49. Too Little, Too Late Bernie
I like Bernie Sanders, BUT did he - or any other Democtratic candidate - place the fight against tax cuts for the wealthy at the forefront of his/their midterm campaign message? The answer is NO! Thats when it was needed to get Democratic voters out so the Republicans wouldnt be in charge come January 1st. The 40% eligible voter turn out for the midterms was the Democrats anti- tax cuts for the wealthy WATERLOO. While Sanders orchestrates his filibuster against tax cuts for the wealthy, I wonder whats his counter attack to get the extension of unemployment benefits, tax cuts for the middle class, payroll tax cuts and job creation opportunities for small businesses when he wont have a leg to stand on being in the minority in January?
