10 Things You Didnt’t Know About Bernie Sanders

bernie_2

Bernie is no conservative or liberal, but both.

He is economically responsible and pro-business like the Republicans (claim to be), but also socially responsible and pro-people like the Democrats.

As mayor of Burlington, he ran a tight ship on a tight budget, grew the economy, and attracted local business by creating trade associations, giving new entrepreneurs start-up funding, and offering technical assistance.

Some Republicans even said he managed to “out-Republican the Republicans.”

Yet he also protected low-wage workers, financed training programs for women, implemented neighborhood planning assemblies (NPAs), raised taxes on business, and created organizations to empower the people, including a Youth Office, an Arts Council, and a Women’s Council.
