I've been waiting in dismay as Sanders had been giving Clinton a free pass on her duplicity. Finally, he is going after her and her hubby as one of the chief architects of the hollowing out of America's manufacturing industry calling her "Outsourcer-in-Chief" for her support of NAFTA and TPP.

For the repeal of Glass-Stegall and NAFTA the Clintons received $153 million in payments and now she wants to continue the legacy of the Clinton-Bush-Obama Dynasty which had had a net result of transferring almost 30% of the nation's wealth from the middle class to the top 1%. Under their duplicitous administrations they have totally reversed the last 80 years of middle class growth and have created the current Plutocracy that runs this country, which is now in full view in the Republican primaries.

If Sanders continues to hammer Queen, then I'll keep donating money took his campaign, but I want Her Royal Highness hammered, if not by Sanders then by Trump for what her family had done to the middle class that she turned her back on for blood money.

I don't care if Bernie wins the nomination or not, though it would be fabulous if he did. All I want is for him to speak what he knows is true, the Clintons and Obama totally betrayed the voters who voted for them and are totally in the pockets of the Billionaire Class. It wasn't cheap top buy them off. It cost the Billionaires $153 million, but there Billionaires got more than they could ever hope for from the duplicitous Clinton-Obama administrations.

I could almost wish for a Clinton primary win just to watch as Trump trashes the the Queen.

Clinton has plenty of skeletons in her closet. I think Bernie stood down in the beginning not thinking he could get any traction. You never know though because the timing on using "material" is really important. Voters forget what you said 3 months ago when they go to the polls. Timing is everything so this could be part of a strategy and not a part of a failing.

Anyone but Hillary or Cruz. Birds of a feather. Lying and cheating is where they excel. We have had enough.

Clinton has tons of skeletons and Trump knows everyone one of them. He is one of the ruling Plutocracy. He is one of those that had been pulling her strings. She knows that Trump is one of her former Puppet masters and knows everything

Bringing up NAFTA won't hurt her a bit. It did not hurt Obama when he said he was going to re negotiate NAFTA.

As we all know Obama has done nothing on NAFTA. Funny how history repeats itself and we have Trump talking about re negotiating treaties just like Obama in 2008. And people believe him Hillary will tickle the ears of the duped and convince them she was against it and will do something. Obama did nothing on NAFTA or any other trade agreement and had a second term.

But this is what Sanders had to say about these anti-worker trade deals in 1993:

He's been the strongest opponent of all of these terrible "free" "trade" deals (really anti-worker investment schemes meant to be used as a weapon against labor).

As the full affects of NAFTA become clearer, the electorate may be paying more attention to those who have been overtly supporting the destruction of America's manufacturing industry and have been directly responsible for outsourcing of the best jobs we had to foreign countries.

If Bernie doesn't get the audience for this message, then Trump sure will, and I relish the opportunity to watch her squirm as she is finally torn apart on the national stage. After that, she will have really earned the $153. My only regret is that Obama won't be on the stage with her. His grey hair would turn white.

Bernie is the real deal. Here has always been a strong supporter of the working class. I would expect nothing less from a fellow Brooklynite.

While Clinton does deserve his share of blame for signing NAFTA, calling him the chief architect is a bit of a stretch. It was negotiated before he took office and ratified during his term by congress with the majority of support coming from republicans.

Similarly with the repeal of Glass-Steagall, the legislation was written by a trio of republican legislators and passed a republican controlled House and Senate. To try to place full responsibility for the repeal on Clinton, and by extension democrats, is naked partisanship.
