do House Democrats want for the people? Answer: Medicare.

    Kimberly Leonard reports at the Washington Examiner:

    House Democrats to form ‘Medicare for All’ Caucus

    Roughly a third of House Democrats are forming a new caucus that will push for healthcare legislation to roll all U.S residents into the Medicare program.

    The “Medicare for All” Caucus of 60 founding members will be announced Thursday morning and co-chaired by Democratic Reps. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, Keith Ellison of Minnesota, and Debbie Dingell of Michigan.

    Ellison, who is also deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is the lead House Democrat behind the Expanded and Improved Medicare For All Act, which has the support of more than 120 of 193 Democrats in the House.

    Millions of Americans will respond this fall by saying, “No thanks.”

    “For the People” = “For the DemoncRATs.” No thank you very much.

    We need to let the slide what began on Jan. 20, 2009 as the loss of their power continue. When they have the power, they do NOTHING good for We the People, no matter their slogan being “Hope and Change”, “Yes We Can”, or “Transforming America.” It’s the results that matter and watching “What they do” instead of “What they say” is the smart analysis to use in deciding who to elect.


    In other news, unemployment applications are the lowest that they’ve been since 1969 and nothing like that happened while Barack Obama and his demoncRATs held the power. It seems smart to give more power to what has been working since Jan 20 2017, i.e., Republicans and President Donal Trump, especailly after realizing THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF RUSSIAN COLLUSION, IMPROPRIETY, OR ANYTHING ELSE TO WARRANT AN IMPEACHMENT COUP D’ETAT. DemoncRATs need to get over their butthurt election loss and seek professional help for their “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

    I wonder if John Morgan of Morgan & Morgan suggested that slogan to build awareness of it and enhance his ambulance chasing.

    Or if he is unhappy the DNC-CPUSA is using it and diluting it.

    The DNC-CPUSA forgot to say whether it is available 24/7/365 like John Morgan.

    Slogan should be “LYING SOB’s”
