He was the primary sponsor of 7 bills (that’s actually a really big number)

Other than fundraising, no. Legislatively nothing

He became a millionaire while serving as an elected official. Does that count?

He may have brushed his hair.

He convinced a bunch of morons to elect him to the senate

He has lived 78 years and never worked a day in his life.

If he hasn’t worked a day in his life than you might as well consider most other politicians in a state of comatose.

He was a union carpenter and a freelance journalist before becoming Mayor of Burlington.

He was fired from his job as a carpenter because he did shitty work. The guy was kicked out of a hippie commune because he was THAT lazy. But hey, he knows what’s best for us and our money.

You’re on the internet. Do a quick search yourself because whatever link I give you you will complain about.

Then site reliable sources. If that is a challenge for you, well that says more about the “facts” you say than me.

11/12/19 3:07 pm

You not liking a fact or it’s source doesn’t make it less true.

If a source is questionable, what they present as “facts” should be questioned.

As we were faced with an aging veteran population, Sanders passed a bill that allocated 5 billion dollars to the VA to hire more doctors and other healthcare professionals

He voted against the Iraq war every year but 2(one for hurricane Katrina relief and one for expansion of veteren benefits)

Thanks to a Sanders amendment in wall street reform, the fed faced it's first ever legally required audit that uncovered 16 trillion in near zero interest loans that went out to banks and other large corporations.

At his own expense Sanders has taken cancer patients by the bus load to Canada where they can afford their cancer meds

He created the cancer registry that has expanded to all 50 states that has become instrumental in cancer research.

And so on but you didn't know before, you won't remember later

One of the first cancer hospitals in the United States was Memorial in New York, formerly called the New York Cancer hospital, which was established in 1884. Their cancer registry started in 1949 as a continuous program.
Researching hospital cancer registries, a number of programs were found to have starting dates prior to 1946. The earliest reference years were:
1926 Yale-New Haven Hospital, CT
1930 Hartford, CT, VA Hospital, Portland Oregon and the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha
1933 University of Virginia Hospital at Charlottesville and 7 more in CT.
1935 Decatur Hospital, Decatur, GA
1936 Michigan University Hospital and the University of Southern California
1938 Iowa University Hospital

Big ray, you detract from the real issues of Sanders when you make broad statements such as this.

Sanders ideology is a cancer on America. Almost every location on the planet is running from the left right now......America appears to the the only place trying to run towards it - courtesy of the Democratic Party.

Give exact examples of lies he has said, Ray.

He’s deceived a lot of people. That’s a big accomplishment in his ideology.

Yeah. For example, he's the reason you can get one free credit report per year from all bureaus. He wrote the bill that overhauled the VA. He pressured Amazon and Disney into raising their wages to $15/hr. And actually, for pretty much every major mistake made by the US government over the past several decades, there's a video of Bernie Sanders warning against it.

What Bill number is that about the free credit report????

Bernie introduced HR 2546 on 6/19/2003 which would have given Americans a free credit report annually from any bureau. A week later the Republicans, who had a majority at the time in the House, countered with their own bill, HR 2622.
