Republicans are giving away the future, destroying promises made to future generations, all to give very wealthy people more advantages.

Where is the Tea Party? Where is Grover Norquist?

It’s Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren v the ‘No We Can’t’ Democrats

Delaney complained that the two progressive candidates were going to take away people’s health insurance and that ordinary people wouldn’t like that. Warren dismissed those concerns by pointing to how broken the current system is. She shared the story of a friend who, in the middle of battling a disease, was burdened by exorbitant medical bills and insurance-related paperwork – an experience that millions of Americans can relate to. And when an exasperated Delaney complained that his colleagues didn’t understand healthcare from a business perspective, Sanders told him that was the point: it shouldn’t be a business. That might have been difficult to hear for a congressman who has made money off the industry for years.

 

Sanders replied by reminding him that every credible poll has him beating Trump. He runs especially strongly in battleground states, where he can expose Trump as a “fraud” and a “phony”. What’s extremist about giving people a living wage, or having them pay less for prescription drugs?

 

Despite polling showing how popular the core progressive agenda of universal healthcare, jobs, and free education is, centrists are desperate to portray themselves as the only sane, electable option out there. This isn’t just the strategy of some long-shots in a crowded field – it’s the argument keeping Joe Biden at the top of Democratic polls.

But the electability bubble is in danger of bursting. Centrists used to run on lofty rhetoric: the “Yes, we can”, “hope and change” stuff. Now they’ve ceded that ground completely to Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

See the real problem

Tariffs are not a Republican economic policy. They are a Russian order from Putin. Puppet Trump is so thick, he can’t even explain who pays the tariffs

BEIJING (Reuters) – China has approved wheat imports from the Russian region of Kurgan, the Chinese customs office said on Friday, bringing Russia a step closer to its goal of dramatically increasing grain exports.

It also approved soybean imports from all parts of Russia, the General Administration of Customs said in a separate statement on its website, having all but halted U.S. soy imports as the trade dispute between Beijing and Washington deepened.

China was the top buyer of U.S. soybeans until Beijing slapped a 25% tariff on shipments last year in response to U.S. tariffs on a range of Chinese products.

Russia, already the world’s top wheat exporter, plans to invest billions of dollars in grain infrastructure and logistics with the aim of raising its exports of the commodity to at least 55.9 million tonnes by 2035.

This year, Russia is expected to export 41.9 million tonnes of grain, including 31.4 million tonnes of wheat, according to SovEcon, one of Russia’s leading agriculture consultancies.

Russian grain supplies could play a key role in President Vladimir Putin’s plan, announced a year ago, to increase the country’s exports of agricultural products to $45 billion by 2024. The agriculture ministry is in charge of that initiative.
