Senator Tim Kaine used some factually false statements from McConnell to drive the Democratic message every American will want and understand. But there is much more!
Senator Tim Kane gets the Democratic message right
MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin played a statement from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell where he made various hypocritical, lying, and misleading claims. One would hope more journalists would correct in real-time.
He said that we have a 50/50 Senate. That is numerically true. However, the fact is that the 50 Democratic Senators represent many more Americans than does the 50 Republican Senators. That Montana and California have the same number of Senators is a very undemocratic flaw in our design. Note as well that gerrymandering has given Republicans overrepresentation in the House of Representatives as well.
McConnell claims that Democrats do not have a mandate for the policies that they are proposing. That is false. While Republican politicians balk at providing support for the poor and middle class, polls say Americans want Democratic Legislation, Progressive Legislation.
But Tim Kaine did not do what too often Democrats do when presented with a Republican or a Conservative attack. He did what so many of us have been begging Democrats to do. Lean into our message. And Tim Kaine did just that. After pointing out that the bill will help all Americans explaining in a form as easy as bread and butter, he leaned in.
“This will be to children what Social Security was to seniors and this is just one part of the bill,” Kaine said. “This is going to be enormously popular with Americans in every zip code in this country, Democrats, Republicans Independents. And I’m so excited to be on the budget committee.”
