March 11 Open Thread: Some Delaware Democrats Don’t Like Democracy

Filed in Delaware, National by on March 11, 2018

The News Journal’s Scott Goss looked at how how DEDO’s replacement, the Delaware Prosperity Partnership, operates, and found there’s a reason their board meetings aren’t open to the public: They don’t really have any, at least not with a quorum. Decisions, including a grant that represents a significant chunk of this year’s funding pool, are being made by just a few people. John Carney, who co-chairs the Delaware Prosperity Partnership, wouldn’t comment for the article. These are your Democrats, Delaware.

Trump went to western Pennsylvania yesterday for an airplane-hangar rally, where he proved he really is president of Stupid America whose entire shtick is stand-up comedy for people who find Larry the Cable Guy too subtle. He talked about his steel tariffs even as they’re being shot full of holes, demonstrating that it’s just a ploy to try to win this one insignificant election (insignificant because as soon as the election is over, the district disappears).

Of all the wingnuts in Trump’s cabinet, EPA chief Scott Pruitt appears to be the wingnuttiest. Do you think Rex Tillerson “believes in” global warming? Get real. Exxon scientists were among the first to notice it. But Pruitt, like a lot of Republican politicians, apparently really thinks it’s a hoax, because he wanted to stage a debate about climate science. John Kelly apparently stopped him; it’s unknown if Pruitt realizes how close he came to disaster.

Add anything significant you find among the clickbait.

    Carney thinks he’s Carper’s replacement in the senate, I think we need to avoid that at all costs, start searching for the eject button now.

  3. SussexWatcher says:

    LBR is going to the Senate before Carney.

    Republicans have further watered down the consumer protections in the Wall street reform rollback bill that is working its way through the Senate. Oh, and a provision has been added explicitly to benefit Equifax. (Yes, you read that right–Equifax)

    This is on top of the bill already making it easier to discriminate against people of color on mortgages, and increasing the chances of taxpayers bailing out failed banks.

    It is infuriating that 17 Democrats voted to advance this bill, including one or both of your U.S. senators from Delaware. Before the next procedural vote on the bill at 5:30 PM eastern tonight, we need you to call them and urge them to change course.

    Call Senator Christopher A. Coons at (202) 224-5042 and Senator Thomas R. Carper at (202) 224-2441. Tell them you oppose any weakening of Wall Street regulations.

    Why is it that every democrat we send to Congress ends up a republican? Perhaps its because they were republicans all along and knew they had a better chance winning if they ran as democrats? Call em out and vote em out. Three blind mice, Coons, Carper, Carney.
