b.sanders, loser independent? from vermont is in his 5th hour of filibuster ( a nice word for B.S) wasting the time of the Senate and the hard-earned money earned by American tax payers just to interfere with the process that might bring the Bush tax extension to a vote. sanders is not an ignorant man and therefore knows what he is doing. By bringing our government work to a halt, he should be stopped by H. Reid who will be complicit if he does not so do. More American people should watch the Senate at work which can be found on cable station 148 in upstate New York to see what this individual is doing. He is saying nothing pertinent. As I noted in a previous post, he is no Jimmy Stewart in his role in Mr. Smith goes to Congress. The man is babbling on and on from transportation issues to education. If Harry Reid does not stop this waste of time, perhaps the men in the white coats can carry him off.
In his 6th boring hour, sanders finally got to the point. He hates the rich, would continue unemployment compensation, wants the extension of tax cuts to continue for the middle class and wants the dead to pay taxes twice on what they would give to their heirs. If $250,000 is the cutoff, bernie, how about someone who earns $251,000? sanders spent over an hour lecturing to the Senate and those of us who had the patience to watch on tv, about the opposition not lecturing to anyone. THERE MUST BE SOME WHITE COATS IN THE WINGS, PLEASE…………………bernie sanders’ heritage should be that he was never a MENCH, but clearly a MUNCH! But, then, again, I doubt if he would care.
