Bernie Sanders 1 day ago:   Thursday Jun 30 - 11:33am President Biden is absolutely right. Senate Democrats must end the filibuster and codify the right to an abortion NOW. If you allow the broken rules of the Senate to stand in the way of guaranteeing basic rights for our people, you don’t really stand for those rights. https://t.co/WMiXeWa34m Bernie Sanders 1 day ago:   Wednesday Jun 29 - 10:50pm At a time when half of older Americans have no retirement savings and are worried about their ability to retire with dignity and millions of seniors are living in poverty, our job is not to cut Social Security. Our job must be to expand Social Security. https://t.co/zVX9tQtDI6 Bernie Sanders 2 days ago:   Wednesday Jun 29 - 11:47am The American people are sick of airlines ripping them off, canceling flights at the last minute and delaying flights for hours on end.

Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Monday Jun 20 - 4:43pm In the French elections, given the choice between progressives who want to increase taxes on the rich, or right-wing extremists who are viciously anti-immigrant, the pro-business "centrist" party of Macron just couldn't make a choice.
