Bernie Sanders was interviewed by John Dickerson of CBS News Face the Nation on Sunday and was asked what it would take for him to support Hillary should his campaign fail.
Clinton will have to support that $15 national minimum wage, come out against fracking more forcefully, free Medicare-for-all health care for all as a right, paid family and medical leave, tuition-free college, and a carbon tax to save the planet.
Whether he supports her depends on “how she responds to the needs of millions of Americans who are sick and tired of establishment politics and establishment economics,” he said.
Sanders said “.. .if she is the nominee,” she has to do all that and it’s imperative “that she does that well.”.
He wants a much more vigorous climate change program.
We are beginning to see the effect these horrendous socialist policies will have on our nation. They all hurt the poor and middle class.
Oren Cass, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute published a report last week titled, Obama’s Global Warming Plan Would Cost Poor Americans $44 Billion, Raise Taxes By 166%.
It found that Obama’s global warming policies, which Sanders doesn’t find “vigorous” enough, impose heavy and disproportionate costs on lower-income households in the US. His Clean Power Plan (CPP) and proposal for a $10.25 per barrel oil tax equals $25 to $30 per ton carbon tax which would cost America’s poorest families tens of billions of dollars.
Obama’s climate policies would cover four-fifths of U.S. carbon-dioxide emissions and would be similar in scope to an economy-wide carbon tax.
Bernie wants something much more extreme.
None of the policies have worked and Bernie is going to push Hillary to doing more of the same in a much more extreme way.
The United States as we know it cannot survive under these policies. This is the blueprint for a Socialist United States.
