The truth about America's wealth............ December 06, 2010 Senator Bernie Sander’s addresses the Senate with the truth, I just wish it could penetrate the ears that really need to hear this and own it and govern appropriately………………….. Please Santa, bring me more truth for Christmas. « The Worm Has Turned!

I wonder who else will stand with him? Syd Baker almost 6 years ago Saw this on FB by several people, all I can say is that much sincerity and truth and even compassion in one voice is more than anyone expects, ant that is why this speech is being blitzed all over the internet. Maybe only one voice, but that’s better than none. And people are listening! JenLand almost 6 years ago That’s good it’s making the rounds far and wide across this great country. Perhaps there will be other voices joining in…………. sounds like there’s a bill on the table that includes tax cuts for all (including the wealthiest 1%) but it also includes extending unemployment benefits. Repugs just won’t let too much good be done for the worker bees will they? Bill Brouard almost 6 years ago What an amazing man. My main concern is, What is the Presidents reaction to such an astonishingly brutal and honest appraisal? I too wish that changes can be made and appropriate governing can be started for The people of America and the rest of the world. Bless you Jen xx JenLand almost 6 years ago He is amazing and his speech really moved me, you can tell he really feels very strongly about the injustice being served to us. H Maria Perry almost 6 years ago Oh my friend! It is incredible that many of the poor Republicans in this country actually believe that if we just keep giving tax cuts to the rich and protect the corporations from regulations, that they will give them jobs. How can anyone sit by while they can barely pay their bills, go hungry and just wait on the wealthy to toss them a bone? What is wrong with people Jen? Do they really really believe that giving $700 billion in tax breaks to the wealthy will somehow translate into a job? If they think for one minute that those people living in homes that cost more than they will make in 4 or 5 lifetimes are going to be generous and GIVE them a job they are crazy. Mr. Sanders is absolutely correct about the motivations of the super rich and the corporations. They have been working to destroy all social legislation and corporate regulations. What can we do except keep sounding the alarm? At some point, perhaps when all those Tea Party “patriots” are out of work, can’t get health insurance, and the Congress that THEY elected destroys social legislation designed to help THEM, then THEY will stand up for taxing the wealthy and corporations. Giving tax breaks to billionaires has NEVER translated into jobs or a stronger economy. JenLand almost 6 years ago Nope, never has translated into jobs – it truly is a shame that the sheeple don’t see that………. At least Mr. Sanders is speaking the truth. raymondoantonio almost 6 years ago WE ( AUSTRALIANS ) WERE FED SIMILAR LIES BY OUR MISCREANT POLITICIANS….THE DISPARITY BETWEEN THE TOP 1% AND THE REST OF US IS INCREASING EVERY YEAR AND WE ARE EXPECTED TO WAIT FOR A FEW CRUMBS TO FALL OFF THE "HIGH TABLE " AND FILTER DOWN TO THE REST OF US!!! THE SUPER RICH ARE NO BETTER THAN THE DRUG CARTELS AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED!! THEIR DAY WILL COME!!!!! GOOD TOO SEE A POLITICIAN WHO HAS THE BALLS TO ACTUALLY SPEAKTHE TRUTH!! THANX JEN!! XO JenLand almost 6 years ago So pleased to see you here Raymondo! Yes, I couldn’t help myself wanting to share this because it’s inspiring to see a politician fervently defending the masses. highbeam almost 6 years ago The truth is the top 5 % are so wealthy and deserve no tax cuts, since when would they give back a penny of support. What would be considered meager to them by contrast is the world of difference to a working man’s wages: the ones that got out-sourced for greed, the jobs given to another corporate friend and agreement made, the Blackwaters of the world… sponsored dirty tricks and tax breaks and the CEO’s that sold us off to the highest bidder. From free to trade to free trade with restrictions and compliances and loopholes and carbon taxes and so on, etc. This one is speaking truth to power… and won’t last long or the truth will sink in and we will see a CHANGE as promised or it is more of the same old crap… in a different package. JenLand almost 6 years ago I had so much hope in November of ’08 and then so many of the Dems have just caved into the corpporate greedmeisters. We just have to keep speaking the truth and encouraging those who do. Thanks for your comment here Russell!
