Bernie Sanders has launched the “first major gesture of opposition” against a Donald Trump presidency.
According to sources, Democratic Congress members received a letter signed by Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) asking them to join Sanders on Jan. 15 in organizing rallies to protest the GOP devastating plans for America.
‘Beginning in January, it is likely that Republican leaders in Congress will follow through on their threats to ram through a budget bill that will severely undermine the health care needs of the American people.’
The letter included a list of a few ways the Trump administration will dismantle healthcare, and social security. Thus, giving huge tax breaks to the rich.
Sanders’ ability to organize and rally support from voters on the left has finally been recognized with a new position in the Democratic party. Sanders is wasting no time in leading the first outreach effort to push back against Trump.
‘Millions of Americans voted for Donald Trump after he promised not to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. He must be held to his promises and should veto any legislation which cuts these vital and necessary health programs.’
Way to go, Sanders!
