Sanders: Biden’s Proposals Don’t ‘Go Far Enough’

July 15, 2020

Tuesday on PBS NewsHour, lifelong communist Sen. Bernie Sanders complained that empty-suit presidential candidate Joe Biden’s proposals are “a significant step forward” but don’t “go far enough.”

“I don’t think they go far enough,” Sanders said. “And the people who are representing the progressive community on the task forces don’t think these proposals go far enough. But the answer is to elect Joe Biden and then to strengthen our grassroots movement to make sure that, in all respects, the environment, the economy, health care, we have a government that represents all of us, and not just the few.

“But I think it is very hard for anybody to seriously look at these proposals [on health care, climate change, education, and the economy] and not to see that, if these proposals were to be implemented, Joe Biden would be the most progressive president since FDR,” Sanders added. “It’s a significant step forward, but, in truth, it’s not all that I would like.”

That’s because Sanders wants nothing less than Barack Obama‘s “fundamental transformation” of the U.S.
