    D.O.A. = Dead On Arrival | Establishment Wall St. Lobbyist & Managing Dir. of Bain Capital Deval Patrick OPPOSES Medicare-For-All and a Wealth Tax

     

     

    -snip-

     

    The former low-key, moderate Massachusetts governor jumped into the conservative lane of the primary yesterday, another Wall Street-friendly Democrat opposing Medicare-for-All and fundamental change. Although never charged with a crime, he was once on the board of ACC Capital Holdings (the parent company of Ameriquest and Argent Mortgage, predatory lenders and big players in the subprime mortgage game). He currently serves as a managing director of Bain Capital. Recall chastising Mitt Romney for working there?

     

     

    There is always a whiff of corruption around DeVille, as he was affectionately– and not so affectionately– known in Massachusetts but he was talking normal political bologna yesterday when he announced. “You can’t know if you can break through if you don’t get out there and try. I’ve been waiting for a moment like this my whole life. And by that I don’t mean a moment to run for president, but a moment when the appetite for big ideas is big enough for the size of the challenges we face in America.”

     

     

    He slammed the Democrats who have been doing all the heavy lifting so far: “[W]e seem to be migrating to, on the one camp, sort of nostalgia, let’s just get rid, if you will, of the incumbent president and we can go back to doing what we used to do. Or, you know, it’s our way, our big idea, or no way. And neither of those, it seems to me, seizes the moment to pull the nation together and bring some humility that– frankly– we have a lot of ideas, but no one candidate, no one party has a corner on all the best ideas.” On the other hand, his shady ties to health-care and drug companies, as the Wall Street Journal noted this morning, “could make him a punching bag for Democratic candidates who support single-payer health care and criticize the pharmaceutical industry.”

     

     

    He’s out of sync with Democratic primary voters in several fronts– another multimillionaire who opposes Medicare-for-All and a wealth tax, he super-serves special corporate interest and expects working families to be happy with the crumbs that fall off the tables of the super-rich like himself and his cronies.

    Just love how the billionaire Corporate New Democratic Primary Candidates are telling on the DNC.  The New Democratic Party is not for working people anymore.  Its the party of war and profit.

    Bernie is working hard to take back the party.  We need lots of voters.

    Patrick has been a running dog lackey of the kleptocratic regime for many years. He went easy on Texaco when he was in Obama’s Dept. of Justice and was rewarded with a VP position by Texaco. He was a spokesman for Ameriquest, which practiced predatory mortgage loans and drove at least tens of thousands of people, many of them black, from their homes.

    Until he announced he was a high muckety-muck for Bain Capital, Mitt Romney’s favorite predatory hedge fund.

    In short, he’s corporatist scum, of the bottom-feeder subspecies.
