Big Money Nick Troiano Runs for Congress Against Big Money

Who is the co-founder of The Can Kicks Back, a political corporation funded by billionaire Peter G. Peterson to advocate for taxing poor people more, taxing corporations less, and slashing social security for old people?

Who is now running for Congress with a campaign plank of “campaign finance reform?”:

“I believe America deserves better than the partisan gridlock and special interest corruption in Washington, DC. Read more about me. I believe people should be the driving force of our democracy, not well-funded special interests.”

    Oh that’s just too rich. Now that The Can Kicks Back has kicked the bucket, Little Nicky will do anything to avoid getting a Real Job. Pete Peterson must have told him “the only way I’m giving you more money is if you get elected.”

    The truly puzzling thing is that L’il Nick is running on a platform of “generational equity”…which figures, in a way, since that’s the horse he’s been beating for years now. But he’s running for Congress from Pennsylvania (the PA 10th district, to be precise). Pennsylvania’s demographics are A LOT older than the country as a whole…because any young kid with any sense at all gets the hell out of Dodge the day he leaves high school (Nick being the exception, apparently). Fun fact: according to the 2012 Census, 13.7% of Americans are age 65 or older, whereas in the PA 10th it’s 17.5%. So he’s running in a grey-haired district on a platform of “kick granny out into the snow.” Sheer political genius.

    Lord, I hope he gets the nomination. Watching the buffoonery of his Americans Elect Corp. and TCKB past come back to haunt him would be hugely entertaining.

      Well, you know, Bill, people do turn corners. Maybe Nick Troiano has figured out that his previous path isn’t working and means something sincere about reform.

      Maybe. The key is, given his track record, to watch.

      Let’s watch!

    “The problem was you had to keep choosing between one evil or another, and no matter what you chose, they sliced a little bit more off you, until there was nothing left. At the age of 25 most people were finished. A whole god-damned nation of assholes driving automobiles, eating, having babies, doing everything in the worst way possible, like voting for the presidential candidates who reminded them most of themselves.”
    ~ Charles Bukowski, Ham on Rye

    QUESTION: Why does Pete Peterson for Congress automatically forward to Nick Troiano for Congress? http://www.petepetersonforcongress.com

    • Jim Cook

      ANSWER: Quite possibly because someone in Massachusetts bought that domain last night — shelling out an extra $10 to hide his or her name in registration — and set the webpage with automatic forwarding to nicktroiano.com. Anyone, anywhere, can make any website automatically forward to another.

      You call yourself J Troiano but you left an e-mail address that’s anonymous.

      There are real questions to ask about a Nick Troiano run for Congress… and then there’s either silliness or a setup. This is the latter, right, J?
