Highly recc’ed for visibility.
Question #6 needs to be screamed from the highest mountain over and over and over again;
“Why do you probe the costs of reform while sidestepping the higher price tags of the status quo?“
The dirty secret establishment hacks do somersaults to ignore.

….Aaaaaand as usual, the MSM treats this like another tiff of celeb trash-talk.
All the media blurbs on my homepage just keep referring to a “spat” between Biden and Bernie: it’s all they want to talk about. They give nary a shit of the substance of the “spat”, and even much less of the issue that drives it.

I’d like to know too. I’ve been a unionized employee for decades and I haven’t noticed any “love” for employer based HC on an institutional level…other than the fact it’s better than going bare.
A few RW dolts I work with have been throwing the “government bureaucracy” buzzword around in synchronicity ( having obviously being “coached” from RW…[Read more]

It added jobs? Where?
The US went from a ( small ) trade surplus with Mexico to a burgeoning trade deficit from 1993 onwards.
The “giant sucking sound” of US jobs lost to Mexico portended by Ross Perot did indeed occur.

It’s a parasitic sector of the economy.
Again, a sector of the economy, not “the economy”.

I agree. I believe they are feigning surprise or dismay as to stagnating wages, ostensibly to give them some measure of plausible deniability.
In this way, they believe they can have their cake and eat it too: Their gains are further solidified ( yet again ) while claiming they’re not culpable, because they’re “surprised”.
That’s the culmination of the corporatist’s narrative whereby the citizen has been replaced by “the consumer” as to who all the cogs are in the great big wheel. This spin has been so drum-beaten into the pols and media’s heads that the assumption was that “the consumer” can/will/always exist, even in a vacuum.
It’s just that they’ve been so…[Read more]

I guess that she figures, that by now, since she’s being exposed as more and more of an establishment neoliberal, that, what the hell; might as well let the cat out of the bag and be done with it.
Now with Trump being seen as a demonstrative loon, she’s got the cover and that the whole “not Trump” angle has new life breathed into it.
I got a bullet hole in my roof that way, about a dozen New Year’s ago. Some idiot yahoo nearby. If I was outside on the patio during the 4th of July instead of inside on New Years…and the trajectory fell 20 feet short, it would have been a hole in my head.
