Occupy Wall Street
"I think they're really touching a nerve," Sen. Bernie Sanders said Tuesday of protests on Wall Street that have inspired demonstrations from Burlington, Vt., to Los Angeles. "The nerve is that the average American understands that as a result of the greed and the recklessness and the illegal behavior on Wall Street, these guys plunged us into the horrendous recession that we're in right now." Even Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke allowed that there was "excessive risk taking" by Wall Street when Sanders questioned him on Tuesday about the root causes of the recession and the concerns voiced by protesters. "They blame, with some justification, the financial sector with getting us into this mess," Bernanke told another member of the Joint Economic Committee. "I can't blame them," he added.

"Are Corporations Really People?"
Last year, the Supreme Court made a disastrous ruling which upended our democracy by unleashing a tsunami of corporate spending in our elections. The Citizens United ruling has radically changed our democracy -- further tilting the balance of power toward corporate America. Under the guise of the First Amendment, which protects free speech, the Citizens United decision allows billionaires, powerful companies and their executives to put unlimited sums of money into campaigns without even having to be identified. What it essentially says is corporations and billionaires can sit in a room and decide who is going to become the president of the United States, a U.S. senator, a congressperson, or governor. That is not what this country is supposed to be about. Five hundred people packed into a high school auditorium in central Vermont on March 5 to hear from an expert panel, including: nationally-syndicated radio host Thom Hartmann, Ben & Jerry's ice cream founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, Vermont State Sen. Ginny Lyons, Vermont Law School's constitutional law expert, Prof. Cheryl Hanna, and Rob Weissman, the president of Public Citizen. The overwhelming attendance indicates that interest in this issue is extremely high. It demonstrates that there are thousands of Vermonters and millions of Americans who are worried about the virtually limitless amounts of corporate cash that is flooding our political system and are determined to do they can to take on big money and preserve our democracy.

Sen. Sanders Holds Town Meeting On the Future of the Post Office
More than 300 people jammed Sen. Bernie Sanders' town meeting at Montpelier High School Nov. 6 focused on how to save the U.S. Postal Service. Sanders (I-Vt.) said he will introduce legislation this week to address the Postal Service's financial woes without resorting to drastic cutbacks in service and massive layoffs. He blamed the Postal Service's money troubles largely on accounting issues, including a law requiring it to set aside retiree health and retirement benefits far in advance. Sanders criticized Postal Service management for not focusing on smarter ways to solve their financial problems. "Our goal must be to make the post office smarter and more competitive. We should not be engaged in a series of actions which could eventually lead to the destruction of the Postal Service," he said.

Elections Have Consequences
The clock is ticking on a deadline for Congress to raise the debt ceiling, but no breakthrough was in sight after a week of daily meetings at the White House. Sizing up what he called "the craziness and chaos," Sen. Bernie Sanders assessed the options. His No. 1 choice is a 50-50 deficit- reduction package that would match spending cuts with more revenue from the wealthy. As a practical matter, he allowed, "it ain't gonna happen." Another option favored by some hard-line House Republicans would be to do nothing and let the United States, for the first time in history, default on its debts. That "very bad" choice would result in untold economic consequences including widespread job losses and higher interest rates on homes and cars. "It is a bad deal. We must not default," Sanders said. Where's that leave us?
