You’ve probably heard that California senator Dianne Feinstein, eighty-nine, has been too ill to show up to the Senate yet hasn’t resigned.
As a result of her absence, the Senate on Thursday voted to overturn a critical Biden administration effort to control truck emissions.
Shingles aside, there are serious questions about whether she is up for this job, cognitively and physically.
People will die because of this vote — a disgraceful yet fitting finale to Feinstein’s career, which has been spent faithfully serving capital.
Feinstein opposed single-payer health care, even as it became a mainstream political priority during Bernie Sanders’s last two presidential campaigns.
In sum, the criticisms of Dianne Feinstein are not sexist or ageist.
Not only is she not showing up for work — this billionaire has been serving the billionaire class for far too long. »
