Overall not a great article, but here’s some good parts.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-09-10/sanders-stuck-in-second-place-under-pressure-to-upstage-warren

Jeff Weaver, a senior policy adviser to Sanders, said the race will evolve leading up to the first nominating contest, in Iowa on Feb. 3.

“This is a multi candidate field, so this is not a race where you need to get 50% of the vote to win,” Weaver said. “It’s probably about 30% to 35%. I think as voters tune in, as they hear about a program that is going to uplift working people in this country, voters are going to remember that Bernie Sanders been the person talking about these issues for decades and that he is the best standard-bearer to take on Trump and take this country forward.”

Some leading figures in the Democratic Party insist Sanders has little to worry about. His consistent polling is a bright spot in a field where some of his rivals are ebbing and flowing — and some are flaming out, said Charles Chamberlain, chairman of Democracy for America, a grassroots progressive group with more than 1 million members.

Sanders is playing an aggressive ground game in states such as Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and North Carolina, he said.

“One of his strengths is that they’re building a very strong campaign,” added Chamberlain, whose group hasn’t yet endorsed anyone. “He may not have risen in the polls, but they’re not sinking. They’re doing a fantastic job of steady as she goes, which is critical in a race with so many candidates as this.”

THE LEGITIMIZATION MACHINE: ELIZABETH WARREN

All of these claims obscure the fundamental truth that Sanders and Warren are different in kind, not degree. Warren has always been a market-first neoliberal and nothing she’s doing now suggests deviation. Despite her barrage of plans and recent adoption of left rhetorical shibboleths like “grassroots movements” and “structural change,” Warren remains a neoliberal legitimization machine. Anybody who’s serious about amending and expanding the social contract and/or preserving the habitability of the planet needs to oppose her candidacy now.

The CFPB, on the other hand, is Warren’s “tough on banks” baby, heralded for extracting nearly “$12 billion for 29 million consumers in refunds and canceled debts.” Those numbers sound impressive, until one realizes that credit card interest rates and payments have not diminished but exploded since the CFPB’s creation in 2011. In fact, Americans paid $113 billion in credit card interest in 2018 alone, a 50% percent payment and 4% interest increase over the last five years.

Despite Warren’s claim that the CFPB was “about making markets work for people, not making markets work for a handful of companies that scrape all the value off to themselves,” the agency’s cop schtick has functioned as performative cover for escalating bank industry power, with profits of 236.7 billion in 2018, a record increase from 2017 of 44%-72.4 billion. The CFPB’s individualist “bad-actor” approach has also made it vulnerable to rollback under Trump, because it has done nothing for the majority of millions impacted by usurious but legal practices.

Furthermore, Warren’s complete inconsistency on keystone structural reform like Medicare-for-All reveals the jive behind her recent zeitgeist calls for “big structural change.” While Warren has at moments voiced support for M4A, most notably during the second Democratic debate, support and a commitment to win the legislative fight of our lifetime are not nearly the same thing. Warren not only conspicuously neglects M4A in her stump speeches, she still doesn’t have a healthcare section on her website… Six months into her campaign. Read that again. Given the unprecedented scale of the opposition, Warren’s clear lack of commitment makes it certain that M4A would never happen under her presidency.

Okay, enough quotes. It’s a good article.

It is a good article–thanks for alerting us to it TC!

Regarding Warren’s supposed “consumer advocacy” or whatever she calls it with respect to the CFPB. The CFPB is written in the same spirit, and with the same pro-business spin as the EPA. And the EPA was installed under Nixon. These are not New Deal type agencies, they are neoliberal institutions. The mission of these newer agencies is to “fold” the unhappy population into conforming to the prevailing American business model. Ever notice how often the EPA fails to hold business accountable for filthying up the environment? EPA’s enforcement statutes are very limited indeed; the purpose of the agency is not to protect the environment, but to grease the wheels of privatization of public assets (air, water, etc.). If you don’t like the environmental pollution, EPA will be of little help to you, and will signal that you should take your case to the courts for litigation.

CFPB is not so different in spirit, despite its name. It is not written for “consumer protection” against the depredations of the world of finance. Instead, the agency’s guidelines are all about bending the consumer over a barrel, forcing her/him to conform to existing business practices, and deterring actual questioning of those practices. The tacit assumption throughout is that business practices are “good,” OK, our way of doing things, all for the best, etc. In the foreclosure debacle after 2008, CFPB was all but useless for the unfortunate families who lost their homes to rapacious and unscrupulous banks. Its guidelines merely indicated if the bank is doing something truly preposterous to you (then you might be able to go to court); but nowhere is there any analysis of the bank fraud that David Dayen wrote about in such depth, or of what the hapless homeowner might be able to do about it.

Liz’s work on the CFPB positions her, as the author here says, squarely in the neoliberal camp. As a further question for her: What would she do about the “usurious but legal” practices currently enshrined in our law codes? And on what basis, with what foundation, would this neoliberal attempt to change such laws, if at all?

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/elizabeth-warren-ady-barkan-medicare-for-all-interview-video-2020-democratic-presidential-primary_n_5d7737eee4b064513573a0ed

Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren delivered an impassioned explanation of her support for a “Medicare for All,” single-payer health care system in an interview with terminally ill progressive activist Ady Barkan.

The nine-minute video capturing Barkan’s discussion with Warren at his home in Santa Barbara, California, released on Tuesday, represents the Massachusetts senator’s frankest discussion to date of a subject matter that she has been more reticent about than other elements of her platform. By contrast, Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who is her closest ideological ally in the crowded Democratic presidential field, has made the policy a central theme of his campaign.

Barkan, a 35-year-old attorney living with ALS who now speaks with the help of a computer that reads his eye movements, specifically asked Warren why she supports a single-payer system that gets rid of private health insurance to attain universal coverage, rather than other policies aimed at achieving the same goal.

“I think of this as about our values. Health care is a basic human right,” Warren replied. “What we’re trying to do is make sure everyone is covered at the lowest possible cost. And that’s Medicare for All.”

Warren went on to reiterate an argument she has made when pressed on the matter in two Democratic debates ― that for-profit health insurance companies whose business depends on charging as much as possible, and paying out as little as they can, are inherently inhumane.

But beyond affirming her support for Medicare for All, Warren addressed criticism from left-wing activists who question her commitment to the policy. Although Warren co-sponsored Sanders’ single-payer bill beginning in 2017, she has not made it a major theme on the campaign trail, or produced her own Medicare for All plan with a white paper like she has published on everything from student debt to criminal justice.

Barkan asked whether her apparent trepidation about single-payer health care’s most controversial provision ― the elimination of private coverage for any procedure covered by the government ― reflected her affinity for regulation by market forces over “dramatically expand[ing] the size of the public sector.” (Warren has distinguished herself from Sanders, a self-described “democratic socialist,” in part by touting her belief in markets and her identity as a “capitalist.”)

“No, I think it was more … focused on transition than on endpoint,” Warren responded. “But there are areas where markets just don’t work and a big part of health care is one of those. So the idea that we could get a couple of regulations in place and it will sort itself out is just not true with health care.”

She added: “I get financial decisions over whether you’re going to be able to get a new car or what it looks like, but not financial decisions at the heart of basic health care. Medicare for All is about a relationship that all of us have to each other.”

https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/more-americans-go-without-health-coverage-census-bureau-reports/2019/09/10/74dd9c22-d312-11e9-9343-40db57cf6abd_story.html?utm_source=reddit.com

The proportion of Americans without health insurance grew significantly last year for the first time this decade, according to new federal figures that show the number of people lacking coverage rose to 27.5 million.

The findings released Tuesday, based on a large U.S. Census Bureau survey measuring Americans’ well-being, reverse the trend that began when the Affordable Care Act expanded opportunities for poor and some middle-income people to get affordable coverage.

With health care already a central issue in the 2020 presidential campaigns and a prime voter concern, the fresh evidence that insurance is slipping further out of Americans’ reach can be expected to escalate partisan warring on the subject.

The uninsured rate rose, as well, in 2018, marking the first time since 2009 that both the number and rate of uninsurance rose from the year before. The change was driven primarily by a decrease in public insurance for the poor, with enrollment in Medicaid dropping by 0.7 percent, the data show.

https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2019-09-09/argentina-election-trump-right-wing-latin-america-support

The White House is bracing for the likely electoral defeat of Argentina’s conservative, pro-U.S. government, the latest example of how shifting Latin American politics are complicating President Trump’s agenda in the region, including ousting Venezuela’s leftist President Nicolas Maduro and stemming the flood of refugees to the U.S.

The diminution of partners for Trump stems from his preference for and reliance on right-wing leaders in Latin America just as they are increasingly falling out of favor with voters amid corruption investigations and resurging guerrilla violence.

The most immediate looming crisis is here in Argentina. President Mauricio Macri, who has had business ties with the Trumps for decades, faces an uphill reelection battle in voting next month. He already finished 14 points behind his chief challenger, Alberto Fernandez, a pro-left populist, in primaries on Aug. 11.

During Macri’s term, he became a darling of the Trump administration and of global investors. Argentina was awarded the largest International Monetary Fund loan in history; hosted last year’s Group of 20 summit and other high-level international conferences, and was a front-line partner in the Trump administration’s regional alliance to replace the Maduro government with Venezuelan opposition forces.

Administration officials are particularly concerned that a Fernandez government will reduce its role in the Lima Group, a coalition of 14 Western Hemisphere countries working to peacefully end the crisis in Venezuela.

Already, the influence of the group was substantially weakened when Mexico, following the inauguration in December of leftist President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, abdicated its leadership role and took a more passive position. Lopez Obrador, contrary to his predecessor, opposes Mexican intervention in other countries’ domestic affairs.

“Though [Fernandez] might turn out to be relatively moderate on economic issues, he will no doubt take his foot off the gas on Venezuela policy,” said Benjamin Gedan, who heads the Argentina project at the Wilson Center, a nonpartisan think tank in Washington. “Should the Argentine opposition win, the White House would lose a critical ally, as the authorities in Buenos Aires would prioritize dialogue with Maduro over diplomatic isolation and sanctions”

Losing both Mexico and Argentina would be a huge blow to the White House, Gedan said. At its height, the Lima Group represented rare unity in the region against Maduro, but that has waned.

Bernie Sanders and his brother Larry went to Hebrew school in Brooklyn, but the senator said that, like many Jewish children, he didn’t take the experience so seriously.

“I am very proud to be Jewish. … I would tell you that I was not much of a Talmudic scholar,” he said. “I think mostly we were throwing spitballs.”

Sanders said that he learned to read Hebrew but didn’t understand most of what he was reading. “So we did speed reading,” he recounted. “We used to have races reading Hebrew. Unbelievable, but true.”

https://www.jacobinmag.com/2019/09/elizabeth-warren-2020-big-donor-ban-bernie-sanders-corporate-money

By contrast, while Warren proposes to “take on giant corporations” and doesn’t mind ruffling feathers among sectors of the business elite, she stops short of alienating the liberal rich and the Democratic Party apparatus that caters to them. Her policy proposals imagine good corporations as key partners in social change, and she’s working hard behind the scenes to assure pro-corporate Democratic Party establishment figures they have nothing to fear. Giving the Democratic Party–aligned rich a middle finger while working to empower a mass working-class constituency that can fight on its own behalf isn’t really Warren’s theory of social change. It follows that her commitment to rejecting corporate money is squishier than Sanders’s.

Freezing out megadonors, however briefly, is a good thing. But we should see Warren’s temporary abstention from big-dollar Democratic Party fundraising practices for what it is: rather than deriving from deeply held principles, it’s primarily a strategic adjustment in a political climate created by Sanders. To wit, Warren’s big-money ban precisely coincides with the one period during which Sanders will be her direct political opponent. Her commitment didn’t come a day sooner, and according to her it won’t last a day longer.

No leader who’s serious about drastically improving life for the working-class majority can play for both teams. Every solid victory for the working class will come at least partly at the expense of the capitalist class. Bernie Sanders knows what team he’s on. All the others, even when they do things we like, are simply responding to the ultimatum he’s presented.

The latest weekly Morning Consult National poll has Bernie up 1 to his highest level since late April. Biden 33 (+1), Bernie 21 (+1), Warren 16 (same), Harris 7 (-1), and Buttigieg 5 (same). Their early state poll is basically the same as the national.

Sanders has the best favorability rating in the field at 75 percent positive and 18 percent negative, followed by Biden, who posts a 72-20 split. Sixty-four percent of Democrats have a favorable view of Warren, against 15 percent who view her unfavorably.

Definitely not a good poll for Bernie but it does seem to be pretty screwy. Buttigieg at 11? Tulsi at 6? Delaney at 3? No other polls anywhere are showing this.

Biden beats Trump by 10, Bernie beats him by 5, Warren loses by 2. The poll also has Yang beating Trump by 8 and Harris beating him by 2

Trump fires NSC adviser Bolton

https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/460702-trump-fires-nsc-adviser-bolton

President said Tuesday that he has ousted John Bolton as his national security adviser.

Trump said in a series of tweets that he told Bolton Monday night “that his services are no longer needed at the White House,” citing disagreements with many of Bolton’s suggestions.

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration,” Trump tweeted.

“I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week,” Trump continued.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/10/us/politics/john-bolton-national-security-adviser-trump.html?smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur

President Trump fired John R. Bolton, his third national security adviser, on Tuesday amid fundamental disagreements over how to handle major foreign policy challenges like Iran, North Korea and Afghanistan.

Mr. Trump announced the decision on Twitter. “I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.”

His departure comes as Mr. Trump is pursuing diplomatic openings with two of the United States’ most intractable enemies, efforts that have troubled hard-liners in the administration, like Mr. Bolton, who view North Korea and Iran as profoundly untrustworthy.

Weingarten’s support is great especially if he can get the AFT (1.7 million members) to back him.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/09/10/exactly-what-ive-hoped-100-education-leaders-voice-support-sanders-k-12-plan

More than 100 national education leaders are publicly backing 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders’ plan to reform the American school system, his campaign announced Tuesday.

Unveiled in May, the Thurgood Marshall Plan for Public Education calls for “a transformative investment in our children, our teachers, and our schools, and a fundamental re-thinking of the unjust and inequitable funding of our public education system.”

“No president or presidential candidate has offered a proposal so bold and sweeping, which directly addresses the fiscal starving of American public education at the same time that the federal government got into the business of regulating, mandating, and controlling the nation’s schools and classrooms,” declared Diane Ravitch, former U.S. assistant secretary of education and research professor at New York University.

Sanders aims to address “the serious crisis in our education system by reducing racial and economic segregation in our public school system, attracting the best and the brightest educational professionals to teach in our classrooms, and reestablishing a positive learning environment for students in our K-12 schools,” according to his campaign.

“Bernie’s strong and ethical education platform is exactly what I’ve hoped for,” Jonathan Kozol, a National Book Award recipient and activist for public schools and racial equality, said Tuesday. “His courageous and unqualified support for racial integration of our public schools sets him apart from the timid and equivocating centrists who have put unprincipled consensus ahead of social justice in the primary campaigns.”

“Ninety percent of parents in this country send their kids to public schools, and they want those public schools to be a top priority,” Randi Weingarten, president of American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and another backer of Sanders’ plan, said Tuesday. “That’s why Sen. Sanders’ plan to invest in public schools and provide real accountability over private alternatives is vitally important.”

humphrey

I am not sure that I trust Weingarten.

https://www.peoplesworld.org/article/aft-members-to-drive-presidential-endorsement/

WASHINGTON—This time around, members of the American Federation of Teachers will drive its presidential endorsement process – and it’s going to demand Oval Office hopefuls walk in teachers’ shoes, too.

The March 20 decision came after a 30,000-person mass conference call convened the night before by AFT President Randi Weingarten to hash out the details, explain the proposed plan and – most importantly – get feedback.

That’s not what happened in 2015-16, when Weingarten and the union board approved an early endorsement of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the White House, over the objections of supporters of her main challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Ind-Vt.

“There was a lot of uproar over that,” one local union president said recently. “A lot of people were very unhappy.”

jcitybone

Surely not but it will be hard for her to push for another candidate when she is publicly supporting Bernie’s education plan.

Of course, Biden could just as well use this line of attack on Bernie also who has just as many (and more comprehensive) plans.

http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/09/biden-could-use-some-more-warren-style-planning.html

One of the much-anticipated features of this week’s Democratic presidential-candidate debate in Houston is the first direct encounter between two of the field’s Big Three: Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren. And via CNN, Team Biden is letting it be known that its champion is going to go after the fiery yet wonky Massachusetts progressive on one of her favorite talking points:

Joe Biden is expected to use this week’s debate to argue Democrats should select a nominee who is able to offer “more than plans,” an adviser to the former vice-president says, previewing a potential line of attack against Sen. Elizabeth Warren, whose campaign mantra is “I’ve got a plan for that …”

The Biden adviser said the campaign refuses to “accept that the bold, far-reaching change” proposed by Biden is “anything but progressive.”

“The more expensive a plan is doesn’t make it more progressive. Running for president is about making people’s lives better, and that only happens if the change proposed becomes reality,” the adviser said.

jcitybone

I do hope Biden goes after Warren (and vice versa).

Biden Aims to Use Debate to Question Warren’s Corporate Work

Joe Biden plans to argue at this week’s debate that all presidential candidates — including the incumbent — must be transparent about their finances and any business dealings in their past.

The approach, described by a Biden adviser on condition of anonymity, could be seen as a veiled attack on Elizabeth Warren, who the Democratic front-runner is sharing a debate stage with for the first time on Thursday in Houston.

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/09/10/billionaire-george-marcus-prepares-to-host-2020-joe-biden-fundraiser.html

Billionaire and real estate magnate George Marcus is preparing to host former Vice President Joe Biden next month for a 2020 fundraising event.

Marcus, a billionaire megadonor who bundled more than $100,000 for Hillary Clinton in 2016, is expected to be the lead host at a lunch for Biden’s return to San Francisco in the first week of October, according to people familiar with the matter.

Biden’s allies have been prodding Marcus for months to open his doors to the campaign, these people added. Biden’s campaign announced the candidate will be traveling to California on Oct. 3, but the press release did not give further details.

The fundraiser signifies that Marcus is looking to dedicate his expansive donor network to Biden’s candidacy for president. Beyond his previous assistance to Clinton, Marcus also hosted a fundraiser that featured former President Barack Obama in 2014. The event was for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at his mansion in Los Altos Hills.
