Re: “Obama isn't a socialist — and neither is Bernie Sanders

Median income of $45.5K? Unbelievable. With two people working, we have never earned more than $28,000 in a good year. We're retired now and manage to live without health care (our income is too low for us to receive coverage) on $15,600 a year Social Security income, and whatever we can scrape together (not much). If we get sick, we're done. If SS is either cut or abolished, we'll be homeless. For the life of me, I don't know where these supposed average income figures come from. If the car dies, we're on foot. This is the reality of life for millions of Americans.

Re: “Obama isn't a socialist — and neither is Bernie Sanders

In 2006, Sanders said, “I think [democratic socialism] means the government has got to play a very important role in making sure that as a right of citizenship all of our people have healthcare; that as a right, all of our kids, regardless of income, have quality childcare, are able to go to college without going deeply into debt; that it means we do not allow large corporations and moneyed interests to destroy our environment; that we create a government in which it is not dominated by big money interest. I mean, to me, it means democracy, frankly. That’s all it means.”

Just go to the meeting at the Greensboro Coliseum. Kick the tires. And watch a video. If you don't like what you see....well, that's that.
