Buttigieg once again hits it out of the park on Fox News, this time talking about Mitch McConnell

first_imgOn the subject of the Senate, Wallace asked if the majority leader is Mitch McConnell, won’t that hurt some of the “boldest” parts of Biden’s election promises? Buttigieg first stressed that Georgia’s runoff Senate races are likely to be extremely competitive, and if Democrats don’t win, McConnell’s caucus will have a decision to make. – Advertisement – “Is his purpose in Washington to defy the American people? Who, along with the president and the House of Representatives, will believe in expanding, not taking away health care, ensuring that the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes instead of slashing their taxes, no matter what, raising wages, treating climate change as real?” Basically, Buttigieg posited, does McConnell want to move forward with progress or stop progress?Perhaps the biggest takeaway? Just how very important the Georgia Senate special election really is. The double runoff will be held on Jan. 5, 2021.  The Georgia run-off is January 5th. Request an absentee ballot by Nov. 18. Early in-person voting starts Dec. 14. And REGISTER TO VOTE here by Dec. 7. And give $3 right now to rip the Senate majority from Mitch McConnell’s cold dead hands. Here’s that clip.x As my colleague, Hunter, noted, the Trump administration is not expected to make any major moves when it comes to handling the pandemic before Donald Trump leaves office in January. On the other hand, as we count down the days until he takes office, Biden is likely to urge the American people to listen to health and science expert recommendations (what a breath of fresh air, eh?), including wearing face masks and practicing social distancing amid a literal global pandemic. Wallace opens the dialogue by saying that Biden claimed the American people gave him a “‘mandate for action.’” Wallace then referenced the House’s slimmer majority and what he describes as the “likelihood” of a Republican-controlled Senate. Wallace asked Buttigieg, “The question is: What mandate?”- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement – Buttigieg’s answer is nothing short of refreshing. “Well, I think he has a mandate to deliver on the winning campaign agenda that the Biden-Harris ticket offered the country. This not only earned us the support of the majority of Americans who voted for him to be the next president, but also, we should remember that those who supported him, and a remarkable number of President Trump supporters support the agenda that Joe Biden is going to lead our country forward with.In other words, the idea of getting serious on COVID and having a science-led approach, which he’s already underway on. The idea of raising wages and protecting workers. And making sure corporations and the wealthy pay their fair share in taxes. Taking climate seriously. Doing something about racial justice. As we look forward, whether we have a divided government or not, I know this. What Joe Biden wants for the country is what most Americans believe is right for this country. And that, I think, is where the real propulsion of his administration will be. Just as it’s been the propulsion of this campaign and led to this win.”- Advertisement –last_img read more

Van Persie: Missing Europe can help Arteta

first_img Loading… “From one point of view you can say that it’s maybe better for Mikel to have extra training sessions to work on the tactics, to work on the fitness, to go another level up which is needed to actually compete at the highest level against the bigger teams. read also:Arteta challenges Arsenal to live up to their FA Cup history “So if you ask me, I would say that it’s better not to qualify for the Europa League and get those extra sessions in. “Then hopefully go another level up and hopefully by the end of next year or the season after they can really compete with the biggest teams.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Former Arsenal captain Robin van Persie says missing Europa League qualification can work in the club’s favour. Arsenal are 10th in the Premier League table with just two games of the campaign remaining. Champions League qualification has gone and manager Mikel Arteta now must hope for the Europa League by either sneaking into seventh spot in the table or winning the FA Cup. But Van Persie told BT Sport: “You can look at it from two ways really. “Arsenal doesn’t really want to be in the Europa League, they want to be in the Champions League.
