    I mostly agree although Bernie Sanders is a socialist. Democrats have moved so far to the right that it's hard to even call them left wing.

    Do you know what psychobabble implies? That I am using the jargon of psychology to create a facade of understanding, but really have no understanding of the human mind or human behavior at all. I did no such thing. I simply explained the absurd inaccuracy of your post. There are no socialists in American politics and you only believe there are because you fundamentally misunderstand both capitalism and socialism.

    socialism is a disease and the main issue is how infected a given individual is

    She knows enough to pull the wool over the eyes of her supporters, which isn't saying much.

    People that are easily manipulated, easily influenced and short on the facts SO FAR seem to be her primary supporters.

    She's a liar, and as corrupt as they come.

    I remember now why I rarely contribute at these forums. It is because the level of discourse rarely rises above "Ahhhhhhhhh Socialism!!!!!" There are no socialists in mainstream American politics. This is a fact. If you do not understand this fact, you should stop freely giving out your opinion until this fact has sunk in.

    Cool story bro!! Do you care to add even the smallest amount of substance to your post? Like possibly providing an example of her being misinformed and your explanation for why it is misinformed. This place is called debate politics. Not random dude on the internet says stuff without facts, context, or argument forum. That is of no interest to anyone. No one cares about your opinion of her. At least not unless you can make a coherent and informed argument to back up that opinion.

    Is she a hypocrite?
    Along with favoring regulations written by corporate lobbyists only big business can afford to comely with; and raising the minimum wage so no middle class american can afford to employ anyone and compete with bigger businesses and increase their wealth- I would say yes she is an economically illiterate hypocrite.

    The EIB is a needed source of finance for small businesses, and also for large businesses that have a business model that doesn't fit the criteria of commercial banks. One thing most people don't realize, is that companies have to exhaust all commercial options before the EIB will get involved.

    The GOP rants against the EIB are ludicrous, as are the assertions that it's some kind of corporate welfare from some on the left. The EIB is one of the only parts of the federal government that has not only covered the costs of its existence, but is revenue positive - which if it wasn't part of the government would be called a profit. And, as I said before in other words, the EIB is not taking any money out of the private sector banking system, because they only get involved when all other commercial options fail to provide the needed financing.

    Together with US State Department programs to assist US companies with import requirements in foreign countries, the EIB has created jobs, stimulated local US economies and helped to build this country in an every growing global economy.

    As a fiscal conservative, the EIB makes more than just fiscal sense, it is good sound government to stimulate job growth and the economy.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I give her credit for at least calling attention to important problems in the financial sector. Who else is doing so?

    Thank you B--I miss talking with you--a common sense GOP who doesn't run from his brand.
    I've seen you get lit up by far righties for this kind of post--not towing their line--yet they deny who they vote for.

    I can only go by what my friends who are small businessmen tell me--you have made an excellent case I could never make for the EIB.
    These anti-people are just blinded by their feelings against Sen. Warren .
