  4. Trump the Rump will not be around. He will be broke in search of food stamps while begging Putin to be his lover.
  5. "Three of every four major health-care firms have at least one former insider on their lobbying payrolls, according to The Washington Post's analysis. Nearly half of the insiders previously worked for the key committees and lawmakers, debating whether to adopt a public insurance option opposed by major industry groups. Congressional hirings are part of a record-breaking influence campaign by the health-care industry, which is spending more than $1.4 million a day on lobbying in the current fight, according to disclosure records. And even in a city where lobbying is a part of life, the scale of the effort has drawn attention. For example, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) doubled its spending to nearly $7 million in the first quarter of 2009, followed by Pfizer, with more than $6 million."

  8. Bill will vote for anyone even bad candidates then blame all others as the Clintons and the DNC have been doing. The GOP has gone straight to hell!!!
  9. $1.4 million health care dollars day was spent defeat the reform of health insurance. Okay, let's start out with 1.4 million a day. That's $1,400,000 a day. A year = approximately 365 days. $1,400,000 x 365 = $511,000,000 So that's $511 million - which means that in a year, the healthcare industry spends - on average - half a billion dollars on lobbying. Now, let's look at the last 8 years under George W. Bush. We know a year = $511 million, so let's multiply that by 8: 511,000,000 x 8 = $4,088,000,000 And let's just double-check our numbers to be sure: 365 x 8 = 2,920 So 8 years = 2,920 days. 2,920 x $1,400,000 = $4,088,000,000. Yep, that number is correct - meaning that in the 8 years under GW Bush, the healthcare industry spent 4.088 BILLIONdollars on lobbying alone.That's 88 million dollars more than Chrysler got in bailout money on Jan. 3rd. That's approximately 20% of the 19.8 billion that was approved for Post-Hurricane Katrina recovery.Hell, that's $488 million more than was alotted for just levee repair in that recovery package. , http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/06/26/747191/--1-4-million-per-day-on-healthcare-industry-lobbying http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/07/05/AR2009070502770.html
  10. Bernie Sanders is the candidate that will represent the largest number of voters which encompass moderate republicans,moderate democrats/progressive democrats and Green Party constituents. One big reason electing Bernie is far more important because he will impact middle class wallets big time..... the lions share of voters. http://www.healthcare-now.org/docs/spreport.pdf The Peoples Budget is the only budget that does everything this country needs: * Reduces Debt by $10 trillion * Creates good-paying jobs * Fully maintains our social safety net * Invests in education * Ends our costly wars * Closes the tax loopholes that have made offshoring jobs profitable * Ends oil and gas subsidies that pollute our country at taxpayer expense * Creates a national infrastructure investment bank to help us make intelligent investments for the future The People's Budget represents not just common sense; it represents the will of the American people. The People's Budget is important to our quality of life. These aren't just words on a page or numbers in a table— these dollars and cents mean lives helped or hurt, people succeeding or falling by the wayside, and families lifted up or dragged down. This is about America. What the Peoples Budget does very specifically: http://www.npr.org/2011/04/15/135435883/the-nation-obama-should-fight-for-peoples-budget http://www.democracynow.org/2011/4/14/while_obama_touts_compromise_with_gop http://www.thenation.com/blog/159939/fighting-peoples-budget Yes impacts our wallets and the amount of expendable dollars WE will have to either invest,save or throw at the economy !!! In essence the war needs to end,single payer insurance needs to be on board,Public Education needs new leadership and saved, the USA needs a peoples budget,women need a strong voice,student debt needs a lot of help and we need a powerful new clean energy policy that will also drive new jobs as will single payer insurance. The GOP has gone straight to hell!!!
  11. YOU LIE .....the parents provide guidelines to their children.

  13. Clintons are neither democrat nor republicans. Your argument is baseless aka without foundation. Blame the people who did not vote.
  14. Moderate republicans and democrats have much in common with Democratic Socialists, Progressive Democrats of America and Green Party people that which actually represents the lions share of voters. Time they all come together and be the force ........ Why? The republican party has gone straight to hell
  15. First/maybe comes indictment, then arrest, , then maybe conviction and/or impeachment. why the hell not?
