Where Does Michael Bennet Stand On the Issues?

  • 7 Comments
  • by: madmike

Wow!  I can’t believe that Michael Bennet would say these things.

Here are some of the issues I’ll fight for as your Colorado U.S. Senator

• End endless wars

• Adopt single payer national health insurance

• Cut the huge, bloated, wasteful military budget

• No to nuclear power, solar energy first

• Aggressive crackdown on corporate crime and corporate welfare

• Open up the Presidential debates

• Adopt a carbon pollution tax

• Reverse U.S. policy in the Middle East

• Repeal the Taft-Hartley anti-union law

• Adopt a Wall Street securities speculation tax

• Put an end to ballot access obstructionism designed by elites to exclude people and control election outcomes

• Work to end corporate personhood

• Defend, Restore and Strengthen the Civil Justice System

• Increase minimum wage to $15 an hour

• Make college free

• Equal pay for women

• Pathway to citizenship

• End foreign aid to countries except for humanitarian crisis

• Abolish nuclear weapons

• Ban on fracking

• Vote against the Trans Pacific Partnership

• Get America off fossil fuel by 2050 and make the Paris Summit COP21 agreement binding

• Reject Super PAC, Corporation and special interest funds

Tax Reform Issues:

• Enforcing stiffer penalties for offending institutions, including revoking the corporate charters of accounting and law firms and banks that facilitate the hiding of global wealth;

• Crack down on U.S. jurisdictions like Delaware, Wyoming and Nevada whose laws allow shell corporations to hold and transfer wealth anonymously;

• Creating an independent global commission on tax dodging that has the subpoena power to investigate and bring transparency to this global shadow banking system;

• And institute a global tax on all earnings by US-based multinational corporations.

Aw, shucks!!  I was mistaken.  Michael Bennet didn’t say these things.  Arn Menconi, the Green Party candidate for Colorado Senate did.  Who knew?!!!

  1. how many votes do you suppose Mr. Menconi will earn? In the 2012 election, Green party candidates for Senate apparently won 212,103 votes – in all their races nation-wide.

    In 2010, Bennet's previous run, candidate Bob Kinsey got 2.1% of the vote, about 38,000 votes. Voting FOR the Green is a long way from being assured you will get the Green.

  2. Even if I thought your Green twit knew WTF he was talking about, are you really going to pretend that voting for him would get anybody anything? You may as well vote for my cat. She's old, wise and very pretty and has just as much chance of winning. That's her in "my" pic.
