Did you miss this piping-hot take from Pete Buttigieg at last night’s Democratic debate?

Imagine thinking that’s a solid argument.
Holy guacamole that’s dumb

This is ridiculous on so many levels.

It really is. There’s so much stupidity to unpack … we’re not sure where to start. So let’s just get right into it, shall we?
Why not pay soldiers like doctors then? https://t.co/8Pb20OsAdX

No pay raise for soldiers, just respect? How do they live on that?

An admission that "pay teachers like soldiers" would in most cases be a pay cut. https://t.co/7wDDIoOREB

Soldiers make less than teachers…..

And no offense to teachers, but they’re not soldiers. Or doctors.
Like Doctors, really?

How does Pete Buttigieg propose to do this, anyway?
Pandering You: we need to pay teachers more.
People: YES! YES! YES!
Actual You: pay city and town employees more by increasing property taxes on homeowners and local businesses – potentially driving away future homeowners and businesses.
People: wait. What?

"We"? Who is "we"? Federal gov't "we"? Because the Constitution only addresses the 'soldiers' part of this. https://t.co/DHSBTYPriK

It's not the federal government's job to determine how much teachers or anyone should be paid…

How is Pete Buttigieg demonstrating “respect” for teachers? By shamelessly pandering to them. Wow. Much respectful.
We’re getting pretty sick of Mayor Pete.
