Facebook Live: The Bernie Sanders Show

Forget Trump TV. Bernie Sanders has struck gold with his new Facebook Live show

While the establishment press focuses its time on Donald Trump’s tweets, and the ongoing alleged Russia scandal, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is quietly growing his base and addressing the issues people are passionate about — by creating his own Facebook Live show called “The Bernie Sanders Show.” 

The Bernie Sanders Show - Live on Facebook
hopes to reach as many as 20 million fans a day.
“It gives me an opportunity to speak directly to many millions of people about the work that we’re doing about the issues that we consider to be important,” Sanders told NBC News.
Sanders “is viral gold,” according to the senator’s media producer, Armand Aviram, who says the statesman in his 70s has been able to capture the attention of millennials like no other politician.

Doing the numbers: Donald J. Trump is tweeting to 27.4 million and President Trump 16.4 million followers on Twitter. He is also reaching 21.7 million via his personal page and 1.4 million via his President Donald J. Trump pages on Facebook. 
Compare that to Barack Obama with a whopping 56.4 million "likes" on Facebook -- but no posts since his Farewell Address, Jan. 10, 2017 and Hillary Clinton, who still has 10 million Facebook page "likes" but no posts since December of 2016. 
Meanwhile, Senator Sanders continues to be active on a daily basis on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. He has amassed 6 million followers on Twitter. His personal "Join The Revolution" page is a gathering point for 5 million activists on Facebook, and the U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders  page has more than 7.5 million followers.
To add some context, he has more than twice the following of his closest competitors — Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker. 
Senator Sanders is also supported by massive grassroots groups. 
The People For Bernie (page) is liked by 1.2 million millennial activists. "We are activists and organizers building a broad, effective movement for democratic change." - Hashtag #FeelTheBern and  #FeelTheBern2020

If Republicans Want To Win In 2018 They Will Do What Democrats Could Not Do: Pass Single-Payer Health Care

15 years ago, Donald J. Trump said the USA should join the rest of the world that has universal health care, a system that everyone pays into that covers everyone in the country. It's the only way we will ever have real health care that invests in prevention, early detection of illness and cures. 

Independent Senator Bernie Sanders campaigned for "single-payer" health care in the Democratic primary elections and Hillary Clinton fought him on the idea of allowing people to sign up for Medicare/ Medicaid at earlier ages. 

This week, Senator Sanders re-introduced HR 676 -- a bill that would save money, allow the federal government to negotiate prices, and finally provide real health care for everyone. The legislation comes in the wake of the Republican Party's failed attempt to approve a bill to repeal and replace "Obamacare." And it has the support of some Democrats and Republicans.

The USA is the only government that puts the health and well-being of it's people at the mercy of insurance corporations that function as an illness-management-for-profit system that relies heavily on paperwork to deny claims, and cancel policies when people become seriously sick or injured. 

We are not even in the top 25 nations of the world for health care due to the high costs, the tens of millions of people still without health care and the millions more faced with skyrocketing "insurance premiums" and high deductibles. 

We are the only nation, where 600,000 people file for bankruptcy every year due to unpaid medical bills, forcing them to lose most of what they have worked for all of their lives. The majority of these folks had health care insurance when they got sick but their end-of-life costs will be paid for by US taxpayers, after they are forced into bankruptcy. 

These insurance companies collect "premiums" for decades from people, but they offer little prevention and early detection medical assistance because they know most people will not be able to keep up their premiums when they become deathly ill or injured.  

The US Government is the biggest single-payer of medical costs, but has little or no say about the costs that are skyrocketing in the USA. 

The US Government (taxpayers) have no ability to negotiate drug prices... That lousy piece of law was part of the Bush administration's Plan D direct payment to big pharma drug corporations on behalf of the people. 

Millions of Americans have seen their health insurance premiums go up as much as 60% even though wages have remained stagnate. Working people now qualify for the first time for food stamps because of what they pay out every month for family health insurance.

We need to gradually allow people at earlier ages to join Medicare via the "public option" that Obama wanted in the Affordable Care Act. But Surprise! He couldn't get enough votes from his own Democrats because of all the money flowing into the Democratic Party - DNC from federal health care lobbyists!

Bernie Sanders Says Democracy Is At Risk Because Six Corporations Own 90% Of The Media In The USA

Three weeks after the election of Donald Trump, Senator Bernie Sanders spoke at the Free Library of Philadelphia as part of his "Our Revolution" book tour. 

He spoke harshly about the corporate media. "What media does and what media loves is conflict and political gossip and polls and fundraising and all that stuff," Sanders said. "What media loves is to focus on the candidates. What the American people, I believe, want is for us to focus on them, not the candidates, not anymore. Watch the video on Democracy Now!

Throughout the Presidential campaign, Bernie Sanders galvanized voters with his progressive platform and vision for America. In the book, Sanders shares experiences from the campaign trail and outlines his ideas for continuing a political revolution to fight for a progressive economic, environmental, racial and social justice agenda that creates jobs, raises wages, protects the environment and provides health care for all.
