I didn't know Warren is taking corporate donations from Kaiser Health.

And I didn't know 'Pow Wow Chow' was a real thing, Warren actually contributed a recipe to a cookbook by that title.

Welp, I don't think Warren is horrible, but my respect for her just went down a few notches.

Lastly, Jimmy Dore is awesome -- he really knows how to lay out the issues and very quickly get to the core of the situation.

She voted for Trump increase military spending twice, she was absent to vote for the 3rd increase
because she was at the Dem debate the day before

Because there are enough ------- schittheaps who will vote for Trump.

That's the only reason that counts.

Seriously - HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW THESE THINGS? The Pow Wow Chow thing has been a joke for year. Typical Dem, clueless.

LOL. More like you are glued to MSNBC and they didn't want to tell you this fact when the whole Pocahontas meme was making its rounds. Oh yeah, that great Native American recipe that Lyin' Liz contributed was her old Oklahoma family recipe for CRABCAKES. You probably still believe Lyin Liz didn't have an advantage applying to work at Harvard based on her 'minority' status - despite them publicizing that she was their first Native American faculty member.

The pow wow chow recipe book was a detail that didn't burn into my consciousness, as it obviously has with you. You even know of the specific recipe -- all which says everything about you and what you think is important.

I don't obsess over Warren and her dopey assertion over her supposed Native American heritage, again, unlike you.

Get a life, doofus.

Forbes: Top U.S. "Non-Profit" Hospitals & CEOs Are Racking Up Huge Profits

www.forbes.com

... the top paid "special advisor" and former CEO at Memorial Hermann* in Houston, Texas made $18.6 million. In St. Louis, Missouri, the chief at Ascension Health* made $13.6 million; the CEO at the Kaiser Foundation* in Oakland, California made $10.7 million; and $10.6 million went to the top paid executive of Northwestern Memorial HealthCare in Chicago, Illinois.

When summing the last four years of pay (2014-2017), each of these highly compensated executives - who made more than $10 million in 2017 alone - earned an extraordinary amount of compensation: Ascension CEO ($59.1 million); Kaiser CEO ($29.8 million); Banner CEO ($29.6 million); Advocate Health CEO, based in Downers Grove, Illinois ($27.8 million); Memorial Hermann Special Advisor/CEO ($27.3 million); and Northwestern Memorial COO ($15.3 million).


As you can see Kaiser is mentioned prominently in the above link of "non-profit hospitals".

These "non-profit hospitals" should not be paying the CEOs zillions of dollars, they should be taking all that money and reinvesting into their communities to help increase healthcare access and to help integrate their healthcare operations with local social support systems -- per the tenants of the healthcare discipline 'Population Health Management'.

Ah ..... theres the rub isn't .... Kaiser is $79Billion dollar a year company ...

It is funny though you only mention the CEO's, why not the doctors (+270K), surgeons($424,493), nurses .

No you go after the EVIL CEO.... it fascinating watching you spin things ...eventually you need to go after medical professionals, until you do, you are just blowing smoke.

Bernie took money from them too. Granted not as much as Warren did:

Bernie took money from them in 2016 as well, not as much as Clinton but more than Warren (who took next to nothing that year) and more than Trump:

Did it just drop for Bernie as well?

"Lastly, Jimmy Dore is awesome -- he really knows how to lay out the issues and very quickly get to the core of the situation."

I only watched the first few minutes, enough to confirm the $15,059 figure he had circled was the same figure I was looking at for 2018.

Warren did take more than Sanders in 2012:

The Open Secrets link states clearly states the following ...

This table lists the top donors to this candidate in the 2016 cycle.The money came from the organizations' PACs;their individual members, employees or owners; and those individuals' immediate families. At the federal level, the organizations themselves did not donate, as they are prohibited by law from doing so.

Bernie led all candidates with small donors contributing ~ $27.

I've never understood that either? How a left-leaning organization can adopt a name like the Young Turks...and get away with it. I think if a right-wing group had done it, they would get eviscerated, and rightly so. Harldy different than calling yourself The Hitlerjugend.

Bernie's individual donors come from employees who are workers, I pointed this out in post #16.

If you don't believe me, Kaiser Health News recently tried to slam Bernie for taking $200 donations from TWO healthcare employees "who could be considered executives" ...

KHN: Sanders Calls On Candidates To Reject Donations From Health Industry: You Can't Change A Corrupt System By Taking Its Money'
khn.org

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) invited his fellow presidential candidates to join him in refusing to accept contributions over $200 from political action committees, lobbyists and executives of health insurance and drug companies.

But an ABC News review of FEC records identified at least three contributions of more than $200 from two individual donors who could be considered executives at companies in those fields.


Two individual employees who "can be considered executive". Wow, Bernie has really gone corporate -- hilarious ~

No doubt that Warren's campaign receives donations from individual healthcare workers, but Bernie practically gets ALL his campaign funding from individual workers and in this case, individual healthcare workers.

And, those donations Warren is taking from Kaiser are from donors representing the Kaiser corporation, plain and simple.

If you don't believe what I'm saying, Warren is already in bed with the Medical Device Industry ...

Elizabeth Warren Goes to Bat for Medical Device Industry

time.com

Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic star who just last week unveiled a bill targeting the profits of large drug makers, doesn't sound like much of a populist when it comes to another group of big health care corporations, the medical device manufacturers, many of which happen to be headquartered in the Senator's home state of Massachusetts.

Warren's coziness with those companies is now earning her criticism within her party, with one former Democratic Senate staffer describing some of her positions as "repulsive."


Yhe devil is always in the details -- and Jimmy Dore is spot on.

You understand that healthcare CEOs are raking in millions of dollars, and that's just the healthcare CEOs from "non-profit" hospitals.

Do you know the difference between a CEO and a worker?

"Do you know the difference between a CEO and a worker?"

Nope. Because there isn't a difference.

All other things being equal, a CEO is a worker. A paid employee.

And no, I don't really care. These individuals can be fired almost as easily as any other employee. It's not up to me (or you) to determine who a company should hire or fire.

That's as stupid as stupid can ever be possible.

Try looking up what "CEO" stand for.

Then there's the difference between workers wages and CEO salaries.

You're not dumb, you're just a hack -- no offense.

You yourself quoted the relevant information on the table with regard to Bernie. This would apply to Warren as well since it is the same damn table:

How hard is it to understand that who makes the donation is just as important, if not more important, as who the donor's represent?

Hillary took Wall Street money. Not from Chase Bank the corporation, but from the Chase Bank CEOs and hedge fund managers, understand? That's a world of difference to a $27 donation from a bank teller who work's at Chase Bank. I'm beginning to think you don't understand the difference.

And feel free to think Warren isn't in the tank for corporate money from the healthcare industry -- though her being cozy with the medical device industry says otherwise.

Here's the paragraph following the one you quote:

METHODOLOGY: The numbers on this page are based on contributions from PACs and individuals giving $200 or more. All donations were made during the 2016 election cycle and were released by the Federal Election Commission. Figures for the current election cycle are based on data released on June 10, 2019.
