Bernie Sanders Hits a Triumphant Note As His Crowds Grow - TIME

TIME
Bernie Sanders Hits a Triumphant Note As His Crowds Grow
TIME
Bernie Sanders, tan and slightly hoarse after six weeks of campaigning for president, began a stump speech on Monday night with a humble brag of epic proportions.
DrSophi's insight:

"

Sanders framed the recent liberal groundswell as part of a long legacy of activism. He pointed to the labor movement of the early 20th century, the women’s suffrage activists and the civil rights movement as models for changing the country. He called for equal pay, paid family leave, a higher minimum wage, breaking up the big banks, and a massive infrastructure rebuilding program, a la the New Deal.

“There is nothing, nothing, nothing that we cannot accomplish!” said Sanders."

NY Times Wanted to Ignore Bernie. They Couldn’t. So They Attack Him

NY Times Wanted to Ignore Bernie. They Couldn’t. So They Attack Him | Bernie Sanders Campaign | Scoop.it
It seems that the Times, as well as the rest of the corporate mainstream media, is underestimating the frustration and anger of Americans across the political and cultural spectrum – and how that is translating into demands for real, immediate change. It’s about more than economic inequality. It’s about our survival as a nation – and ultimately, as a species. A generation of unbridled, unregulated, predatory capitalism has not only brought the country to its knees, it is threatening the planet. We can’t afford to wait for “incremental change.”

GOP Officials Publicly Denounce Bernie Sanders's Obamacare Expansion ... - The Intercept - First Look Media

GOP Officials Publicly Denounce Bernie Sanders's Obamacare Expansion ... - The Intercept - First Look Media | Bernie Sanders Campaign | Scoop.it
A democratic socialist who eschews the norms of Beltway fundraising, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has nevertheless won legislative victory after victory funding community health clinics.
DrSophi's insight:

"Over the years, Sanders has tucked away funding for health centers in appropriation bills signed by George W. Bush, into Barack Obama’s stimulus program, and through the earmarking process. But his biggest achievement came in 2010 through the Affordable Care Act. In a series of high-stakes legislative maneuvers, Sanders struck a deal to include $11 billion for health clinics in the law.

The result has made an indelible mark on American health care, extending the number of people served by clinics from 18 million before the ACA to an expected 28 million next year."
