SANDERS SAYS NO: Bernie Mocks ‘Stable Genius’ Trump for Wanting to ‘Re-Open the Economy As Soon as Possible’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.04.20

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders mocked President Trump on social media Friday; saying the “stable genius in Washington” wants to “re-open the economy as soon as possible.”

“We have our stable genius in Washington telling us he wants to reopen the economy as soon as possible and I think all of us are concerned,” said Sanders in a video.

 

Sanders ripped Amazon and Trader Joe’s Tuesday; accusing the national corporations of “making this crisis even more horrific” for American workers.

“Amazon, Trader Joe’s and Berkshire Hathaway figured out a way to make this crisis even more horrific for workers: Union-busting. If there were ever a time to stand against corporate greed and with workers fighting for their rights, that time is now,” posted Sanders on social media.

Sanders reiterated his call for ‘Medicare for All’ Tuesday; demanding the government program cover “out of pocket expenses” for all Americans during the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Rather than subsidize the insurance industry’s profits, we can pursue a simpler, cost-effective, and comprehensive solution for health care. For the duration of this pandemic, Medicare should cover all out-of-pocket expenses for all Americans,” posted Sanders on social media.

“But there’s another, better way to guarantee that everyone in America gets all the health care they need, without cost, for the duration of the pandemic: Empower Medicare to pay all of the health care costs for the uninsured, as well as all out-of-pocket expenses for those with existing public or private insurance, for as long as this pandemic continues. Our Health Care Emergency Guarantee Act is more comprehensive than Trump’s vague proposal and less expensive than the Democrats’ COBRA expansion,” writes Sanders.

AMERICA RESPONDS: AOC Describes Coronavirus Relief Vote as ‘Literally a Hostage Situation’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.27.20

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez described Friday’s vote on the Coronavirus relief plan as a “hostage situation,” calling the legislation a gift to America’s biggest corporations and wealthiest residents.

“Each one of us takes this vote alone. This is not an easy position for anyone to take. It’s a tough position, because it’s literally a hostage situation,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

 

Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her fierce opposition to the Senate’s bipartisan Coronavirus relief package Friday; calling the legislation “shameful” and “crumbs” for American families.

“Our community’s reality is this country’s future if we don’t do anything. Hospital workers do not have protective equipment. We don’t have the necessary ventilators. We have to go into this vote eyes wide open,” said Rep. Ocasio-Cortez on the House Floor.

“Shameful! The greed of that fight is wrong, for crumbs for our families, and the option that we have is to let them suffer with nothing or to allow this greed and billions of dollars which will be leveraged into trillions of dollars!” she screamed.

AOC VS AMAZON: Ocasio-Cortez Says Amazon Response to Coronavirus ‘Racist and Classist’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.03.20

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped the Amazon corporation over their Coronavirus response Thursday evening; accusing the global company of organizing a “racist and classicist PR campaign.”

“Amazon’s attempt to smear Chris Smalls, one of their own warehouse workers, as ‘not smart or articulate’ is a racist & classist PR campaign. If execs are as concerned abt worker health & safety as they claim, then they should provide the full paid sick leave ALL workers deserve,” posted AOC on Twitter.

 

“Jeff Bezos: The richest man in the world. Amazon: Pays $0 in federal income taxes. Workers: Unable to get the protection they need,” added Sen. Bernie Sanders. “The greed has got to end. I stand with Amazon workers who are fighting for their rights.”
