House Democrats Unveil Tepid, Meaningless Slogan for 2018 Midterms

House Democrats Unveil Tepid, Meaningless Slogan for 2018 Midterms

“I don’t think any of us are claiming this is poetic or this is the end-all-be-all of messaging”

You may think House Democrats have no message other than the fact that they’re against Trump, or that they want to roll back the tax cuts, but you’d be wrong. They recently announced their new slogan and it’s a real snoozer.

Heather Caygle reports at Politico:

House Dems unveil new midterm campaign slogan

House Democrats have finalized their campaign slogan heading into the last months before the midterm election: “For the People.”

The new motto, which Democratic leaders unveiled in a private meeting with members Wednesday morning, is meant to put a finer point on the broad economic-based messaging Democrats have been pushing with mixed success since last summer. That initial message — a “Better Deal” — has largely failed to break through with voters and has been openly mocked by some Democratic lawmakers.

House Democrats plan to begin working “For the People” into their statements and press conferences, with a focus on three key areas: addressing health care and prescription drug costs; increasing wages through infrastructure and public works projects; and highlighting Republican corruption in Washington.

They’re super confident in this message, too:

“I don’t think any of us are claiming this is poetic or this is the end-all-be-all of messaging,” Bustos said. “It’s just a way, in a quick way, to put together the answer to what we stand for.”

Charles C.W. Cooke of National Review has spotted one little problem with the new slogan:

Here’s a question. What do House Democrats want for the people? Answer: Medicare.

Kimberly Leonard reports at the Washington Examiner:

House Democrats to form ‘Medicare for All’ Caucus

Roughly a third of House Democrats are forming a new caucus that will push for healthcare legislation to roll all U.S residents into the Medicare program.

The “Medicare for All” Caucus of 60 founding members will be announced Thursday morning and co-chaired by Democratic Reps. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, Keith Ellison of Minnesota, and Debbie Dingell of Michigan.

Ellison, who is also deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is the lead House Democrat behind the Expanded and Improved Medicare For All Act, which has the support of more than 120 of 193 Democrats in the House.

Millions of Americans will respond this fall by saying, “No thanks.”

How about socialism rocks instead?

I don’t think President Lincoln would appreciate the party of lazy degenerates co-opting a phrase from his Gettysburg Address.

Forward, for the people, because I’m with her and this Bud’s for you.

“House Democrats Unveil Tepid Meaningless Slogan for _____”

It’s an evergreen headline. The 2018 part is superfluous.

Meaningless slogans is what socialists do.

“Twirling, twirling to serfdom!”

Here’s the real slogan: Raise taxes, open borders, confiscate guns FOR THE PEOPLE.

“Crazy Is Better”?

For the People is better than the second, third and fourth choices:

“Stumble Drunk Hillary, Again”
“COEXIST or We’ll Smash You in the Face, Kuomintang Fascist!”
“You Shameless Renegades, You Would Be Well Advised to Behave With

How about “Welcome to California”?

A question: Which people?
Here are some of the easier synonyms;
For La Raza
F the People
For the Peasants (imported)
The bill is For the People

I have to rate the slogan a D, with a red circle around it.

For the Mexican people

For the immigrant people

Not for the Deplorable people

They forgot to include the word “CONTEMPT” at the beginning.

When you think your only problem is messaging, you change your message every so often, without ever looking at the substance.

Hillary’s campaign did the same thing, changing slogans repeatedly until they found the one they were comfortable failing with.

“Meet the new boss!”

There’s even a theme song already prepared.

I laughed when I heard this, as they are using the same trite tag line of the ambulance chasing law firm of Morgan and Morgan, who advertise incessantly. I hope the law firm sues them!

From our share, your share.

This is so laughable! Just hillary trying to find a catchy slogan for her uninspired campaign, the Dems haven’t a clue that they have abandoned the “People”. Over 70% want border control. More than 60% want to stick it to China and the EU for the gouging on trade they have been doing for 50 years. Less than 40% want single payer healthcare. 80% want to make union dues optional. Most people are enjoying their tax cut supplied by the Republicans. So what exactly have the Dems got planned for the “People”? crickets!

Just today I saw a yuge “For The People” billboard along one of South Florida highways. It was a Morgan&Morgan ad.

Their last big candidate was tepid and meaningless.

Miss Barack says that ‘men have been getting on my nerves lately’

Now that Beta Barry is out of the White House, no man wants to get on anything of his – other than his nerves.

I suppose it’s better than the Dem’s second choice, which they’ve been using for most of the last decade

Bend over.

Oikophobia For The People

Nancy pelosi has always been a corrupt, malignant and obnoxious presence. Now she’s a stuttering one.

Maybe she’ll drop dead on stage,and provide generations worth of video entertainment. Who knows: maybe hillary klinton will join her in a duet: which one will hit the floor first?

Its Mocktastic!

The punchline of a million jokes.

I hope they stick with it, this will be a fun cycle!

“For the people” you say? I’d say more like, “From the people”, (we get their taxes, their votes, their land, their firearms, their children, etc…).

    “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” –Karl Marx

    Funny though, the Democrats’ “need” is always WAY more important – and expensive – than the “need” of the poor, the homeless, the disadvantaged, or those unable to care for themselves (elderly, disabled, etc.).

    Reality-check slogan: For FROM the People

    They want TAX MONEY from the people, and their votes. That is all. Nothing is “for the people.”

    Democrat Part = Marxist Party, as they have nothing to “for the people” unless those “people” are their inner-circle, i.e. their cronies.

      Edits – *Party , and *nothing “for the people” (scratch that extraneous “to”)

      Edit option….what would I give for an edit option?! 🙂

The slogan, “Shoes for Industry, shoes for the dead!” keeps running though my mind…

Oh thanks for the laughs this morning.. it’s a very tough decision but I’ll put my vote in for Tiki’s ‘Coexist or we’ll smash you in the face.’ Must reread this thread several times today.

How lame. There are a group of scum ball ambulance chaser Demoncrat supporting lawyers in Jacksonville, Florida that use the “For The People” slogan. I hope they sue the DNC.

“For the People” = “For the DemoncRATs.” No thank you very much.

We need to let the slide what began on Jan. 20, 2009 as the loss of their power continue. When they have the power, they do NOTHING good for We the People, no matter their slogan being “Hope and Change”, “Yes We Can”, or “Transforming America.” It’s the results that matter and watching “What they do” instead of “What they say” is the smart analysis to use in deciding who to elect.


In other news, unemployment applications are the lowest that they’ve been since 1969 and nothing like that happened while Barack Obama and his demoncRATs held the power. It seems smart to give more power to what has been working since Jan 20 2017, i.e., Republicans and President Donal Trump, especailly after realizing THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF RUSSIAN COLLUSION, IMPROPRIETY, OR ANYTHING ELSE TO WARRANT AN IMPEACHMENT COUP D’ETAT. DemoncRATs need to get over their butthurt election loss and seek professional help for their “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

OleDirtyBarrister | July 20, 2018 at 3:54 pm

I wonder if John Morgan of Morgan & Morgan suggested that slogan to build awareness of it and enhance his ambulance chasing.

Or if he is unhappy the DNC-CPUSA is using it and diluting it.

OleDirtyBarrister | July 20, 2018 at 3:55 pm

The DNC-CPUSA forgot to say whether it is available 24/7/365 like John Morgan.

Slogan should be “LYING SOB’s”
