Bernie Tweets

  • It's a disgrace that the tax dodging of multinational corporations costs the U.S. approximately $111 billion each year. This must end.
  • What the pope is saying and I'm saying is that our lives should be about more than just the accumulation of wealth.
    Pope Francis' Message: The Idolatry of Money
    In America, I see people who are worth billions of dollars pushing for policies that make the rich richer and everyone else poorer. That’s not what human life should be about.

  • It's a national disgrace that 70 percent of undergraduates leave college with heavy debts that will burden them for decades.
  • Bernie Sanders joins world leaders, celebrities in call for overhaul of global drug policy
  • 62% of Americans have less than $1,000 in their savings accounts and unlike big banks they don't get to go to Congress for a bailout check.
  • It's alarming that just 62 individuals have the same wealth as 3.6 billion people. That's nearly half of humanity.
  • Bernie Sanders: I annotated a speech by Pope Francis
  • If corporations can be American when they need a bailout from the American people, then they can pay their fair share of U.S. taxes too.
