Bernie Lays Out An Agenda For Obama
While Bernie is not a Democrat, he knows that the election of Ryan/Romney would be economically and democratically disastrous for nearly all Americans (with the exception of the super-rich). And he realizes that this country would be better served by the re-election of President Barack Obama. So in an article in USA Today a couple of days ago, Bernie laid out an agenda for the president to help him to appeal to middle class voters. It's a good agenda, and I agree with every word of it. Here's what Bernie had to say:
Given Mitt Romney's business record as an outsourcer and tax avoider, and his desire to continue the failed economic policies of George W. Bush, President Obama should be 20 points ahead in the polls right now, not struggling to stay even. At a time when the wealthiest people are doing phenomenally well, Romney's plan to provide more tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires is dead wrong.
