Sanders floats leveraging aid to Israel to push for policy changes with Palestinians

Sanders went further in his willingness to place conditions on aid than four other 2020 Democratic contenders who spoke at the J Street conference over the past two days.

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro expressed openness to conditioning aid so that U.S. assets would not be used for building or annexing West Bank settlements, while Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) refrained from saying they would place any conditions on military aid to Israel.

Kamala Harris… Jan 21st
Context: Make no mistake: Medicare for All would cut taxes for most Americans
https://t.co/OuYkmQvSav

…Bernie Sanders’s tax proposals would be enough to replace all existing private insurance premiums, while leaving 2.6% of national income to cover the uninsured and spend on other programs. Under such a plan, the 9 bottom deciles of the income distribution would gain income on average, as would the bottom of the top 10%. With smart new taxes-such as broad income taxes exempting low wages and retirees-it is possible to make the vast majority of the population win from a transition to universal health insurance.

  Context: Senator Harris: You really need to rethink your plan
to put private insurers in charge of Medicare
Harris’s plan won’t work and history will prove it.

Thread
https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1190247291019563008

Note: In this thread, Warren challenges some of the disingenuous arguments of those who oppose single payer. For example…

#MedicareForAll finally brings true choice to the health care system. The choice to see
the doctor you want, to get the prescriptions you need, pick the job or start that small
business you want without worrying about where your health insurance will come from.
https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1190247294521823232

Note: Many opponents use the word, choice, with respect to protecting for profit insurance. Contrast that with M4A / single payer…

Let’s get to the math! (All backed up by independent experts and economists.) First,
we’re going to rein in the waste, inefficiency, and corporate profiteering by insurance
and drug companies. And we’ll bring down out-of-control costs.
https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1190247296845434880

Note: Baker said Sanders’ transition plan might lead to inflation. So this should be interesting…

Achieving #MedicareForAll isn’t going to be easy, but I’m in this race to fight for American
families. In the coming weeks, I will also release a transition plan – and I will start lowering
health care costs and increasing coverage as soon as I’m sworn in as president.
https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1190247302532935680

2015: Obama Announces New Rule Limiting Water Pollution
https://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/28/us/obama-epa-clean-water-pollution.html

The rule is being issued under the 1972 Clean Water Act, which gave the federal government broad authority to limit pollution in major water bodies, like Chesapeake Bay, the Mississippi River and Puget Sound, as well as streams and wetlands that drain into those larger waters.

But two Supreme Court decisions related to clean water protection, in 2001 and in 2006, created legal confusion about whether the federal government had the authority to regulate the smaller streams and headwaters, and about other water sources such as wetlands.

E.P.A. officials say the new rule will clarify that authority, allowing the government to once again limit pollution in those smaller bodies of water – although it does not restore the full scope of regulatory authority granted by the 1972 law.

The E.P.A. also contends that the new rule will not give it the authority to regulate additional waters that had not been covered under the 1972 law.

“For the water in the rivers and lakes in our communities that flow to our drinking water to be clean, the streams and wetlands that feed them need to be clean too,” the E.P.A. administrator, Gina McCarthy, said in a written statement.

The focus of the conflict are California’s greenhouse gas emissions standards as they apply to passenger vehicles. By extension, these affect auto mileage standards, since making cars more fuel-efficient results in lower emissions.

Normally, such environmental regulations are reserved for the federal government. Congress, however, has waived the federal preemption as it applies to emissions by granting California the right to set its own rules, as long as they’re at least as stringent as the federal rules.

Plainly, the path to a single national standard runs through California. Not only are its rules followed by states comprising 40% of the car market, but the four companies that reached agreement with California account for nearly one-third of auto sales in the U.S. Either way you count, the states with the biggest car sales and four of the top 10 automakers in the U.S. market are already in accord. California’s initiatives arguably have all the momentum in effectively creating a national standard.
