In Ramirez’s world, Republicans offering corporate welfare and tax giveaways to the few richest elites who already have the most, and making it easier for corporations to run roughshod over the rights of workers, consumers and our shared environment is not pandering.
But having the NERVE to think that every day Americans don’t deserve access to health care, education, economic security and a decent, living wage — things that EVERY OTHER INDUSTRIAL NATION provides — is pandering?
Why does Ramirez think Americans are so much less capable or deserving than the rest of the industrial world.
Republicans whine, whine, whine if someone isn’t loud enough in proclaiming “American exceptionalism,” but the only way in which Republicans actually want to make America “exceptional” is that we are the only ones they think are not worthy of or capable of things others seem quite capable of.
[And note, every proposal by Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren comes complete with viable funding mechanisms, unlike the corporate welfare and tax giveaways from Republicans that just blow up the deficit.]
