“I don’t know that we can squeeze any more people in here,” Sanders said as he looked out on the cheering, sign-waving crowd packing the convention hall. “Some people told me #Louisiana was a conservative state. I guess not.”

He argued that Sanders' plan to return to the 90% top income tax rates of the early 1950s was the right way to address income #inequality.

"After all the write offs, business expenses, mortgage interest deductions etc… My Taxable Income is less than half of my Gross Income.

"Add in my capital gains earnings at their super low tax rate even though my gross income is well over the top tax bracket my effective tax rate is usually around 17-18% every year and could actually be quite a bit lower if I put actual effort into (legal) tax avoidance strategies.

#Sanders2016 ... #Taxes
A self-described member of the 1% took to Reddit on Wednesday to explain why he would vote for 2016 presidential nomination hopeful Bernie Sanders, even though Sanders intends to raise taxes for the wealthy.

Nobody except a hand full of people actually paid 90%. Kennedy reduced rates, the economy excelled and the government took in more.

Different topic: taxes collected are not revenue. The USG creates the money it uses to pay for expenditures and taxed money simply disappears back into the void.

"We are here today to send a very loud and a very clear message to the United States Congress, the President of the United States, and corporate America," Democratic presidential candidate +Bernie Sanders​ bellowed before a crowd of striking low-wage workers in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. "In the richest country on the face of the earth, no one who works 40 hours a week should be living in poverty."

... the Democratic presidential candidate from Vermont has won legislative victory after victory on an issue that has been dear to him since his days as Burlington’s mayor.

That issue is the simultaneously benign and revolutionary expansion of federally qualified community #healthclinics.

Over the years, +Bernie Sanders​​​ has tucked away funding for health centers in appropriation bills signed by George W. Bush, into Barack Obama’s stimulus program, and through the earmarking process. But his biggest achievement came in 2010 through the Affordable Care Act. In a series of high-stakes legislative maneuvers, Sanders struck a deal to include $11 billion for health clinics in the law.

#Sanders2016
Despite the inherent limitations of a self-described democratic socialist who eschews the norms of Beltway fundraising, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has won legislative victory after victory on an issue that has been dear to him since his days as Burlington’s mayor.

Truth is that the two party system is currently really one party that's working against the people it's supposed to represent. Sure they seem to be doing things for you, but if you look at it from something other than an emotional standpoint, they're really screwing you. Divide and conquer is the rule here...

Speaking to largest crowd any campaign for president has yet seen, the field's most progressive candidate says "a grassroots movement of millions of people" must overcome power of "handful of wealthy campaign contributors."

#Sanders2016 ... +Bernie Sanders​
A crowd of approximately 10,000 people filled a sports arena to capacity in Wisconsin on Wednesday night in order to hear the person who has called for a "political revolution" in the United States explain why he should be the next president.

+Tyler Brown your question!: Are you officially on Clinton's staff, or just a consultant/contract shill? I'm no bullhorn for neither side.

Despite +Bernie Sanders​’ long history of #civilrights work, he had been largely going unnoticed among black voters, perhaps because of the fact that, in the US Senate, he represents a state that is 95% white.  That appears to be changing, however.

Rapper Killer Mike of Run the Jewels took to twitter on Monday to endorse Sanders, citing the senator’s call to restore the Voting Rights Act.  He also responded to a twitter user who worried that a vote for Sanders would be a vote taken from Clinton. 

“I cannot support another Clinton or bush ever,” Killer Mike tweeted.

#Sanders2016
As the media continues to downplay the odds of a Sanders presidency, the Vermont senator continues to bring huge crowds to his campaign stops and is catching up to media favorite Hillary Clinton at a pretty steady pace.
