BERNIE’S ‘RIGHTS’: Sanders’ Camp Demands Free Healthcare, College, ‘Good’ Job, Housing, Retirement, MORE

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.13.19

Bernie Sanders’ campaign released a new Democratic Socialist ‘Economic Bill of Rights’ this week; saying all Americans should be provided with healthcare, education, a ‘good job,’ housing, secure retirement, and more.

“We need a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights:
– The right to health care
– The right to education
– The right to a good job
– The right to affordable housing
– The right to a secure retirement
– The right to a clean environment#DemocraticSocialism,” posted Josh Miller-Lewis, Sanders’ Digital Communications Director.

Sanders confirmed earlier this week that no one in America will be able to opt-out of his new $32 trillion healthcare plan.

Sanders was speaking with MSNBC when he was asked if satisfied Americans can choose to remain with their current healthcare provider.

“If I want to, can I opt out?” asked the interviewer.

“No,” Sanders said immediately. “It’s like social security. It’s like Medicare right now. It’s just an expansion of Medicare.”

Sanders published an op-ed in the New York Times last week; blasting America’s “unfettered capitalism” and “corporate” culture.

“I am running for president because we must defeat Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in the modern history of our country. But, if we are to defeat Mr. Trump, we must do more than focus on his personality and reactionary policies,” writes Sanders.

“We must understand that unfettered capitalism and the greed of corporate America are destroying the moral and economic fabric of this country, deepening the very anxieties that Mr. Trump appealed to in 2016. The simple truth is that big money interests are out of control, and we need a president who will stand up to them,” he adds.

“Wall Street, after driving the United States into the worst economic downturn since the 1930s, now makes tens of billions in profits while forcing working-class Americans to pay usurious interest rates on their credit card debt. The top 10 American drug companies, repeatedly investigated for price fixing and other potentially illegal actions, made nearly $70 billion in profits last year, even as Americans paid the most per capita among developed nations for their prescription medicine,” Sanders concludes.

BERNIE BACKS OMAR: Sanders Defends Omar’s ‘Legitimate Criticism’ of Israel

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.07.19

Vermont Senator and potential 2020 Democratic nominee Bernie Sanders defended Rep. Ilhan Omar’s fierce anti-Israeli rhetoric Thursday; saying Americans shouldn’t “equate” anti-Semitism with “legitimate criticism” of the Jewish State.

“Anti-Semitism is a hateful and dangerous ideology which must be vigorously opposed in the United States and around the world,” said Sanders. “We must not, however, equate anti-Semitism with legitimate criticism of the right-wing, Netanyahu government in Israel.”

“Rather, we must develop an even-handed Middle East policy which brings Israelis and Palestinians together for a lasting peace,” he added.

House Democrats will vote Thursday on a resolution “against bigotry” that fails to explicitly condemn Omar’s recent series of anti-Israeli statements and posts on social media.

BERNIE BLASTS WALMART: The Far-Left Senator Demands Walmart Raise Wages for All Workers

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.05.19

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders directly targeted Walmart at the corporation’s shareholder meeting Wednesday; demanding higher pay for all workers to avoid what he described as “starvation wages.”

“Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders attended the annual Walmart shareholders meeting on Wednesday, where he pressed the company to raise wages for its hourly workers,” reports Fox Business.

“Sanders put forth a proposal to raise the company’s $11 minimum wage. He also proposed allowing hourly workers to have representation on the company’s board of directors,” adds the article.

“Walmart is the largest private employer in America and is owned by … the wealthiest family in the U.S.,” Sanders said during his three-minute presentation. “Despite the wealth of its owner, Walmart pays many of its employees starvation wages.”

Sanders has previously attacked giant American corporations such as McDonald’s and Amazon; similarly demanding an increase in payment to avoid “starvation wages.”

Sanders released a new proposal last week that would crackdown on “capitalism” in the United States; promoting “worker ownership” of large companies and corporations.

“Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will push new policies aimed at giving workers a greater ownership stake in companies, moves the 2020 presidential candidate is pitching as a dramatic transfer of power in the U.S. economy,” writes the Washington Post.

“The plans would give millions of workers the type of workplace influence typically reserved for shareholders and executives,” adds the newspaper.

“The establishment says there’s no alternative to an unfettered capitalism that produces huge CEO bonuses while millions are paid starvation wages. They are dead wrong. Instead of more tax breaks to profitable corporations, let’s expand employee ownership,” posted Sanders on social media.

“We can move to an economy where workers feel that they’re not just a cog in the machine — one where they have power over their jobs and can make decisions,” Sanders said in an interview. “Democracy isn’t just the opportunity to vote. What democracy really means is having control over your life.”
