We should not have grotesque levels of wealth inequality in which three billionaires own more wealth than the bottom half of the country. Bernie Sanders 18 hours ago:   Thursday Feb 21 - 12:15pm If somebody wants to call me a radical, okay, here it is: I believe that people are inherently entitled to health care. I believe people are entitled to get the best education they can. I believe that people are entitled to live in a clean environment. Bernie Sanders 19 hours ago:   Thursday Feb 21 - 11:20am I’m running for president because we must defend a woman’s right to control her own body against massive political attacks taking place at the local, state and federal level.

When we stand together and fight, we can accomplish anything. We can transform this country from the bottom on up. Bernie Sanders 5 days ago:   Saturday Feb 16 - 12:37pm At a time when half of older Americans over the age of 55 have no retirement savings, our job is to expand Social Security to make sure that everyone in this country can retire with the dignity they have earned and everyone with a disability can live with the security they need. Bernie Sanders 6 days ago:   Friday Feb 15 - 5:50pm We must do everything that we can to preserve American democracy and oppose the current drift toward authoritarianism that I believe Trump represents.
Those of us who believe in democracy and that our government must be accountable to its people must stand up and fight back. Bernie Sanders 6 days ago:   Friday Feb 15 - 4:01pm Those who think universal health care is a fantasy might want to learn about Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, U.K. and many other countries who have made health care a right. Bernie Sanders 6 days ago:   Friday Feb 15 - 11:04am The top 10 corporate executives in America saw their combined compensation skyrocket to $1.8 billion in 2017. Ten people.
Meanwhile we have 40 million people living in poverty. That kind of inequality should not exist in a modern society. Bernie Sanders 6 days ago:   Friday Feb 15 - 9:14am When we organize and stand together, we can win. Congratulations to @DenverTeachers on their hard fought victory. https://t.co/4Wg1BaA0by Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Thursday Feb 14 - 1:51pm Since the Parkland shooting one year ago, nearly 1,200 American kids have been killed by guns. This is an epidemic that has got to be stopped.
We must follow the lead of the young activists who have bravely stood up to the NRA, and pass commonsense gun safety legislation. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Thursday Feb 14 - 12:03pm In the richest nation in the history of the world, it's a moral and political failing that nearly 30 million Americans don’t have health insurance. We must go forward to finally guarantee health care for all as a right through a Medicare for All, single-payer program. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Thursday Feb 14 - 10:13am The Walton family makes more money in one minute than Walmart workers do in an entire year. This is what we mean when we talk about a rigged economy. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Wednesday Feb 13 - 3:50pm Social Security is the most successful government program in our nation’s history. We must expand it so that every American can retire with the dignity and respect they deserve. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Wednesday Feb 13 - 2:30pm There is something profoundly wrong when one family in our country, the Walton family, owns more wealth than the bottom 130 million Americans. We need an economy that works for all of us, not just the rich and powerful. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Wednesday Feb 13 - 12:49pm A moral society does not give tax breaks to billionaires, and then cut back on the needs of struggling seniors or people with disabilities. We must get our priorities straight and expand Social Security. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Wednesday Feb 13 - 9:09am We cannot continue a dysfunctional healthcare system which costs us about twice as much per capita as any other major country and leaves nearly 30 million Americans uninsured. We must guarantee health care for everyone through a Medicare for All program. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Tuesday Feb 12 - 6:48pm Americans pay, by far, the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs because, unlike other countries, the United States doesn’t directly regulate the price of medicine. That’s why I introduced the Prescription Drug Price Relief Act to rein in the greed of Big Pharma. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Tuesday Feb 12 - 4:29pm If we are going to successfully combat climate change, we must have the courage to take on the greed of the fossil fuel industry which is driving this crisis—as well as well as the politicians who have been bought off and refuse to do anything to address it. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Tuesday Feb 12 - 2:21pm The current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is a starvation wage. It must be raised to $15 an hour and indexed to median wage growth thereafter. Doing so would give more than 40 million Americans a raise. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Monday Feb 11 - 7:30pm When it comes to taking on the imminent threat of climate change, we cannot think small. We must enact bold solutions to save our planet from the disastrous effects of climate change by passing the Green New Deal to save the planet and create millions of new jobs. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Monday Feb 11 - 4:48pm We must end the international embarrassment of being the only major country on earth, the only one, which does not guarantee workers paid medical and family leave, paid sick time and paid vacation time. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Monday Feb 11 - 3:03pm Enough is enough. We have to summon the courage to take on the fossil fuel industry. We must accelerate our transition to clean energy, and finally put people before the profits of polluters. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Monday Feb 11 - 1:06pm In a society with our resources, it is unconscionable that we do not properly invest in our children from the very first stages of their lives. We need universal, publicly funded childcare. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Monday Feb 11 - 11:55am I stand with the Denver teachers. Public education is fundamental to any functioning democratic society, and teaching is one of its most valuable and indispensable professions. We need to treat educators with respect and dignity. #DenverTeacherStrike Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Saturday Feb 9 - 7:28pm We must recognize the collective power of the labor movement to demand and win respect and equity for workers across the country. When we stand together, we can win. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Saturday Feb 9 - 5:24pm With Medicare for All, Americans will benefit from the freedom and security that comes with finally separating health insurance from employment. That freedom would mean American workers would no longer have to choose between bargaining for higher wages or better health insurance. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Saturday Feb 9 - 3:33pm When people tell us the only thing that we can get is incremental health care change, we will tell them “no thanks.” We’re thinking big and demanding fundamental change on this issue. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Saturday Feb 9 - 1:51pm Medicare for all is a struggle not just about health care, but about the heart and soul of our country — about what we stand for as a people. And it is a struggle that we are going to win. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Saturday Feb 9 - 12:37pm At a time when we see an unprecedented and coordinated attack against a woman’s right to choose, it is incredibly important that we fight to make sure that every woman in this country has the right to control her own body. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Friday Feb 8 - 5:10pm While the ruling class may have the money, we have something that is even more powerful on our side – the people. Our government belongs to all of us, and not just the one percent. Bernie Sanders 1 week ago:   Friday Feb 8 - 2:28pm The mark of a great nation is judged not by how many tax breaks it can give to billionaires, but by how it treats its most vulnerable people. Bernie Sanders 2 weeks ago:   Monday Feb 4 - 3:43pm RT @riseupretail: A $15 minimum wage was once considered "radical" – but working people organized, and today, members of Congress led by @SenSanders reintroduced the Federal #RaiseTheWage Act, which would mean raises in pay for more than 41 million of us nationwide.
Together, we will win. https://t.co/ec3AzfkzaP

Bernie Sanders 2 weeks ago:   Monday Feb 4 - 2:35pm Nearly 85 percent of all stocks owned by Americans belong to the wealthiest 10 percent of households. The time is long overdue for us to create an economy that works for all Americans, not just the people on top. Bernie Sanders 2 weeks ago:   Monday Feb 4 - 1:08pm RT @CNN: Sen.

Our goal: establish a political system that has the highest voter turnout in the world and is governed by the democratic principle ‘one person - one vote.’ Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Thursday Jan 31 - 3:03pm The fight for Medicare for all will be opposed by all of the special interests—drug companies, insurance companies, Wall Street—who make billions from our dysfunctional health care system.
They may have the money. But we have the people. We are going to win this fight. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Thursday Jan 31 - 1:05pm For every white male dollar:
- Asian American women earn 87 cents
- White women earn 79 cents
- Black women earn 63 cents
- Native American women earn 58 cents
- Latina women earn 54 cents
Pay equity among men and women workers should be established by LAW. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Thursday Jan 31 - 11:39am The U.S. Senate and House must reassert its constitutional authority and finally end our support for the unauthorized, unconstitutional, and catastrophic Saudi-led war in Yemen so we can focus on humanitarian aid and a diplomatic solution. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Tuesday Jan 29 - 8:51pm We must recommit ourselves to bringing all people together in the fight for a just and humane world. When we stand together, we can win. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Tuesday Jan 29 - 6:21pm Big Pharma is one of the wealthiest and most powerful political forces in this country. If the pharmaceutical industry will not end its greed, which is literally killing Americans, then we will end it for them. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Tuesday Jan 29 - 4:53pm One of the major, untold stories of our time is the rapid movement toward global oligarchy. It is not acceptable that the top 1% of the world’s population owns half the planet’s wealth, while the bottom 70% of the working age population accounts for just 2.7% of global wealth. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Saturday Jan 26 - 6:56pm Real and fundamental change never comes from the top on down. It’s never given to anybody. It always comes from the bottom on up, from grassroots activism, from millions of people standing up and fighting for justice. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Saturday Jan 26 - 5:24pm In the twenty-first century, a public education system that goes from early childhood education through high school is not good enough. We must make public colleges and universities tuition-free. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Saturday Jan 26 - 2:37pm We have a dysfunctional childcare system in this country, which is too expensive for parents, while providers are paid totally inadequate wages. We need to do what other countries around the world do – develop a high quality universal child care program. Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Saturday Jan 26 - 10:04am Instead of giving huge tax breaks to billionaires and profitable corporations, we must create the best public educational system in the world. Instead of major increases in military spending, we must invest in our kids. Bernie Sanders 4 weeks ago:   Thursday Jan 24 - 10:50am Correction: more than half of older Americans have no retirement savings. Bernie Sanders 4 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jan 23 - 5:46pm We don’t need to create artificial crises like this government shutdown. We have enough real ones. Mr. President, end the crisis you created. End the shutdown. Bernie Sanders 4 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jan 23 - 2:56pm If we are serious about reducing income and wealth inequality and creating good paying jobs, we have to substantially increase the number of union jobs in this country. We must make it easier, not harder, for workers to join unions. https://t.co/cmWRYgXH1q Bernie Sanders 4 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jan 23 - 12:06pm The Sackler family and Purdue Pharma helped cause the opioid crisis through aggressive marketing and lobbying of the opioid painkiller OxyContin.

Bernie Sanders 1 month ago:   Monday Jan 21 - 6:22pm In my view, not only do we have to expand primary health care and build more community health centers, but we need to guarantee health care to every man, woman and child as a right – through a Medicare for all, single-payer program. Bernie Sanders 1 month ago:   Monday Jan 21 - 3:40pm We can and must end the pollution that disproportionately poisons the poor and people of color.
