Bernie Sanders 19 hours ago:   Wednesday Jun 23 - 6:18pm You're a working class mom with a new baby, and you live in Canada. You know how many days of paid leave you get to spend with your baby? 119.
If you're living just over the border in Detroit, you get ZERO days with your baby — in the richest country in the world. Unacceptable. Bernie Sanders 21 hours ago:   Wednesday Jun 23 - 3:52pm Republicans refusing to even debate protecting our democracy is a total outrage. We can disagree on issues, but we should not disagree on whether or not Americans have the fundamental right to vote. https://t.co/bMF9x7dYc1

It is time for them to pay their fair share. https://t.co/N50QpkSGSR

Massive income and wealth inequality.
No paid parental leave.
Astronomical child care costs.
90 million uninsured or underinsured.
Unaffordable prescription drugs.
Does this really sound like the richest country on earth? Bernie Sanders 1 day ago:   Tuesday Jun 22 - 2:08pm When we talk about democracy in America, we are talking about one person, one vote. What democracy is not about is a handful of billionaires using their wealth to buy our elections, or states suppressing the vote by denying poor people or people of color the right to vote. Bernie Sanders 2 days ago:   Tuesday Jun 22 - 12:23pm We cannot have a vibrant democracy unless we defend the right of all eligible voters to participate in our elections. That means stopping Republicans' voter suppression efforts. That means stopping the influence of dark money. That means passing the For the People Act. Bernie Sanders 2 days ago:   Tuesday Jun 22 - 9:10am New York City needs leadership that will fight for the needs of working class families, not the financial interests of developers and the wealthy elite.

Bernie Sanders 3 days ago:   Monday Jun 21 - 11:16am Beginning on July 15, working class families will start receiving monthly payments as part of the increased Child Tax Credit in the American Rescue Plan.
How will these payments impact you and your kids' lives? Bernie Sanders 3 days ago:   Monday Jun 21 - 9:57am Jeff Bezos' life during the pandemic:

Bernie Sanders 4 days ago:   Sunday Jun 20 - 1:33pm At a time of massive income and wealth inequality, when the very rich are becoming richer, when two people own more wealth than the bottom 40% of America, there is something absurd that you have billionaires out there who are paying ZERO in federal income taxes. Bernie Sanders 4 days ago:   Sunday Jun 20 - 1:08pm For decades now, the government has paid attention to the rich and the powerful. I think that now is the time to finally pay attention to the needs of the working class. https://t.co/UpQxEmyk1b

We can disagree on all kinds of issues, but taking away the rights of Americans to vote and to participate in our democracy is absolutely unacceptable. Period. Bernie Sanders 4 days ago:   Saturday Jun 19 - 7:29pm In 1965, half of all seniors over the age of 65 had no medical insurance. The passage of Medicare ended that injustice.
Now, in 2021, we can continue to fulfill the promise of Medicare by expanding it to include dental care, eyeglasses, and hearing aids. Let's get it done. Bernie Sanders 4 days ago:   Saturday Jun 19 - 2:33pm Right now, New Yorkers can elect leaders from district attorney to public advocate to city council who will fight for a New York that works for working families, not developers and the wealthy elite. Early voting is already underway and Election Day is Tuesday — go vote, NYC! https://t.co/oNzF72kmEx
Link to Image Bernie Sanders 5 days ago:   Saturday Jun 19 - 11:19am In my view, there is no compromise when it comes to protecting the right to vote. We must stop the onslaught of voter suppression and make it easier, not harder to vote in this country. Bernie Sanders 5 days ago:   Friday Jun 18 - 2:01pm While GOP legislatures are working overtime to deny Black Americans and young people the right to vote, this is what Mitch McConnell says: "I’ve taken a look at all the new state laws—none of them are designed to suppress the vote." That’s why we must pass the For the People Act. Bernie Sanders 6 days ago:   Thursday Jun 17 - 4:37pm Vision care is health care.
Dental care is health care.
Hearing care is health care.
That's why we must expand Medicare to cover dental care, eyeglasses, and hearing aids. Bernie Sanders 6 days ago:   Thursday Jun 17 - 2:46pm I do not think it is too radical an idea to say that keeping teeth in your mouth should not be a luxury. Medicare must be expanded to include dental care, eyeglasses, and hearing aids. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Wednesday Jun 16 - 4:02pm The way to rebuild the crumbling middle class in this country is by growing the trade union movement. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Wednesday Jun 16 - 10:20am That's $28 million MORE than Jeff Bezos paid in income taxes in 2007 and 2011. Yes, it is time for billionaires to pay their fair share of taxes. https://t.co/cdPZDzEyF2 Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Monday Jun 14 - 4:27pm Warren Buffett wealth growth, 2014-2018: $24.3 BILLION

Average working class American tax rate: 24.8%
Maybe, just maybe, billionaires should start paying their fair share of taxes. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Sunday Jun 13 - 11:01am What a shock! With friends in high places, the very rich avoid paying their taxes. Who would have guessed? This is why we need a tax on wealth. https://t.co/3mKUo3DFSJ Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Saturday Jun 12 - 2:20pm 400 richest Americans wealth in 1991: $288 billion

Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Friday Jun 11 - 7:38pm When we stand together against the existential threat of climate change, we can create a future where preserving our planet matters more than Big Oil’s profits. Grassroots power stopped Keystone XL, and it will #StopLine3.https://t.co/j8N7RtBDeD Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Friday Jun 11 - 2:48pm We must take on the greed of the pharmaceutical industry, allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices, and save taxpayers some $600 billion.

Let me be clear: doing nothing to take on this ugly ongoing surge of voter suppression is not an option. Bernie Sanders 2 weeks ago:   Monday Jun 7 - 6:33pm The clock is ticking. Every day that we delay bold action on climate change is one day closer for more droughts and forest fires, more heat waves, more flooding, more sea rising, more extreme weather. For the sake of future generations we must act NOW. Bernie Sanders 2 weeks ago:   Monday Jun 7 - 1:32pm In about a month's time, working class parents will start receiving direct monthly payments as part of the Child Tax Credit increase in the American Rescue Plan.
And you know how many Republicans voted for it? NOT ONE. And they claim to be the party of 'family values.' Absurd. Bernie Sanders 2 weeks ago:   Monday Jun 7 - 10:28am Here is a list of every single Republican who had the guts to vote in support of the American Rescue Plan:
There aren't any. We did it alone.
Meanwhile, how many Republican senators voted for Trump's $1.9 trillion tax giveaway to the rich? 51! Pathetic. Bernie Sanders 2 weeks ago:   Sunday Jun 6 - 12:14pm Here's a radical idea: majority rule. Not a single Republican voted to provide a $1,400 direct payment to the working class or a $3,000 Child Tax Credit. The Senate passed this important legislation with 51 votes. We must do the same with the American Jobs and Family plans. Bernie Sanders 2 weeks ago:   Friday Jun 4 - 8:29pm You know, let me give Mitch McConnell credit — he is being very honest in saying that "100%" of his focus is on stopping the Biden administration from helping working families. Our job now is to use reconciliation to provide real help for the working people of this country. https://t.co/sBUwuCiIrt

Yes. Government can and should continue to address the needs of working people, not just the 1%. Bernie Sanders 2 weeks ago:   Friday Jun 4 - 10:16am Unfettered capitalism is CEO compensation skyrocketing by 940% since 1978 while the typical worker's pay has inched up by just 12%.
This is not what America is supposed to be about. We must put an end to rampant inequality and finally create an economy which works for all of us. Bernie Sanders 2 weeks ago:   Thursday Jun 3 - 9:49pm Time is running out. This is no time to nibble around the edges.

Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Tuesday Jun 1 - 3:14pm For most Americans, there is a vast disconnect between the reality of their lives and what is talked about in Washington. In the real world, the rich are getting richer, and most everyone else is working harder for less. Let’s move forward boldly to protect working families. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Monday May 31 - 1:08pm I have had the opportunity of visiting U.S. military cemeteries in North Africa and England. Row after row of graves from World War II. It was an extremely sobering and sad experience. Today, we remember those who died in war and pledge to try and create a more peaceful world. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Monday May 31 - 11:58am Congratulations to Democrats in Texas for protecting democracy and the right to vote. Let's see if Democrats in the U.S. Senate have the same courage. We MUST pass S. 1, the For The People Act. The future of American democracy is at stake. https://t.co/FeDnjJ3Ysi Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Sunday May 30 - 5:16pm Poverty is not just doing without luxuries. It is a death sentence. At a time when income and wealth inequality is growing, the richest American men live 15 years longer than the poorest men, while the gap for women is 10 years. This is unacceptable. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Friday May 28 - 10:56am The American people want action, not never-ending "negotiations" and obstructionism, and they will not come out and vote for a party that does not deliver.
If not now, when?

It does not mean billionaires buying elections.
It does not mean suppressing the vote.
It does not mean rigging the next election because you lost the last one.
People fought and died for our democracy — it is our job to defend it. Bernie Sanders 4 weeks ago:   Thursday May 27 - 11:39am Nearly half of all seniors over the age of 75 have hearing loss. Yet in America today, 75% of seniors who need hearing aids don't have one. Why is that? Because of the price tag. It's time we expand Medicare to cover hearing aids, dental care, and eyeglasses. Bernie Sanders 4 weeks ago:   Wednesday May 26 - 9:04am Jeff Bezos is the richest guy on the planet. He's gotten $86 billion richer since the start of the COVID pandemic. Does he really need $10 billion from Congress for space exploration? Bernie Sanders 1 month ago:   Tuesday May 25 - 10:15am I think most working class Americans understand that for the last 40 years, what the government has done is cater to the needs of the wealthy and of large corporations. What we have got to do now is start paying attention to a struggling working class. https://t.co/WVCk8uJwWf

As it turns out, an agenda of enormous tax breaks for billionaires, and billions in welfare for enormous corporations isn't all that popular. Imagine that!

–$50 billion to the Bill Gates family
–$40 billion to the Mark Zuckerberg family
–$0 to the 99.9% Bernie Sanders 1 month ago:   Saturday May 15 - 3:33pm Healthcare is a human right, not a job benefit. A major step forward toward Medicare for All is to negotiate prescription drug prices, and use the $500 billion in savings to expand Medicare to cover dental, hearing and vision - and lower the eligibility age to 55. Bernie Sanders 1 month ago:   Saturday May 15 - 1:31pm The Republicans know they can't win fair elections. That's why, in dozens of states, they're suppressing the vote, making it easier for "dark money" to buy elections and creating outrageous gerrymandered districts. We must pass the For The People Act to save American democracy. Bernie Sanders 1 month ago:   Friday May 14 - 3:16pm RT @nytopinion: "Israel has the absolute right to live in peace and security, but so do the Palestinians.

No, you don't, because it is a starvation wage. We've got to end that absurdity and finally raise the federal minimum wage to at least $15 an hour. Bernie Sanders 1 month ago:   Thursday May 13 - 6:18pm Unfettered capitalism is Jeff Bezos buying a $500 million, 416-foot super yacht with a helipad after working overtime to deny workers at Amazon the right to negotiate for better wages, benefits and working conditions by forming a union.

Bernie Sanders 1 month ago:   Friday May 7 - 9:47am If you're a billionaire in America today, you probably got a lot richer since the start of the pandemic. Meanwhile, if you're a fast food worker getting paid the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, you have not seen a pay increase in more than a decade. How absurd is that? Bernie Sanders 1 month ago:   Thursday May 6 - 6:15pm The goal of vaccines is to save lives and crush the pandemic, not increase drug company profits.

That’s how the system works. But if you are a carpenter who makes $75,000 a year, a direct payment is “socialism for the rich.” Give me a break. Bernie Sanders 1 month ago:   Sunday May 2 - 4:48pm The difference in ideology between Senator McConnell and myself, between the Republican Party and the progressive movement, is not a question of big government versus small government.
