Bernie Sanders will get corruption out of politics

Wall Street’s favorite Democrat, Hillary Clinton responded to an assertion from Sanders — concerning big money donors that give her vast sums of campaign cash — by attacking him for trying to “impugn my integrity.” Then she stooped to Republican lows, claiming that she took Wall Street contributions because the terrorists struck America. Hillary Clinton cannot be believed and her ‘trust issues’ endanger the Democratic Party in a November election and with the Republicans running this year, the world is at risk.

“Many of the rich and powerful in the financial industry — among them, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman, Tom Nides, a powerful vice chairman at Morgan Stanley, and the heads of JPMorganChase and Bank of America — consider Clinton a pragmatic problem-solver not prone to populist rhetoric,” according to William D. Cohan, author of “Money and Power: How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World.”

Bill Clinton made former Goldman Sachs head Robert Rubin head of his economic council and then Treasury Secretary, and joined Rubin in driving banking deregulation — repeal of Glass-Steagall, prohibitions on regulating derivatives and more. Wall Street invested heavily in Hillary’s Senate race. And as senator, Hillary defended their interests, including a vote for the deplorable Bankruptcy Reform Act that favored the banks’ credit card operations over consumers.

Wall Street has proved a leading donor to the Clinton Foundation and helped to build the Clintons’ personal fortunes. In 2013 alone, Hillary made over $3 million personally from giving speeches to various Wall Street forums. Wall Street banks and investment houses made up a third of her total speech income, while providing some $17 million in campaign contributions over the years.

During her debate with Sanders, Hillary Clinton declared that she ‘represented Wall Street’ while she was a US Senator. Clinton voted for the Iraq War and the TARP bailout. Now, she refuses to pledge to break up banks that are too big to fail and Wall Street is one of her biggest sources of campaign money.

This is not just about Hillary Clinton, however. Establishment Democrats up and down the ballot stand in the way of bold, progressive action on issues that influence the lives of working families, senior citizens and children who deserve a bright future.

Our endorsement of Sanders mirrors the deep desire among voters for an economy and political system that responds to ordinary Americans. In November, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that 69% of voters in both parties “feel angry because our political system seems to only be working for the insiders with money and power, like those on Wall Street or in Washington, rather than working to help everyday people get ahead.”

Bernie Sanders is calling for a political revolution in America, and that means he will need like-minded men and women to run for Congress and win! It requires a massive change in dozens or hundreds of down ballot races for mayor, city council, township committee and county offices. We need you to run, volunteer as a campaign manager or contribute money to move this revolution forward. Help Democrats for Change now to provide the foundation to follow Bernie Sanders’ bold leadership.


Washington, D.C. — Citing the need for a candidate who will break with politics-as-usual and fight for America’s working people, the Communications Workers of America (CWA) voted Thursday to endorse U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders for president in the 2016 election. With 700,000 members, CWA is one of the largest unions in the U.S.

The decision followed a 3-month democratic process, including hundreds of worksite meetings and an online vote by tens of thousands of union members on which candidate to endorse.

“CWA members have made a clear choice and a bold stand in endorsing Bernie Sanders for President,” said CWA President Chris Shelton. “I am proud of our democratic process, proud of CWA members, and proud to support the candidate whose vision for America puts working families first. Our politics and economy have favored Wall Street, the wealthy and powerful for too long. CWA members, like voters across America, are saying we can no longer afford business as usual. Bernie has called for a political revolution – and that is just what Americans need today.”

CWA’s 700,000 members represent a cross-section of America’s workers, working in industries spanning telecommunications, airlines, media and broadcast journalism, health care, public service, and manufacturing. The top issues motivating the endorsement of Senator Sanders – taking on the big banks and Wall Street, providing our children with debt-free higher education, getting big money out of politics, rebuilding the labor movement, stopping job-killing trade deals, affordable health care, and retirement security – reflect the priorities cited by our members and all working Americans nationwide ahead of the 2016 election.

Shelton continued : “Bernie Sanders stands with working families against corporate greed, against Wall Street and the big banks, against politics as usual. He stands against the flood of money in politics that’s corrupting our democracy and attacking the right to vote. He knows that we have to take on the rich and powerful special interests to turn around this economy and end the 40 years of stagnant wages that working families have endured.

“He’s the candidate who can do it, and we are going to help him. When CWA endorses a candidate it is just the beginning. Our 700,000 members are fired up, and we are going to work overtime to elect Bernie Sanders as the next President of the United States. ”

CWA members’ endorsement of Sanders mirrors the deep desire among voters for an economy and political system that responds to ordinary Americans. In November, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that 69% of voters in both parties “feel angry because our political system seems to only be working for the insiders with money and power, like those on Wall Street or in Washington, rather than working to help everyday people get ahead.”

CWA members have played a significant role in driving turnout in past elections. In 2012, tens of thousands of CWA member volunteers worked on national and state campaigns and for critical ballot initiatives. CWA had ground operations in 38 states, and CWA member-activists played a major role in Florida, Colorado, Virginia, Missouri, New Mexico, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

CWA has more than 300,000 active and retired members in the states that will hold primaries between now and April 1. In California, Texas, New York, New Jersey, and Ohio, where CWA has its largest numbers of members, activists are engaged in worksite actions, staffing phone banks, and signing up new contributors to CWA’s political program ahead of the 2016 election.
