Sen. Bernie Sanders Statement on the Debt Deal

Sunday, July 31, 2011

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Statement on Senate Debt Deal:

“The Republicans have been absolutely determined to make certain that the rich and large corporations not contribute one penny for deficit reduction, and that all of the sacrifice comes from the middle class and working families in terms of cuts in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, LIHEAP, community health centers, education, Head Start, nutrition, MILC, affordable housing and many other vitally important programs.

“I cannot support legislation like the Reid proposal which balances the budget on the backs of struggling Americans while not requiring one penny of sacrifice from the wealthiest people in our country.  That is not only grotesquely immoral, it is bad economic policy.”

Sanders is the last, remaining moral voice in the U.S. Senate.

    Good for Bernie Sanders. We need fifty more like him.

  2. Sen. Bernie Sanders called for a Democratic primary challenger much to the horror of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

    I’ve urged Mr. Sanders to challenge Obama but, it’s probably unlikely.

    I wish Bernie Sanders would run. I’d vote for him in a heartbeat.
