    Sanders Fires Back At The Washington Post Over Scathing Editorial

    People are telling us, whether it’s the Washington Post editorial board or anybody else, our ideas are too ambitious—can’t happen. Too bold, really?

      One of Sanders’s comments about the Iraq war and the Washington post was more biting:

      “check out where all the geniuses on the editorial page were with regard to the invasion of Iraq.”

      Because we all know what a brilliant fiscal policy that turned out to be. If we had the money we’re going to be losing for decades to come from that one, all of Sanders’s policies would already be paid for.

      No wonder our media is struggling.

        Bernie can deliver an insult with the best of them… and I include Trump in that assessment! Of course the next editorial will say he’s “too angry” to be President.

    Reich is right about a “political revolution”. Even if Sanders dies of old age during his first term, he’s already started that revolution by proving you can go around the backs of the dark money contributors.

    Obama could have been the leader of such a revolution if he had stood behind his base and stuck his thumb in the eye of his big money contributors. Sanders won’t do that.

    Also, with Sanders picking new supreme court justices, we’re looking at finally breaking the radical right’s control of that institution; maybe for good. With the two justices Obama put in, we’ve already started to see actual honest jury types of rulings.

    Trump Plays The Commie Card On Bernie Sanders

    You knew it was coming, but it’s almost farcical when Trump does it.

    You are what is wrong with this country! Your second point about circumventing congress with executive orders and regulations is the problem. You telling a store owner that they have to pay more for regulations “a nicer way of saying a tax” will cause that owner not to expand his business by hiring more people or buying more equipment (that would employ factory workers making the equipment) . Second point our Congress was designed to be slow on purpose . This way making laws required lots of thought and deliberation to make sure that they were done correctly for the people by the people not some dictatorship they just comes up with the whim of an idea and then executes it . Sanders also said he doesn’t mind a 90% tax rate . So before anybody makes a comment about my ideas I want you to take 90% of your income and dump it into something that you will not use give it to charity for a month and then tell me how you survive on 10% of your hard work .

    Great poster. It’s a perfect counterpart to Hillary’s message which is: “It’s all about me, it’s my turn!” We’re Americans. We don’t want dynasties or coronations in our country!
