Saw this in response to Robert Reich's post...

Had to share.

HRC and Big Oil...let's keep talking, shall we?


Hillary favors fracking and has encouraged it worldwide (at least as of very recently) and Bernie is against fracking.

So go ahead and focus on campaign donations as I think that's important also however...
Some of us are more concerned with the actual reality of big oil friendly behavior.
A terribly flawed track record that HRC can't be proud of...or maybe she is?

How Hillary Clinton's State Department Sold Fracking to the World
A trove of secret documents details the US government's global push for shale gas.
—Mariah Blake | September/October 2014 Issue

~excerpt~

Under her leadership, the State Department worked closely with energy companies to spread fracking around the globe—part of a broader push to fight climate change, boost global energy supply, and undercut the power of adversaries such as Russia that use their energy resources as a cudgel. But environmental groups fear that exporting fracking, which has been linked to drinking-water contamination and earthquakes at home, could wreak havoc in countries with scant environmental regulation. And according to interviews, diplomatic cables, and other documents obtained by Mother Jones, American officials—some with deep ties to industry—also helped US firms clinch potentially lucrative shale concessions overseas, raising troubling questions about whose interests the program actually serves.

Does Obamacare really care?

I really love the removal of pre-exisiting conditions that allow us access to insurance coverage but here's the deal...


I am 59 and my wife is 55.
Our AGI is around $55K.
We are retired.

We have the Blue Shield PPO under the Covered California Silver plan. This plan retails for about $1,300 per month. We are paying $650 per month (based on our income).

In 2014, when we add up all of our healthcare costs (we itemized), the total was $14,000.
Last year it was $10,000+ in health care costs total.
These costs were incurred via premiums, copays, services not fully covered, and deductibles.

What is "affordable" about this?



WE NEED A UNIVERSAL HEALTH PLAN FOR OUR COUNTRY NOW!!!

--

Here are the countries with Universal Healthcare

I get so tired of hearing from many here that "no we can't".

Countries like Mexico, with far less wealth than the USA can do it.

But the "no we can't" faction of our own Democratic Party fights against it.

Here is how the "unicorns" and "rainbows" are paid for

It's not with pixie dust.

Can we stop with the juvenile crap and if you have a problem then specifically address these proposals?

Senator Sanders and the "free stuff"

You may be a corporate conservative if you're against...

1. A stock transaction fee to pay for public college.
2. Removing for-profit health insurance, their ghastly copays, high premiums, deductibles, and dismal coverage in favor of a system similar to Canada's.
3. Ending insane trade deals that give enormous freedom to multinational corporations to plunger and pillage.
4. Stopping foreign intervention and "regime change".


I know it's much easier to start flinging "BernieBros, unicorn, fairy dust, unrealistic and socialist" insults rather than just admit you prefer the status quo.

I remember years ago here on the DU you'd be banned for posting up pro corporate conservative bullshit against what I have listed.
Today it seems even the DU has allowed a creep to the rightwing.

Ahhh...look at this cute picture

Blue shirt, ball cap, about in the middle close to the camera. Can't miss me. I'm in it a few times.
