Bill Maher presents Bernie Sanders with a golden opportunity to attack Hillary Clinton about the current email, but as usual, Bernie Sanders chooses to not talk about it. Also, he remains very consistent in his entire message.

Instead of attacking Hillary, Bernie chooses to attack a more suitable target; Donald Trump.

Sorry, but the Super delegates have never overruled the will of the people. Like it or not, Hillary has more delegates and more votes.

Bernie Sanders makes a comparison between poor people and the more affluent, when it comes to life expectancy. Senator Sanders claims that poverty and income level have a direct effect on how long people live. He also gives some staggering statistics to prove his case.

Frankly, I don't know why any woman would be a member of the GOP. The GOP has shown itself to be a party that wants to control them.

I am an activist in the disability rights movement, and a writer. I live in Berkeley, CA
Introduction
I was born in a small town in Pennsylvania, called Bear Lake, on December 22 1955.  I graduated from Corry Area High School in 1973.  I attended Edinboro State College from 1977-1979.

I relocated to Berkeley, California in 1980, so I could live independently, something that was nearly impossible, in Pennsylvania.  I graduated from Berkeley City College in 2006 with two Associate Degrees, one in English and the other in Liberal Arts.
