Why I left the Democratic Party

Well, this story gives one an idea why the Democrats suck almost as bad as the Republicans.

The Democrats and Hillary’s Funders Just Sunk to An All-Time Low

The divide between establishment Democrats and progressives in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 presidential election has taken an interesting twist in a Florida Congressional race.

Florida Democrats are raising money for sophomore GOP Congressman Carlos Curbelo, who represents the 26th congressional district, in his campaign for reelection against Democrat Debbie Mucarsel-Powell.

The Democrats co-hosting the August 23 fundraiser include former Miami Mayor Manny Diaz, Homestead, FL Mayor Jeff Porter, Florida City, FL Mayor Otis Wallace, top Hillary Clinton donor Ira Leesfield and attorney Roland Sanchez-Medina, who has worked on Democratic campaigns against Curbelo in the past.

The Democrats joined a group of Curbelo supporters that includes GOP Senator and former presidential candidate Marco Rubio, who will also host an event for Curbelo.

Curbelo, who paints himself as a moderate, is a pro-life Republican who voted to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Curbelo is Republican, pro-life and against single-payer, but the Dems will fundraise him anyway. http://miamiherald.typepad.com/nakedpolitics/2017/08/in-bipartisan-show-of-support-democrats-plan-to-host-fundraiser-for-curbelo-hes-also-got-rubio-lined.html …

Mucarsel-Powell, who allegedly supports single-payer healthcare and is backed by Planned Parenthood, has slammed Curbelo for voting to replace the Affordable Care Act with Trumpcare. She also noted that Curbelo has voted “more than 86 percent of the time” in line with President Donald Trump’s views, though Curbelo has distanced himself from the President.
