Tell Ted Cruz: “Repeal your own Obamacare first, hypocrite!”

Yup, sounds like Cruz:

———————————–

Remember when Ted Cruz filibustered for 21 hours against the Obamacare and caused a government shutdown? Now that he is in need of a new insurance plan, guess where he’s turning…the Obamacare exchange.

That’s right. After Cruz’s wife decided to take a leave of absence from her cushy Goldman Sachs jobs, the Cruz family was forced to find a new health insurance plan. And he is shopping for it on the same federal exchange set up by the Affordable Care Act (aka, “Obamacare”).

The hypocrisy is mind blowing. He literally announced this the day after he launched a campaign for president — with repeal of Obamacare as his top agenda item.

The Affordable Care Act is working exactly as it was intended: providing an option for families when they need care –> including the Cruz family. How can Ted Cruz continue to advocate for its repeal?

Sign the petition: Tell Ted Cruz he’s a hypocrite, and to stop trying to repeal healthcare for millions, when his own family is using it. Tell him: “Repeal your own Obamacare first, hypocrite!”

Tell the Forest Service: Shut down Nestle’s Illegal Water Pumping in California

Seriously?  Crazy:

———–

While California is currently in the midst of the worst drought it has ever faced, the multi-national Nestle Corporation is pumping tens of millions of gallons of water a year — on a permit that expired in the 1980s.  

Why was this allowed to happen? The U.S. Forest Service said their permit system has been too backlogged to notice Nestle was working on an expired permit.

Sign your name and tell the U.S. Forest Service to shut down Nestle’s unregulated water pumping IMMEDIATELY.

California’s drought is bad — really bad. It’s estimated that the Golden State only has enough water to sustain itself for one more year. But while residents and farmers are living under strict water usage limits, Nestle — the nation’s largest bottled water producer — has been pumping between 50-80 million gallons of water a year from the Sacramento region alone.  A drought of epic proportions, and what little water there is is being bottled and shipped elsewhere — and sold at an enormous profit.

The kicker? Their permit to pump water expired in 1988.

Gov. Jerry Brown declared the drought a state of emergency. California residents have been told to cut their water usage by 20 percent or face huge fines. Nestle on the other hand, is only paying 65 cents per 450 gallons they take from the state — a tiny fraction of what they sell it for once bottled.

It gets worse: California doesn’t have any laws limiting the amount of water drawn from groundwater. In the Coachella Valley, it’s estimated that Nestle draws 2OO,OOO,OOO gallons of water a year.

To put that in perspective — California’s entire grain industry only uses 69 million gallons of water a year.

Sign your name and demand U.S. Forest Service shut down Nestle’s unregulated water pumping>>
