Letter: Bernie the agenda setter

Published: 8/16/2019 12:01:24 AM

Bernie Sanders has set the agenda on issues that the public cares most about: climate change, health care and political corruption.

His ability to speak about these issues is reflected in his donor base that is spread all over the country. A recent New York Times map depicting comparative donor support showed Bernie with more than 760,000 individual donors nationwide – almost double his nearest competitor.

In the most recent Democratic debate, Bernie clearly showed that he wants to be president. He has also stated that as president he is determined to travel the country to advocate for his policies. In fact, that is the only way that the multi-billion-dollar lobbying stranglehold on our democracy can be overcome so the public’s voice can be heard and their concerns addressed legislatively.

Bernie has clearly communicated his vision for our great nation. As president, he will set clear goals and listen to the American people. He is an experienced legislator who understands the federal government and what is needed to accomplish his goals.

Finally, poll after poll shows Bernie beating Donald Trump in a head-to-head competition in the critical battleground states that he also won in the 2016 Democratic primaries.

We live in unprecedented times with unprecedented challenges. The clock is ticking on the climate, and we have a president who has said climate change is a hoax. We need bold leadership to change the dangerous course our nation is on. Bernie is that candidate, and this is his time.
