Some issues with Clinton

A few right off the top of my head on how she’s changed her tune. She used to back the TPP, now she doesn’t. She used to back the Keystone Pipeline, now she doesn’t. She refused to back a new Glass-Steagall bill, now she does. She used to want to raise the minimum wage to only $12, not she agrees with $15. She used to block breaking up the big banks, now she supports it. She fought making college tuition free and now backs it. She used to support the TPP, now doesn’t.
So OUR Bernie movement changed her tune on all those issues. Sure, we can say she doesn’t really mean it, she did it only to get the progressive vote. But it’s up to us to make her implement those policies, for indeed it takes a village to ensure we get what we need.

A few still remain that needs adjustment, like backing Israel at all costs and selling fracking. And backing war at the least provocation. And taking money from Wall Street.  And trading in money for deals via the Clinton Foundation. So we still have work to do.
