Bernie Sanders (not to be confused with Barry) bringing the Fande!

Look at Bernie moving the chains! First Down! Let’s see if we can get a Touchdown by letting the Bush Tax Cuts for the Superwealthy disappear!

Democrats in Congress, you score a win for the whole country by voting NO on the Bush Tax Cuts for people making over $250,000 per year. Of course, 98 percent of America (those making less than $250,000 per year)…we get the Tax Cut, because we have been shafted economically due in large part to the unequal distribution of wealth in this country over the last decade. We need the money, and will spend it to keep the economy growing during this post-Great Recession rebuilding period, when we still have 17 percent real unemployment…because of George W. Bush’s mismanagement of our economy. Keywords: “Subprime-Mortgage-backed Securities.”

* Remember the Bush Tax Cuts (2001-2010) mainly benefited the richest 1 percent income earners in this country. We don’t need a repeat of the “Lost Decade” that George W. Bush gave us. Tax Cuts for the Superwealthy end here.

Bernie! Bernie! Bernie! I guess if your last name is Sanders, you have no problem taking on the opposition.
