Still no word from Carney’s office on whether Rep. Carney is going to support the President in the upcoming fight over making the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes.
I sent this email on Monday:
Congratulations on Representative Carney’s re-election. Do you have a moment to chat about Mr. Carney’s take on the upcoming fight with the intransigent GOP congress over middle class tax cuts, and tax increases for the wealthiest Americans?
Your radio ads during the campaign telegraphed what some describe as an overweening desire to compromise with the GOP. We at DelawareLiberal.net hope that this desire to compromise does not run counter to supporting the President and faithfully representing the Democrats that returned him to office.
An in person meeting with some bloggers to discuss this and other issues that Representative Carney thinks will be important during this term office would be great.
Thanks for considering it,
I guess he is keeping his powder dry in the tradition of Tom Carper and his famously dry power. And why shouldn’t he? When you look at the winning margins for Corporatist Democrats in Delaware, and you think that the best the GOP can do is Kevin Wade and Tom Kovach, what possible motivation could Carper and Carney have for being the least bit progressive or populist?
The answer is they have no motivation what-so-ever. They both have a lifetime sinecure by just kicking back and making nice with the worst elements in the GOP.
