Dems Settle On New Slogan: “A Better Deal” Or Something

Over the previous eight years, Democrats controlled the House for Mr. Obama’s first two years, and squandered that control with nutty big government citizen controlling legislation. They held the Senate till the 2014 elections. They held the White House for those eight years, obviously. Their policies are what led to the election of Donald Trump. Now, they want to trot out their new slogan

(The Hill) Democrats in both chambers will gather in rural Virginia on Monday to unveil a new national messaging campaign aimed at easing the economic strain on working-class Americans –– and propelling their party back to power in order to check an unpopular president in Donald Trump.

Behind Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the Democrats are hoping their latest messaging pitch will prove an effective contrast to the Republicans’ policy agenda and pull voters to their side in next year’s midterm elections.

Trump soared to power last year on a simple promise to “make America great again,” and the Democrats have pulled a page from that strategy with a no-frills slogan vowing to provide “a better deal” for a middle class that’s struggled to keep pace with globalization and the march of technology. Like Trump’s campaign, the Democrats’ message suggests both that the status quo is failing working Americans and that the other party is to blame.

The policies of the Democrats tend to hurt the middle class, while keeping the lower income class down and under the thumb/beholden to Government, while at the same time enriching the rich, despite their talking points. No class did better under Mr. Obama than The Rich.

In its first phase, released Monday morning, the Democrats’ campaign focuses on three broad areas: creating new jobs; lowering prescription drug costs; and restraining the power of corporations. Notably absent from the agenda are the social issues –– things like reproductive rights, immigration reform and gun control –– that have, at times, defined the party.

Notably absent is reducing the power of Government over the lives of citizens, but, then, that’s what the Democrats stand for. But, don’t worry, gun control/confiscation, abortion, etc., will soon rear their heads.

“What motivates us is that the costs of living keep rising, but families feel their incomes and wages aren’t keeping up,” Pelosi wrote in a Washington Post op-ed published Sunday evening.

Who was president the last eight years? Whose policies tend to put a big burden on the middle class? Whose policies support illegal aliens and foreign workers over U.S. citizens?

“Special interests are given special treatment, while hard-working Americans are ignored.”

You mean like Planned Parenthood, Hollywood, unions, and others? Or is she referring to all the special interests which received waivers from having to participate in Obamacare?

The venue –– a town park in rural Berryville, Va., roughly 60 miles northwest of Washington –– is no accident. The region has long been controlled by the Republicans, but Clinton won the district last year by a 10-point margin and GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock, the current House member, is near the top of the Democrats’ target list in 2018.

That’s as far as they can make it when it comes to “rural”, 60 miles, and still in the I-66-81-70 triangle. The devil’s in the details for the slogan, and this is about Progressive populism, and would better as “A Better Deal For Government.”

Meanwhile, Democrats are pushing to hook up non-citizens

    Uh huh, honey.

    tRump is so bad, even the KKK misses President Obama!

    The Democrats are trying to reclaim he mantle of being the party of working people, but they cannot be the party of working people and non-working people at the same time: working people know that the hands of the welfare leeches are in their pockets, put there by the federal government, and that is the Democratic Party which wants to keep those hands there.

    In 2016, Hillary Clinton promised job retraining for 50-year-old coal miners put out of work, while Donald Trump promised to bring back coal mining jobs. Mrs Clinton’s promise was for retraining for jobs the miners knew they’d never see, while Mr Trump’s promise, which mostly can’t be kept, offered them at least a slight hope. The left never recognized that what working men who have lost heir jobs want isn’t a welfare system to take care of them, but jobs so that they can take care of themselves.

    The Democrats were great at quoting economic statistics, but they simply couldn’t see that this was as much a cultural divide as it is an economic one. Telling the working class that the Dow was near record highs might have been true, but it was virtually meaningless to that audience.

      dana,

      So you’re saying the working stiffs fell for tRump’s lies. Shame on them. Shame on tRump. They’re learning what the GOP is all about now. Ask the Carrier workers.

      Our economy has been going downhill since the daze of Reagan. The high dollar, penurious fiscal policy, tight monetary policy, tax shifting to the poor, workers in direct competition with foreigners etc…

      A Manhattan effort on infrastructure and renewable energy would get the economy moving. But the GOP won’t go for it. They prefer to keep their voters poor and afraid of Blacks, Mexicans and Muslims.

        More that they didn’t fall for Hillary Clinton’s bovine feces.

        The high dollar, penurious fiscal policy, tight monetary policy, tax shifting to the poor, workers in direct competition with foreigners etc…

        Penurious fiscal policy? We ran four straight trillion dollar deficits under Barack Hussein Obama, and the working class still felt poor enough off to reject Hillary Clinton. Tax shifting to the poor? Almost half of American workers pay no federal income tax. The top 1% of earners paid 45.7% of all income taxes in 2014, while bottom 60% will pay less than 2%. Workers in direct competition with foreigners? That sounds like a Trump campaign line, but you are the one supporting direct competition, by supporting illegal immigration!

        • Jeffery says:

          And I left out conservative union busting.

          We should have spent twice as much following the Republican 2007 meltdown.

          Federal income tax is only one of the taxes. Don’t forget payroll taxes, state and local taxes.

          Of course our workers have been put into direct competition with 100s of millions workers in China and India. The few million immigrant workers here are a drop in the bucket. Why does tRump import foreign workers for his clubs? Do they work cheaper?

    We’re the party that gave you Obamacare.
    Y’all should be grateful.
