House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), still reeling from the electoral thrashing put on them by Donald Trump and the Republicans last November, announced a major charade this week. Their Democrat Party is, once again, attempting to reboot and re-brand itself into something it's not.
The party is adopting a new slogan for its policy props, "A Better Deal." Yes, it's a cheap knock-off of Franklin Roosevelt's 1933 "New Deal" slogan and is an updated do-over of FDR's failed socialist policies while cloaking them in the language of Donald Trump's middle class appeal.
Barack Obama used FDR's model to buy two presidential elections, so why not try it again? So what if the Democrats' last grand national experiment with centralized statist policies, the so-called "Great Society," was also an abysmal failure. All that's important to Pelosi, Schumer and the rest of their party is a return to power. And if they can fool enough people at the ballot box with false promises based on economic centralization and wealth redistribution, they'll accomplish their mission.
Of course, the best contemporary case study in the failure of Democrat regulatory schemes is the so-called "Affordable Care Act" — ObamaCare — or what's left of it today..
Fact is, the new and improved “Better Deal” will prove to be nothing more than all the previous Democrat’s socialist Raw Deals over the past century.
How do I know?
