After watching the Affordable Care Act repealed for the American Health Care Act, which will literally cost thousands of lives, I cannot fathom how the Independent Democratic Caucus and State Senator Simcha Felder do not see the necessity to join forces and conference with State Senate Democrats to fight this abomination of an administration.
Their willingness to give a majority seat to an administration with such a blatantly misogynist, racist, xenophobic agenda shows an astonishing lack of moral compass.
They hide behind State Senate procedure and blame-shift when asked why progressive legislation is stalled, or why they vote down progressive budget amendments, or why certain progressive legislation gets buried in committee.
The bottom line is the Independent Democratic Committee and Senator Felder have given the majority seat and with it the power of the New York State Senate to the most abhorrent GOP in the history of this country, and they should all be voted out in a Democratic Primary.
Every single one of them.
