This little shitbag is an even more aggressive defender of the neoliberal status quo than Biden is. Seriously, find someone who looks at you the way Mayo Pete looks at private health insurance premiums.

The reactionary zeal with which he leaned into that Harvard Debate Club showdown with Beto over mandatory gun buybacks, incrementalism vs. ambitious reform, etc., aaaalmost made me feel bad for Beto.

As for the mind-bogglingly, exhaustingly disingenuous argument that there is some kind of metaphysical difference between payroll deductions used to buy insurance CEOs' yachts and payroll deductions used to fund public services: there is a handy new interactive tax policy simulator, courtesy of famed Berkeley economists Saez and Zucman, that allows users to see for themselves just how fucking stupid this is. Sample output:

Data for Progress poll-tested these four (anonymized) plans, and the results are shocking. Shocking!

But we're supposed to believe the Rhodes scholar doesn't understand any of this -- or risk pools, administrative overhead, drug price negotiation, or anything else about how healthcare works. Mmmmkay.

I'm done with this guy. He's a less violent and smirky version of Klobuchar.

He's positioning himself as the fallback for Biden voters as Biden continues to falter, and it seems to be working. He's rising in the polls in Iowa. Mayo Pete is gonna be around a while.

blech. His angling is so transparent, but I guess most people aren't paying attention too closely? I missed the last debate, but most of the edited clips seem to be pushing Klobuchar's time on the clock, then this guy, who managed to sneer a little less than she did.
