Kamala Harris – the new Hillary?


FEC financial summary


On the Issues:



Here’s what she says: ” I’m running to fight for Medicare for All, universal pre-K, debt-free college & more. To guarantee middle-class families a pay increase of up to $500/mo with the largest working-class tax cut in decades — paid for by reversing this Admin’s gifts to big corporations & the top 1%.”

Does what they say really matter? (Example: “Hope and Change”.) It appears Harris has hired Hillary campaign workers* and, like Obama, is being funded by Wall Street. What more information do you need?

*Watch for the “misogynist” rants to begin again, directed at those who don’t support Harris.

“She’s running for president as a progressive, but as attorney general of California, she criminalized truancy — making it a crime for kids to be late for school, and dragging into the criminal justice system even more disproportionately low income, predominantly black and latino families. She’s overlooked the misconduct of her prosecutors and fought to uphold their wrongfully secured convictions. She defended California’s choice to deny sexual reassignment surgery to a trans inmate, and in 2014, appealed a federal judge’s holding that the death penalty was unconstitutional.”
