Response to seabeckind (Reply #15)

23. He said that in response to Obama putting a chain CPI on the table for SS cutting benefits

 

No real democrat would ever suggest such a thing. Bernie later walked it back and said it wasn't being 'literal' but was trying to demonstrate these are not democratic party principles. Maggie o above can only think in terms of the 'horse race' instead of what is being brought to the party and Bernie has always caucused with dems and is as much a member of the party as anyone working in its interests for more than forty years while also trying to maintain our core principles as they were being eroded by the DLC (Democratic Leadership Council) who began catering to the banks and wall street and wealthy donors to get money flowing into the party again as unions dwindled in response to deregulation and out sourcing of jobs due to trade policies. They allowed the lobbyists to invade the party with open arms. Clinton is one such leader of the DLC which is why Sanders wants to keep certain issues front and center all the way to the convention. Obama never was rude saying "Do the math...he lost...drop out...he's just angry or loves the crowds..all of which is insulting divisive and rude when just the opposite is true and that is what Obama told him and why he was congratulating him...which is what Hillary supporters of any worth should also be doing instead of petty vulgar tripe we often read here.
Congratulations Senator Sanders for showing such great courage talking truth to power and wealth. Thanks you for this. Your sincerity is inspiring.
