Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement Action Fund endorses Bernie

To the editor:

Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement Action Fund’s vision for changing business-as-usual politics starts and stops with people. So when we consider which presidential candidate will challenge the political establishment and lift up our People and Planet First values, Bernie Sanders is the clear choice.

He’s the only candidate with a proven track record on issues critically important to regular folks:

• Running a people-funded campaign, refusing a Super PAC, while fighting big money in politics.

• Standing up to Big Oil by opposing the Bakken pipeline and championing climate justice in Congress.

• Pushing to bust up Big Banks and make corporations pay for their fare share of taxes.

• Fighting to expand Social Security and increase access to health care through a “Medicare for all” single-payer system.

• Calling for unity among people of all races and religions to combat racial injustices and the racist rhetoric of the Republican candidates.

What’s most promising about Sanders is his call for a political revolution. To win on issues that matter most to us, we need a grass roots movement fighting for justice and democracy 365 days a year, not just during elections. Caucus for Sanders on Monday.

Since the Clinton machine seems to have been kind of buying up endorsements I thought I'd make an effort to even the playing field a bit. I was just checking out other papers in Iowa to see what was going on and if I could help out when I came across this.
