Personal take away from attending the first in-person town hall of Rep. Anthony Brindisi
Minus a few technical glitches, and mysterious hints of conflict with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the first town hall of Rep. Anthony Brindisi was largely uneventful.
Senate Miniority Leader Schumer appeared in Binghamton NY to make big promises – that he knew weren’t accurate. He forbade talk about Govt Shutdown though.
Making the whole reason and nature of the Government shutdown understandable to even the least politically aware in the public.
The payoff for the 2018 mid-term elections has begun as the Government Shutdown continues. Gov. Cuomo is dragging NYS to become the Progressive capital of the nation. But what are some doing about 2020?
Highlights from Public Forum at SUNY Broome campus, identifying priorities for elected officials from the public. Also a brief discussion on the many ways that the Democrat driven government shutdown will affect students, the community, and nation in coming days.
Reaction to Government shutdown by Democrat leadership in effort to reward 800,000 remorseless criminals and punish 327 million American citizens.
Candidate Anthony Brindisi reiterates the threat of shutting down the Government – with a promise to harm the elderly, veterans and our military – unless criminals are rewarded like he wants. This is the pitch to gain votes. Not very attractive when you strip away the emotional shield and evaluate exactly what he said
At every turn the public has been failed. From the Executive Branch and the Legislative. From politicians at various levels. From mismanagement and fiscal irresponsibility. From abuse and overreach of powers. From limits and restrictions of freedom.
IF, and only if, Republicans have taken this hard stance to represent the public and protect the freedoms they swore an oath to defend, then the Government shutdown is worth it. Anything less is just political grandstanding, and an attempt to ward off election challenges from the Right and the Left.
