NY's $15/hr wage increase follows Hillary's plan exactly.

As she called for numerous times: $15/hr in high cost of living areas: NYC and $12/hr everywhere else: upstate NY. That is literally her plan.

Interesting analysis on the primary race

Heres a snippet:

Bernie Sanders, we the people demand that you divest your Wall Street portfolios!

Big banks, big pharma, and the fracking industry!

Should I start a petition?

Remember when we all at DU demanded Mitt Romney release his taxes?

Good times!

What is he hiding?

"Americans are tired of hearing about the damn emails"-Bernie Sanders

And there it is. That's the GOP fodder against Hillary Clinton, some "damn emails". Emails Americans dont give a shit about, easily defended, and likely tossed out.

On the other hand....

Here's the likely GOP fodder on Bernard Sanders that would be run on a 24/7 loop until election day. Cue the ominous voice:
1-Dodged the draft
2-Honeymooned in USSR
3-Praised Fidel Castro
4-Pledged to raise middle class taxes
5-Wrote questionable essays on rape and womens health
6-Calling himself a socialist
7-Voted against bill to rescue US economy
8-Possibly bring up vote against rescuing auto industry (an attempt to siphon off union votes)
9-30 yrs in govt with little to show
10-Collapse of an entire healthcare industry
11-An economy in chaos
12-Weak on foreign policy
13-Weak on National security

Etc
Etc
Etc

Now, if you are like me and not easily persuaded by bullshit republican narratives, congratulations. But the vast majority of America is easily terrified and not only will this be an electoral shellacking, but Democrats downticket will be forced to constantly try to defend those above items which would lead to a downticket disaster.

I have a feeling President Obama, who has 2 daughters and is pro-gun control, might not be thrilled about campaigning for a candidate who voted with the NRA, wrote questionable essays about women, and trashed many aspects of his presidency. (Chalk another one up on that list the GOP will use against him on an endless loop).

Imho, Hillary Clinton is the supremely qualified candidate with the resources and army of surrogates ready to win the White House and take back the Senate.

Just my 2 cents on the horse race. Have a great Sunday.

Bernie turns down 3 NY debates

Bernie has also received oil money, he is also a millionaire with 2 homes and Wall Street portfolios



He also moved to a different state to run for office. He voted for more wars than Hillary. Voted to deregulate Wall Street, Hillary did not. Voted against immigration, Hillary did not. Voted to protect the gun industry, Hillary did not. Voted against rescuing the economy, Hillary did not. Voted against the final bill to rescue the auto industry, Hillary did not. And wrote questionable essays that would have disqualified any other candidate on both sides of the aisle. Hillary did not.

The teeth gnashing, excuses, and denial will be yuge in this thread.
