Sometimes, the hypocrisy of politicians is just too much for any human being to stomach. Newly elected Democratic Congresswoman Lois Frankel’s latest messages are a prime example.
A few days ago, Frankel sent out an email asking supporters “to stand up to Grover [Norquist] and work together for our middle class families.”
Now, maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think a whole lot of working middle-class families hang out at a “Luxury Chamber Chamber of Commerce” event, which, according to multiple press releases, is where Frankel is going to hold her “first public appearance.”
According to its press release, the Luxury Chamber of Commerce holds events where one can “mix and mingle with high-end purveyors of luxury goods and services at an upscale venue.”
The event Frankel will attend, promoted by South Florida publicist Barry Epstein, is being hosted at Reserve Wealth Management in Boca Raton.
But aren’t private money managers who hold Luxury Chamber events the same kind of people who manage money for rich, white Republicans like Mitt Romney? Isn’t a big part of their job to maximize their clients’ return on assets while minimizing their taxes?
Of course, it is, and that’s fine with me.
But didn’t Frankel and the Democrats just win an election by running against the rich, whose income is so expertly handled by private money managers that they can screw the middle class by not “paying their fair share”?
Of course, they did.
Will anyone in the mainstream media, who I’m sure get the same press releases I do, report on this hypocrisy?
Of course, they won’t.

Isn’t it time your Wealth got a Second Opinion?
Lois Frankel’s email to supporters:
You know what we can’t afford- our country being forced over the “fiscal cliff.”
Republicans are falling in line behind Grover Norquist, and his bullying tactics and desperate attempts to enforce a 20-year-old pledge. Our country needs Republicans to stand up to Grover Norquist now. Over 20,000 of you have already stood up for the middle class and we need to keep standing up for our middle class families.
We need to work together with the GOP to get things done. We need 7,500 people by Friday to sign on and tell the GOP to stand up to Grover and work together for our middle class families. Click here to stand up and fight back today.
The last thing that Washington needs is more bullies. Our country wasn’t built by people like Grover Norquist–it was built by people who were willing to work across party lines to get things done. We need to stand together to make sure that our country isn’t forced to go over the fiscal cliff and our middle class families don’t get stuck with a tax hike. Click here to tell Republicans to stand up to Grover Norquist and fight for our middle class families instead.
This is our chance and our moment but we need to work together.
