Catherine Cortez Masto’s fake moderate schtick is not fooling anybody in Nevada. One look at her record makes it clear that Cortez Masto prefers Bernie Sanders’s reckless socialist agenda and far-Left efforts to abolish the filibuster over helping Nevada families, workers, and job creators. Don’t take it from us. Read what Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Victor Joecks has to say about Cortez Masto’s radical record.
If Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto has a moderate bone in her body, now would be an opportune time to demonstrate it […]
One would be coming out in opposition to Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending plan. That is a staggering amount, especially after the trillions spent over the past 18 months responding to the pandemic.
That is not a moderate bill, especially with inflation spiraling out of control. Wholesale prices jumped 8.3 percent year-over-year in August.
Even if she wants to spend that much, it would make sense to publicly oppose spending that much. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said recently he won’t support a bill that large, although he left himself some wiggle room. In a 50-50 Senate, he can stop the bill. If the bill is going to be pared back anyway, Cortez Masto might as well take the opportunity to tack to the middle.
Another way to show moderation would be to oppose Democrats’ attempts to eliminate the filibuster. The filibuster requires most bills to receive 60 votes in the Senate to advance. But in March, Cortez Masto came out in support of gutting the filibuster.
This shouldn’t be a surprise. Cortez Masto led Senate Democrats’ fundraising operation last cycle. Biden reportedly considered her as for vice president. She’s the definition of a Democrat insider.
Cortez Masto may want Nevadans to think she’s a moderate, but she doesn’t act like one in Washington, D.C.
