IT’S THE SAME THE WHOLE WORLD OVER
Bernie Sanders is the lone socialist in the US senate. His statement applies not only to the United States but too all of the developed world where the wellbeing of ordinary people is being cynically sacrificed to a greed so overwhelming it would be an abstraction if it wasn’t so damaging.
“The Republicans have been absolutely determined to make certain that the rich and large corporations not contribute one penny for deficit reduction, and that all of the sacrifice comes from the middle class and working families in terms of cuts in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, LIHEAP, community health centers, education, Head Start, nutrition, MILC, affordable housing and many other vitally important programs. I cannot support legislation like the Reid proposal which balances the budget on the backs of struggling Americans while not requiring one penny of sacrifice from the wealthiest people in our country. That is not only grotesquely immoral, it is bad economic policy.”
