      Perhaps the fuzziness around O’Rourke’s political positions isn’t a mistake. Maybe it is designed to obscure facts about his record that may prove to be inconvenient in a Democratic primary. After all, this is a lawmaker who abruptly backed off unequivocally supporting Medicare for All, aligned himself with the party’s Wall Street faction, voted to gut financial regulations, supported Republican-crafted tax cuts, boosted the fossil fuel industry – and then broke his own pledge to reject donations from oil and gas executives.

      A liberal heartthrob who votes with Republicans
      The 46-year-old O’Rourke has racked up a voting record helping Republicans ram parts of their agenda through the Congress. In an era of growing economic inequality, O’Rourke has split with the majority of his party to vote for Republican initiatives to weaken Wall Street regulations and accelerate bank mergers – and he once voted for a Republican bill that Democratic legislators said was designed to block the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s from combatting racially discriminatory lending. He also voted for a key part of Donald Trump’s so-called deportation force.

      IOW a corporate whore in demure clothing…Let’s derail his train soonest!

      I’m getting bad vibes from Beto.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

      county as he drove, talked and put on a stage show, across the entire State of Texas.

      The Herself Corporation has found its Electoral College Kingpin to slither back and forth like a vibrating guitar string.  Where is he headed to next?  :evilgrin:

      IMO, The Clinton Machine/New Democratic Party Corporation, is counting on all those Texas rural voters to give Herself/Beto, the state’s 38 Electoral Votes.  Herself is re-calculating back at Campaign Headquarters in New York as options on the Hillary Victory Fund have run out the calendar.
