Bernie Sanders on Social Security

It's refreshing to see someone who will stand up for our middle class. As President Obama places Social Security and Medicare "on the table," we really need someone to champion us. As Sanders points out, candidate Obama ran promising not to cut it, and now appears to be reversing several key promises he made to us in his campaign.

I've heard Republicans say that everything is on the table except taxes. That's insane. We are in trouble because GW cut off our tax base to make things easier for billionaires. It's time they started paying their fair share. It's time we stopped cutting seniors, working people, and our children so that we could ease the all-important tax bill of Steve Forbes. And it's time we started voting in candidates like Bernie Sanders, who speak the truth and work for us.

Thanks to RP.
