Pro-Clinton billionaires’ personal attack on Bernie Sanders

This video from the USA says about itself:

14 January 2016

Chris Hayes talks to Senator Bernie Sanders about Hillary Clinton‘s recent attacks on his health care record.

By Jeff Weaver, campaign manager of the Bernie 2016 presidential campaign in the USA today:

With just two weeks to go before the Iowa caucuses, the super PAC coordinating with Hillary Clinton’s campaign is reportedly launching one of the most desperate and vile attacks imaginable: they are insinuating Bernie is too old and unhealthy to be our next president.

Bernie Sanders is roughly the same age as Hillary Clinton and Republican party front-runner Donald Trump.

Ronald Reagan was president of the USA when he was 87 years old; thirteen years older than Sanders now.

Let me be very clear with you: Bernie is in excellent health. But this personal attack is another example of a sickness in our democracy when it is so easy for millionaires and billionaires to buy up candidates and elections.

We are just three points behind in Iowa, but closing every day. We can’t let super PAC attacks on Bernie’s health and health care plan scare people away from voting for Bernie.

Your $3 contribution to Bernie’s campaign could be the difference between victory and defeat in the Democratic primary for our political revolution. Make one today.

In spite of these Karl Rove-style attacks, Bernie’s going to stay focused on the real issues impacting working families across the country. While he does that, we can make the millionaires and billionaires coordinating with the Clinton campaign pay a price for their attacks.

In solidarity,

Jeff Weaver

Thursday night’s debate in North Charleston, South Carolina was the sixth in the contest for the Republican presidential nomination, and by now, these events have settled into a predictable rut. Each has been a political freak show, featuring crude insults, bizarre and brazenly false assertions, and appeals to racism and anti-immigrant bigotry. The candidates seek to outdo each other in fear-mongering and militaristic tub-thumping, to appeal to the fascistic “base” of the party. The latest installment in this increasingly dismal spectacle added anti-Semitism to the mix, thanks to Senator Ted Cruz, whose attack on billionaire Donald Trump for holding “New York values” was a dog whistle to ultra-right prejudice against the largest Jewish community in the United States: here.

  1. For the first time in this race, one of the super PACs supporting Hillary Clinton’s campaign has placed a “six-figure” ad buy in Iowa, putting its thumb on the scale in her favor less than two weeks before the caucuses.

    The super PAC is predictably funded by a number of millionaires and billionaires, including a former Goldman Sachs executive who “pioneered the trades that allowed the mega-bank to profit from the collapse of the housing market.”
