  1. John Fetterman should get Steve Schmidt on the election team effort – Fetterman and Schmidt are two bulls in the ‘reTRUMPlikkkCON political’ china shop.

    1. @DeadReckoning listen little kid. i know the truth is hard to come by on these elites media broadcast companies but you should try and do your own research instead of just repeating garbage propaganda you heard on tv from the establishments puppets.

    1. @Budom K Effects of the $15 Option on Employment and Income. According to CBO’s median estimate, under the $15

      option, 1.3 million workers who would otherwise be employed would be jobless in an average week in 2025.

      (That would equal a 0.8 percent reduction in the number of employed workers.) CBO estimates that there is about

      a two-thirds chance that the change in employment would lie between about zero and a reduction of 3.7 million workers (see Table 1)

    2. @elroy the great funny. We have the Pres. House and Senate. What do you think your wage will be if it passes. Only idiots vote red.

    3. @imp thedimp I am self employed. I have two employees that are paid commission and can do well,. but most small businesses would not be able to afford $15. It would destroy many.

  2. Fetterman is a great politician – really smart but down to earth vibe – plain spoken and progressive – funny and hate to say it – would definitely get a beer with him 🙂

  3. Sedition curious. That’s a nice way of putting it. I like this guy and I have never been to the great state of Pennsylvania.

    1. @youmutha ..Close. The line is the Wolf talking to Vincent in the house while they plan the disposal of the body.

  4. Wow talk about don’t judge a book by its cover ,he tells the truth, a no nonsense man ,I wish him luck ,I wish there was more like him in Congress, we would not be in this mess,we have QAnon in Congress now ,republicans senators won’t do nothing about Trump,they should make him accountable for what he did ,but no give him a free pass look what happen the last time they did ,didn’t they learn anything

  5. “Sedition free”/“sedition curious” / oh man, sohhhh where we are. This brother is . I agree with everything he spoke about here as the truth, the moral truth, n nuthin but the truth. Seat him now please.

    1. Effects of the $15 Option on Employment and Income.
      According to CBO’s median estimate, under the $15
      option, 1.3 million workers who would otherwise be
      employed would be jobless in an average week in 2025.
      (That would equal a 0.8 percent reduction in the number
      of employed workers.) CBO estimates that there is about

    2. The $15 an hour minimum wage is a joke! People that are making minimum wage now getting 25 to 30 hours a week will be cut to about 15 to 20 hours a week. so tell me where the $15 an hour is going to benefit anyone as a matter fact it’s going to cause some business to close the doors because they just can’t afford it.

  6. He must succeed in order to get Pennsylvanians back on board with working for America and no longer work for Vladimir Putin.

    1. @Jonathan Mol That’s horrible hon. Hoping that the minimum wage is increased so you can live better. America has to do better.

    2. @G d I make $ 4.25 on the road plus tips and a 33 cent per mile. Every 2 weeks I get a check for $336. I am really relying on the tips.
      I am trying to pass additional pesticide license tests to increase my income 3x.
      Right now I only make enough to apply for Medicaid.

  7. This guy rocks and is exactly the kind of person we need in public office. Tells the truth, calls out the bs, & takes no crap. Vote for him Pennsylvania!

  8. I love John Fetterman. He’s a smart, brave, and fair-minded politician. I’m an independent, so I look for leaders with good policies. This guy’s got the right ideas.
