Sanders: Red States, Blue States Are Beginning to Fight the GOP Agenda

Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) movement underway in both conservative and liberal states all over the country working against the Republican Party’s agenda.

Sanders said, “What I think has happened now in Kansas, it is true that the Democratic candidate lost. It is true that the Democratic party should have put more resources into that election. But it is also true that he ran 20 points better than the Democratic candidate for president did in Kansas. So what you’re seeing in Kansas, what you’re seeing in Georgia, I believe you’re going to see it in Montana. I believe you’re going to see it all over this country is the many so-called red states working people are going to wake up and say wait a second Republicans want to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and education and they want to give hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the top 1 percent.”

“That’s not what we elected Trump to do,” he continued. “Climate change is real. It’s not a hoax. We got to move to sustainable energy. I think all over this country in red states and in blue states, people are beginning to stand up, they’re beginning to fight back, they’re demanding a government, which does not just represent the billionaires but represents the working class of this country.”
