Catch Bernie’s Campaign Kick-Off on C-SPAN

Watch Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign kick-off on C-SPAN. During the intro, Ben Cohen said a few words…

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the long-shot candidate… Vermont’s adopted son, the next President of the United States, Sen. Bernie Sanders! ~ Ben Cohen

When Bernie came to the podium, he spoke vigorously about a new Agenda for America.

This campaign is about the needs of the American people… Let me give you… a brief outline of an Agenda for America. The agenda begins with job, jobs, jobs ~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

Bernie’s Agenda for America covers the broad range of issues that are important to most people.

  • Jobs
  • Infrastructure
  • $15 minimum wage
  • Pay equity for women
  • Overtime and paid sick leave
  • Fair and progressive taxation
  • Breaking up ‘too big to fail’ banks
  • Campaign financial reform that overturns Citizens United and establishes public funded elections
  • U.S. to lead the world in reversing climate change
  • Medicare for all, a single-payer health care program
  • Expansion of Social Security benefits
  • Universal Pre-K
  • Free college and university tuition
  • Military defense that is responsible

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
