Senator Bernie Sanders Delivers the Weekly Democratic Address




“President Trump and his Republican colleagues are now pushing the most destructive and unfair budget and tax proposal in the modern history of our country. A budget that would do incalculable harm to tens of millions of working families, to our children, to the sick, to the elderly, and to the poor,” said U.S. Senate Budget Committee Ranking Member Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

“At a time when the middle-class is shrinking, and over 40 million Americans are living in poverty, we need a budget that reflects the needs of working families of the middle-class, and not just the wealthiest people in our country, nor the largest campaign contributors. Our job now is to stand up, fight back, and to defeat this horrendous budget.” -Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT)

5. Did I read the title correctly? Weekly Democratic address?

 

And only 4 replies? That says a lot to me.

Thanks for posting.

6. When has anyone bothered posting any previous "weekly Democratic addresses"?

Last week was John Lewis, by the way.



And the previous week was Catherine Cortez Masto

12. A very fair point, and one that keeps this in the proper context

But we all know how this board tends to be. I suspect that if Kamala Harris or Maxine Waters (both of whom I also like) does one of these that it would get posted here. Nothing wrong with that either, but people have their flash points, bot positive and negative. More of these weekly addresses should get posted at DU actually. And discussed.

7. The Democratic Party is bending over backwards for this guy. Where's the reciprocity?

9. You Know Reciprocity Means, Right?

His doing this address is the answer to your question!
I don't take sides in these Sanders wars, but:
1. The address itself makes your question illogical
2. Sanders did not pick himself for this address, dem leadership did.

It's obvious that DEMOCRATIC leadership thinks more of Sanders than some here on DEMOCRATIC Underground

20. Searching for correct word.....

perhaps “obnoxious”? But that doesn’t convey the toxicity.

18. I'm guessing yes, but

 

Sanders still won out. I mean, what is it, maybe 100 to 1?

15. Taking credit for saving the ACA, which he STILL does not name,

seems hypocritical since he got on TV at a point when it wasn't clear whether it would survive a last-minute attack to push his own strange version of it which is already an option in the ACA.

Also, he fails to make any reference to Trump's latest executive order eliminating ACA subsidies. Granted he might have recorded this before he knew about it but it would have behooved him to keep his comments up to date so as not to misinform the public as to the continuing peril of the ACA.
