“It’s all rigged. The whole conversation is rigged,” he said. “The fact that we don’t get to a discussion before the break about what we’re going to do in the lame duck. It’s just rigged.”Bennet Chief of Staff Guy Cecil stood by the remarks.
“It’s something he’s been talking about from day one,” Cecil told the DC. “The whole process being rigged against having a real conversation about tax cuts, the estate tax and the defense authorization. We’re not having a lot of those conversations. It’s just a symptom of Washington being broken.”
According to an article posted November 30th on The Blaze, MSNBC‘s Kelly O’Donnell reached out to the Bennet camp for a comment and aid Adam Bozzi echoed the statement made by Cecil.
For almost two years, he [Bennet] has talked about needing to fix a broken Washington. We can’t move forward on major issues facing our country because of a broken system that is rigged to prevent progress. We are now in the second week of this session and haven’t begun debating Defense Authorization or tax cuts that will expire at the end of the year. Colorado and the rest of our country deserve better which is why he has proposed overhauling the way Washington works, including filibuster and lobbying reforms.In the world of cable news, Fox News Channel opinion show host Glenn Beck tonight discussed the "Red Pill, Blue Pill" scene from The Matrix, and how be believes it relates to the current state of affairs in The United States of America.
Beck also talked about how throughout history the political left has made wonderful use of the thesaurus, and that if the progs were not so good at changing the name of their agenda we would be hearing today that China's currently re-branded version of National Socialism is being called the political and social model of the future.
