Mune: Why I believe in Bernie Sanders

I am supporting Bernie Sanders for president because I believe him when he says he will work to achieve economic, racial, social and environmental justice. I believe him because he has been a consistent champion for the people for 40 years.

He will do this by expanding Medicare to include all Americans, and by negotiating drug prices with the pharmaceutical industry.

Bernie will put a moratorium on the inhumane practices at the border, from day one of his presidency. He vows to reunite all the children with their families, and I believe him.

Bernie also has detailed plans to repair and rebuild the Veterans Administration infrastructure, and to expand Social Security and Medicaid. You can learn how these plans will be paid for by visiting Bernie’s website.

Bernie is committed to reducing carbon emissions throughout the world through his Green Climate Fund, and by rejoining the Paris Agreement, thereby reasserting our country’s participation in the global climate change discussion.

Bernie Sanders has worked his way up from very successful mayor of Burlington, Vermont in the 1980s, to Vermont’s member of Congress, to now serving his third term in the US Senate.

Bernie appeals to people across the political spectrum. Sixty-seven percent of Vermont’s voters from all parties voted for Bernie Sanders in 2018. He is the No. 1 choice for the next generation.

I write this letter to support those of us that believe in government of the people, by the people and for the people.
