the OP.

That said, I'm giving it another KICK and thank you!

She's good at doing that to causes I care about.

13. Ya know on this issue of single payer health care too...

 

SEIU represents a lot of health care workers, and I believe some nurses too. Certainly a lot of home health workers, and hospital staff.

I have a hard time accepting why this union endorses a candidate that in the last debate made a full throated attack against the idea of single payer health insurance.

I really question whether they're serving their members well. If I was an SEIU member right now I would be in full revolt mode.

14. I didn't get that email. Guess they left me out of that as well as the polling.

I do see the endorsement on their web page but no comment session (I wonder why).

17. The probably scanned DU, found all the Sanders supporters and then made sure not to send them

the email survey.

18. Clinton is fighting for an increase in the national wage.

 

Unions are doing the same. The thought process some have is amazingly flawed. Steve, if a candidate started the fight for 17, regardless of clout or other positions, would you blindly jump in with that candidate? How some of you come to this thought process is beyond me.

20. SEIU was fighting for $15 and a union


Clinton is fighting for $12. You will see a couple photos of Hillary here from long before the endorsement. No pictures-stories of Bernie fighting for $15. I wonder why?

22. They are both fighting for a higher national wage.

 

One candidate has no clout an unions are very well aware of this. Few of Sanders colleagues will even endorse him. I know, it's because they are scared or some other made up bullshit. lol. One person out there right now has the clout. It isn't the guy with no backing or coattails. The unions know this very well. Once again, your thought process that it is about fifteen or bust is very flawed. Truly makes no sense logically. Will you just jump behind the first fight for 17 person? It's comical at this point. We need a higher national wage. Unions know a huge step toward accomplishing this is to get Clinton elected President. Common sense. They has it.

24. They compromised before they ever got to the actual enemy, the Republicans

And then never even so much as mentioned their previous stand.

It's comical in an ironic sense.

or one that won't fight for us?


No, wait, I know the answer to that one. Have a great day anyways.

30. Gallon of milk, $4. Loaf of bread $3, Dozen eggs $3, 2 apples $2.

Gee whizzers - my family...my kids could plow through that like magic...................

Then there are those products with the shrinking package contents that never charge less for less.

Then you have so many people who can only get part-time hours working for the slavers, have household bills (besides) food to pay for, kids always have unforeseen expenses, hell there are always unforeseen expenses.

Fuck that $12 bullshit. Aim HIGH.
