Possibly the most liberal candidate for president since John F. Kennedy, Senator Bernie Sanders strives to speak, not only to liberal-minded supporters but also to people, who call themselves "conservatives." He has found support among both groups, who are fed up with "establishment politics" that fail to address income inequality, adequate health care, education, jobs, mass-incarceration, police brutality and environmental concerns.

The effect of big-donor election funding in the United States is causing voter apathy and low voter turnout. The #Koch #Billionaires intend to spend a record $899 million this year --- More than the total being spent by the #Republicans or #Democrats.

Congress does not seem to care what the voters think. But most members of Congress are true to their money-base: Focused on tax cuts for the richest Americans, crony defense-industry contracts and huge subsidies for mega-corporations that funnel 95% of all new income to the top 1% via investments in foreign labor manufacturing. 

Sen. Bernie Sanders does not have a Super PAC, ready to launch smear campaigns that distract from the issues. He does not represent #Billionaires. 

Bernie Sanders  is an "honest politician" by all accounts -- and his voting record proves it! He has not gotten rich in Washington D.C. His net worth after 20 plus years in Congress is $400,000.

Bernie Sanders advocates public-funded elections and a national Election Day holiday to make it easier (not harder) for people to #VOTE.

The Pope is Taking Back Jesus - In America

Pope Francis and Senator Bernie Sanders have been speaking the language of the people -- expressing concerns about the environment and the economy and calling for solutions -- and their approval ratings are soaring.... while the US Congress has been ignoring these concerns and they are lucky if they can raise their collective approval rating above single digits.

The Pope Is taking back jesus -- In America

Pope Francis has been speaking from Rome, and from other parts of the world, but now he is bringing his message to America. 

The Pope has begun a 10-day tour that started in Cuba. He is visiting New York and Washington D.C. -- But his main focus will be a World Meeting of Families Congress, Sept. 22 - 27 in Philadelphia.

Parallel to the Pope's visit, Senator Sanders was warmly received last week, when he visited Jerry Falwell's Liberty University in West Virginia, sounding very much like Pope Francis in his address to the student body, referencing a call to feed the hungry and house the homeless and take care of the children living in poverty in the USA.

Possibly the most liberal candidate for president since John F. Kennedy, Senator Sanders strives to speak, not only to liberal-minded supporters but also to people, who consider themselves to be "conservatives." He has found support among both groups, who are fed up with "establishment politics" that fail to address income inequality, adequate health care, education and environmental concerns.

While the US Congress is lucky to break into a 10% approval rating with the people, Pope Francis has skyrocketing approval ratings, even among liberals and atheists

There is no doubt that the #GOP - Republican Party a.k.a. "Greed Over People" is fully bought-and-paid for by the #Billionaires and their multinational corporations... then here's a Pope in their face in 2013 --- Taking back Jesus!

Pope Francis is standing up against the Jesus-with-a-gun "Patriot" soldier Christian image that was branded by George W. Bush in his run to become the 43rd president of the United States -- an election he won with overwhelming support from "Evangelical Christians."

Many people around the world use the words "war criminals" when they refer to the former president and his vice president, Dick Cheney because they lied to the American people, gave a no-bid contract worth $138 Billion to Cheney's company, Halliburton... and then invaded Iraq in response to a terrorist attack that did not in any way involve anyone from Iraq.

In 2012, the Republican National Presidential Convention was in Tampa, Florida. The last Republican President, G.W. Bush did not attend, and the Republican (Tea-Party) Governor of Florida was also mysteriously unable to attend. (R) Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was defeated and Democratic President Barack Obama was re-elected for a second term.

Senator Sanders launched a "people's campaign" for the presidency in April 2015 and by July he was able to draw crowds of 10,000 to 28,000 across the country. He has became the Democratic front-runner in both Iowa and New Hampshire.

His biggest challenger for the Democratic nomination is Hillary Clinton, the wife of a two-term president, who was defeated in 2008 by President Obama. 

She is once again waging a campaign from the center-right of the Democratic Party, against a more-liberal progressive candidate.

Hillary gets a huge chunk of money from the Wall Street bankers that Bernie Sanders intends to tax in order to pay for tuition-free college. He also intends to let students refinance high-interest US Government student loans. 

The two candidates could not be more different. Sanders is against the TransPacific Partnership trade agreement and against the Keystone XL pipeline, reasons that the largest nurses' union decided to endorse him. 

He is also endorsed by Friends of the Earth-US, one of the largest environmental groups in the country -- affiliated with 57 countries worldwide. He wants Monsanto GMO seed monopoly to at least agree to label GMO products. His home state, Vermont has mandatory labeling. Hillary has worked for Monsanto in the past and has spoken in favor of GMO products.

These are the differences that will be discussed at the Democratic Presidential Debates that begin the evening of Oct. 13, 2015 on CNN.

Doctors And Nurses Want Single-Payer Health Care

  2. As president, Sen. Sanders would fight for a Medicare for All single-payer healthcare system to make healthcare a right for all Americans. --- And here's a fact: If the United States joined every major country on earth and enacted a universal healthcare program, women would benefit the most. Here's why: Women make up two-thirds of the low-wage workforce and only about 23 percent of low-wage jobs provide health insurance. It is time for a Medicare for All single-payer healthcare system.
    What we currently have, right now in the United States is a "managed illness for profit" system based on providing hospital care, surgery and prescription drugs for profit that is managed by for-profit insurance corporations. 
    The cost of those #Billionaire insurance industry CEO's is part of the equation and insurance customers are also paying for a mountain of paperwork aimed at denying claims -- and cancelling health care policies the minute a person becomes seriously ill. People should not have to go bankrupt just because they got sick. But that is exactly what is happening -- and the majority of people faced with bankruptcy due to unpaid medical bills had insurance when they got sick. But they maxed out their coverage, or could no longer pay the deductibles and  co-pays, and/or lost their insurance.
    The Patient-Protection, Affordable Care Act "ObamaCare" was a limited improvement that left many people with rising premiums and huge deductible costs... in other words, it is not the single-payer system that we need in order to finally address the skyrocketing costs of health care and prescription drugs.
    We still have an estimated 30 million people in the USA without health care, including the largest number of uninsured people in #Florida -- Thanks to a #Republican-majority legislation that rejected a federally-funded expansion of Medicaid for poor working adults, and disabled adults that left 800,000 Floridians without any health care resources. Because, if you do not have net-earnings above $11,000 per year as an adult, you do not qualify for tax credits.
    Many elected politicians claim that doctors and nurses and other health care workers are against single-payer health care. But that is not true. 
    Watch this video of medical students explaining why they support single-payer health care. More than one-million people have now petitioned for single-payer health care! They are supported by Physicians for a National Health Care Program --- PNHP.ORG.
    Under the patient-protection portion of ACA, insurance companies can no longer deny claims on the basis of "pre-existing conditions" or cancel people's group health care, when they become too sick to work any longer.... dropping people from private health care when they need it the most.
    But most people do lose their health care when they become terminally ill, because they can no longer afford the premiums. They lose everything they have worked for, and are then forced into expensive nursing homes that are taxpayer-supported. If we abandoned this "illness management for profit" system and went with a true national health care system, we could save an estimated $400 billion per year on health care in this country! 
    --- That's why I support Bernie Sanders for president! 
    The largest nurses union in the USA has endorses Sanders.
    Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders highlighted his support for a single-payer health-care system — a position that separates him from his rivals for the Democratic nomination — during a rally on Capitol Hill on July 30, 2015 celebrating the 50th anniversary of Medicare.
