7. Sanders has been in Washington on the job a single week (reluctantly, in Jan) since late June.....

 

That's not "fighting for the needs of working people..."

But for that one week during the impeachment trial he hasn't been on the job.

won't. We can do better. We can use the ACA to develop universal healthcare that makes sense for the 21st century...Medicare is not a good program...it is expensive for the person. My sis in law whom I have been helping pays over $300 a month for the plan, drugs and a wrap. And she still has copays and deductibles that total in the thousands. We can do better. This plan was never meant for everyone.

14. Fact is that Bernie Sanders would accomplish next to nothing as president

 

Sanders has good intentions and goals, but he doesn't have the skills needed to accomplish them. The problem is that he's destructive to his own cause. He doesn't work well with others and alienates his allies.

17. Bernie Sanders was the roll call amendment king from 1995 to 2007

 

Bernie Sanders is often criticized for "pie-in-the-sky" proposals and impractical ideals, but his campaign argues the Vermont senator actually gets things done.

"Bernie Sanders passed more roll call amendments in a Republican Congress than any other member," according to a TV ad paid for by the Sanders campaign.

I am supposed to admire that? Joe Biden got a automatic weapons ban through congress. Biden has a long distinguished career with accomplishments.

22. I find your remarks hillarous...Biden had no money going into Carolina...and Sanders gets

 

money from a Super-PAC and won't say who the donors are. Biden had a very good reputation in Congress about the money..didn't even invest in the stock market...most get rich in the Senate...I mean Sanders now owns three house. And there is nothing wrong with that.

We need money because the left left /Greens fucked us over in 2000 with Nader and helped elected Bush who's SCOTUS picks helped pass United. You have to have campaign money. I don't give a damn about the funding. Sanders had plenty of money...and some it came from sources he is being sued to reveal...Biden had nothing and still managed to destroy Sanders in the primary because in the end. Sanders ran a divisive campaign and thought he could win the nomination with just under 30 % of the vote and sneered at lifelong Democrats like me. He called us 'establishment or corporate' and some of his supporters on this very forum did the same thing...well guess what? Application Denied.

Bernie just doesnít have it to beat Donnie. Joe does.

Joe Biden isnít my first choice. But he does look like a winner, and his poll numbers arenít only crushing Bernieís, but theyíre crushing Trumpís.

I want to see Donald Trump not only crushed in the popular vote, but in the electoral college vote, too. Joe can do it; I doubt Bernie can.

in blue wall states which would give us a EC win...but I am now optimistic that we might win states we have never won like Georgia or Arizona...maybe North Carolina which did go for Obama in 08. Maybe we can put Florida back in the D column. I am with you I want Trump annihilated.

34. Those who didn't vote for Hillary in the 16 General pushed the country right ...look at the house.

 

Look at Bernie's numbers this time...half of what he had. The reality is by failing to elect Hillary and progressive Democrats like Feingold in 16...the left hurt their efforts to achieve progressive policies at a later date. We have no ability to pass M4A or the Green New Deal at this point. It won't make it through a Democratic Congress.

Imagine a government who works for the working class, the middle class, and the wealthy. I get tired of the constant attacking of millionaires and billionaires and trillionaires or whatever. Many of them came from working class backgrounds, and targeting them for being successful isnít productive.
