    A day before President Trump addressed the annual gathering of the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Chicago, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) gave some rather shocking advice to a young black student at Benedict College in regards to how he should behave around a police officer if he's pulled over while driving. .@BernieSanders to black student on how to handle getting pulled over by the police: “Identify who the police officer is - respect what they are doing so that you don’t get shot in the back of the head.” — chris evans (@notcapnamerica) October 26, 2019 "I...

    A New York Times opinion column acquaints humanity with the injustice of forbidding the vote to 16- and 17-year-olds -- who, nevertheless, would gain the franchise once a budding movement to that end came to fruition and then would impose the superior wisdom of the young by handing the presidency, so we are entitled to infer, to Sen. Bernie Sanders. The well-ripened alliance between various young folks and snowy-haired Sanders -- a 78-year-old heart attack victim going on age 5, to judge by his simplistic politics -- is hard to sort out. The truth seems to be that old-time political...

    (CNN) — On Tuesday night, just days removed from acknowledging that he had suffered a heart attack less than a week ago on the campaign trail, Bernie Sanders said something remarkable. "We were doing (in) some cases five or six meetings today, three or four rallies and town meetings and meeting with groups of people. I don't think I'm going to do that. But I certainly intend to be actively campaigning. I think we can change the nature of the campaign a bit. Make sure I have the strength to do what needs to be done." It doesn't take much...

    Bernie Sanders plans to hit the ground running, claiming in the first interview since his heart attack that he 'misspoke' when he was 'fatigued' from so many campaign rallies. The 78-year-old candidate told NBC News on Wednesday that he will continue to run a 'vigorous campaign.' 'I misspoke the other day. I said a word I should not have said and media drives me a little bit nuts to make a big deal about it,' Sanders said during his interview where he was joined by his wife, Jane Sanders. 'We're going to get back into the groove of a very...

    Bernie Sanders began the slow process of reintroducing himself to the 2020 campaign on Tuesday, venturing outside his Vermont home briefly to say he'd been more fatigued than usual in recent weeks and was boneheaded for ignoring symptoms that might have foretold his heart attack last week. But he provided no hints on how he'll restart his suspended White House bid. 'I must confess, I was dumb,' the 78-year-old Vermont senator said, speaking in soft, calm tones with his wife, Jane O'Meara Sanders, looking on behind him. 'Thank God, I have a lot of energy, and during this campaign I've...

    Bernie Sanders was hospitalized today for "chest discomfort" and it was discovered he had blockage in 2 of his coronary arteries. The doctors placed a couple of stents in the arteries and Sanders should be okay in a couple of days.But the 78-year-old Sanders is making Democrats nervous. It appears that Democrats have finally realized their top three candidates aren't exactly spring chickens and that they risk much by placing their faith in a candidate who, despite apparent good health, might have an "incident" at any time, making them vulnerable to charges that they're just too old.The Hill: Former...

    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders hauled in a whopping $25.3 million during the July-September third quarter of fundraising, his presidential campaign announced on Tuesday morning. The massive fundraising figure is up more than $7 million from his second-quarter numbers. Pete Buttigieg’s campaign reported early Tuesday morning that the South Bend, Indiana mayor raised $19.1 million the past three months. While impressive, the candidate’s fundraising haul is down from the $24.8 million he brought in during the second quarter, which was the highest among the record-setting field of Democratic White House hopefuls during the April-June quarter.

    Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders on Tuesday rolled out his plan to levy an “extreme wealth tax” on millionaires and billionaires, which he plans to enforce through the creation of a “national wealth registry.” “Today, the United States has more income and wealth inequality than almost any major country on Earth, and it is worse now than at any time since the 1920s,” Sanders said in his proposal. Sanders’ annual tax on the top 0.1 percent would apply to Americans with a net worth of over $32 million, or about 180,000 households, and would raise approximately $4.35 trillion over...

    Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders proposed an annual wealth tax topping out at 8% for the richest Americans, offering the farthest-reaching Democratic plan to pay for expanded government programs and break up concentrated fortunes. Mr. Sanders’s plan would hit more households and raise more money than the tax proposed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, his chief rival for progressive voters. According to an analysis by economists who consulted with both campaigns, Mr. Sanders’s plan would generate $4.35 trillion over a decade, compared with Ms. Warren’s $2.75 trillion. Mr. Sanders’s plan would increase federal revenue by about 10%, all from around...

The campaign chose $81 billion based on a 2018 Health Affairs study. Researchers found one in six Americans have past-due medical bills on their credit report totaling $81 billion. Fifty-three percent of those bills amount to less than $600 each....

    Sen. Bernie Sanders says American taxpayers should fund programs in “poor countries” to help women get abortions. During a CNN town hall event in which Sanders and other Democrats r discussed plans to combat climate change, an audience member asked: “Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it’s crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and...

See their plans to erase student debt. It's insane, it'll cost taxpayers a ridiculous amount, but a Democrat who opposes erasing student debt will have to fight an uphill battle to win the nomination. Yes, even if his name happens to be Joe Biden. Well, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has just upped the ante. He now promises to erase $81 billion in medical debt. I kid you not.
