An economics professor from the University of Massachusetts Amherst predicts a Bernie Sanders presidency would move this country forward in such a positive way that it would solve many of the problems of the U.S. He would increase the median income more than $22,000, create 26 million new jobs while the unemployment rate would fall to 3.8%. Gerald Friedman says Sanders plan is broad-based and designed to help the middle class and needy.
Without the figures put in place now by Friedman, isn't this what Bernie has been saying all along? It isn't pie-in-the-sky like most republicans call it--even Hillary Clinton--but rather a proposal that will work. How many years now have we heard from the GOP that cutting taxes will boost the economy, but have only seen near disasters like Sam Brownback, Governor of Kansas, who almost brought that state to its knees? It just doesn't work.
The Sanders' campaign calls Their candidate's thinking "big," exclaiming that no one has attempted such a challenge since Presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Johnson. Those of us who joined the Bernie Sanders Revolution from the beginning believed that he could do what he said and have become more convinced by the month. But what is important is, by the looks of the latest national polls, Clinton 44%, Sanders 42%, so does the rest of the country.
