Today's News from Sen. Bernie Sanders:
-Postal Service: Sen. Bernard Sanders hopes Congress will prevent the closings of more than 250 mail processing facilities around the country, including one in White River Junction. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe proposed closing the sorting facilities, as well as 3,700 mostly rural post offices; ending overnight delivery; and eradicating Saturday home delivery to save money, but agreed to the delay after discussions with Capitol Hill, according to a Valley News article published Monday in the Times Argus and Rutland Herald.

-Saving Democracy: Sen. Sanders is taking aim at big corporations and their ability to influence elections, WCAX-TV reported. Sanders will appear on the Colbert Report this week as he promotes his proposal for a constitutional amendment in response to the 2010 Supreme Court decision striking down a corporate campaign spending ban, The Associated Press reported.

State of the Union: Vermont high school students still have a chance to participate in an essay contest about the state of the union. Sen. Sanders is sponsoring the second annual writing competition as a way to get Vermont's young people engaged in national issues. More than 225 students from 20 schools participated last year - writing about issues including the declining middle class, climate change, and health care reform, WCAX-TV reported.

[Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, benefiting New England, which Obama has cut dramatically.] It's an important safety net. I'm not against having a safety net for those who are most in need."
