Bernie Sanders - WHAT PATRIOTISM!




"..I saw a piece in the paper the other day, it was quite incredible. The Rich people are apparently leaving America. They're giving up their citizenship. They're going abroad. These great lovers of America who made their money in this country- when you ask them to start paying their fare share of taxes, they're running abroad. We have 19 year old kids in this country who died in Iraq and Afghanistan defending this country, they went abroad; not to escape taxes, they're working class kids, who died in wars... and now the billionaires want to run abroad to avoid paying their fare share of taxes. What Patriotism! What love of country!

You know, I, for the love of me... I cannot understand how people with billions of dollars are compulsively driven for more and more and more. When is enough enough? How many children in this country have got to go hungry? How many people have got to die because they don't go to a doctor, because you want to avoid paying your taxes. Well, that's not what America is about. That's not what people fought and died to create. The job of the United States Senate is to represent the middle class, working class families of this country, and not just the super rich- and I hope we can begin to do that..."
