POVERTY : OBAMA’S LEGACY = CLINTON’S LEGACY.
Poverty is an issue we must address.
« In 2011, the American Journal of Public Health found that 130,000 people died in just one year alone as a result of poverty »: Bernie Sanders.
WE HAVE TO FIX IT. WHAT IS AN AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE IF YOUR CONDITIONS OF LIVING ARE POOR ? IT MAY BE TOO LATE.
THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY.
In the United States today, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, 47 million Americans are living in poverty.
Almost 22 percent of American children are poor and we have the highest child poverty rate of almost any major country on earth.
Let’s be clear. Livig in poverty doesn’t just mean you don’t have enough money to buy a big screen TV, a fancy laptop, or the latest iPhone. It goes much deeper than that.
Living in poverty means you are less likely to have a good grocery store in your community selling healthy food. Far too often it means you don’t know where your next meal is going to come from. Living in poverty means you are less likely to have access to a doctor, dentist or mental health care provider. It means you have less access to public transportation, which makes it harder to find a job. It means you are less likely to have access to child care.
In the United States of America, poverty is often a death sentence.
Yesterday, I spoke about poverty in McDowell County, West Virginia — one of the poorest counties in one of the poorest states in America. In 2014, over 35 percent of the residents in McDowell lived in poverty, including nearly half of the children. The roads are crumbling and only 6 percent of adults have a college education. Less than two-thirds have graduated high school. It has the lowest life expectancy for men in the entire nation. I hope you’ll watch part of my speech on poverty and share it with friends and family on social media.
Poverty is an issue we must address. In 2011, the American Journal of Public Health found that 130,000 people died in just one year alone as a result of poverty.
This is not an issue we can just sweep under the rug and hope it will go away. Because it won’t.
And when I talk about it being too late for establishment politics and economics, this is what I mean. When I talk about thinking big and outside the box, about rejecting incremental change, I am talking about the millions of Americans who live in poverty who have been tossed out, left behind, and abandoned by the rich and powerful. We need to create an economy that works for all of us, not just the 1 percent.
Here’s what we need to do:
- Rebuild our country’s crumbling infrastructure. A $1 trillion investment in our infrastructure will create at least 13 million jobs all over America – jobs that cannot be outsourced.
- We must rewrite our disastrous trade policies that enable corporate America to shut down plans in places like West Virginia and move them to Mexico, China, and other low-wage countries.
- We can create 1 million jobs for disadvantaged youths through legislation I introduced with Rep. John Conyers of Michigan.
- We need to increase the wages of at least 53 million American workers by raising the minimum wage from a starvation wage of $7.25 an hour to $15 an hour.
- At a time when women workers earn 79 cents for every dollar a man earns, we need to sign the Paycheck Fairness Act into law. Equal pay for equal work.
- We need to make health care a right for every man, woman, and child through a Medicare for All single-payer system.
- We need to treat drug addiction like a mental health issue, not a criminal issue.
- We need to ensure every worker in this country has at least 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave, two weeks of paid vacation, and one week of paid sick days.
- We need to impose a tax on Wall Street to make public colleges and universities tuition free while substantially reducing student debt.
- At a time when half of older workers have no retirement savings, we’re not going to cut Social Security, we’re going to expand it so people can retire with dignity and respect.
No president can do all of these things alone. We need millions of Americans to begin to stand up and fight back and demand a government that represents all of us. That is the political revolution.
THIS IS HOW YOU LEAD BY EXAMPLE. BY TACKLING HEAD-ON THE UNACCEPTABLE POVERTY IN AMERICA. THE MOST POWERFUL NATION ON EARTH TOTALISING 47 MILLION PEOPLE LIVING IN POVERTY. INCREDIBLE !
REMEMBER THE 47% GOV ROMNEY WAS DISMISSING IN 2012 WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE MEDIAS WHICH THEN ENDORSED HIM AGAINST OBAMA.
TODAY THAT THEY WOULD LIKE THE FORMER SECRETARY TO WIN, THEY ARE PRAISING AND ECHOING OBAMA IN DESPAIR. YES OBAMA IS SUPPORTING HIS FORMER SECRETARY – COULD HE BE DOING DIFFERENTLY ? NO WAY.
OBAMA’S LEGACY IS CLINTON’S LEGACY. MORE OF THE SAME POORS CREATORS.
VIEW WHAT THIS LEGACY IS ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO POVERTY. FACTS NOT PARADES AND CHEATINGS WITH THE HORIZONTAL MEDIAS DOGS LIKE WAITING FOR A HOT-DOG TO EAT LIKE THE THREE-HEADED DOG OF HARRY POTTER.
Bernie Sanders detailing Poverty in America. Astonishing ! Poor children in America ! I have a deep emotion and love for you.
Democratically Yours. My children. You are the reason why We, the People and Bernie Supporters are standing. For a Future WE believe in.
⇒Leading by example again with the IMF which is there along with the World Bank to help programmes targetting poverty reduction and development intiatives convergent to this aim.
IMF Financial Activities — Update May 5, 2016
Hillary Clinton courts Jeb’s « Republican fundraising machine ».
Last year, after Jeb Bush announced that his super PAC raised more than $100 million, the Clinton campaign said they believed the money came from a « small handful of right-wing mega-donors. » They asked supporters to come to their aid against Jeb’s « Republican fundraising machine. »
Now, sadly, the Clinton campaign is asking that same crowd of Republican financiers to contribute to her campaign because she « represents their values better than Donald Trump, » the Republican nominee himself!
Bernie Sanders believes that you cannot change a corrupt system by taking its money.
We are funding our campaign a different way. And every vote we earn, delegate we claim, and state we win from now until the convention is only because people have come together to say they are SICK AND TIRED of the billionaire class buying our candidates and elections. And that’s why we ask:
Can Bernie count on you to make a $2.70 contribution today? Your donation, along with the thousands being made right now, will ensure we have the resources we need to fight for the values we share through the Democratic convention.
Donald Trump’s nomination means the Democratic Party has a generational opportunity to establish itself as the party that will fight to provide health care as a right for every man, woman and child in this country. The party that will lead the way to tuition-free college so kids can graduate without crushing debt. The party that takes our democracy back from the oligarchy that Trump and Jeb Bush represent.
That is what the political revolution is about, and why your contribution is so important.
« SICK AND TIRED of the billionaire class buying our candidates and elections. »
TURN YOUR CITY ORANGE
The first step to addressing a problem is recognizing we have one. On June 2, millions of Americans will recognize the 91 Americans killed and hundreds more injured by guns every day and will #WearOrange to mark National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
We want to make this year our biggest campaign yet — and that’s why we’re asking for your help to turn your city orange.
As a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, your mayor has already shown leadership on this issue by advocating for stronger gun laws. Now, can you ask them to take the next step and mark June 2 as National Gun Violence Awareness Day?
Sign the petition asking the mayor of your city to declare June 2 National Gun Violence Awareness Day.If no one has started a petition in your city yet, you can start one!
Last year, a group of Chicago teens asked us to Wear Orange to raise awareness. This June 2, we have an opportunity to honor their commitment and respond louder than ever before. Last year was the first National Gun Violence Awareness Day. This year, with your help, big cities and small towns from coast to coast will mark the day and honor the 91 Americans killed and hundreds more injured by gun violence every day.
If you choose to start your own petition, you’ll be in charge of gathering as many petition signatures as possible and delivering them to your mayor. Organizers will be in touch with tips and tricks on how to make your campaign a success.
Thanks so much for your commitment to our movement.
Deputy Political Director
Everytown for Gun Safety
Immediately, after I posted this Everytown for gun safety email, we got the following, from the sneaky Dominique Browning – Co-Founder and Senior Director, Moms Clean Air Force. Finally, the truly face is out and it is ugly.
We are up against corporate polluters and climate deniers with billions of dollars to spend fighting against air protection. But we have love. And that has to be the most powerful force there is.
My essay about Grandmother Hormones was written in the spirit of expressing that love—and in honor of all of you who have joined our cause.
I want to be able to look my grandson in the eye and say, « I am doing everything I can to
make your world cleaner and safer. »
Happy Mother’s- and Grandmother’s- Day!
Co-Founder and Senior Director, Moms Clean Air Force
Those are people like Credo, hidden spy for either the New York Times or the so-called elected boys. Like the whole humanity, each culture and group of persons can be ranged into two categories : good people and poor ones. That seller of grandma hormones is poor and miserable. If this is the subject she thought interesting to study, it tells a lot about her character.
Specifically, grandma got no hormones, or they are not.
There is a pattern in white females section and males alike considering women are old starting from 35 plus. At 50, they are no longer women or desirable. Culturally, the West considers a woman as a product with an expiration date. And, of course, they would like to generalise their pattern to the entire women on Earth.
What is a grandma today ? My sister became grandma at 32.
Second, with the progress and life expectancy going up, what is the accuracy of grandma as a concept.
Third, if she was so happy to become a grandma, so what ? And why are we concerned ?
Finally, the timing of this message being sent AFTER my post to sell the NYT to me bears a terrorist signature by the invisible PACK.
The same pack OF JEALOUS, rats of my houses and routes. Unlike them, I’m not concerned in searching women hormones or something nasty, I’m not concerned in personal and low attacks, I’m not interested in small people and smallness, neither in insinuations or personal lifes, I’m not a vampire or a persecutor.
Unlike them, people like me have not age. We are from all ages : young, adults and veterans can feel somekind of empathy. The secret is unique : keep desirable and desiring. Keep living and caring. Keep positive ans smiling not with your mouth but with your heart.
Using the Mother’s day to send something else is a common trend of that dishonest and malicious pack behind Secretary Clinton.
If being pregnant, having a baby or becoming a grandma is that breaking news we are waiting for, then what our ancestors have been doing for 2,000 + centuries now if not multiplying. Meanwhile, you may have noticed those are big news today. Oh, this celib is pregnant. Oh a baby is born. IT used to be a Royal or presidential baby, which makes sense. Now anyone’s baby is royal… even the grand-children of anybody are big news… Instead of elevation things are downsizing step by step ; dangerously.
in particular, pictures are no longer there to illustrate the words, but to attack others from behind, surreptitiously, without the courage and honesty to assume who the attack is targeting. Lol.
Good luck Grand ma, working for the NYT. I thought grandmas were retired, according to the old pattern, insisting on the expiration date.
In Yahoo France, my picture of the day was cause to a tutorial about a woman of 80 becoming too young, just with super lays of make-up to rebuild her past face.
Upside down is another favorite song of mine. So forget about this and let’s move forward with ageless and cleaned-minded people.
The message is not the grandma joy, but the hormones of women like me – and this picture who can make them sick – dismissed as being too old= grandma. The other part of the message is the NYT free ad, not looking for it I suppose. There is even more of that…
This is the kind of grandma you should keep far away from, for her negativity and dismissive considerations. Keep feeling a woman and being desirable. Grandma is your personal life, your privacy to protect and keep for you. Once you breach those bareers, voyeurism becomes not only a rule, but a norm. Spying becomes legal. Harming people follows, for there is no cleaned-intentioned spying. In the end, personal attacks are more and more aggressive and poor.
YOU CAN BE RICH IN MONEY BUT OVERALL POOR.
Sisters and Brothers –
Now that Ted Cruz and John Kasich have dropped out, it looks almost certain that Donald Trump will accept the Republican Party’s presidential nomination in Cleveland this July.
So there’s been a lot of talk over the past few days about how Democrats and independents must do everything we can to defeat Trump in November. And we must! Because a President Trump would be a catastrophe.
But it’s not enough to just be against Donald Trump. We also need to be for a bold platform.
Every vote we earn, delegate we claim, and state we win between now and the convention amplifies that message exponentially. And that’s why it’s important that I ask:
The Democratic Party is the party that passed the Social Security Act, a 40 hour work week and the minimum wage, Medicare, the Civil Rights Act and much more. Surely we can aspire to more than simply convincing enough Americans that a reality television star should never be our president.
This moment in our history calls for transformational change. And with Donald Trump as the Republican Party’s nominee, it is within our grasp. But only if we’re willing to reach just a bit further than the establishment says is possible.
