Bernie is calling them as he sees them:


Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, today released a blistering new report detailing how the Republican budget plan is based on budgetary gimmicks.

“Instead of being honest and upfront about their goals, the Republicans have used a number of budgetary gimmicks to cover-up the devastating impact that their budget will have on the lives of ordinary Americans,” Sanders said. “I find it particularly offensive that Republicans, who are demanding massive cuts in Medicaid, education, nutrition and health care in order to move toward a balanced budget, have no problem adding $38 billion to the deficit through the off-budget Overseas Contingency Operations fund. That is hypocrisy pure and simple.”

Go Bernie!

Although I agree with his premise sbout the Republicans and their spending budget…… Which is obviously complete farce….I'm not of the mind that him backing the Democrats in their budget is any better…

Surely he can see the both of their Budgets are padded and disguised to conceal what they're doing

If he was truly being objective he wouldn't be advocating for either side….The independents in this country need to stop catering to either party and start coming up with more solutions…

There are some that are that they are getting the coverage.....

If there is any doubt whatsoever from anyone… That these parties are not Now one in the same… Look at Jed bush and his voting record… And look at the Democrats in their voting record….You can often see that they fall on the same lines…

We don't have two parties as many of said for many years we have one party with two names…… It is never been more apparent than the last two election cycles

How can anybody still be a part of either Party ?

Obviously, the Kool aid is flowing in two flavors.

Here is the video that goes along with it.

This is the reason why so many in DC don't like Bernie he points out the scam they are running.

Here is the extended version where he really chews them out.

Over the years I have voted for both parties because I vote for who I think is best for the job. But we really need more than just two parties getting all the spotlight.

... this is the first budget we've had since Obama took office.

So, we go from not having an official budget, just a rubber stamp of "Yeah, what we did last year ..." and of course there weren't any gimmicks involved there *wink, wink, nudge nudge* to a formal budget and NOW he's upset over it?

Where was his outrage when there was no budget at all which was flat out unconstitutional?!

I agree with you I was listening to Glenn Beck the other day and he was saying how the reason why none of the independents ever win is because everyone stands around and says "well they can't win "and nobody ever votes for them so they end up voting for establishment people…… Like he said if you want change stop voting for the parties ...

Of course the Democrats would throw him under the bus after all he was a Republican.

Thanks for posting this, S&F for you.

Bernie Sanders tells it like it is. I like his brutal honesty. I wish he'd run for President. I'd vote for him in a heartbeat.

No it's not.
Fiscal Year 2014 Budget
2015 United States federal budget

We have had a budget for every year Obama has been in office.

As Congress votes on the federal budget this week, the Senate nixed a measure on Tuesday by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to rebuild our crumbling roads and bridges and support millions of good-paying construction jobs—by eliminating absurd tax loopholes for the wealthy.


The tax loopholes targeted by Sanders' amendment let corporations and wealthy Americans shift jobs and profits overseas, often to offshore tax havens like the Cayman Islands. Nearly $100 billion is lost annually to offshore tax dodging, according to the U.S. Treasury.

Well I guess he could be called bias for not attacking his own bill, But anyone doing so well....

...you know.

As for both parties being corporate owned I agree, to many Independents are just R's or D's that the party is an inconvenience so they take their party values and run as independents.

More parties; thats what my signature line is about It is time to think about a pirate for president!

More parties and parties that are not being crashed by R's & D's!

No we haven't. They just used procedural tricks to deem the previous year's budget into place, and this has been done since Obama took office.

That isn't actually the formal budget process that is supposed to have taken place.

Oh, Obama makes a show of releasing a budget, and the Congress votes it down ... almost unanimously. That's how bad O's budgets are. Maybe one person in all of Congress votes for them.

After the BS scams of "Veterans" bills that Sanders put forth with Harry Reid, why would anyone trust him either? He is just as big a tool as Reid/Boehner.
