(1-minute read) EASY TO OVERLOOK 49 AND 50
Sen. Bernie Sanders has exploded back on the scene, raising $6 million on his first day after announcing his run for president.
His social media team was still trying to get out of the starting gate, however, with their map of “ALL 50 STATES” that excluded Alaska and Hawaii, had Nevada squeezing out California, and Oregon bulging into the offshore Cascade Subduction.
The Socialist Sanders says this time, he’ll win, and it will be a populist movement.
“In the last year, more American workers went on strike than in any year in nearly 3 decades. When we stand together and fight, we can accomplish anything. We can transform this country from the bottom on up,” he said on Twitter.
He’s also going after the older American vote: “At a time when half of older Americans over the age of 55 have no retirement savings, our job is to expand Social Security to make sure that everyone in this country can retire with the dignity they have earned and everyone with a disability can live with the security they need.” That way, Americans can continue to not save for retirement, generation after generation.
