Breaking the Deal: Live Town Hall on the Iran Nuclear Agreement
Sen. Bernie Sanders will be joined by regional, security and nonproliferation experts to discuss how Trump’s decision will impact U.S. foreign policy in the short term and the long term. They will discuss how after nearly two decades of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, Trump’s decision to pull out of the deal moves the U.S. closer to yet another conflict in the Middle East. And at a time when the United States spends more on defense than the next 10 countries combined, Sanders and his panel will consider alternatives to the hawkish Washington foreign policy establishment that remains committed to never-ending military interventions.

Our National Priorities: Endless Defense Spending or Working Families?
Over and over again, myRepublican colleagues and some of my Democratic colleagues have come down to the Senate floor to complain about the $21 trillion national debt. Over and over again, our Republican friends tell us that we cannot possibly afford to join the rest of the industrialized world and guarantee health care as a right to every man, woman and child through a Medicare for All program. We have been told that we cannot afford to make public colleges and universities tuition free, or to make sure that everyone in America has access to affordable housing, childcare, or a good job that pays a living wage with good benefits. Even though over half of older Americans have no retirement savings we have been told we need to cut Social Security. But, when it comes to spending $716 billion on the military - more than the next ten countries combined - all of a sudden there is a deafening silence from my Republican colleagues about the deficit.

Should We Really Be Deregulating Banks?

Job Training for Vermont Students
Last Monday, Sen. Sanders spoke with students from Spaulding High School, Central Vermont Career Center and Randolph Technical Career Center about job options after high school. It is critically important that our youth understand what kind of education or training they need for the jobs that are available in our changing economy. I was joined by three growing Vermont companies that not only have job openings, but also provide some type of job training assistance. We need to involve young people in discussions like this so they can make informed decisions about their futures.

Inequality in America: A National Town Hall
We live in the richest country in the history of the world, but that reality means little because much of that wealth is controlled by a tiny handful of individuals while more than 40 million Americans live in poverty. The issue of wealth and income inequality is the great moral issue of our time, it is the great economic issue of our time, and it is the great political issue of our time. Tonight, Sen. Bernie Sanders, in partnership with The Guardian, NowThis, The Young Turks and Act.tv, will present a live town hall event on the rise of the oligarchy and the collapse of the American middle class. Sanders will speak with director Michael Moore, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, economist Darrick Hamilton and other guests about the 40-year decline of the middle class and possible solutions to the growing crisis of income and wealth inequality in America.
