Bernie Sanders 2 months ago:   Sunday Apr 2 - 11:00am Why are the American people angry? Maybe it has something to do with the largest producer of eggs in America increasing its profits by 718% last quarter after doubling the price of eggs and reporting ZERO cases of avian flu. We must break up big Ag & enact a windfall profits tax. Bernie Sanders 2 months ago:   Saturday Apr 1 - 9:22pm Instead of negotiating a first union contract as required by law, Starbucks has chosen to double down on its illegal union busting by firing Alexis Rizzo, a union leader in Buffalo who worked for Starbucks for 7 years. That is beyond unacceptable. Ms. Rizzo must be reinstated.

It's an utter disgrace that children in America today are going to school afraid of being shot and killed. We can't allow this epidemic of gun violence to continue. How many more have to die before Congress acts? Bernie Sanders 2 months ago:   Monday Mar 27 - 12:25pm I applaud the hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens peacefully protesting against their extreme government's actions.

Bernie Sanders 2 months ago:   Friday Mar 24 - 3:40pm I stand in solidarity with Los Angeles school staff and teachers @SEIULocal99@UTLAnow. $25,000/yr is not a salary a worker can live on.

As a result of a strong grassroots movement Sanofi has become the third company to substantially lower the price of insulin. We are making progress but more must be done. Americans must no longer pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. Bernie Sanders 2 months ago:   Tuesday Mar 14 - 8:18pm In America, if you're a wealthy vulture capitalist with over $250,000 in uninsured deposits at a loosely regulated bank the federal government will guarantee that your money is safe in a weekend. If you have no health insurance and get cancer, you're on your own. Unacceptable. Bernie Sanders 2 months ago:   Tuesday Mar 14 - 2:16pm Thanks to grassroots pressure Eli Lilly and Novo Nordisk have now cut the price of insulin. That is good news and Sanofi must follow suit. But much more needs to be done. We will soon hold a hearing on the need to guarantee insulin at an affordable price to everyone who needs it. Bernie Sanders 2 months ago:   Tuesday Mar 14 - 1:12pm 5 years ago I helped lead the effort against the bank deregulation bill that led to the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank.

Bernie Sanders 2 months ago:   Friday Mar 10 - 2:26pm While the pharmaceutical industry makes billions in profits, Americans are dying and suffering because they cannot afford the outrageous cost of their medicine.
