It’s no secret that former New York City Mayor and current presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is trying to buy this election. At least it’s no secret to anyone paying even the closest bit of attention. And yet, Mini Mike, as President Trump likes to call him, is still apparently trying to keep things under wrap.

But Tuesday night’s latest Democratic primary debate might have just changed things a bit for him, at least on that front. After all, you can’t admit on live national television that you have literally “bought” the majority of Democratic House seats and no expect some type of repercussion.

Yes, you read that correctly. Bloomberg actually admitted that he bought the seats of over half of the current and new House Democrats who put House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in charge.

The discussion on the debate stage was focused on economics and, of course, the ever-present question: “What makes you the best for the job?”

Bloomberg’s response was to cater to what Never Trumpers wanted to hear, that he had put Congress in the position that it is today where it can “control this president,” and let me just say they are doing an excellent job, not. But in doing so, he made a rather big slip up.

He said, “They talk about 40 Democrats, 21 of those were people that I spent $100 million to help elect. All of the new Democrats that came in and put Nancy Pelosi in charge, and gave Congress the ability to control this President, I bought, uh, I got them.”

You might not notice just by reading this, but he actually caught himself. Instead of saying he bought them, which he did, Bloomberg barely finishes the word “bought” before changing direction a bit and saying, “uh, I got them.”

To get the full effect you have to watch it.

In addition, he tries to cover his mistake a bit more by changing the subject entirely and turning the topic to the federal budget/national debt and why his opponents aren’t going to fix it.

He said, “Number two. Let’s put things in perspective. The federal budget is $4.5 trillion a year; we get $3.5 trillion in revenue. So we lose a trillion a year. Right now, the debt is $20 trillion and going up to 21. We just cannot afford some of the stuff people talk about.”

And he is right. If we let Bernie Sanders, or Elizabeth Warren, or even Pete Buttigieg win the nomination and then the White House, our national debt will skyrocket. Sanders, for instance, would implement legislation that gives every living American free universal healthcare, free college education, government-assisted housing, and a minimum wage of $15 an hour. But how do you propose all of this “free” stuff is going to be paid for?

Bernie’s answer is to raise taxes, mainly for the rich, but also for the middle class as well. But this won’t even cover half of what he is proposing, let alone all of it. So this means the government will fall responsible for the rest.

And Warren’s plans aren’t any better.

But that certainly doesn’t mean that America wants a president who bought his way to the White House or any sort of legislative seat within our government. What would that prove if we let the office of the President of the United States just go to whoever the highest bidder happened to be? No longer would we be able to call it a republic nor a democracy. By allowing such, we would be opening ourselves up to be ruled by the very kind of powers our Constitution was created to avoid.

But as Bernie Sanders says, “Well, I’ve got news for Mr. Bloomberg – the American people are sick and tired of billionaires buying elections.” And now that Bloomberg has admitted to it, his poll numbers are proving just that.

In a relatively short amount of time, Bloomberg, with his $417 million spent on online and TV ads, was well on his way to being second in line and the only one within range of Bernie Sanders. But now, after a miserable Nevada performance and news of his buying House seats spreading, those numbers are dropping fast. One poll even lists him as the candidate most Democrats would be disappointed to see win.

It looks like he is figuring out real quick that Americans agree with Trump, “Major Party Nominations are not for sale!”

  1. Wow. An “honest” Democrat. One that actually admits that they cheat, lie and steal to get power over the little people. So he got, I mean bought the House for his own purposes, not the ultimate benefit of We the People.

    And Democrats still vote for anything (D) that promises them the most “free stuff”. That open cage door still beckons them and that “free stuff” is the bait.

    And to think that the average Democrat voter still damns Trump for his wealth all the while trying to choose between one uber-wealthy Democrat or the other. Hypocrisy, thy name is Democrat!

  2. DemocRATS control house, Mini-Mike bought them in. He owns them. DemocRATS have accomplished nothing worthwhile since being in control. Everyone is pissed at them and they will lose control of house. Will lose more seats in senate and Trump will be president.

  3. He might be playing poker and making a huge bluff!!!! So that Republican (say what is the use) and don’t bother going out to vote.

  4. Bloomberg and George Soros billionaires out to destroy America. They both belong in prison. I thought the democrat party was supposed to be for the common man, yet you have these two billionaires pulling the democrat party’s puppet strings. I hate to paint with a broad brush but every day another democrat politician is in the news for some illegality. The democrat party has sunken so low in their pursuit of power that they must be defeated and destroyed. Send them into the dust bin of history like Tammany Hall, the Whigs and the Know Nothing Party. We need to resurrect the principles and ideals of the founding fathers. It’s time to get the vast amounts of money funding these corrupt politicians out of politics. We need term limits across the board in local, state and federal elections. Our forefathers never designed the system of a Representative Republic to mean life time tenure for the moneyed class or their backers to dominate our Government. Sad to say we have become just what our forefathers were leery of. We are now a population ruled by a permanent ruling class bought and paid for by special interests. Our voices are not represented by our leaders, they are drowned out by the moneyed interests. Time to upend this corrupt system and return to the ideals that our forefathers.

  5. The United States cannot prosper under socialism. Socialism has brought poverty to other countries, no mater what those who advocated socialism promised. Look at Venezuela. Just a few years ago, it was a prosperous country. Now that socialism has taken over, they are in deep poverty. Socialism by any other name is still socialism. Over the last 16 years before Mr. Trump became President, the groundwork was being laid here in the United States, to promote socialism. Check out your food portions. Over the years the prices of food have been pretty “stable”. Sounds good? However, the portions of food you get for the “pretty stable prices” have gotten smaller and smaller. It has been done so systematically that the vast majority of people haven’t even noticed. It is called “Cook the Frog” effect. What is that? You get a large pot. Put water of a comfortably cool temperature in it. Place a frog in it. The frog will like the comfortable water. Then put the pot on the stove and put a low heat under the pot. As the water heats slowly, the frog does not notice. After a while it gets acclimated to the warm water that is begins to relax. As the water gets hotter, the frog is so enamored with the warm water, it does not realize that it is being cooked, until it is too late to do anything about it. Socialism acts in a similar way. Give everyone freebies to make them happy and then one-by-one, take freedoms away in return for the freebies. What you have left is a group of “empty” people with no dreams or a will to keep on keeping on when the going gets tough. As a matter of fact, the going gets even tougher as time goes by. When you lose all your freedoms, you have lost everything.
