UTOPIA! Bernie Says US Cannot ‘Allow 420 Million People Around the World to Slip into Poverty’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.11.20

Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders called on Americans to prevent “420 million people” from “slipping into poverty” this week; saying the top 1% “own twice as much wealth” as the bottom “99% of humanity.”

“While the top 1% own twice as much wealth as the bottom 99% of humanity, 420 million people throughout the world are in danger of slipping into extreme poverty and 30 million children are at risk of dying from hunger. We cannot allow that to happen,” posted Sanders on social media.

Senator Ted Cruz torpedoed Bernie Sanders “rent cancellation” proposal on social media Tuesday night; suggesting the country “cancel taxes” during the nationwide Coronavirus shutdown.

“We need to cancel rent and cancel mortgages for the duration of this crisis” posted Sanders on social media.

“How about we cancel taxes?” fired-back Cruz.

 

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.

ADD IT TO THE LIST: Fading Bernie Unveils His $2.5 TRILLION ‘Housing for All’ Plan, Calls for Tax Hikes

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.18.19

Fading Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders unveiled his “Housing for All” plan Wednesday; calling for $2.5 trillion in new spending to expand government programs for low-income Americans.

“In the richest country in the history of the world, every American must have a safe, decent, accessible, and affordable home as a fundamental right,” writes Sanders. “For more than 40 years, we have had an affordable housing crisis in America that has only gotten worse. In America today, over 18 million families are paying more than 50 percent of their income on housing, while last year alone the five largest banks on Wall Street made a record-breaking $111 billion in profits.”

“If we are serious about addressing the affordable housing crisis, we need to build millions of apartments and homes throughout the country that will remain affordable in perpetuity to prevent displacement and serve future generations. And when we do that, we will create millions of good-paying jobs in the process,” adds Bernie.

The new proposal calls for $1.48 trillion to “build, rehabilitate, and preserve” affordable housing across the United States.

It calls for an additional $400 billion to construct 2 million new “units” and $500 million for “development in rural areas.”

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.
