Hillary Clinton’s Single-Payer Pivot Greased By Millions in Industry Speech Fees

This is a perfect example of what I mean by the politics of extortion, or bribery that rules this country. My OP here refers to this cancer of despicable legal crime in American politics.

Hillary Clinton here is a perfect example of this. And another indication that this country will never be right.

Hillary Clinton’s sudden attack on Bernie Sanders’ single-payer health care plan is a dramatic break with Democratic Party doctrine that the problem with single-payer is that it is politically implausible — not that it is a bad idea.

Bernie pointed it out also regarding the millions she’s taking from Wall Street, as here is indicated she also has taken millions from the health care industry.

How is she supposed to be an objective arbiter of issues that affect these industries where she has taken millions from them just to give speeches?

Single-payer, the Canadian-style system in which the government pays for universal health care, takes the health insurance industry out of the picture, saving huge amounts of money. But the health insurance industry has become so rich and powerful that it would never let it happen.
That was certainly Clinton’s position back in the early 1990s, when she was developing her doomed universal coverage proposal for her husband, Bill.

But in the ensuing years, both Clintons have taken millions of dollars in speaking fees from the health care industry. According to public disclosures, Hillary Clinton alone, from 2013 to 2015, made $2,847,000 from 13 paid speeches to the industry.

American politics is a joke. Even Bernie Sanders should be advocating a TOTAL overhaul of a system of extortion and bribery that rules America, but even he is addicted to this elitist system of money and corruption.

This is no joke. The American society and civilization has reached a glass ceiling of power and powerlessness.

And those that have gotten their money and power, the 1 percent and their flunkies in the American political system have made it impossible to change the society from within or without.

Were doomed folks to a never ending litany of failure, abuse, and slavery.

….Unless this system of abuse can be miraculously abated form the inside by a super man or woman we are doomed.

The powers that be: the financial empires from Wall Street and the globalist corporations;
The Military Industrial Complex; the major Think Tanks, and the political mandarins, such as a Clinton, Obama, or a Trump, or Cruz, or McCain or any of them, all of them are doing nothing to halt the corrupt system of money that rules America and that will destroy America.

But that $2+ million in speaking fees won't at all influence who gets government contracts or other perks, right?

Of course it’s not just the Clintons. I didn’t say it was. But they are a prime example of the systems dysfunction

Their just a typical flunky family of the elite that are sucking off the system. There are many more; just the whole political class of vultures
