12. lol to see Hillary supporters 'concerned' about a nurse "superpac"

After her gluttonous appetite for Wall Street millions.

First, its donor list. The other superPACs are financed largely by millionaires. As for the NNU committee, "It's funded exclusively by our members," said Michael Lighty, the union's public policy director.

Technically, the PAC dates back to 2009, when independent expenditures were legal but the legal concept of superPACs did not yet exist. In the 2014 elections, Federal Election Commission records show, the nurses PAC spent $2.3 million, and was entirely funded by the union itself. There's only one disclosure report for this year, through June 30; the PAC reported getting no contributions at all.


This so-called Superpac existed before the legal concept was established. It was not solely created to help Sanders but to push Single Payer and other health initiatives. You righteous Hillary defenders do understand the difference between members of unions, and large financial corporations don't you?
