“Joe Manchin Mocked Bernie’s $15 Minimum Wage Bill at Lobbyist Event” [Jacobin]. Of course Manchin, but also this: “[Sean] Kennedy, who previously served in the Obama White House as a special assistant to the president for legislative affairs, has become the public face of corporate opposition to a $15 minimum wage.” • Thanks, Obama!
This is why the left is terrible. Blaming Obama for Bernie’s fecklessness? What’s next? Calling Jimmy Dore a troll?
At least people like Manchin and Obama know what they want and aren’t afraid to fight for it. The left is like the alcoholic family that can’t stop making excuses for Dad’s three-martini lunch.
