20 thoughts on “‘Blairism, Clintonism help Donald Trump’, trade unions say

  1. A trio of polls released yesterday showed Hillary Clinton in a very difficult spot against Donald Trump. She led by one in Florida and Pennsylvania, and actually trailed him by 4 percent in Ohio.

    For months, Bernie Sanders has out-polled Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump, and often by extraordinarily large margins. Because we must do everything we can to defeat Trump in November, our mission is to win as many pledged delegates as we can between now and June 14.

    Then we’re going to have a contested convention where the Democratic Party must decide if they want the candidate with the momentum who is best positioned to beat Trump, or if they are willing to roll the dice and court disaster simply to protect the status quo for the political and financial establishment of this country.

    But for our plan to work, we need to keep winning. And that’s why we ask:

    Can Bernie count on you to make a $3 contribution to help us continue our run of wins in Oregon and Kentucky next Tuesday? They’re important states and Bernie is campaigning hard, but the outcome is up to all of us.

    Some people say we do better against Trump because we haven’t faced the Republican attack machine yet. But we’ve been told our goals for the future are utopian, and that our plans would raise taxes on middle class families. We just never thought those attacks would come in a Democratic primary. Yet somehow we keep winning.

    We are the best chance to defeat Trump because people united can never be defeated. That is why we must keep fighting.

    In solidarity,

  11. Senator Elizabeth Warren’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is on the verge of a groundbreaking new rule to crack down on predatory payday lenders.

    But now a group of corporate Democrats who have gotten millions from Wall Street are trying to stab Sen. Warren’s CFPB in the back.

    One Democrat sponsoring the bill has gotten $1.4 million from the financial sector this year alone. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has raised millions.1 Another Democrat supporting the bill got $589,388. And a third got $368,640.2,3

    Working women need these protections badly, right now, and we’re fighting back. Will you chip in $5 today?

    Yes, I’ll chip in $5 to help Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s CFPB fight back against these corporate Democrats.

    After the financial crash, Sen. Warren almost single-handedly created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to protect consumers from exactly these types of financial industry ripoffs.

    Payday lenders are notorious for preying on low-income women facing desperate financial situations, charging average interest rates of nearly 400% to trap their customers in a never-ending cycle of revolving debt.4

    And they’re growing fast. In fact, there are more payday lenders and check-cashers in America than McDonald’s restaurants.5

    If these Wall Street Democrats get their way, the CFPB protections against these predatory lenders would be delayed until the next president takes office, and they would be permanently blocked in the states with the biggest payday lending problems, like Florida.

    Will you chip in $5 to help Senator Elizabeth Warren’s CFPB fight back against these corporate Democrats?

    Thanks for all you do.
