    It is always fascinating to see what Bernie has to say on these topics. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: he and the President are the dynamic duo of legislation--Biden proposes something, Bernie pushes for more. They talk about stuff. Then they reach an agreement. Heck, he could've been nominated for Secretary of Labor, but both of them decided not to, because they both knew Bernie was needed in the Senate! THAT'S dedication!

    I was very disappointed when Biden won the nomination. I really thought it would be an era of restrained centrism and neoliberalism and have been so pleasantly surprised with how relatively progressive Biden's legislations has been. Given the scale of the havoc wrecked by the pandemic, Biden has the chance to be one of the most influential presidents in American history. I suspect and I'd like to think that his progressivism is an influence of Bernie. To Biden's credit, his team courted and collaborated with Bernie and gave his ideas the attention they deserve. But if at all my hunch turns out to be right; if all Biden leaves an indelible mark on how America progresses in the 21st century; I hope history does not forget the contributions of Bernie to that legacy. The man is extremely underrated and I will forever be heartbroken that a man with such morals and integrity never sat in the oval office.

    GQP "Ideas" : Make it legal to horse whip poor people at will if you make $200,000 a year. Bernie is greatness, he has almost single handedly moved the Overton Window in the US to the left which was desperately needed. The Overton Window in the US had been so far right that not only could real, needed solutions not be discussed, the real problems couldn't be discussed.

    100%. Even as Dems claimed the majority of voters wanted someone more moderate while they coalesced to push Bernie out, they know that's completely untrue. That we want progressive change, real-people centered policies, to come into what the US is really supposed to be. It's a carefully mastered plan to keep the pissed off calm & comfortable

The first $36,000/Year is tax free to lift everyone out of poverty and eradicate homelessness and labor exploitation! Flat tax of 3% after $36,001 and up to $100,000. Flat tax of 7% of $100,001 and up to $400,000. Flat tax of 11% of $400,001 and up to $1 million. Flat tax of 15% of $1 million and up to $11 million. Then to eradicate and punish greed; a massive tax of 55% anything over $11 million! Goal is to purge extreme greed and greed will increase UBI structure 😇

    Bernie and Biden are both "talking the talk" but, time will tell if they actually, "walk the walk". Hasn't that always been the biggest problem with politicians and presidents? For starters, if we don't remove corporate lobbying money from politics, it will very difficult to affect any significant changes. Keep in mind that just 1% of Americans have more wealth than 50% of all Americans. Do you think they're going to go down without a fight? Let's see what happens in the next 4 years. I wouldn't hold your breath.
