I am on the Democratic Party email list. I just received a survey from Nancy Pelosi titled “📎 need input. NOT money.” The email states:
I’m coming to you one more time this week to make sure you have your voice heard.
BEFORE MIDNIGHT: Take my critical priorities survey before our new members head to their home districts. I can’t wait to share your thoughts with them. >>
I’ve been able to meet with all our new Democratic members of Congress.
They have inspired me so much, and I’m so ready to work with them to stop President Trump’s agenda and rescue President Obama’s legacy.
And I must be honest with you, in order to make that a reality, I need you with me.
Please, can I count on you to take 3O seconds and share your top priorities with me and all our new Democratic Congress members?
NOTE: While the title states that Nancy is not seeking money, the last question requires you to send money.
It appears from the email that Nancy Pelosi’s and the Democrat’s agenda is to “stop President Trump’s agenda and rescue President Obama’s legacy.”
Here are the “Critical Priorities”:
Which issues do you want our Democrats to know matter most to you right now? (Check all that apply)
- Restoring the Voting Rights Act and protecting voting rights
- Protecting DREAMers and immigrants
- Protecting Robert Mueller and his investigation
- Continued funding for Medicare and Social Security
- Protecting our environment and slowing climate change
- Health care coverage for pre-existing conditions
- Building on the progress of Obamacare
- Gun violence prevention
- A $15 minimum wage
- The economy
- LGBTQ rights
- Preserving President Obama’s Medicaid expansion
- Making tuition affordable for all
The only questions on the survey that are a priority with President Trump, and Republicans in the House, are funding Medicare and Social Security, Health care coverage for pre-existing conditions and the economy.
All the rest of the critical priorities are for narrow constituencies. It’s interesting that Nancy is still focused on former President Obama’s legacy.
Well, at least there are some things that Nancy is in sync with Republicans and the American people.
A good sign? Or a bad sign?
