Jane O'Meara Sanders said elite establishment figures from both political parties are afraid of her husband's policies promoting affordable health care and education, noting that the U.S. "already has socialism" -- but only for corporations.
Sanders, the wife of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, told Fox News Saturday, the "powers-that-be" in America are placing a shallow focus on her husband's "Democratic socialist" label instead of what they're really attacking -- his campaign policies. Jane Sanders said "corporate socialism" has benefited billionaires like President Donald Trump and Michael Bloomberg, while hard-working U.S. taxpayers end up paying for their business subsidies and bailouts. She rejected Joe Biden's claims that Bernie Sanders can't win by citing her husband's back-to-back popular vote victories in Iowa and New Hampshire.
"I think it's pretty obvious, Bernie Sanders is running a campaign that is 'not me, us' that's about about getting the working class a fair shake and being able to provide Medicare-for-all, affordable health care, affordable education and a Green New Deal. There are the powers-that-be and the status quo that don't want him to do those things," she said.
Remember that Socialism is People Helping People. Capitalism is people f*cking people.
I will take my chances with Bernie's Democratic Socialism. We need to 'spread the wealth' in the USA, rather than giving it to the millionaire, billionaires, and huge corporations.
I already voted today, via 'mail ballot.' My vote went to Bernie Sanders. I encourage all Floridians to do the same thing.
