The system is more at ease with Hillary as President

You've got Hillary paid heavily for speeches to the same institutions who crashed the economy with their hedge fund schemes and toxic mortgage-backed securities.
Her son-in-law worked 8 years in the hedge fund industry at Goldman Sachs before starting his own hedge fund group into which the Goldman Sachs CEO is invested.

And her campaign manager John Podesta (Group) handles PR (public relations) for billions of dollars in arms sales to the Saudis from such big players like Lockheed Martin. You know Saudi Arabia?... the country responsible for 9/11? Well the John Podesta Group is essentially a go-between that helps Saudi Arabia with their image to further sales growth in weaponry, etc.

The military industrial banking complex is powerful and they want her at the helm.

They are more comfortable with her as President rather than Bernie.


Bern it down.

Hillary supporters see no problem associating Bernie ...

...with his supporters. And they do it in the most negative ways.

However, they say we are being "negative" when we bring up her ties to the warmongering ruling class and banksters. In fact they deny these connections influence her at all.

The hypocritical disconnect is big...real big.

(I'd post this in the GD-P but I'm sure it would get locked)



A brokered Democratic Convention?

Hillary's son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky worked at Goldman Sachs for 8 years

2000-2008

Gee I wonder what the banksters did during those years?

Since he is Hillary's son-in-law is this relevant?

Here's the difference between Bernie and Hillary

We the people hoisted Bernie to the National stage.

Hillary cannot come close to claiming that.

...

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?
