Bernie Sanders Explains It All

If you can’t read the graphics, here’s what it says:

It was posted by a group calling themselves “The Christian Left.”

 

“This country does in fact have a serious deficit problem. But the reality is that the deficit was caused by two wars — unpaid for. It was caused by huge tax breaks for the wealthiest people in this country. It was caused by a recession as [a] result of the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on Wall Street. And if those are the causes of the deficit, I will be damned if we’re going to balance the budget on [the] backs of the elderly, the sick, the children, and the poor. That’s wrong.”

— Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Senate Budget Committee, 11-18-2011

 

Right you are, Bernie!
