To those who want old politician geezers around before the internet to just disappear, consider this whiplash. Does being internet-savvy make you any less corrupt? 1. What about Bernie Sanders? 2. But, what about them? "Jerry Brown, assuming he wins another term as Governor in 2014, will term out and leave at 80 in 2018. Dianne Feinstein at 86 will be up for US Senate in 2018. Meanwhile, Barbara Boxer at age 75 will be up for Senate in 2016."
These 28 Senators are the strength of the Senate, and sad to say, they are all Democrats. Yesterday and last night they conducted a continuous series of speeches about our need to address the threat posed by Climate Change. They deserve our praise. As for the Republicans, they deserve our censure. Failure to have a plan regarding Climate Change is as irresponsible as going into battle without a plan. The full list of participating senators includes: Harry Reid of Nevada, *** Durbin of Illinois, Charles Schumer of New York, Patty Murray of Washington, Brian Schatz of Hawaii, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Barbara Boxer of California, Dianne Feinstein of California, Ron Wyden of Oregon, Bill Nelson of Florida, Maria Cantwell of Washington, Benjamin Cardin of Maryland, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Mark Udall of Colorado, Tom Udall of New Mexico, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Al Franken of Minnesota, Richard Blumentha .. ...
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO MY COUNTRY, WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME AND WHO IS IN CHARGE? . Part 1. What has happened to me? . I probably should start by discussing what has happened to me. I have seen something in myself that I do not like; a disappointing image in the mirror. It took the death of my brother-in-law to clear the fog from the glass that prevented me from seeing more clearly what I have become. . I love politics and have observed and studied it for years. For the last few years, I have been very disappointed by the outcome of several elections and primaries including the election of President Obama, Bill Clinton, Duval Patrick, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Bernie Sanders, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Gabriel Gomez (primary), Ed Markey, John Mccain(primary), Harry Reid, Patrick Leahey, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Henry Waxman, Lindsey Graham, Jeanne Shaheen, Charles Rangel, John Tierney, Niki Tsongas, Joe Kennedy, Claire Mccaskill, Mary Landrieu, Tom Harkin, John Conyers, Charles E. ...
Thursday all those Republicans who obstruct every Obama nomination were stumbling all over each other to vote to confirm the conservative American jobs killer Obama named as U.S. Trade Rep, Michael Froman. Corporate America was popping the champagne bottles. The nomination passed 93-4-1, only Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Joe Manchin and Carl Levin voting against one of Obama's worst picks for anything ever. (Barbara Boxer voted "present.")
Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): VA Backlog Improving: The Department of Veterans Affairs reduced the number of backlogged disability claims by about 15 percent in recent weeks, The Associated Press reported.

Carbon Tax: President Barack Obama plans to announce his support for limiting carbon dioxide emissions. Sens. Sanders and Barbara Boxer recently proposed a $20 fee per ton of carbon dioxide, according to Forbes and The Hill. Sen. Dianne Feinstein plans to unveil legislation that would impose a $10 fee on each ton of carbon dioxide produced by the utility industry. Don’t Deport Danilo: Gov.

Glenn Beck, Michael Moore, Rush Limbaugh, Julian Assange, Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Bernie Sanders all actually agree on the something, that the NSA dragnet is unconstitutional. Although I think Rush is the least authentic and as soon as a Republican president comes in he will be all for it. Meanwhile, House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Barbara Boxer, and Dianne Feinstein all agree spying on all Americans is awesome.
Earlier this year, in February, Barbara Boxer and Bernie Sanders sponsored legislation in the US Congress to combat Global Warming related climate disruption. Does anyone know what has happened with that particular legislative effort? Thanks. Also in the news recently, Barbara Boxer has said that the recent extreme tornado and other severe weather events are what scientists have been warning about for decades — Global Warming caused extreme weather events. What is next? Continued government support for the fossil fuels industry? Or a genuine (and urgent) shift to clean sustainable renewable energy economy. Future generations depend on it. What do you think?
Bernie Sanders shared a link. Wednesday near Washington, DC. End Conflicts of Interest at the Fed: Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) today introduced legislation that would ban bankers from sitting on the boards of directors for 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks that regulate the financial industry. Co-sponsored by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Mark Begich (D-Alaska), the bill also would end the practice of letting bankers have a say in the selection of the Fed directors that regulate them. A companion measure was introduced in the House by Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.). Sanders said, “I think the American people would be shocked to learn that the CEOs of some of the largest banks in America are allowed to serve on the boards of the main agency in this country in charge of regulating these financial institutions – the Federal Reserve. Allowing banking industry executives to serve on the Fed’s boards and hand-pick its members and staff is a clear conflict of interest that must be eliminated.” Continue ...
Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): Citizens United: Maine became the 13th state to urge adoption of a constitutional amendment to reverse a 2010 Supreme Court ruling that struck down limits on campaign spending by corporations and wealthy individuals. The resolution supports an amendment proposed in March by Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Ted Deutch, according to The Bangor Daily News, The Raw Story, Politicus USA, and Truthout. American Oligarchy: Sen. Sanders says we've become an oligarchy. “If anything, that's an understatement,” Thom Hartmann wrote for Truthout. “Thanks to court rulings like Citizens United and the corruptive influence of money in politics, our corporations and corporate executives have become almost untouchable figures in society today, and that needs to change.” VA Benefits Logjam: VA documents reveal 65,000 widows, widowers, children and parents – triple the number during Obama’s first term – are waiting as long as 207 days – up from two months four years ...
"In the long three decades McCain has served in Washington DC, we can't find any time he's referred to any other colleagues, past or present, as "wacko birds." Not Nancy Pelosi. Not Barbara Boxer. Not Al Franken. Not Robert Byrd. Not Sheila Jackson Lee. Not Hank Johnson. Not Patrick Leahy. Not Robert Menendez. Not Bernie Sanders. Not Dennis Kucinich. Not Jim Wright. Not Anthony Weiner. Not Alan Grayson. Not Carol Moseley Braun. Not *** Durbin. Not Chuck Schumer. Not Harry Reid. No. The "wackos" are Rand Paul and Ted Cruz -- the two men who have single-handedly breathed new life into the moribund and wasted GOP brand. Moribund and wasted no thanks to the abysmal political skills (or lack thereof) of McCain and his ilk."
The Cost of Climate Change: The Brookings Institution said Tuesday that a Carbon Tax could reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lessen federal budget shortfalls. The National Association of Manufacturers, meanwhile, released a study that found a Carbon Tax would hurt the economy. Sen. Bernie Sanders disputed the manufacturers’ lobby. He pointed to ways his legislation on Climate Change would help business, create jobs and save billions of dollars spent on disaster relief. “The price that America cannot afford to pay is the price of doing nothing to reverse Global Warming,” he said. Sanders recently introduced Climate Change legislation that is co-sponsored by Sen. Barbara Boxer, chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. Continue reading here:
Global Warming A measure that Sen. Bernie Sanders introduced Thursday would tax carbon emissions and use 60 percent of that money on rebates to make up for the expected spike in utility bills.

'Carbon Fee & Dividend' Bill Introduced to Battle 'Planetary Emergency' of Climate Change - Jon Queally, staff writer The day after two new opinion polls revealed overwhelming public support for "significant action on tackling Climate Change"—and several days ahead of a planned climate rally in Washington billed as the "largest in US history"—two Senators on Thursday announced their plans for new legislation that would, among other provisions, include a carbon fee and dividend component designed to incentivize a move away from fossil fuels and towards a more sustainable energy system in the United States. A press conference held by Sen.Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), and attended by leaders from environmental and consumer advocacy groups, was held on Capitol Hill to explain the contents of the two bills drafted and the thinking driving the proposals. "I fear very much that our children, grandchildren and great- grandchildren are going to look back on this period in history and ask ...
ou hear it often from figures of the left like Matt Taibbi and Bernie Sanders how crucial it is to have a serious discussion about breaking up the "too big to fail" banks. A few months ago Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) did an outstanding op-ed in the Washington Post about it. A month before, his proposal to withdraw taxpayer support of these banks, which have become little more than casinos, garnered 33 votes in the Senate, mostly progressives like Sanders, Jeff Merkley, Tom Harkin, Barbara Boxer, Tom Udall, Russ Feingold, and Pat Leahy but also from dyed-in-the-wool conservatives Tom Coburn ((R-OK) and Richard Shelby (R-AL), Ranking Republican on the Senate Banking Committee.
Wanna know who the true progressives in the Senate are? DOMA is a great barometer. No one has worked harder on its repeal than Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), an original co-sponsor of the Respect for Marriage Act.
