"The crowd at DU Saturday night rivaled the 5,500 who heard Hillary Clinton speak at New York City’s Roosevelt Island a week ago.

Sanders has emerged as a serious competitor for Hillary Clinton in the race for the presidential nomination for the Democratic party for 2016. A self-described democratic socialist, Sanders, 73, is a U.S. Senator for Vermont and has been in Congress for more than 22 years."

“This campaign is not about me,” he said. “It is not about Hillary Clinton or any other candidate,” he added. “This campaign is about you, your kids and your parents. It is about creating a political movement of millions of people who stand up and loudly proclaim that this nation belongs to all of us and not just a handful of billionaires.”

She was finally forced into saying that she would have voted no on TPP

One poll has Bernie within the margin in NH, the main thing is the GOP can't win the WH due to the age of 4 of the justices and even though it seems a easy win like 2000 seemed it hardly ever happens that the same party wins 3 in a row.

The middle class is shrinking and our private pension system is failing. But we still have Social Security, right?

Sort of. If you or someone you love relies on their earned benefits, you know how difficult it is to maintain a decent standard of living on Social Security.

We can do better.

On July 13, the White House will hold its once-a-decade White House Conference on Aging. This is our opportunity to put expanding Social Security on the agenda.

Eighteen organizations have come together to support a petition to expand Social Security. Please click here to add your name.
