So exactly why should we give the dems our money and support?

I am curious about what the 2 California Senators have to say about this development.

Too bad that this is true.

Four legged weasels have more more honor and care for their young and community.

At least one candidate takes a stand!

I would not have been quite so polite.

And then there is Nancy Pelosi. If you ask me she is in with the wrong crowd.

They both should retire from their jobs

Of course Bernie weighs in on this issue!

Obama weighs in also! (snark alert!).

Former President Obama and his family landed on the resort island of Bali in Indonesia on Friday to begin a nine-day trip to the country that Obama called home for several years.

Obama’s trip coincides with a major effort by Indonesia’s Tourism Ministry to promote travel to the country, especially from the United States. The Jakarta Post reported that the Tourism Ministry will display promotional material in Times Square in New York City during the Obamas’ vacation.

To me Obama is history, don’t care what he thinks or does as its up to the Millennials to save the planet at this point and our democracy too , if that is possible . Yes i’m scared right now for my kids and the future.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, the cure for living in an undemocratic country is to go shopping? How could I? Now where’s that extra dollar I had….

Not sure if this was posted elsewhere but it is worth a read.

View story at Medium.com

A bill to establish single-payer healthcare in the state of California, HB 562, has been killed. The man who officially stuck the knife in it, Democratic Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, has assured Californians in a statement that the bill is not dead but merely sleeping while further “discussion and debate” is had over the bill and its merits. He is lying. Possibly to himself, and certainly to the people of California, but on one level or another Anthony Rendon is aware that HB 562 has been deliberately killed, and is choosing to lie about it.
How can I be so certain that Rendon is lying? Easy: he’s taken a tremendous amount of money from powerful corporate entities that officially and unofficially oppose the bill. He killed the bill on purpose, and he will do everything within his power to make sure it stays dead. He will do so while tooting the horn of progressivism, he will do so while pretending to support universal health care, but when it comes down to actually making it happen he’ll act like a keyboard warrior on a martial arts forum who suddenly finds himself challenged to a fight in real life. In a nation where money fully dictates government policy and congressional candidates who outspend their opponents almost always win, you only need to follow the money.

There is more at the above link. As per usual Caitlin is spot on.

Thank you to Magsview for posting this.

Like so many others I am both disgusted and saddened to see the California single-payer initiative go down. I’ve given up thinking there’s any essential difference btwn Dems and Repubs–with very few exceptions.

Does anyone know what happened to the single-payer bill in the NY legislature? It got such a silent treatment in the MSM that I was surprised to learn there even WAS a NY single payer bill until Subir’s post here, when I learned that not only was there a bill working through the NY legislature, but it had passed the Assembly mightily and was only 1 vote shy of having enough votes in the NY Senate! So by this time nada has happened (it is the NY dysfunctional legislature, after all) and all our lawmakers have gone home.

With CA failing, chances for the bill coming up again in NY are that much less, not that I think the pro-single-payer forces have given up. But the media silence on this has been positively deafening!

Happy weekend to all.

Just F***ing sad I had high hopes for Cali to lead the way – to start the trend towards a NHC (national Health Care) for all -AKA Berniecare-medicare for all. I’m pissed off to say the least

Sooo sorry to hear this!

The battle is still not over,

Will Rendon blink?
