Sen Fenistein Supported by Health Insurers; Opposes Medicare for All
by Register Peace & Freedom or Green
Tuesday May 2nd, 2017 8:38 PM
California Senator Dianne Feinstein, age 83, with a newly installed pacemaker, is running for her fifth full Senate term with donations from the health insurers, drug companies and a doctor trade organization, which explains why she opposes Medicare for All. It is time California voters retire Senator Feinstein as Medicare for All is very popular in California, and in Feinstein’s hometown of San Francisco. She is not better than the Republicans; she is the same.

In the House of Representatives, there are 108 co-sponsors of HR 676, the Medicare for All bill, including 24 from California (NOT Rep Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco).
See https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/676/cosponsors?q=%7B%22cosponsor-state%22%3A%22California%22%7D

California has 54 Congressional districts. See

Senator Feinstein does not support any senate version of Medicare for All because she is bought and paid by the insurance and drug industries. She is also a millionaire war profiteer who first brought the Navy’s Blue Death horrifying flights to heavily populated San Francisco during the military recruiting show known as Fleet Week, which is how San Francisco celebrates Columbus Genocide Week. For more on her war profiteering, see http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article12106.htm

She is also always pro-Israel, and was, of course, one of the 100 Senators, along with Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris (California’s other Senator), to sign the April 27, 2017 letter to the UN supporting Nazi Trump’s UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s statement that “It is the UN’s anti-Israel bias that is long overdue for change.” See https://www.rubio.senate.gov/public/_cache/files/f6c7c142-8655-4c34-907b-ffe91b033f34/83A98BDD8379F7A35D6207DCB0D74B38.4-27-2017-rubio-coons-ltr-to-unsg-re-israel.pdf

Senator Feinstein has called whistleblower Edward Snowden a traitor. She opposed Prop 64 on the November 2016 California ballot, legalizing the recreational use of marijuana, which passed with 55% of the vote.

She is a pillar of the Democratic Party and in 2012, when she last ran for US Senate, she received 62% of the vote. San Francisco gave her 88% of the vote in that election. This is politely known as robot voting.

We need to prepare now for the November 2018 election. It is about time the voters of California stop being robots and think about what is important to them. If Medicare for All is important to you, then you have to support either Peace & Freedom or the Green Party, the only 2 parties that support Medicare for All. You can register online for either one of these 2 pro Medicare for All, pro-peace, pro-labor, pro-environment parties at https://covr.sos.ca.gov/?language=en-US
