Why Are They Afraid of a Living Wage, Clean Air, and Free Speech?

Well, the Republicans have launched their long-planned attack on the Representatives who will be Committee Chairs when we take back Congress. It will get nastier than this–the WSJ hides, at least, the degree to which this fear campaign depends on race-baiting and gay-baiting. But let’s look at some of the things they fear:

Energyand Commerce would return to the untender mercies of John Dingell, thelongest-serving Member first elected in 1955, who was a selectivescourge of business when he ran the committee before 1994. The MichiganCongressman would do his best to provide taxpayer help to GM and Ford.But telecom companies would probably get more regulation in the form ofNet neutrality rules, and a windfall profits tax on oil would be a realpossibility.

Hmm. Provide help to GM and Ford? Even Republican candidate for governor in MI, Dick "Amway" DeVos, is trying to force Bush to help out the automobile companies. Not a bad idea, you know, to try to preserve hundreds of thousands of middle class jobs.

But look what they don’t mention about John Dingell’s legacy. Dingell is known for several things–the Clean Air Act, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, the Medicare Program that works (unlike the  donut hole monstrosity invented by Bush’s donors)–all programs with solid support around the country.

And they’ve thrown in Net Neutrality, pretending that Dingell’s support for Net Neutrality, which simply preserves the state of Free Speech on the Internet, is something to be feared. Why is the WSJ, a media outlet, campaigning against Free Speech. (Hint–the dead tree media aren’t doing so well with real competition. I guess the WSJ’s support for competition only extends to other publicly traded companies?) So just with John Dingell, the WSJ wants you to be afraid of Clean Air, adequate medical care for children and seniors, and Free Speech. Whew, I’m quivering from fear.

    Why is the WSJ afraid of America’s greatness?

    Because an educated, healthy, wealthy poplace is much more difficult to control. We’re no longer citizens, but only so many pockets to be picked…

    I thought the DOJ Plame investigation banned most republicans for five years from Committees………………………

    You are intrepid. I stopped reading the WSJ editorial page more than 20 years ago. In fact, probably only a few weeks after I started reading it. Smug, vicious hacks, full of bile.

    At least, they used to be. I haven’t looked lately.

    Anyway, rest easy. This campaign by repubs is only good — maybe — for stirring up the base and bringing in a few dollars. Nobody else is going to worry about committee chairmanships.

    By the way, I am sure Big John will do something for car companies, if he can. But my question is this — what do they need?

    Maybe they could start making subway cars. Hopefully, that will become a growth industry.

    Oh, I’ve been keeping my out for the this campaign. They’re going to race-bait and gay-bait with it in the furthest reaches of the VRWC. And they’re going to try to scare good moderates away from supporting candidates in close districts, to prevent us from picking up the house.

    I just think we ought to use that. Our returning chairs look a damn site better than the corrupt weasels they’ve got running committees. And they got things done.

  5. jwp says:

    I am sure you are right; they would love to make an issue of Afro-American committee chairman.

    But that is too subtle.

    They will have to pound the table against the throngs of illegal immigrants to get much traction on race. And they will.

    But my guess is that the election will be about Iraq/Iran/terrorists.

    Dems have to be strong, and look strong.

    let’s hope

    These are the people who wanted to impeach Clinton. They are for unrestricted business, really big business such as the oil companies and the so-called â€defense†contractors. They want no government interference and, if that results in chaos or destruction of our liberties or the demise of the earth as we know it because of global warming, too bad. They are very old fashioned. Dow Jones has been having some financial problems lately; perhaps it’s because they are so out of step with the rest of the world and they run an old fashioned enterprise while the world around them has changed. They believe in a â€free marketâ€, even if that means one or two major oil companies dominating our economy; no taxes, even if it means immense debt and ultimate devaluation of our country’s net worth as we issue bonds. Truth to tell, those who write such drivel are probably like the so-called â€liberal†journalists and are their real life counterparts; they have few personal assets, think in their heads that they’re like the owners of their enterprise, but in reality have nothing except their wages and debts and therefore have no connection to the philosophies they write about. Those people who are angry can latch on to the tone and topics of the WSJ editorials, just as they latch on to the Limbaugh’s of the world, as an outlet for their frustration and anger. If one person were to symbolize the WSJ editorial stance, it is Cheney.

    This is like the progressive side wailing about potential fascist judges — just noise to the few among our citizens who have not already settled into their opinions. Most Americans don’t know that Congress has committees.
