Rents in the Seattle area are rising about four times faster than the national average and have topped $2,000 a month

Well, it looks like having nearly half of the delegates isn't enough to get access to the Democratic party. Between this and the #DNCLEAKS it's hard to see how anyone could support the Democratic party.

I admit Kshama Sawant's decisions do increase taxes, but Dori Monson is making a completely non-sequitur argument saying that higher taxes are driving ridiculous move in fees. I'm not talking rent, but the $400 administrative fee to move in, with $400 pet fee (in addition to a monthly pet rent), and 1st and last month's rent (easily reaching $5,000+). When all is said and done, you can easily expect to have a $7,000 in move in fees for a $2,700/month apartment in Seattle.

I think most of these fees are complete BS, and saying that she is at fault because she votes to spend money on public transit is just dumb.
KIRO Radio's Dori Monson said Seattle City Council woman Kshama Sawant needs to look in the mirror after her proposal to limit move-in fees for renters.

I have long believed that the media establishment was directly working with the DNC to promote Hillary, and now their own emails are telling the whole story as it happened.

This should be a crime... maybe even as bad a treason. These people are trying to distort the truth to drive our election with money.

Very well written argument. I clearly explains why it is so hard for Sanders supporters to get behind the Democratic Party.

The best we can do in influence people not to lose all hope and settle for the lesser of two evils. Sure, maybe Hillary will be president, but Congress is where the power is. We need to vote them out by looking for congressional leaders that support the agenda of the people.

One of the things I love about Bernie is that he has always said this, and his campaign mailing list is continually suggesting nominees that he supports.
