Presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will be continuing his campaign bid as of now to try and win the Democrat Party’s nomination. Senator Sanders took a pounding on super Tuesday and lost some big states in yesterday’s primaries. Today, during his press conference, he said that he, ‘looked forward to his debate with his friend Joe Biden’. Sanders said,
“On Sunday, I very much look forward to the debate in Arizona with my friend Joe Biden and let me be very frank as to the questions I will be asking Joe.” He continued, “Joe, what are you going to do for the 500,000 people who go bankrupt in our country because of medically related debt and what are you going to do for the working people of this country and small business people, who are paying on average 20% of their incomes for healthcare?
“Joe what are you going to do to end the absurdity of the United States of America being the only major country on earth where healthcare is not a human right? Are you really going to veto a Medicare for all bill if it is passed in Congress? Joe how are you going to respond to the scientist who tell us that we have 7 or 8 years remaining to transform our energy system before irreparable harm takes place to this planet because of the ravages of climate change?
“Joe at a time when most young people need a higher education to make it into the middle class, what are you going to do to make sure that all of our people can go to college or trade school, regardless of their income and what are you going to do about the millons of people who are struggling with outrageous levels of student debt?
“Joe at a time when we have more people in jail than Communist China, a nation four times our size, what are you going to do to end mass incarceration in a racist criminal justice system? What are you going to do to end the terror that millions of undocumented people experience right now because of our broken and inhumane immigration system?
“Joe what are you going to do about the fact that we have the highest rate of childhood poverty of almost any major country on earth and are living with the fact that 500,000 people tonight are homeless and 18 millon families are spending over half of the income to put a roof over their heads. Joe, importantly, what are you going to do to end the absurdity of billionaires buying elections and the three wealthiest people in America owning more wealth than the bottom half?
He went on to say that ‘Donald Trump must be defeated’ and would do ‘everything in his power to make that happen’.
