just got a long e-mail from

DFA -- bottom line -- they wanted a contribution for bernie.

hillary -- social security

i also want to talk about hillary and her position on social security. last night bernie tried to get her to take a pledge that she would remove the cap.

she said that raising the cap was a posibility but there were other options which could help social security. they all involved having the rich pay more.

i want to address the cap. my late husband seemed to reach the cap every september. it was nice to have 3 months of an extra $700+.

right now the cap is $118,500. now some may think if you make that much money you're rich. not so, especially if you live somewhere like NYC or san francisco and have children.

i believe hillary is thinking of removing the cap after $250,000.

re: hillary's speeches. my

late husband worked for IBM for 43 years. high performing employees were rewarded with trips, etc. of course part of it had to be business for tax reasons. they would hire famous people to speak at these events. i remember one year it was doris kearns goodwin.

could that be what goldman sachs does?

some of these bernie supporters love

to argue. i never used "ignore" until about 2 weeks ago. now i'm thankful for it. i just had one who i told i would not argue with kept coming back at me.

his name is berniepdx420. be prepared if you come in contact with him.

bernie speaking now. same old thing.

i haven't heard anything new from him since he started the campaign except how much his numbers have gone up.

anyone watching rachel? very

interesting history.

before i read a thread in GD primaries i look

at who the poster is supporting. if it's bernie i will not read it. i've had enough of hillary bashing to last me a lifetime.

that being said if bernie is the nominee he will get my vote.

is there anyway to keep bernie supporters

from posting here? we need a safe place to get away from them. so many just want to argue or trash hillary.

don't want to argue -- just want to ask a question.

what happens if bernie becomes president and he can't fulfill his promises? how will his supporters feel?

does anyone think congress will work with him after all he's said about them -- "they're all taking money", etc. (which is true).

remember what obama went through trying to get ACA passed and he's a likable guy.

that being said. i'd rather have a president who gets nothing done than a republican who will push through their agenda.

thank you chris matthews -- the best

interrupter. you left donald trump without an answer.

great work.
