The communist Senator, Bernie Sanders, unveiled over the weekend that in order to pay for his socialist agenda, he would take serious action against the U.S. military if he becomes the next president. During a rally over the weekend in Brooklyn, New York, Sanders spoke to the crowd about his 2020 presidential campaign and the policies he supports.
He told the crowd that as president, he would enact policies that provide “free” healthcare to everyone as well as “free” tuition for those attending colleges and universities.
But where does the Vermont socialist plan on getting the money to fund his socialist agenda?
Sanders point-blank stated that he would make drastic cuts to the U.S. military.
“Today, we say to the military-industrial-complex that we will not continue to spend $700 billion a year on the military — more than the next 10 nations combined,” Sanders said.
“We’re going to invest in affordable housing, we’re going to invest in public education, we’re going to invest in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure — not more nuclear weapons and never-ending wars,” he added.
If he wins the 2020 election, Sanders is promising to slash military funding to pay for his socialist agenda. Leaving America vulnerable.
Democrats, Clinton supporters in particular, partly blame Sanders for her loss in 2016. They feel that by not embracing the party label, Sanders sowed a sense that there wasn’t much difference between the parties and, therefore, between Trump and Clinton.
Clinton, herself, wrote in her book What Happened that Sanders did “lasting damage” to her candidacy — and that he never wanted a Democrat to win.
“He didn’t get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House,” Clinton wrote, “he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party.”
She called him “fundamentally wrong” about the party, ticked off the things Democrats have done and noted, “I am proud to be a Democrat and I wish Bernie were, too.”
Clinton was referring to the fact that Sanders has filed as an Independent in the past. DNC rules specifically state that a Presidential candidate must have been a life long Dem to run under their party. I wonder if any of them will come after ole Bernie for that?
