Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 26, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"Then you look at the Republican budget. The Republican budget does nothing to address the real problems except to make them worse. One of the problems, to be very frank, and works to the Republicans’ advantage—and I have to say this, frankly—the Republican budget is so outrageous that when we explain it, people don’t believe what we are saying. Senator Durbin made the point—no debate here—if I am wrong, somebody jump up and correct me. The Republican budget eliminates the Affordable Care Act, right? It does that, and 16 million Americans lose their health insurance—16 million people have no health insurance. But that is not enough. The Republican budget cuts over $400 billion in Medicaid. That is another 11 million people losing their health insurance—16 plus 11 is 27 million people losing health insurance."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued March 25, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"Mr. President, let’s be frank. We live in a global economy. We need the best educated workforce in the world to compete. Yet we are making it harder and harder for middle-class families to send their kids to college. At the same time, we are saying to those young people who go to college: You are going to be living with an oppressive debt for decades—for decades."
