Sanders draws thousands to rallies against Senate healthcare bill [View all]

TheHill:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) drew thousands of people to his rallies this weekend, held to encourage senators to oppose the Senate GOP healthcare plan.

On Saturday night, Sanders drew a crowd of about 1,600 in Pennsylvania, according to the Pittsburg Post-Gazette.

“We will not be part of a process which takes from working families, takes from the sick, takes from the children, takes from the elderly, takes from the poor, in order to give huge tax breaks to people who don’t need them,” Sanders said during the rally.

“A great nation is not judged by the number of millionaires and billionaires it has,” he continued, but “how well it rests the most vulnerable."
On Sunday, the Vermont senator held a rally in Ohio, where he drew about 2,200 people and similarly spoke out against the Senate's healthcare proposal.

Sanders is of the hardest working Senators in the Senate. Always the statesman - working his ass off to make America better for the 99%.
