Bernie: “The time is now for Walmart, McDonald’s and the fast food industry, the airline industry, and the retail industry in general to start paying their workers a living wage — at least $15 per hour.” Let’s keep this going until we get $15 across the board!

Take advantage of this momentum. Wal-mart, McDonald's, et al should be the next targets. The more that climb on board, the more the pressure (and employee pressure) will be on those that have held out.

We may not get the federally-mandated $ 15/hr yet, but we can do the next best thing!

Social programs will be paid for by making the rich pay their fair share of taxes.

We're going to start making the rich pay their fair share of taxes in this country. We're going to roll back this disastrous Republican tax bill…

The 1 legislative accomplishment of the Trump administration has (not surprisingly) been a huge payoff to corporate America* and to the wealthiest people… Republican politics are all about: Keeping money at the top of the income ladder and starving everything else out…

They start talking about scaling back Social Security and Medicare after they just pass this bill. They're not giving federal employees the cost of living increase 'because there's just no money' but there's always money to pay for:

  • the rich
  • wars

It's incredible.
