Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) initiated the request with the GAO that led to the newly released report on voter ID laws. The report found that voter ID laws have nothing to do with voter fraud and everything to do with lowering election turnout. According to a statement from the office of Sen. Sanders, The Government Accountability Office report also found scant evidence of voter fraud that the new laws that ostensibly are designed to discourage. The report was requested by Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Bill Nelson (D-Fla.). The senators asked the research arm of Congress to investigate what they called an “alarming number” of new state laws that make it “significantly harder” for millions of voters to cast ballots. The report calculated the direct cost to would-be voters in the 17 states where voters must present a drivers’ license or other state identification at polling places. The price for drivers’ licenses ranges f ...
Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): Student Loans: The interest rate on what’s typically the most affordable student loan is set to rise on July1 from 3.9 percent to 4.7 percent. Sen. Bernie Sanders underscored the problem of rising college costs at a news conference last month. He introduced Vermonters carrying student loans of as much as $300,000, the Burlington Free Press said in a Sunday editorial. Net Neutrality: A Federal Communications Commission proposal to let broadband providers sell high-speed lanes on the Internet to companies like Netflix was opposed in a Burlington Free Press column by a writer who urged readers to contact Sens.

Just returned from a public meeting in Berkeley on NSA surveillance featuring Daniel Ellsberg and the great Shahid Buttar from BORDC. The church was packed and people were really engaged in learning about how to respond to government surveillance and technological intrusions on our privacy. Can't say I agree that Edward Snowden has done more for the country than the President or any member of Congress (I really like Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy from Vermont) but I don't think we should treat him like a criminal and threat to the country, not when JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs can emerge from their considerable economic crimes with just an economic slap on the wrist. On a separate note, I must admit I am consistently struck by the level of outrage expressed by Bay area progressives about potentially being subject to the conditions and constraints that African-Americans have had to endure since the founding of the republic. I guess they really believed all that stuff about freedom and democracy. In many w ...
As has been suggested today, "We constantly complain about Congress - justifiably - but it is easy to lose sight of the good people in office, who are struggling to do right by us all. I want to make a list of people in Congress whom we trust and admire. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Tammy Duckworth, Maria Cantwell, Patty Murray, Mark /Tom Udall, Tom Harkin, Al Franken, Kirsten Gillibrand, Sherrod Brown, Ron Wyden, Jeff Merkley, Patrick Leahy, Joe Kennedy, Ed Markey, Keith Ellison, Alan Grayson, Adam Smith, Jim Mcdermott (yeah, he is crazy but his votes are good.) Anybody should be taken off this list or added to it?"
So here it is. My IRS story. About 3 years ago I was audited by the IRS when I lived in Vermont. As you are all aware I am outspoken about my views and will continue to be. I sent 5 or 6 emails to our elected government in Vermont over a few years time, one being Bernie Sanders and also Patrick Leahy and I always tried to use specific points and reasons why I think things are wrong. In other words, no "screw you" or "you commie" that, just simple straight forward talk about our differences. Fast forward to my audit/shake down from our "I'm only here to help" IRS agent. Mind you, I have a CPA do my taxes, the same one I have been using for 10 years or so and one that is a controller for a town where I grew up. In other words, someone more than qualified. The IRS agent asked for some documents about a few properties I owned in South Carolina and wanted to know whether they were rentals or second homes to which I told her "rentals." She set up a phone interview which started with "I'm going to ask you some q ...

"In the long three decades McCain has served in Washington DC, we can't find any time he's referred to any other colleagues, past or present, as "wacko birds." Not Nancy Pelosi. Not Barbara Boxer. Not Al Franken. Not Robert Byrd. Not Sheila Jackson Lee. Not Hank Johnson. Not Patrick Leahy. Not Robert Menendez. Not Bernie Sanders. Not Dennis Kucinich. Not Jim Wright. Not Anthony Weiner. Not Alan Grayson. Not Carol Moseley Braun. Not *** Durbin. Not Chuck Schumer. Not Harry Reid. No. The "wackos" are Rand Paul and Ted Cruz -- the two men who have single-handedly breathed new life into the moribund and wasted GOP brand. Moribund and wasted no thanks to the abysmal political skills (or lack thereof) of McCain and his ilk."
Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): USPS: Sen. Sanders joined 23 other senators in challenging the postmaster general’s authority to end Saturday mail delivery without congressional approval. The senators are asking for a legal justification, in writing, as to what Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe thinks gives him authority to unilaterally stop Saturday service, all-news radio KXNT-FM in Las Vegas reported on Monday. Dairy: Sen. Patrick Leahy addressed the St. Albans Cooperative Creamery annual meeting. The Milk Income Loss Contract, a Leahy authored support program for farmers, expired last year. Leahy was able to get a temporary reauthorization of the program, however, and as a result Vermont farmers received $450,000 in payments. Speaking on behalf of Sen. Bernie Sanders, staffer Jenny Nelson urged farmers who received a check to give Leahy a round of applause, the St. Albans Messenger reported. Climate Change: “Gamely plowing ahead despite an absence of support beyond party lines, ...
Legislation to modernize the U.S. Postal Service, save Saturday mail and repeal a crippling law responsible for 80 percent of the mail system’s funding woes was introduced in the Senate and House on Wednesday by Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Peter DeFazio. “While we all understand that the Postal Service is experiencing financial problems today and that changes need to be made as the Postal Service adjusts to a digital world, these issues can be dealt with in a way which strengthens the Postal Service rather than initiating a series of cuts that could eventually lead to a death spiral,” Sanders said. The Senate bill is cosponsored by Sens. Patrick Leahy, Kirsten Gillibrand, Al Franken, Ron Wyden, Jeff Merkley, Tom Udall and Sherrod Brown. “Congress must work together and pass legislation that will sustain the Postal Service, avert unnecessary closures that hurt communities and save American jobs. Most of the financial issues facing the United States Postal Service are due to short-sighted actions b ...
Social Security: Sen. Bernie Sanders "will once again be leading the fight to protect Social Security from Obama, Democrats and Republicans, all of whom have bought into austerity. It begins now, not after President Obama is likely reelected," Taylor Marsh wrote at The Moderate Voice. Sanders "will be leading the fight against cutting the program's cost-of-living increases," she added. Irene Recovery: More than 13 months after Tropical Storm Irene swept through Vermont, some towns still are struggling with the federal government's disaster-aid program. Newfane officials received contradictory deadlines from FEMA as they seek approval of alternative uses for up to $455,220 in federal bridge replacement money. Rep. Peter Welch told the Brattleboro Reformer that he and Sens. Patrick Leahy and Sanders, have been "doing all we can to intervene" in such situations. UVM: Sen. Sanders spoke at Friday's installation of Thomas Sullivan as president of the University of Vermont. Mentioning student debt and the role ...
