Bernie Sanders (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
On December 10, 2010, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont spoke for over eight hours on the floor of the Senate. He spoke passionately, honestly, bluntly. He talked about the disparity of income and opportunity in America, and how people all across the country can't afford food, heat, and medicine, while the richest people on earth live beside them. He talked about our crumbling roads and bridges, how our airports and railways are decades old, how water and sewer infrastructure is often a century or more old, and failing. And he talked about why and how we've found our country at a crossroads at this moment in history, and what we can do to find our way again.
As he spoke, and as the hours passed, word spread. Millions began to watch the speech online, until the crush of viewers crashed the Senate servers. Worldwide news coverage ensued.
The entire speech, unabridged and uncut, is included in this book. Worthwhile reading for any concerned citizen, and mandatory reading for anyone following politics in 2015, Senator Sanders's plea for common sense and fairness is sure to resonate for years to come.
