The Fix Is In: Brown administration approves environmental documents for Delta Tunnels
Adam Scow, California Director of Food & Water Watch, said the certification “is very troubling, though hardly surprising, for Governor Brown to approve of building massive new tunnels that won’t fix any of California’s water problems.” “This project would waste $25 to $67 billion, with interest, of taxpayer money and devastate the San Francisco Bay ecosystem. It would unfairly burden Southern Californians with higher water bills at a time when we must repair the aging and crumbling pipes ...

SEIU 1021 Nato Green Doing Damage Control For SEIU? Opposes Single Payer In CA
Comedian and SEIU 1021 consultant has written an op ed opposing pushing for single payer in California. He says that instead people should push for the national bill 562. The California SEIU taking their cue from the bosses at Kaiser are opposing single payer in California. The corporate unionists that Nato works for are in bed with the bosses at Kaiser and many of their own members such as home care workers cannot even get healthcare. Nato should know better but maybe his job is more importa...

California Scheming: Democrats Betray Single-Payer Again
Nothing better illustrates the political bankruptcy of the Democratic Party—for all progressive intents and purposes—than California State Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon’s announcement on Friday afternoon that he was going to put a “hold” on the single-payer health care bill (SB 562) for the state, effectively killing its passage for at least the year....

Fishing and Conservation Groups Sue to Block Delta Tunnels Project
“This version of the tunnels will wipe out California’s salmon fishery and the families and communities that rely on salmon,” said John McManus, executive director of the Golden Gate Salmon Association. “The problem is the state basically allowed the water users to design the tunnels and they’re so huge that the federal fish and wildlife agencies are basically throwing up their hands. It’s like they let the fox design the hen house so of course he made it easy to rob.”...

You will rarely find deep investigative journalism like this in the mainstream media or most "alternative" media. The deep relationship between the MLPA Initiative and ...
