The Failing Middle Class Endorsement of Senator Bernie Sanders
I endorse Senator Bernie Sanders because he is the only candidate whose policies focus directly on benefiting lower and middle income families. From guaranteeing Health Care as a right to everyone (not almost everyone) through a single-payer system, to putting in action a real plan to begin to raise the federal minimum wage to $15/Hr, to creating a new; necessary; FDR-style; jobs program, I believe Senator Sanders is the only candidate who can accomplish dethroning the establishment. If we take those three issues and combine them with real infrastructure and educational investment in low income communities, as Senator Sanders has proposed; the American population would be benefited exponentially.
As a nation we are only as strong as our poor, and currently in America our poor are dying and more, one-time, middle-class families are falling into poverty plus many of those who fell into poverty back in 2008–09 have yet to make it out. Strengthening our poor and our middle class — who, like myself, are more like the upper-lower class — will strengthen the backbone of this economy and this country. Senator Sanders is the only candidate who passionately wants to overturn Citizens United. I envision a Clinton presidency forgetting to do so because she accepts so much money from those who benefit most from it. I envision a Senator Sanders presidency as one who will fight until the end of his term(s) to overturn it.
Senator Sanders authentic views on education NOT incarceration as well as believing Marijuana possession should not be a Federal crime combined with real criminal justice reform and investment in the community will greatly begin to improve the economic and educational status, as well as the relationship and political efficacy of our minority Americans. I believe Senator Sanders authentic, impassioned, and “revolutionary” view of the American government going back to representing its people — not its lobbyists or its billionaires — is integral to recreating a sustainable American middle class.
A Senator Sanders presidency is integral to helping finally decrease the income inequality gap by creating a focus on lowering the percentage of the Population who is currently living under the poverty line which is currently at 14.8% through circular policies of campaign finance reform, criminal justice reform, infrastructure investment, and universal healthcare. A vote for Senator Sanders is a vote for creating an economically stable America that truly represents EVERYONE. #feelthebern
