Columnist Daniel Horowitz: ‘Trump Has Golden Opportunity To Draw Contrast Between Bernie Sanders And Him On Jailbreak’
By Dave Levine
Conservative Republican columnist Daniel Horowitz must be in Dreamland!
Here’s what he wrote this morning:
“Rather than running ads trying to out-left the Democrats on prison release, how about running ads hitting them over the head for creating millions of innocent victims through their unjustified jailbreak policies?”
He’s of course referring to Trump’s victim-insulting Super Bowl ad touting his signing National Jailbreak (aka The First Step Act).
Question for Horowitz: How can Trump gain the moral high ground on Jailbreak when he not only signed he largest Jailbreak bill in America but [he] continues to brag about it?
Answer: He can’t. Beyond that, only 2 House Republicans voted against The First Step Act on May 22, 2018 in the initial vote. The Republican Party is *almost totally behind Jailbreak and thus have given up any moral high ground they may have had. Trump’s Super Bowl ad shows how much he “regrets” signing Jailbreak!
* Three months ago, I posted the following regarding the SECOND and FINAL House vote on Jailbreak (aka The First Step Act):
In the initial vote, only 2 House Republicans–Steve King and Bill Huizenga–voted against it. In the final vote, 36 House Republicans voted against it including Conservative Reps. Biggs, Brooks, Gohmert, Gosar, Steve King and Posey. Idiots like Daniel Webster voted for it both times. RINO Huizenga changed his vote to “yay” in the final vote. 35 House Republicans saw the error of their initial vote (We can assume that many of them never read the bill).
President Trump signed National Jailbreak (IE The First Step Act) into law on December 21, 2018.
