Sanders: More Taxes For Everyone!

by Pam Key | Breitbart  |  published on October 19, 2015


Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders said his tax increases would “hit everybody” because he would raise the payroll tax to pay for paid family and medical leave.

Sanders said, “I think if you are looking about guaranteeing paid family and medical leave, which every other major country has so that when a mom gives birth she doesn’t have to go back to work in two weeks. Dad or mom can stay home with the kids. That will require a small increase in the payroll tax.”

Stephanopoulos said, “That’s going to hit everybody.”

    This clown or his female liberal country part won’t be getting my vote. I am not voting for ones that are bought and paid for by the Elitist. Hillary has the support and financial backing of all the Muslim countries and she thinks its great. We put a democrap in we will be a Muslim country within 4 years.

    If I’m going to have to pay more taxes, it’s going to be to help get rid of the freeloaders invading our country , not to help create more

  • Paul Boore

    bbbbbut what about the free college and everything else….are you going to raise taxes on everyone to pay for that too??? Of course you are! There is NO WAY to get money to give away than to collect it in taxes. PERIOD. If you want a Socialist Govt, you have to pay for it!

    Sanders would be the ultimate downfall of our once great US of A. Along with Obummer and the other socialist in the demowit party, the US would become the USSA. Remember the former USSR, China, N Korea, half of Asia, South and Central America, Africa and the EU???? The socialist commies have destroyed most of those countries. Remember Argentina?? A once great and powerful nation that rivaled America in the early 1900s??? When Peron, a socialist, took over, Argentina was destroyed within a decade. Karl Marx and his associates had one thing in mind with His Communist Manifesto, to create an utopian society the ancient philosophers had dreamed about. Looks good on paper, but a disaster in reality. Hundreds of millions of citizen rebels were murdered in the name of “the common good” for refusing the re-education camps. Just think of V Lenin, J Stalin, and Hitler and his Nazis, Mao, Ho, Castro and many others. All hard core commies that would not accept “NO” for an answer. Do we want a USSA??? I didn’t think so. I don’t. Will there be another American Revolution??? Maybe. All we Patriotic citizens can do is keep up with the political rhetoric and events and vote with our hearts and minds.

  • paulyz

    Socialist Sanders want to increase payroll taxes so workers get even LESS money, but expects spouse to quit job?? Typical Tax & Spend (more) Liberal Socialist. Why we are in the mess we are. PLUS, these fools want Amnesty & won’t secure border or pass mandatory E-verify! Completely contradictory.

    Sanders, Why don’t you stick that right arm up your mouth ? The one that you are ALWAYS waving ! Maybe it will choke you ? but I doubt it !
    I haven’t had a raise since 1990 ! Except a couple small ones in S.S. ! Which by the way, I prepaid during the past 30 working years ! PLUS INTEREST ?? I paid all required tax during ALL those years, AND still do ! sure don’t need MORE TAX stacked on what has ALREADY been paid !

  • john jones

    Bernie sanders is an important reason why we should eliminate career politicians from being president and elect a business man to run this country. lets get some one to create jobs not encourage welfare hand outs. every member of congress is wealthy and don’t need a pay check why not give that money back to taxpayers in America. the working man along with seniors that supported this country is being screwed.

    The state of Illinois continues to raise taxes and increase spending. Check out how that is working out for them. Not only is the population leaving the state in huge numbers so are businesses. A South Holland, IL steel tubing plant was recently relocated to Gary, IN (a distance of less than 20 miles). This was allow them to save several million dollars a year in taxes and increase employee numbers by 50%.
    The more Illinois raises taxes, the less dollars they are taking in as the money is permanently leaving the state.

    Great idea Bernie, raise taxes in a crappy economy with prices for necessities going up and you want to make sure that the people have less money to spend. You are totally not competent to be the leader of any country let alone ours.

    • bobnstuff

      At least he knows that you can’t spend money with out taxing people. I want to know where the money to build a wall, increase defense spending while cutting taxes is coming from. For every dine the government spends they have to get fifteen cents in taxes.

      • 7papa7

        I will assume you want an honest answer and are not just trying to be a typical lib trying to start an argument. You do NOT have to increase taxes you need to increase revenues. President Reagan decreased taxes and the revenues went up because more people were put to work and they paid taxes, fewer people tried to go after every tax break in the book etc. There is 2 answers to where the money is to build the wall, first it has already been allocated, secondly you can have Mexico pay for it by taxing everything that crosses the border. It will take time but it will happen. You can increase defense spending by cutting many of the agencies that now exist. We don’t need to be wasting money on NPR, on planned parenthood for example. We can eliminate many of the useless agencies like NEA, Dept of energy, EPA and the list goes on. The government needs to get much much smarter and quit wasting money. They need to get back to only covering what the Constitution requires. I could go on for pages but the bottom line is that it can very easily be done.

        • bobnstuff

          The tax rate under Reagan was higher then it is now, the affective minimum wage was higher and he got the bump from the Carter economy. He also spent more money the he took in. The only balanced budget was under Clinton. In spite of what you may think the percentage of the budget that goes to things like NPR are so small that it won’t help. I remember what the world was like before Nixon created the EPA and don’t want to go back to it. The real money the government spends is on defense. If you cut all the things you say you want to you could raise defense spending about 10%. To tax everything that comes from Mexico would mean getting rid of NATFA and since the balance of trade with Mexico isn’t all that out of line so little money would be raised there. The Congress has allocated a lot of spending that isn’t paid for. If you would like I can give a link on the budget and where our tax money goes.

            What I’m saying is you don’t have enough fat to cut in the budget to do all the things that are being promised. Go look at the budget and see for yourself.

          • Susan P

            Defense is the responsibility of the federal government; so says the Constitution. ALL federal agencies NOT specifically provided for in the Constitution should NOT exist. Those are the responsibilities of the individual states or individual citizens.

          • 7papa7

            Right you are. Sadly the liberals don’t believe in the Constitution except if there be a part they agree with.

          • bobnstuff

            Do you believe in voters rights? This is also part of the constitution. Conservative like to pick and choose the parts they believe in. How about the power of the President. His right to use EO’s article 2 section 1.

          • paulyz

            A President can’t use EO’s to bypass Laws Legislated by Congress. Even Obama knew his Executive Amnesty was unconstitutional.

          • Dr. Bill

            Exactly where does it mention EOs? He has the Executive Power to run the government, but according to his oath of office, he may not issue any order that does not serve to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”. He cannot legally issue ANY executive order that goes beyond the authority specifically given to the Federal Government. Most of Obama’s EOs have specifically done that and are completely illegal. It is unfortunate that our gutless congress and supreme court packed with activist liberal judges has not seen fit to rein him in as also required by the constitution. It does not matter what party we speak about. They are all guilty of overstepping their authority under the constitution and understepping their responsibilities.
            Sanders is talking about taking that even further. There are legitimate ways to amend the constitution to do any of the things the government now does illicitly, but they know they could not get the states to ratify the needed amendments. They just go ahead and do them anyway and we the sheep keep electing the criminals (and constitutionally that is what they are) responsible.

          • bobnstuff

            Please do some homework. Look at the constitution, look at the history of EO’s and look at the facts of the EO’s that the President has written. Next why is it when the Hobby Lobby case the SCOUS is just and right and the Citizens United was fair but if the find anything not right wing they are liberals? Also did not the republicans send a letter to the leaders of Iran undermining the power of the President in direct conflict with their constitutional powers? As far as Sanders goes all I said was he was honest enough to say that taxes would go up to pay for his programs.

          • Dr. Bill

            No, you do your homework. EO’s are only legal when they serve to enable the operation of the Executive Branch within the authority granted by the Constitution. Why throw in the Hobby Lobby red herring when I clearly said that both parties were guilty of misusing power not legitimately given to them. It goes all the way back to Hamilton, who sowed the seeds for all of the mess we have today when he twisted the constitution. He got a Federalist government majority to somehow decide that because something was not mentioned in the Constitution, it was somehow legitimate for the Federal Government to assume that power under the guise of enabling the application of the few powers they are actually given. Many of the founders who actually wrote the Constitution with Hamilton, including Madison and Jay, later distanced themselves from Hamilton and his desire to take ALL power from the states and the people. Jefferson loathed what Hamilton did in influencing the direction of the country and the centralization of power he espoused. Hamilton actually wrote that, in his mind, the only thing holding America back was “democracy”. He is also responsible for creating the central bank which, while it did serve to stabilize our currency at the time, led directly to today’s Federal Reserve and its long list of abuses and the abasement of our currency. He, more than anyone, is responsible for the present corporate oligarchy ruling America and giving the government its marching orders.
            Executive Orders, for the most part, were not seriously abused by presidents until relatively modern times, but both parties are now guilty of that offense. There were only a handful of presidents in the previous century who did not abuse that power. It is just that Obama has taken it to an entirely new level.

          • bobnstuff

            One of the things about our constitution is it’s vagueness. The same part that lets us give aid to Israel lets congress create the EPA. Obama is really good at going to the line but not crossing it. If he had a congress that believed in passing laws he wouldn’t be doing it but since the Republicans have forgotten what their job is he has had to do things he really didn’t want to. The Senate passed a Immigration bill that would have gone a long way to fixing the problem but it died in the Republican House. Most of what the Republicans asked for was there. Congress created the cause for Obama’s OE’s. Yes Hamilton found the opening in the constitution but its creators put it there. Jeffersonian democracy would not have lasted, it didn’t create a strong enough central government. The same problems of the Article of Confederation were still present until Hamilton redefined the constitution. He made it work.

          • Dr. Bill

            Quite the contrary. The Constitution is NOT VAGUE at all. It was meant to be taken absolutely literally. The men who approved it during ratification certainly took it that way or it never would have been ratified. Even Madison, who wrote much of it, distanced himself from Hamilton when he unveiled his grand plan to seize all of the power from the States. Unfortunately for all of us, the first Congress was packed with Hamilton’s Federalists. Hamilton’s actions paved the way to the runaway centralization of power that has stripped us of our liberty and our property. We are some of the most taxed people in the world. Before you take issue with this, remember you have to count all of the hidden taxes that add to our cost of living in this country. Everything we buy, for the most part, has already been taxed several times, and this all gets passed through. We also have some of the highest corporate taxes in the world, which is another reason companies are fleeing to friendlier countries taking our jobs with them. Oh they maintain offices here for public relations reasons and because most of the principals actually live here. The US is the ONLY country that thinks it has the authority to tax us on all of our income, no matter where it comes from, even if it never comes onshore to the US. That is just plain wrong and a typical despotic move by an out-of-control federal government, all thanks to Hamilton. It is indeed unfortunate that Aaron Burr, as despicable as he was, didn’t see fit to challenge Hamilton to their duel BEFORE Hamilton had a chance to destroy the Constitution.

          • 7papa7

            EO’s are never ever to be used to bypass laws on the books that have been passed by congress and signed by the president. Lawful use of the EO’s are fine but not when they are illegal. EO’s are meant to be used for the executive branch of government, never to make laws or change laws, ONLY congress can change a law, PERIOD.

          • bobnstuff

            Only Congress can change a law but the President can and have many times delayed enforcement of those laws. Almost every President in history has done it as well as DA’s and police officers. The Dreamers is a good example of this. He is delaying deportation until they have finished their education. He did not change the law but chose to wait to enforce it. As I said it’s been done by almost every President.

          • 7papa7

            I don’t know what the hell you are talking about here but I will answer. Every person has the right to vote ONCE only if they qualify under the law. If they are asked to prove they are legal they need to be able to do it. Just because you are in America does NOT mean you are legally able to vote.

          • bobnstuff

            Then you are against the Pa law that was written with the purpose of suppressing the vote as stated by a member of republican party. I have worked the polls and in person fraud is very unlikely in my polling place. The law was set up that everyone had to show State Issued ID. nothing else and everyone had to have it. In my polling place the workers know on sight 98% of the voters by name so having to show ID is a waste of time. Those that they don’t know are welcomed into the district. You must be in the book to vote and you have to pre-register to vote. You sign the book and when in question they check the signature against the one in the book. Any law that can keep someone with the right to vote from voting is always wrong and unconstitutional. It’s just like the right to bear arms.

          • bobnstuff

            a lot of tax money goes to useless americans that refuse to work. senior citizens are getting it in the butt while welfare idiots and blood suckers continue to drive nice cars,own 50in. t.v’s a couple of smart phones computers they get on for free every day to encourage people to vote for democrats so they can continue their lifestyle. food prices are through the roof because of demand from non working people that carry food cards in their pocket book instead of being embarrassed by giving their food stamps. I think people should be embarrassed when they are to lazy to work. Bernie sanders is what is wrong with this country. too many career politicians stealing your money while raising your taxes and these blood suckers have never held down a private company job with the pressure it brings.

            You know nothing about welfare and believe all the myths. Most welfare goes to children and people with jobs. The “free phone” give them 250 minutes per month and are crap phones. The government pays nothing for the phones or the service. http://www.examiner.com/article/debunking-the-top-6-welfare-mythis
            What said was Mr. Sanders is at least honest in saying he will raise taxes to pay for things. Unlike the republicans that promise the world with out being able to pay for it.
            Oh and the government give twice as much corporate welfare as the give to people.

          • john jones

            you are right about the cell phones I got my statement and it went up 1.26 dollars per month and after investigating why my payment went up it was because the govt. advertises these free phones and I have to pay for it. as far as corporate welfare is concerned corporations create jobs for people to work and raise their families and welfare idiots take from the working man and woman and they create nothing but debt for America’s hard working men and women. this computer is full of folks every day that won’t work but some how they manage to buy a computer and let some one pay for their service. that is why 1 in 4 children in America goes hungry because of welfare money going to movies,michael Jordan shoes,drugs and an occasional stop by the liquer store. if you are not on this list then you need to travel out into the world and find out for your self. democrats and mainly Obama has made slaves out of the people in this nation for a vote.

          • bobnstuff

            Exxon is creating job? They like all companies create jobs because people are buying what they sell. They get the government money because they own elected officials. Just so you know it’s not easy to buy anything that isn’t food with food stamps. You can’t even buy TP with them and you must have the card and the pin numbers. If you see it on line it must be true. The number of welfare cheats is in reality fairly low but since it’s hard to tell who is getting aid you wouldn’t know that.

          • john jones

            using exxon as an example of hiring is not too smart as you say you are. every one that has any common sense knows oil prices are down and that affects employment. if you will look at hiring in the last 7 years you will see that Obama has created another welfare state by hiring govt. workers that don’t produce very little and adds to the national debt. as welfare receipients are the most devious people on the planet and they are smart enough to skirt the rules that is why they are called scam artist. I have visually seen a food card receipient come out of a grocery store and sell those groceries for cash money so the theory that they are limited to what they can do with those free snap cards goes out the window. the next time you see Michael air Jordan shoes go on sell why don’t you l take a look at the type of people that buy them and make help Jordan a billionaire. welfare money is spent on any thing and every thing that is unlawful. one thing for sure no one makes an effort to correct this problem and that is why me and you don’t know who is scamming the system. which is worse the Koch brothers buying an election or your tax dollars given to useless people to vote democrats in office. do some research and find me one person on welfare that votes for a republican. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.

            It’s the republican presidents that hire people not the democrats.
            The rules for assistance have not changed much under Obama and the amount anyone gets has gone down not up. Time limits have been in place since the 90’s for how long you can collect. The percent of people getting public money is down by 4% since 2012. Exxon is one of the largest share of welfare even when they are making large profits. The idea that if you give companies money they will us it to create jobs is false. It’s based on supply side economics and has been proven wrong time and time again. Most jobs are created by small business not large ones. Look up the numbers on welfare fraud and you will see that it is much lower the you think. My local Walmart, the largest receiver of food stamp cards, hands 500 to 600 food stamp customers per day but you never see people trying to sell food in their parking lot. I will guess that you think everyone on assistance is on drugs or a high number of them when in reality the number is less then 3%. Most people getting food stamps have jobs, many more then one. As fair stopping welfare fraud, we need more caseworkers but you won’t see any republican supporting the idea. More welfare money goes to republican run states then those run by democrats and yes there are lots of poor republicans voting against their own interests. You do love to believe in myths.

          • john jones

            the myth is why do all welfare receipients favor democrats. and how do you know the % of people on drugs that draw welfare because democrats won’t allow drug testing. small business create more jobs at a small percentage because they don’t have the capacity to hire like big business and have the same pay and benefits. the people that are subsidized that are working are mostly employed by small business because of low pay. the only thing I would like to see is all able bodied people in this country would work and I see no problem with helping working people just not dead beats. if we could have drug testing you would see a great decline in the welfare and food card program. in 2008 when Obama took office there was 37 billion handed out in food cards and in 2014 that number jumbed to 80 billion so how can any one figure out how democrats have helped the poor in my opinion they have developed a modern day slave market. as of this morning the unemployment rate was under 4% and the same dead beats that would not work before the recession is still not working and never will.

            Florida drug tested and it cost more money to do the tests then they saved. When tested less then 3% fail. States with the most poor people are run by Republicans. Walmart employees are taught how to apply for welfare and most can get it. Small business’s create more jobs the large companies. All able parties are limited in how long they can collect benefits unless they get a job. Obama didn’t change the rules on who can collect and in fact most of the rules are made at the state level. The feds provide the money but the states give it out and make the rules. If you would like I can give you a number of links that lay it all out.

            so one state failed is that a true test. they moved to another state and got on welfare. small business is why people applies for govt. assistance little pay and no benefits. I went down to housing authority to complain about section 8 in my neighborhood and the lady in charge told me she has 3 generations on welfare in one family alone. they get it till it runs out if it does and moves on to another state to apply and receive it. you can not deny the fact that democrats have found a way to win elections by giving hard working men and women’s money away they work for. as I said to you before find me just one welfare receipient that votes republican and I will eat my words. our problem we have in America since Lyndon b. Johnson is we take our time to defend useless people instead of finding something constructive for them to do.

            You can’t deny that republicans have found away to lose election and can only win by gerrymandering. As far as welfare receipients that voted republican just go to any southern state. My brother in law votes republican every time but has no problem taking anything he can get from the government. You really do need to educate yourself if you want to complain about welfare. Things like the fact that it is run by the states not the feds and that you can’t be on it for ever anymore unless you have a job. Check the rules out for your state and see who can get it and how much you get. The rules haven’t change much in the last few years.

            welfare is a name only used like pizza it has to have some name. I will use a different term and say many years ago a program was set up to help truly needy people that worked in the south in the textile industries and any company that offered little pay and no retirement. this was a good plan based on seeing my mom and daddy work for textiles and make a total of 37 dollars a week for 40 hrs. with no health insurance,no holiday pay,no sick leave,no vacation pay and the plan was to help retired people like them survive but as time went on we had non workers and people on drugs scamming the system to the point it has reached billions of dollars a year. the only problem with that system is that it is supported by democrats to get a vote and their concern is certainly not for the welfare of the people. take voting rights away from people on welfare for 5 consecutive years and you will see just how much democrats care for them. I hope I see the day when any one on the welfare system can not vote for they do it for a hand out only. that is the only problem I have with the system. if you worked all your life as you say you have a owned a business why would you vote for any one that takes your money and gives it to some one that won’t work. I would cut ties with any of my family that depended on govt. help if they are able to work. and that is a key word—- are you able to work?

            you are right about the cell phones I got my statement and it went up 1.26 dollars per month and after investigating why my payment went up it was because the govt. advertises these free phones and I have to pay for it. as far as corporate welfare is concerned corporations create jobs for people to work and raise their families and welfare idiots take from the working man and woman and they create nothing but debt for America’s hard working men and women. this computer is full of folks every day that won’t work but some how they manage to buy a computer and let some one pay for their service. that is why 1 in 4 children in America goes hungry because of welfare money going to movies,michael Jordan shoes,drugs and an occasional stop by the liquer store. if you are not on this list then you need to travel out into the world and find out for your self. democrats and mainly Obama has made slaves out of the people in this nation for a vote.

          • pete G

            You libs don’t get it do you? Clinton balanced his budget by robbing SS and gave us the problems with SS we have today. How many times does someone have to tell you libs that?

          • paulyz

            Clinton also gutted the Military, forcing us to get it up to speed again.

          • bobnstuff

            Yes that 4% cut really made a big difference didn’t it. I guess Obama is you hero since he has increased spending and only started cutting back after we pulled out of Iraq.

            But we didn’t get “up to speed again” because Obama has done even more to “gut the Military”.

            You don’t like hearing from a different point of view. I’m here because I like to know what others think and why. I will speak up when the information is not right and listen to and check out facts that don’t agree with what I believe. I wouldn’t want to be closed minded but if you choose to be you are the one that loses.

          • holyblood1

            First of all Clinton and W Bush started this NAFTA junk and it has been useless ever since. And Clinton got his budget fix from the economy not on his on.

          • mark franklin

            holy cow Blood, The Republicans wrote NAFTA and it had been pushed through both the house of representatives and the Senate. Clinton did sign it but he also stated that we would be come a third world class Country. I think he was right. Note: had he vetoed that bill they had enough votes to over ride his veto. After he signed it I gave up on him.

          • holyblood1

            Yes you are right thank you for that, but I don’t like NAFTA he was right we are becoming that.

          • Susan P

            Actually, it was Reagan’s policies that balanced the budget during Clinton’s presidency. The economy is always 8 to 12 years behind the policy that created it.

          • holyblood1

            yes you are right.

            It is so obvious to thinking people, that excludes libs.

        • pete G

          For starters don’t give our money away like Obama did to Iran. 150 billion, with a B. If they can’t make a deal without trying to buy everyone maybe we need new negotiators.

          • 7papa7

            I like what Rick Perry said 4 years ago. All countries start at zero dollars, those that are in agreement with us would get some aid, those against us don’t get squat.

          • Savetheanimals

            That money belongs to Iran that we seized and froze. I’m not a lib just pointing out what I read.

        • Ace Dragon

            Very kind but we have Cruz and he can more than take care of the country. He is most definitely my choice.

      • Jim Norris

        certain items (walls, military,education,health care) are worth the deficit spending or raising taxes for… the immediate safety and security of ALL is a national priority in very dangerous times like these… maybe you haven’t noticed that our land is being over ran with CRIMINAL invaders stealing their way into our country and onto our social welfare system…

        even worst are the laws (calif) that certain states are contriving new laws in order to issue drivers licenses to ALL without proof of citizenship and to registrar each applicant at the voter registration offices to assure FEDERAL ELECTION RIGHTS TO ANY/ALL ILLEGALS…

        maybe if our national priorities where better defined and we didn’t have to spend our taxes on illegal immigrants stealing their way across our boarders we could spend that money on our CITIZENS

        • bobnstuff

          Three things come to mind here, the crime rate is dropping and the number of Illegals is not rising. The number of people getting help from the government is also dropping.

          • pete G

            Your full of poopy. Bob to listen to you is to give you time you don’t deserve. Your head is as thick as Obama’s wallet. Please shut up and give all of us clear thinking Americans a break.

          • holyblood1

            How do you figure? more and more illegals come in everyday, crime rate is dropping it is because we the people are sick of this government and we are packing and others know this.

          • bobnstuff

            Go look up the numbers. Gun ownership has nothing to do with the drop in crime and in fact the states with the most guns do no better then the one with gun control. go find the facts. Illegal immigration is down because the number of young people in Mexico is down and employment is up.

          • paulyz

            WRONG! ILLEGALS “apprehended” is down. Why? Because Obama releases criminal Illegals, ordered the Border Patrol moved away from border & to not detain Illegals. Also, because of BO’S continued rotten economy, less Illegals can find work, so only the real loser Illegals come.

            p.s. The reason there are less young people in Mexico is because most of them are HERE!

        • Ace Dragon

          CALIFORNIA JERRY BROWN AZZ, GAVE ILLEGALS DRIVERS LICINSE. YOU KNOW WHY. HIS HOUSE KEEPER IS AN ILLEGAL.

      • Graywolf12

        How about we cut spending, reduce over blown depts., defund UN, reduce graft, take credit card away from the Obama’s, sell excess buildings, sell excess land, On and on. This government is grossly over blown to insure democrap voters. CUT, CUT, CUT.

      • Charles Giles

        Actually the reason we are in such a mess right now is that the Federal GOVERNMENT has been spending money for eons that it doesn’t have also, most of this spending is for Senatorial and Congressional perks you know personal interest issues, then again for sticking our noses in other countries business where we have no right to interfere nor any national interest, deploying troops to service the special interest of those that want to steal that countries resources, and to make matters even worst we have allowed the delegated responsibility of congress to a private banking cartel where we have to pay enormous fees and debts for printing the illegal so-called money that we use,”thereby the astronomical national debt.”

      • Jon’s On

        I’m sure he will increase spending far more than his tax increase. He’s a commie and that’s what they do.

        Obama is spending wildly where is that money coming from.

      Time will tell if this is what the American sheeple want. I fear that he just may get elected, playing the role of Santa Claus.

      • 7papa7

        He will definitely grab the far left vote but that won’t be enough to get him the nomination in my opinion. The nominee will be the hildabeast if she is not indicted or biden if she is because her supporters will back biden over sanders.
