Suppose George Marcus, who gave $4.5 million to Pelosi's House Majority PAC, or James Simons who gave $10 million requested a meeting with Speaker Pelosi. Would the request be granted?

Pelosi has earned a reputation as a highly skilled legislative manager and a prodigious fundraiser. But her solicitous skills at cultivating wealthy patrons (the top 15 donors gave a total of $37 million to her House Majority PAC during the 2018 cycle) are matched with her rather contemptuous attitude toward progressives who don't fit into the equations that compute for her on Capitol Hill.

No they don't. They work to keep the system operating at all costs, to their own personal benefit.

You're either a rube or an operative. probably the latter.

The people of San Francisco are progressive and wouldn't elect anyone who wasn't one of them.

Or has Russia gotten so far into our psyche that some of us think of the Bay Area as less than liberal?
