Bernie Sanders obviously isn't pandering to billionaire donors. He's a man of the people. Have you heard any of his speeches? Are you a supporter of his?

Decrease government spending by trillions? Free everything to everyone, is going to decrease spending? What planet are you from? Using some of that common core math I see. Individuals with your level of willful ignorance terrify me!
And your total support of the rich white dictators truly terrifies me! The money is there, we are just not spending it on us! We're spending it on wars and corporate welfare. The rich are getting richer off of our backs. Stop the madness!
You have the right idea, just upside down. Government is the problem, not the solution. You are advocating for more of government but that only exacerbates the situation, and the problem. You know the problem, it is the cause that you have wrong.
No, I support the idea that our current government be more fiscally responsible. If you think the government is ever going to get smaller, I want some of what you are smoking.
I agree. fiscal responsibility is a must. spending more does not define fiscal responsibility. Our national debt is at 19 trillion dollars. Unfunded liability(ie,welfare, entitlement spending) is over 200 trillion. Yes that is trillion with a T.
All the more reason to reassign the budgetary amounts. Put the money where it's needed and quit throwing money to the middle east korea and russia. Not our hemisphere even. We do not need to be the police of the world.
So glad to meet a kindred soul here. I've started a Facebook group called Writers for Bernie. We hope to use our writing talent to spread his message.
I will join first thing in the morning.
Wow some people are uninformed.
How would he reduce the govt spending, and how would he eliminate the tax loopholes?
Very thoughtful answer and I foresee that you will have a Vote for Bernie sign on your lawn soon.
Hugs to you Cathy! Love to see Bernie fans shoot down the bogus road blocks conservatives put up.
We are trillions of dollars in debt due to Republican-initiated wars.
Bernie is a Democratic Socialist (as was FDR). I think the dismal state of nation may take another FDR to pull us around.
we would actually save money if we switched to medicare for all. medicare is very efficient. if you are thinking of the WSJ article, they just pulled those figures out of a hat. wealth redistribution downwards creates jobs. trickle down failed.
Bernie has NO intention of carrying Socialism to the extreme. He understands how socialism is SUPPOSED to work!
And Democratic Socialism isn't what everyone thinks it is... also in terms of Bernie bankrupting the nation... check out this... http://tinyurl.com/bernie10
Bernie's plans would actually cost less than what we're doing now.
democrats have a more fiscally conservative history than republicans,
Republicans spend money on defense - at least twice as much as is needed. But when you look at the private contracts for war machinery, munitions, and escalations, you will see that all that money is going into the wrong pockets.
I feel like every person I see should read this, I highlight some of the real problems he's up against. http://samuelalbin.hubpages.com/hub/How-a-Once-Har...
