Sanders Will Oppose Budget Deal

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said in a press release statement today that “he will vote against a bill that cuts more than $38 billion from programs that help working families without calling for shared sacrifice by the wealthiest Americans.”

“Today, in order to reduce deficits that Republicans helped create, they now are slashing programs of enormous importance to working families, the elderly, the sick and children,” Sanders said. “At a time when the gap between the very rich and everybody else is growing wider, this budget is Robin Hood in reverse. It takes from struggling working families and gives to multi-millionaires. This is obscene.”

    I agree with senator sanders. The republicans are always making the rich richer and the poor poorer. The democrats must stick to their principals instead of letting those rebels run all over them. The republicans want the country back in the 50’s when the poor hardly had refrigerators.
