I ONLY wish Mr. Sanders would run for president!
#GOP17millionSeniorsSTARVING   As the debate over deficits ramped up in Washington on Monday, Sen. Bernie Sanders laid out the compelling case not to slash programs for working families. Any deficit reduction package must rely on new revenue for at least half the reduction in red ink, he added in a major address in the Senate. Sanders spoke at length about what caused deficits (wars, Wall Street bailouts, tax breaks for the rich) and how to shrink them (more revenue from the wealthiest Americans to match spending cuts). He urged fellow senators not to yield to Republican congressional leaders who "acted like schoolyard bullies" when they walked out of budget negotiations. He summed up the situation in a letter to the president that had been signed by more than 16,000 people by the time he completed his speech.

@judyleasugar97 No diversion. Just take a look at Kalifornia's debt. The state is 40 Billion Dollars in the RED. One main cause is the santuary cities. Another reason is the number of illegals in prisons. Yet, another reason is anchor babies and the state being forced to let illegals in school., And there is lots more.
@singledad1234 Every time someone like you starts gumming up the works in a venue like this, spouting off with your self-serving horseshit, you diminish us all. You make us look like a cluster of tinfoil hat grabasses. YOU are the problem in the way of getting things fixed. Get out of the way so we can fix what's on fire, before we fix what you have decided to imagine are problems. Yes. Our government sucks right now. Let's fix that before we start in on bigfoot, shall we? Now go play.
@Unklebillybob Everyone lies when they are running for any office. No politician has ever delivered on every single campaign promise. The health care reform law does not require the purchase of a government service. It mandates the purchase of insurance from a private insurance company. The new law did not create a form of single-payer government run health care. The citizen can still get health care from any company they want. They just have to buy it from some one.
@thatlogicalguy What social safety net do you refer? In paraphrasing the New Testament, you come-up with your own theology, Nice! Explain, in detail, the inconsistency of which you refer,
@Unklebillybob (CONT 1) This was the FIRST LIE coming out of the Democrat President; The Republicans were not voting against the bill(s), but they were voting against the democrats pushing through a bill that no one had the time to read or edit. Here is the SECOND LIE coming out of the Democrat President; "When there's a bill that ends-up on my desk, as president, You, The Public, will have 5 Days to Look On Line & find out what's in it before I sign it." (CONT)
@improllyright People, are to be responsible for themselves. It's not the job of the U.S Government to take care of them all of their lives. As far as affordable health care, that is why we have health care insurance. That's why people work-to buy those things they need: 1)Housing, 2) Food, 3)Health Insurance, etc. It's my experience that when you put the federal government in-charge, they tend to muck-it-up. Finally, no where in the world do they have advanced health care equal to ours.
Damn, Biden move over, Sanders should be Obama's running mate
@LindyToYou I see someone has spammed you on this question. So let's keep it alive. There is one news commentator who thinks that a fair tax on "THE RICH"(THOSE MAKING $250,000 OR MORE) should pay 55% of that person's income. Let's break that down shall we? There are 52 weeks in a year, Yes? Therefore, there are 2,080 working hours in a year. That would mean a Rich Person would need to work From January 1 to July 21, just to let the government Steal the money it has earned. NOPE!.
Here's a simple question for all the Liberals out there. Or mybe conservatives could answer it also. Oblama, Reid, Pileosii, and lots of the Democrat congress, all seem to think the rich are people who make $250,000 or more. My question is, What Persentage of the Business Income, of 250,000 should, State & Federal Governments Be allowed to Steal?
@mn8aol You mean like New Zealand, Denmark, Sweden, Australia, Argentina, France and Canada whee everyone is entitled to government paid health care? I guess you are happy with the fact that over 25% of American children go to bed hungry in this county because there are are no jobs for their parents. You don't care if they are homeless or if our schools fall apart as long as the billionaires get to keep every penny of the earnings. YOu ARE NUTS IF YOU THINK BERNIE SANDERS IS PREACHING COMMUNISM
@Derekrife you obviously havent got a clue what your talking about, what you just said is a conspiracy theory in itself, conspiracy theory isnt what you think,, look it up in a dictionary, most so called conspiracy theorys are just people asking valid questions and getting no valid answers, there is actually proof some if not most of these conspiracys you see are true, im talking about secret government
The government just pisses our money away. The liberals claimed they were going to save medicare by cutting 600 BILLION in waste and fraud. Then they counted the same cuts to claim Obamacare was deficit neutral. Then they didn't make the cuts. CUTS FIRST! NO NEW TAXES UNTIL YOU CUT THE SPENDING!
YOU ARE WATCHING some sort of ballet of wrestlers , in congress, most of them are crooks, that you , YOU CANNOT , i hope you don't... believe an "economy" is real, you would be a great fool to think that, the economy is SET to be the way it is, how can it NOT be , the banks create the availability and value of money , the government does NOT.
@hobo59 Government run social programs do not work. Government run regulation does not work. Here's the mind-blower, government is unnecessary. Until the American people realize that, they neither deserve nor will have freedom. I say this to you, honestly, stop paying taxes. Break them, it is the only way.
Well close the borders north south east and west, I'll give up my jap bike and let's save the billions we waste in aid to other countries, we have enough problems here, didn't see anybody helping the flood victims in the Midwest. No more student visas, stay in your own country since it's so good . Sorry mrs Obama cavorting over black schools in Africa doesn't get it, start in Detroit, Chicago atlanta and los angeles, you get done here then go to Africa on your own dime
So when is Senator Sanders going to sacrifice his salary (including future self-awarded raises) to help pay off the deficit? I won't be holding my breath.
@SenatorSanders - You seem to be very selective in which comments you are removing for swears. There's one from two days ago supporting Sen. Sanders that has been voted up and is at the top of the page.
@hobo59 Just for you: fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/RL33110.pdf < -US expenditure in Afghanistan $1.2 Trillion socialsecurity.gov/oact/trsum/index.html <- Social Security hasn't need any revenue beyond taxes since 85' online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704107204575039142665463392.html <--TARP $546 billion sba.gov/content/impact-regulatory-costs-small-firms-0 <- Cost of business regulation, $1.75 trillion There's your deficit, and I don't watch Jon Stewart.
I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN A COMMUNIST COUNTRY MR. SANDERS. I DON'T WANT MY CHILDREN TO LIVE IN A COMMUNIST COUNTRY. STOP THE HEGELIAN-DIALECTIC GAMES.
@Unklebillybob Obviously by cutting the social safety net. And anyway according to the New Testament Jesus wasn't a huge fan of wealth and there is nothing in the Bible that supports free market capitalism. I'm not a Christian but there is obviously a bit of inconsistency there.
@MrHoltzer bh oblama, ""I didn't choose to tackle this issue to get some legislative victory under my belt. Ys he did. He thought since he had majority control in congress, he could push any crap through he wanted. And for the most part, he did. Health Care was the perfect medium for bho to push through his socialist agenda. Now, after forcing this health care law through, 55% of US Citizens want it Repealed and only 38% Oppose Repealing it. As I've said, he doesn't know what he's doing.
@improllyright If you have anything of value to say, then say it. Don't presume to speak about something, of which you know nothing.
@Unklebillybob Here is a quote directly from Obama about his motives for health care reform, "I didn't choose to tackle this issue to get some legislative victory under my belt. And by now it should be fairly obvious that I didn't take on health care because it was good politics. I took on health care because of the stories I've heard from Americans with preexisting conditions whose lives depend on getting coverage; patients who've been denied coverage; families even those with insurance..."
was that sanders.senate.gov "If you believe in America, then make sure the President hears your voice and hears it now."
Republicans say we can't raise taxes on the rich because need that money to create jobs. After Obama and the Democrats kept the Bush tax cuts, the Republicans sabotaged our recovery by announce to the world over and over again in the national media that we are broke which made the rich who were going to create jobs think our country was too unstable for them to create new jobs. Vote all those Republican traitors out.
@judyleasugar97 If you want to talk about corporations sending jobs overseas, I would be happy to do that. Or if you wanted to talk about terrorist groups we could do that too. Your statement about ILLEGALS taking a small percentage of low paying job is close to correct. However, this paticular discussion was & is about the Huge Financial Drain ILLEGAL ALLIENS are having on the US Economy. And, if you wanted to discuss that further, we could do that too.
@Unklebillybob: You're number is exaggerated. Your points sound lifted from right wing think tank ideology. Why don't you people just out your racism?
@girardbcp Ron Paul is illuminated by the same concern for individuals as is this guy..... the difference being, that Ron Paul gets economics. Which is kind of important.
Bernie makes me wish I was from Vermont
@kellymartin618 @radioamor Your post is being removed because of profanity. You can edit out the swears and repost, if you like. - Sen. Sanders Webmaster
@MrHoltzer -- THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS AMERICA'S LARGEST ESTATE. END THE HEGELIAN-DIALECTIC GAMES.
@Unklebillybob (CONT 2)  Regardless of what the federal appeals court in Cincinnati rules, other federal courts disagree. Let me put this in simple english for you. Neither congress nor the President of the United States has the authority to demand every man, woman & child be ordered to pay for any govt service, bacause the government orders them to do so. There is a process that congress MUST accomplish to take this freedom of choice away from US Citizens. Unklebillybob 46 seconds ago
@kellymartin618 Ron Paul is known for being a wingnut who supports the interests of the rich. Hyperinflation anybody? Not happening.
@MrHoltzer If your query is, should everyone have health care insurance? ,,,, Then the answer is Yes. And your thought that many people who don't have health care insurance are in that position because of financia reason, then I could agree with you on that point too. As for the preexisting condition,,, Well that one is a bit more complicated and would need a review. However, none of those are the point. The point is that mr oblama has taken upon himself to force everyone to buy health ins.
i cant believe how it never crosses Sanders mind that the government just might be the problem
@MrHoltzer If you want to have health care as a right, then move to Sweden, or a socialist country, where you give total control over your health care and life choices to the government. Bho, harry reid and nancy pileosii had the perfect chance to fix health care, they chose to be dictators, and not listen to the people, ergo, that's why 53% of United States Citizens want this new health care law thrown into the trash can and to start-all-over again.
)CONT) Amy Dumas, Brandon Winfield, Brittany Binger, Debbie Thomas, Donald Young, Jessica Willers, Jordin Paulder, Lisa Dilks, Mary Nagle, Melissa Dorner, Min Soon Chang, Robert Finerty, Rodney Johnson, Ryan Ostendorf, Terry Dilks, Virginia J Garcia, Vinessa Hocra & Robert Krentz .These people are no longer with us because of Illegal Aliens.100% of these people were either killed or murdered by ILLEGAL ALIENS. Had the illegals not been here, these people listed above, could still be alive
ABOLISH DEBT, PERIOD, for the love of god, no one is benefitingi from agreeing to pay out debt, to be indebted, money represents labor and commodity, NO ONE i is hurt by declaring amnesty for all citizens of the world... NO ONE.... NO ONE, not even banks, banks MAKE money, the fed is not FEDERAL the fed is owned by banks, NOT the government. its really very simple. by reading this you owe me $2000 , don't pay it, well......... you are bad. that's how banks think, stealing... is good...

@judyleasugar97 Hi Judy. Are you sitting down? You and I will have an agreement with: Big Oil Companies, Banks, The Auto Industry etc. My concern is with the Federal Government's Interference in Small & Medium Businesses. Have a good Sunday
you people need to stop making this into dem vs rep, as it is only a tool that the powers that be use to split us up against each other. nobody in congress gives a shit about us since citizens united, they are all bought and paid for. citizens united is something that both dems and reps can agree is hurting america right? lets work together to end it, and from there we can see that things can actually get done in this country when it's people come together
@ShadowCrashed81 I don't think I can post a link here, but go to CSPAN's video library. Look for the June 27, 2011 Senate Session. When you find it, you will notice a box on the left that lets you skip to various sections. Bernie's speech starts at 2:03:07. I watched it live yesterday, but had missed the very beginning. I went to CSPAN's site last night and watched the entire speech again. Bernie has me fired up!
@Unklebillybob I didnt say anything about congress but since you brought it up Those are tax dollars and even though i do agree that we do give money to hostile continues the government can do whatever it wants with those tax dollars (within reason) Do you think we should get rid of these social programs, or rewrite them? If you want to try to balance the budget I strongly suggest you look at the pentagon budget And apparently you do not know what great of an asset immigrants are to this country
Making the rich pay their share of taxes is not communism. It's fairness. In communist countries people don't have basic freedoms like freedom of speech, due process of law. To me this defines communism. Maybe you need to educate yourself about what communism really is.
@Janba32 Really? that was a tax almost nobody paid and our economy only grew 2.5 percent each year, compare to the roaring twenties or the Hollywood post war boom. Mansions in BH were made because of excess wealth made in foreign countries with IMF support. I also don't understand why the GI bill was passed, it was a ticking time bomb of debt. College wasnt EVEN AN EXPECTED 'NEED", less people went to college. Also, People SAVED MORE, today we don't have any savings. AND life isn't as good CONT!
Senator Sanders is a real man of honor and i'm so thankful for him for standing up for the real truth.......Please President Obama listen....next election 75% of voters will remember who to vote for....the ones like Sen. Sanders
@MrHoltzerConsidering this narrowed understanding of Commerce Clause jurisprudence, mandate on health insurance. Although some have argued that the fact that health care spending accounted for $2.2 trillion in 2007 alone is enough of a “rational basis” for Congress to mandate health insurance, Rehnquist's words show that it is not. Simply because Congress may conclude that every living American must possess health insurance does not necessarily make it so. Fini
so when is senator sanders going to announce he is running for president ??? he has my vote!
Bush could have vetoed anything the Republican party did not want for 2007 & 2008. Democrats did not have the numbers to override a presidential veto. So cut the crap & stop trying to shift blame. Bottom line is this, the recession offcially started during the fall of 2007, Democrats just took over as majority earlier in that year of 2007. Govt. couldnt f'up the economy within a year it takes MANY years. Rep had majority 1995-2007 (except house for 18 months in 2001-2003) W/ Pres from 2001-2008
@Unklebillybob First of all Sanders is an independent not a Democrat. Further more no one "takes-over" America's Congress. The people that are there are the people who the American populace elected to represent them. To call it a take-over is a blatant misunderstanding of how US politics works. Also Sanders is not asking for the middle class to pay more in taxes. He is just saying that it is high time the extremely wealthy pay their fair share.
Go to his website and sign his letter to Obama!
@JeremyWBlueDuck37 Business is affected economically by more than just taxes. Regulations, licensing, and labor laws are the primary burdens. Licensing is for the most part for the benefit of those already in a field, creating higher, unnatural barriers to entry that reduce competition. Regulations, although some are necessary, many (and an economically substantial amount) are the product of ideology rather than safety concerns (how else can you make sense of GM's comments?)
@acekiller121 Currently, people who are considered rich, already do pay a "...bigger percentage of the pie..." . The richest 20 percent paid 68.9 percent of federal taxes, & the top 1 percent paid 28.1 percent. (One would expect the rich to pay more, since they earn more, but these percentages are even higher than their share of the nation's total income. In contrast ~ 47% of Americans, pay ZERO Taxes. And people like you want those, already paying the Lion's Share in Taxes, to pay more - NO!
@Unklebillybob: I'm tired of the illegal aliens drum beat. It's a diversion. Let's hear about the loss of jobs overseas. And I can predict what you'll say, that the poor poor billionaires are under such a heavy heavy tax burden. Oh I feel so sorry for them. Lowest tax rates in half a century and they can't hire American workers? Greed, that's all it is.
@Unklebillybob I'm not sure where you're getting you information, but I as for one do pay my taxes, and your statement of 47% of people not paying taxes is simply not true. Also, since people like yourself, as I can tell from your political view you have expressed, want to count corporations as people. Since corporations tend not to pay anything, then i guess what you say can be true. Lastly, answer me this: How come billionaires and millionaires are only taxed at about $100,000-$250,000?
as it was today, we have more appliances and luxuries (IPHONE). Would still like to live under the draft, polio, possible nuclear death? The rich are the people who give us jobs and our "needs" which would be wants back then. Also, what about the 60s and 70s. Remember vietnam, gas prices, inflation (we still have that) and gold prohibition? The tax cuts were not even passed until 1981! You are living in a fantasy world.
@Unklebillybob: Nice comeback that didn't answer what I said at all. What about the crumbling infrastructure? Think it's going to fix itself when the richest people in this country are getting out of paying their fair share of taxes?
@FactChecking101 How about cutting billions from our bloated war budget? How about stopping all these damned wars? How about taking the profit out of making materials for war? How about stopping paying the thousands of mercenaries we have in Iraq and Afghanistan? How about cutting billions from the military/industrial complex against which President Eisenhower warned?
@MrHoltzer This is going to be fun! 1) Your statement: "You realize that if both sides of the aisle did not read the entire bill, th(e)n in the same regard Republicans did not know what they were voting against." I will try to get these quotes into this statement. If I need to extend I will do that too. On March 18, 2009, president hopeful obama promised the following: "I'll Make our government open and transparent, that anyone can insure that our business is the people's business." (CONT)
@judyleasugar97 NO MORE HEGELIAN-DIALECTIC GAMES.
@Unklebillybob: Apparently you are unaware that right now because of the horrible job market in the states, illegal immigration is down to zero. The problem is not illegal immigration.
@SenatorSanders - Another day passes and a supportive post with profanity remains. The double-standard is unsurprising.
@radioamor Your post is being removed because of profanity. You can edit out the swears and repost, if you like. - Sen. Sanders Webmaster
@Janba32 Um, every study ever done? Go Google "conservatives more generous than liberals". Even Google did a study and came to the same results. We earn less but still give more money, time, and blood. All facts. As a former Marine, I hate what we waste on our war machine. Democrats start more wars than Republicans. Guess you liberal media or union teachers never taught you that did they? Go learn something.
@merr7242 That would be over $72,000 today or one and a half times the American average household income. Your dad did very well. Good for him. By the way, YOU pay all corporate taxes so a corporate tax is a tax on you.
@Unklebillybob: How about these big multi national corporations pay the same percentage as the average person? Many of these companies pay NO TAXES! Let's start by ending subsidies!
@Unklebillybob You realize that if both sides of the aisle did not read the entire bill than in the same regard Republicans did not know what they were voting against. They very well could (and did) vote against something that has the potential to be beneficial to a large number of Americans. As far as its constitutionality goes I would like to point out that it has recently been upheld by a federal appeals court in Cincinnati. It was declared constitutional by a bipartisan group of judges.
@rooftopeagle So only the people you like have rights? Perhaps something like 'not allowing the government to give them money in the form of bailouts' so that they're not stealing from the American people, would be a more prudent first step. Just a thought.
Respond to this video... Higher taxes for us and businesses will drive those businesses either out of business or out of the U.S. either way we will lose more income and will need even higher taxes. As the baby boomer generation hits the Hospitals and Soc Sec Benefits the whole system will collapse !
AWWW GE and goldman sach's arent going to fund obama's campaign if they start taxing them. Meanwhile......... michelle obama is on vacationing again on her round the world trip. Maybe we can get rid of everyone in washington who have gotten us into this mess. (if you have been in congress for more than 10 years you are guilty of running us into the ground)
@acekiller121 OK. If 47% of Americans don't pay any Federal Taxes, then, pray tell,,,,What is the Percentage Who Do Not Pay Any Federal Taxes? I'll wait, since I've got the statistics right in front of me. On your next point, you need to back-up your claims, with a break-down of where taxes are paid through those corportations. Agan, I'll wait. Restate your last question. $100,000-$250,000 ,,,, For what?
The fact is that nearly 50% of ALL Americans pay NO FEDERAL TAX all! What is killing the middle class is the government paying people to do absolute nothing. You are never going to balance the budget by taxing only the wealthy people. The government must CUT spending. They need to prioritize and eliminate programs and departments that are NOT the responsibility of the FEDERAL government.
The Democrats Took Control of Congress in Jan 2007. Meaning, Democrats were in control; All of 2007, All of 2008, All of 2009 All of 2010. And then, All of 2009 and All of 2010, democrats had Total Control of: The White house, The House & The Senate. Now, Democrats are still in control of the White House & the Senate (Jan 2011 - October 2012). As for GW's Vetoes, In 2007-HR 1591, 976, 1495, 3043, 3963, 1585, & S 5. 2008 HR; 2082, 2419, 6124, 6331. Recession Was Under democrat congress.
@mn8aol your an idiot, unless your rich, your clueless.
@MrHoltzer Let me make this simple for you. U.S Citizens, don't have a revenue problem. Our elected political officials have an over-spending problem. If you're serious about balancing our budget, let's start by cutting Tax Payer Money, from countries that hate us. You still haven't answered my question, explain your statement of "He is just saying that it is high time the extreme wealthy pay their fair share." What percentage of any business' profit should the government take?
@judyleasugar97 I Capitalized "ILLEGALS" and I Capitalized "ILLEGAL ALIENS". Because that is what they are and that is the problem. You have never seen me talk about LEGALS, nor LEGAL ALIENS.. Do you want to talk about the cost of ILLEGALS/ALIENS, or do you want to talk about why so many companies have gone Overseas? Pick ether one, first.
DEAR MR. SANDERS, I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN A COMMUNIST COUNTRY. I DON'T WANT MY CHILDREN TO LIVE IN A COMMUNIST COUNTRY.
@JMcH Correct!, Correct!, Correct!, And the final aswer is, that you or I need reach a vested or minimum age before we have our set pention in place.
@Unklebillybob Also when a company makes $9 billion in profits and pays nothing in taxes, but gets an IRS rebate that just seems a little absurd. Bernie wants to eliminate off-shore taxes shelters for corporations and wealthy citizens. This would bring in $100 billion a year in revenue. Anyone who is serious about cutting the deficit would be daft not to take the opportunity to bring in that much more revenue.
@Jmortal -- NO MORE HEGELIAN-DIALECTIC GAMES.
@FactChecking101 Obviously you don't care that in this wealthy country 25% of kids go to bed hungry. You don't care about all the people thrown out of their homes. You don't care that the banksters screwed America. You don't care that people making billions pay next to nothing in taxes. You don't care that Warren Buffets's secretary pays a higher percentage of her salary than he does. In fact, you don't give a damn about the majority of the American people who will suffer under the GOP plan..
@Unklebillybob According to US Federal Judges it is not, and seriously who does not want health insurance? Most people that don't have insurance are in such a position because they can't afford it or they were denied insurance because of a pre-existing medical condition. I would have to believe that the millions of uninsured in this country are not so by choice, but through no fault of their own.
Respond to this video... When these social programs were first enacted we only lived to our 60's and 70's. But now we routinely live to our 80's and 90's. They were started in the 40's and we started having to borrow to pay for them in the 70's So 40 plus years of Borrowing has amassed a huge debt. that if we raise the debt ceiling now we will not even be able to pay the interests with the income and we will all be forced to pay higher taxes.
@judyleasugar97 Judy; I gave you a few people who were killed or murdered by Illegal Aliens. Don't try and divert. Billions of dollas is not "...a minor problem" You want to talk about people "...paying their fair share of taxes..."? Ok, let's talk about Fair Share of Taxes. Tell me, what percentage of a person's income should go to Federal and State Taxes? You can take your time and figure-out what would be fair. Let me know.
Bernie - Go out in the rel world and get a real job !!!! Since you and the democrats took-over congress in 2006, the country has CHANGED for the worse and put the American Tax Payers in CHAINS. Resign!
@ocavant What figures are you using to support your contention that there would be no deficit if the Corporations paid more taxes ? I contend they would simply move operations overseas if taxed at higher rates. Then what ?
@Derekrife only ron paul can stop this happening, thats if it hasnt happened already before the next election
