Meet the essential Bernie Sanders an authentic and uncompromising champion of the people. Independent United States Senator Bernie Sanders with a thirty-five-year career in public service, first as Burlington, Vermont’s mayor, then as Vermont’s sole representative to Congress, and currently as a United States senator is now campaigning to become president of the United States. His goal is to build a movement to take back our country from the rich and powerful, and return it to its rightful owners—we, the American people. Sanders’ common sense, populist message is resonating with Democrats, Republicans, independents, as well as ordinary working-and middle-class Americans from all walks of life, including millennials, seniors, veterans, immigrants, environmentalists, union workers, and more. In this short, accessible audiobook, author Jonathan Tasini draws heavily from Sanders’ ample public record of speeches, statements, and interviews, and couples his working-class spirit with specific legislation he has championed on a number of core proposals that comprise a broader people’s agenda for America, including: • A national, single-payer health care system • Free public higher education • Taking on wealth and income inequality • Preserving Social Security • Caring for our veterans • Ensuring civil rights for all • Combatting climate change • Reforming Wall Street, and much more. The Essential Bernie Sanders and His Vision for America is a must-listen for anyone who shares a vision for a forward-looking, sustainable, and more just United States of America, and is eager to change the course of history.
