It’s Time for Congress to Pay for War Expenditures

Sen. Bernie Sanders wants to require Congress to pay for Pentagon spending. Sound like a commonsense way to deal with the cost of war?

This is exactly why we need someone like Bernie Sanders running for the presidency. This is why we need someone like Bernie Sanders to win the presidency. Not for arcane, awesome new policies… not to come up with something revolutionary and novel. No. We need him to say the obvious things that we clearly need to have in our government – that any rational, commonsense person would assume is already the law.

That is what we need Bernie Sanders for. Thank God… for Bernie Sanders.

      Hard to say. A Republican Congress would not back. Sanders very effective mayor in Burlington, left framework that hasn’t changed much. My sense? Before anything, we need to get money out of politics. Sanders behind that100%.

        It looks to me like there are many political systems that are in need of an overhaul, not just in Canada.
