Bernie Sanders 20 hours ago:   Wednesday Oct 20 - 2:05pm What is the worst that would happen if we showed working people that their government can deliver for them, and not just those at the top? It would show working people that DEMOCRACY WORKS! A democracy which delivers for its people, the worst nightmare of the ruling class.

Do we listen to 1,500 pharmaceutical industry lobbyists telling us to let them continue to rip off the American people, or do we listen to tens of millions of Americans who tell us we should lower drug prices in this country?

Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Sunday Oct 10 - 3:23pm Question: why is it that the Build Back Better plan is so ruthlessly opposed by the entire ruling class of this country?
Answer: because with this bill, we are showing that government can deliver for the needs of working class people, not just billionaires and corporations. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Sunday Oct 10 - 11:00am I am more than a little tired of the pharmaceutical industry continuing to rip off the American people and forcing them to pay, by far, the highest prices on the planet for their prescriptions.

I believe that all Americans are entitled to a quality education, to affordable housing, to a decent standard of living.

The federal government is capable of standing up to powerful special interests and fighting for the needs of working class people. The billionaire class does not want it to happen. TOO BAD.
We're going to get it done. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 8:14pm Let me be as clear as I can be. The budget reconciliation bill is PAID FOR. How will that happen? We will finally end the days of tax loopholes and evasions by the billionaire class of this country. Yes, they will finally pay their fair share of taxes. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 8:05pm What 95% of the Democratic caucus wants and more importantly, what the American people want, is TWO pieces of legislation which yes, will not only rebuild our physical infrastructure, but will finally invest in the long-neglected needs of our country's working class. Let's do it. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 12:12pm Now is the time, finally, for Congress to stand up for working families and have the courage to take on the big money interests and wealthy campaign contributors who have so much power over the economic and political life of our country. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 12:12pm When the planet gets hotter, with unprecedented forest fires, drought, floods, extreme weather, and acidification of the oceans, when scientists tell us that we only have a few years to avoid irreparable harm to our planet, should we really continue to ignore this global crisis? Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 12:12pm Should we continue to have 600,000 Americans remain homeless, or should we finally begin building the millions of units of low income and affordable housing that we need? Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 12:12pm Should we, as an aging society, force older and disabled Americans into expensive nursing home care or should we expand home health care and allow them the opportunity to stay in their own homes? Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 12:12pm Should we continue being the only major country on earth not to guarantee paid family and medical leave? Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 12:12pm Should we continue a situation where many millions of seniors are unable to afford to go to a dentist to get treatment for their rotting teeth, or buy the hearing aids and eye glasses they need — or should we expand Medicare to cover those basic health care needs?

Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 12:12pm Should we continue to ignore the dysfunctionality of our child care system which forces millions of working families to spend 20-30% of their limited incomes on childcare and keeps over a million women out of the workforce? Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 12:12pm Should we end the $300 direct payments to working class parents which have cut childhood poverty in our country by half? Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 29 - 12:12pm For whatever reason, there are pundits out there who say we should compromise even more and cut back on addressing the long-neglected problems facing working families as well as climate change.
Please tell me where we should cut. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Tuesday Sep 28 - 2:51pm No infrastructure bill should pass without a $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill. That is the agreement that was made & that is the agreement that must be kept. Physical infrastructure is important, but the needs of working families & combatting climate change is more important. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Tuesday Sep 28 - 12:08pm Aging in America ought to mean aging with dignity. And right now, aging with dignity is very, very difficult for far too many of our elderly people. Let us realize the original goal and vision of Medicare and expand it to include dental, vision, and hearing care. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Monday Sep 27 - 6:02pm 18 million people in this country have reported being unable to fill a prescription because they couldn't afford the cost.

We must fight to become a nation of compassion and solidarity. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Sunday Sep 26 - 12:42pm Under our reconciliation bill, seniors would pay lower prices for prescriptions while receiving hearing, vision and dental care, AND we lower prescription drug costs for all Americans.

Today, how many Republicans object to spending trillions to benefit the working class of this country? ALL OF'EM. Pathetic. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Friday Sep 24 - 2:00pm In the midst of massive labor shortages in many parts of the country, creating a strong childcare system is truly a no-brainer.
Let's finally make child care affordable in this country.
Let's finally make pre-K for 3- and 4-year-olds free.
Let's finally invest in the children. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Friday Sep 24 - 10:34am Adding dental, vision and hearing benefits to Medicare is supported by 84% of the American people.
It is supported by 89% of Democrats.
It is supported by 79% of Republicans.
This is what the American people want.
This is what we must deliver to them. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Thursday Sep 23 - 8:19pm To my mind, it is a bit embarrassing that our great country is the only major country on the planet not to guarantee paid family and medical leave.
Let us pass the reconciliation bill and finally put an end to that international embarrassment once and for all. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Thursday Sep 23 - 5:40pm In America, elderly people should not be walking around without teeth in their mouth and not be able to afford to go to a dentist. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Thursday Sep 23 - 1:25pm Should we tell young people of this country, 'sorry, taking on the crisis of climate change just isn't that important'?
Should we tell working families, 'sorry, we're not going to make child care affordable'?
$3.5 trillion IS the compromise. Let's get this done. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Thursday Sep 23 - 11:30am Why is it that the people of Canada can purchase a vial of insulin for around $12, while just 2 miles away in Detroit, Americans are charged $98.70?
I'll tell you why — because we are the only major country which does not negotiate drug prices. Those days are coming to an end. https://t.co/TqTSX5FZup

Bernie Sanders 4 weeks ago:   Wednesday Sep 22 - 6:06pm It is no great secret that in America, it is not the United States Congress that regulates the pharmaceutical industry.

Does that make any sense to anyone?
