    Democratic California
    .
    To show you how bad it’s getting out there, just take the cost of a U-Haul from CA to Texas, it costs $1,400 for a family to move there and from Texas to CA, it only costs $400 for a family to move there.
    .
    You ask why is that happening, the U-Haul company can’t get enough trucks in CA to rent to these families who are leaving and other rental agencies are reaping the profits from all of these families leaving CA.

    The Democratic Presidential hopefuls concerning the costs of college
    .
    Every time to hear a Democratic Presidential hopeful talking concerning the costs of college they say it should be covered by the Government.
    .
    Now here’s the catch, seeing how high the costs of college are now, just think what it will be if these colleges can now charge the government for all of these students college costs.
    .
    And where do you think all of those Millions if not Billions are going to come from? It will come from the taxes that you and I pay each year.
    .
    And what do you think these college students will do if they have a free ride in college, they will say, hay, why not continue my time in college to as many years that they can get away with.

    Democrats Introduce Bill Allowing Shooting Victims To Sue Gun Industry
    .
    House and Senate Democrats introduced legislation Tuesday they say will allow victims of gun violence to have their day in court.
    .
    The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act aims to repeal federal protections blocking firearm and ammunition manufacturers, dealers and trade groups from most civil lawsuits when a firearm is used unlawfully or in a crime.
    .
    Those protections date to 2005, with the passage of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.
    .
    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., one of the bill's co-sponsors, said since PLCAA became law, state and federal courts have "dismissed numerous cases against the gun industry," adding that other cases were likely not brought at all.
    .
    Schiff, surrounded by members of gun violence prevention groups including Moms Demand Action, Brady and March For Our Lives, said the purpose of the legislation was to "correct the error Congress made" nearly a decade and a half ago.
    .
    "Responsible actors in the gun industry don't need this limitation on liability. And the irresponsible ones don't deserve it," Schiff told reporters at the announcement of the bill.
    .
    PLCAA was signed into law by then-President George W. Bush and championed by the gun industry, including the National Rifle Association.
    .
    Lawrence Keane of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a firearms trade association, told NPR his organization "will certainly oppose this legislation." He called the bill to repeal PLCAA "fundamentally unfair."
    .
    "You would no more charge or blame Ford or General Motors for drunk driving accidents," Keane said, adding that the current law is "working exactly how Congress intended it."
    .
    Keane and other supporters of the current law say it was passed as a way to ensure that manufacturers, dealers and distributors had protections from what they call "frivolous" lawsuits intended to bankrupt the gun industry.
    .
    "All we're doing through this proposal is giving victims of gun violence their day in court," said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., a co-sponsor of the Senate version of the bill. "Every other industry has to pay punitive damages if it intentionally and purposefully violates [a] standard of care" toward the community.
    .
    "That will provide a powerful incentive as it has done in tobacco, in automobiles, in pharmaceutical drugs, for safer products," Blumenthal added.
    .
    In March, the Connecticut Supreme Court overturned a lower court decision, ruling that Remington Arms could be sued under state law by the families of victims from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
    .
    The court said that Remington, the manufacturer of the rifle that was used in the 2012 attacks in Newtown, Conn., could be sued on the basis of how the company marketed the military-style weapon to civilians.
    .
    Blumenthal on Tuesday called it a "narrow victory for the Sandy Hook victims," adding that it allows families to "go back to the trial court and seek to prove their case. It was by no means a total victory for them."
    .
    The effort to repeal PLCAA by Democrats on Capitol Hill is not new.
    .
    Schiff first introduced the measure in 2013, and it has been reintroduced at least two other times without gaining traction.
    .
    Democratic lawmakers said momentum is now on their side, pointing to polling that shows 90% of Americans support universal background checks.
    .
    Supporters of the new PLCAA repeal also say that the NRA is in a far weaker position now than it was in 2005 because of recent allegations of financial mismanagement; investigations into the group, including one by the attorney general of New York; and inquiries by House Democrats looking into links between NRA officials and individuals with ties to Russia.
    .
    As with the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 and the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019, this new bill faces steep odds since the Senate, controlled by Republicans, has shown no appetite for taking up gun control legislation.
    .
    "It is a new day in Congress," said Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., who highlighted that Wednesday is the third anniversary of the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, where 49 people and the shooter died.
    .
    "We will not stop, regardless of the Senate majority leader [Mitch McConnell R-Ky.] ignoring the pleas of the American people."

    BERNIE’S BIG PLAN: Sanders Says His Healthcare Proposal Will ‘Absolutely’ Cover ALL Illegal Immigrants.
    .
    Vermont Senator and far-left presidential candidate Bernie Sanders confirmed this week that his socialized health care proposal will “absolutely” provide coverage to every single illegal immigrant in the United States.
    .
    Vermont Senator and far-left presidential candidate Bernie Sanders confirmed this week that his socialized health care proposal will “absolutely” provide coverage to every single illegal immigrant in the United States.
    .
    “We will organize the American people around the concept that all people in this country have the right to health care, and at the end of the day, we are going to win that struggle,” said Sanders during a recent speech.
    .
    “Senator, would you include the 11 million undocumented immigrants in America?” asked the moderator.
    .
    “Absolutely. When I talk about health care being a human right, the last time I heard that undocumented people are human beings,” he fired-back.
    .
    Bernie Sanders’ campaign released a new Democratic Socialist ‘Economic Bill of Rights’ weeks ago; saying all Americans should be provided with healthcare, education, a ‘good job,’ housing, secure retirement, and more.
    .
    “We need a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights:
    – The right to health care
    – The right to education
    – The right to a good job
    – The right to affordable housing
    – The right to a secure retirement
    – The right to a clean environment#DemocraticSocialism,” posted Josh Miller-Lewis, Sanders’ Digital Communications Director.
    .
    Sanders confirmed earlier this week that no one in America will be able to opt-out of his new $32 trillion healthcare plan.
    .
    Sanders was speaking with MSNBC when he was asked if satisfied Americans can choose to remain with their current healthcare provider.
    .
    “If I want to, can I opt out?” asked the interviewer.
    .
    “No,” Sanders said immediately. “It’s like social security. It’s like Medicare right now. It’s just an expansion of Medicare.”
    .

    My Thoughts:
    .
    Sander’s big old bleeding liberal socialist heart shows just how stupid he is. What you don’t hear him say is; who’s going to pay for all of this, but we all know it’s going to be us tax payers in the long run, but Bernie will never say that up front.
