Sanders is right. Clinton's defense of taking Wall Street money is an insult to the intelligence of the voters. When defending the establishment, any excuse, however transparently false, is taken seriously and presented as a worthwhile idea. If Sanders were using such arguments to promote his ideas he would be derided by every corporate media outlet. He would be the laughingstock of every TV comedian. All those media outlets and comedians (or at least the vast majority of them) hold their tongues when absurdly mendacious arguments are made in favor of the establishment.

Quite amazing data. Women's average longevity after 50 has made little gains over the last 30 years. However, gap between rich and poor has been growing, so that the bottom three income deciles have actually seen their expected life span shorten.

For men the gap has also been growing, but the average has made some gains, so even the bottom decile has made a very small gain.

The difference in life spans between men and women has shrunk considerably.

From the New York Times, via Bernie Sanders. http://www.sanders.senate.gov/newsroom/must-read/disparity-in-life-spans-of-the-rich-and-the-poor-is-growing

The range of opinions within the US establishment on foreign policy is even more restricted than on domestic. Despite being quite conventional in his foreign policy views, it appears Sanders broke new, completely uncharted ground in Thursday's debate. The establishment is shocked to discover someone can think - even say out loud - that Kissinger, Richard Nixon's secretary of state, can be seen as anything other than a revered elder statesman.
At Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate in Milwaukee, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger became a surprise subject of contention.

If you want to watch Sanders "slam" Clinton for cozying up to Kissinger, you'd have to watch an ad first.

Sanders's establishment position on foreign policy. Why is North Korea "belligerent" for carrying out nuclear weapons development and launching satellites? If such activity is a sign of belligerence then many countries, and first and foremost the US, are belligerence.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 10 – Sen. Bernie Sanders submitted the following statement in support of the North Korea Sanctions and Policy Enhancement Act of 2016 to the Congressional record today:
