Corporate Tax Cuts Don't Create Jobs
A new Institute for Policy Studies analysis of major US corporations paying less than 20 percent of earnings in federal corporate income taxes shows that more than half cut jobs since 2008 and increased CEO pay to more than $13 million. Among the companies that slashed jobs? Well their CEOs made more - $15 million.

CWA Workers Deserve a Fair Contract
This week, I met with several AT&T workers who are members of the Communications Workers of America. While AT&T is making record profits of over $1 billion a month, they refuse to negotiate a fair new contract with their workers, cutting 12,000 jobs in the U.S. and shipping many of them overseas. This is even while paying a corporate tax rate of only 8% between 2005-2015. That’s not acceptable. I stand with the CWA Union members and all workers across the United States.

Why I Voted Against The Sactions Bill
While I support sanctions on Russia and North Korea, I voted against the sanctions bill last week because it contains sanctions on Iran that I believe could endanger the Iran nuclear agreement. This agreement was President Obama’s most important foreign policy achievement, and President Trump has made clear his intention to destroy it. Progressives must get mobilized to protect it, just as we did with the Affordable Care Act!

Millennials Dream Big and Don't Accept the Status Quo
We're in the midst of very difficult times, where we are constantly bombarded by depressing news coming from the Trump administration, but what gives me hope is this new generation of young people who dream big and do not want to settle for the status quo. They look around and they say, Why are we the only major country not to guarantee health care to all of our people? Why do we still accept racism and sexism?"

It is no secret that I disagree with Donald Trump on just about everything, but I have to say his decision regarding DACA is the ugliest and most cruel decision ever made by a president of the United States in the modern history of this country.

Dairy in Vermont: 'A Difficult Situation'
Vermont now has less than 820 dairy farms – down from more than 6,000 farms in 1965. Longtime dairy farmer Bill Rowell of Sheldon, Vermont, explains: “The issue that we have, consistently, year after year, is the price of milk. And the volatility that exists in the price of milk is disheartening when you can work an entire year and borrow money to produce milk. It just doesn’t make sense.” Rowell is hoping for a solution. “All we are asking for is that we put our heads together ... and come up with a program that will benefit the farmer.” As Rowell notes, when Vermont farms struggle, so does Vermont’s rural economy.

Sen. Bernie Sanders Visits Vermont's Champlain Islands Health Center
The Champlain Islands Health Center in South Hero is Vermont’s newest community health center. Bernie recently visited the health center, which offers patients medical care, mental health care and, in the near future, dental care on a sliding pay scale. Bernie has long championed Federally Qualified Health Centers – or FQHCs – as a way to increase access to high-quality and affordable health care. FQHCs already provide excellent care to nearly 25 million people across the country. Just this week, Bernie introduced a bill that would double the number of patients they can serve over the next decade. Here in Vermont, roughly one out of four Vermonters get their primary health care at the more than 50 community health center sites in our state.

Sen. Sanders Visits New Federally Qualified Health Center in South Hero, Vermont
Sen. Bernie Sanders visited the new federally funded health center in South Hero, Vermont, Tuesday afternoon. “Today, one in four Vermonters get their primary health care at more than 50 sites across the state. Many of these community health centers also provide dental and behavioral health care services, and some offer low-cost prescription drugs. I want every person in this state to be able to go into a doctor’s office when they need to because I think it's the right thing to do,” Bernie said. “And it saves the system money. You don’t end up in an emergency room when you get to a doctor when you need to.”
