Bernie Sanders reveals his new government programs to be funded by new taxes, massive lawsuits, military cuts Bernie Sanders unexpectedly released a fact-sheet Monday night explaining that he'd pay for his sweeping new government programs through new taxes and massive lawsuits against the fossil fuel industry, as well as by slashing spending on the military, among other methods.
The move sought to head off complaints from Republicans and some rival Democrats that his plans were economically unrealistic, especially after a head-turning CBS News interview in which the frustrated Vermont senator said he couldn't "rattle off to you every nickel and every dime" about his proposed expenditures.
He released his plan on his website just minutes after promising to do so during a CNN town hall. Sanders could be challenged on his plans and have to explain them before a live TV audience as he and six other Democratic presidential hopefuls square off Tuesday night in South Carolina for the 10th Democratic debate.
In the meantime, Trump says Sotomayor, Ginsburg should recuse themselves from cases dealing with his administration In a remarkable public rebuke, President Trump late Monday called on Supreme Court justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg to recuse themselves from any cases involving his administration over their past comments.
The president has proven in the past that he is not bashful about criticizing justices, but he seemed to be particularly bothered by a recent dissent by Sotomayor hinting that conservative-leaning justices have a bias towards his administration.

Tax the taxpayers more taxes and give stuff away to freeloaders.
That Sanders has so much support is frightening.
Burney pledging to kill fracking makes Pennsylvania a lock for Trump I’d think.
Add in a crisis or two (Coronavirus, stock market 20+% correction, antibiotic shortages), along with unchallenged voter fraud and intimidation, and that's how you buy and steal an election.
^ignore the quote - copy & paste fail
People have been convinced that it was either never tried or that the correct people werent in charge or both.
Theyll prattle on and on, for instance, about Trotsky or Lenin as if they werent completely down with Terrors and Progroms.
Add for nightmarish proportions the fact that Clinton has just announced she will support Bernie if he wins the nomination.
I.e. "I would accept the VP slot." This with a guy who has a poor ticker.
Say Trump does beat this idiot and I am praying for that what happens in 4 years. We need start thinking long term. I Sanders is toast if he loses this but the uproar will be worse that it was when Hitlery lost.
Head off complaints???!!!
Generally the idea that you could destroy the military and wipe out the oil industry and tax Americans out of their standard of living would be controversial.
I guess not. Apparently you just have to publish a plan, realistic or not.
They used to ramble about that i front of Columbia in NYC.
No one did it RIGHT!!
Not in the hundreds of times it’s been done.
But they are.
“””President Trump late Monday called on Supreme Court justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg to recuse themselves from any cases involving his administration over their past comments””
Pres Trump is right, they should ...but won’t
Agree there’s no obvious candidate to succeed Trump. He’s truly one of a kind.
Rigged lawsuits against the fossil fuel companies is just partial confiscation and de facto partial nationalization of those companies.
Long term, America turns into the Second Beast of Revelations. That’s what happens once Trump is gone. Your best bet, at this point, is get your house in order.
“That Sanders has so much support is frightening.”
And when the fossil fuel industry files bankruptcy, which industry will this old communist rape next?
The rats should never have let him run with them. Should have been third party.
Within the DNC, it’s alarming but not surprising. Probably too much of the support is from millenials looking to get forgiven student loans. They don’t show up to vote. So not frightening, really. Autoworkers now off the dole and back on the job are more motivated.
