Sanders makes a cliché-laden call for togetherness in a FoxNews.com op-ed. While radical and centrist Democrats argue over Biden’s budget blunder’s massive price tag, Sanders makes an unexpected call for unity.
He said that his legislation will “defend the interests of the elderly, children, sick, and impoverished.” Prescription medication costs should be reduced by 88%, Medicare should be expanded to include dental care, hearing aids, and eyeglasses by 84%, paid family and medical leave by 73%, and universal Pre-K by 67%. Sixty-seven percent say the federal government should raise taxes on high-income individuals and companies to help fund these critical services, which this measure accomplishes.
Following the failure of the Senate to approve a major spending plan for health care and other programs, Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders said that big pharmaceutical corporations spent “hundreds of millions of dollars” to oppose the bill. He made no mention of the long-standing resistance of his beloved trade unions to the government’s takeover of healthcare.
He claims that the fossil fuel sector is more concerned with safeguarding short-term profits than dealing with the existential issue of climate change. In a new article, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders claims that his planned healthcare overhaul will “stop the worldwide humiliation” of the US being the only major country that does not recognize paid family and medical leave as a human right. He then goes on a rant about how Republicans handed $2 trillion in tax benefits to “the affluent” a few years ago, nearly causing $32 million Americans to lose health insurance.
Furthermore, Sen. Cory Booker (D-New Jersey) claimed that Democrats are trapped in a divided Senate and called for bipartisanship to pass measures that would benefit working-class families. According to Booker’s reasoning, Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, both Democrats, will not back the plan with its current $1.5 trillion price tag.
