Why Surprising Numbers of Republicans Vote for Bernie Sanders? Social Security, free college, breaking up the big banks, aren’t “progressive” policies, they’re just common sense, and 60 years ago they would have put Bernie Sanders smack dab in the mainstream of my father’s Republican Party.

I heard there's a study which shows that the majority of americans support progressive policies such as m4a, does anyone have the link for it? I'd like to have it so I can send it to some people who spread the lie that progressives aren't in the majority and therefore can't win the election.

Noam Chomsky on Bernie Sanders’s Chances of Success – “The wealthy control legislation in America. The barriers against carrying out progressive legislation are quite high. It would require an enormous popular mobilization, the kind that took place in the 1930s that enabled the New Deal.”

BREAKING: Bernie Releases Most Progressive Housing Plan in History to End Homelessness and Affordable Housing Crisis

https://i.redd.it/xxdgtparbdn31.png

READ THE PLAN HERE and use #HousingForAll!

Bernie Sanders on Wednesday unveiled his Housing for All plan, a bold proposal to guarantee every American – regardless of income – a fundamental right to a safe, decent, accessible, and affordable home.

“There is virtually no place in America where a full-time minimum wage worker can afford a decent two bedroom apartment. At a time when half of our people are living paycheck to paycheck, this is unacceptable,” said Sen. Sanders. “For too long the federal government has ignored the extraordinary housing crisis in our country. That will end when I am president. My administration will be looking out for working families and tenants, not the billionaires who control Wall Street.”

In America today, there is a shortage of 7.4 million affordable homes for the lowest-income renters and more than 18 million families in America are paying more than half of their limited incomes on housing and utilities. The federal government should be expanding housing programs, but Donald Trump wants to cut them by $ 9.6 billion, or 18 percent.

Sanders’ Housing for All plan would instead end the housing crisis, build millions of affordable housing units, implement a national rent control standard, revitalize public housing, protect tenants, combat gentrification, end predatory lending and modern day redlining, and end homelessness by:

  • Building nearly 10 million homes through the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund, social housing, Community Land Trusts, and other housing programs.
  • Fully funding tenant-based Section 8 rental assistance at $ 410 billion over the next ten years and making it a mandatory funding program for all eligible households.
  • Enacting a national cap on annual rent increases at no more than 3 percent or 1.5 times the Consumer Price Index, whichever is higher, to help prevent the exploitation of tenants at the hands of private landlords.
  • Ending exclusionary and restrictive zoning ordinances and replacing them with zoning that encourages racial, economic, and disability integration that makes housing more affordable.
  • Doubling McKinney-Vento homelessness assistance grants to more than $ 26 billion over the next five years to build permanent supportive housing.
  • Ending the mass sale of mortgages to Wall Street vulture funds and thoroughly investigating and regulate the practices of large rental housing investors and owners.
  • Implementing legislation to prevent abusive “contract for deed” transactions and using existing authority to protect communities of color, which for too long have been exploited by this practice.

Sanders’ proposal will be fully paid for by establishing a wealth tax on the top one-tenth of one percent. It will cost $ 2.5 trillion over the next decade.

The details of the plan can be read here.

The divide in the progressive wing of the Democratic Party :(

This maybe considered more than a rant that anything else but I just have some feelings I need to share. To anyone paying attention to politics, it’s clear that there’s a lot of division between progressives in the dem party right now (specifically between camp Bernie and camp Warren). Honestly, my fear is that if we don’t unite soon, we are handing Biden the nomination.

In my opinion (and I’m sure of anyone else who follows this sub), it’s clear that Bernie is the most electable of the progressive candidates. So I’m just wondering, what is it going to take to get people from camp Warren, Yang, etc., to support Bernie in the primaries ?!
