Sanders touts plan to make ‘ultra-rich pay their fair share’

Source: The Hill



Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is launching an ad campaign with renewed focus on his economic policies.

Television ads set to run in early-voting states come amid the campaign’s plan to destigmatize the Democratic presidential candidate’s status as a democratic socialist.

“If you’re doing everything right but find it harder and harder to get by, you’re not alone,” Sanders says in an ad titled “Works for Us All” that will air in Iowa and New Hampshire.

“While our people work longer hours for lower wages, almost all new income goes to the top one percent,” he continues. “My plan: Make Wall Street banks and the ultra-rich pay their fair share of taxes.” ... In another spot titled “A Rigged Economy,” Sanders says America’s finances are “held in place by corrupt politics where Wall Street banks and billionaires buy elections.”

2. Not really LBN, but I can't wait to see how this is spun into a "bad thing".

 

It's going to take some serious creativity :

3. Not LBN? Is LBN limited to breaking news about the campaigns of Trump, Clinton, Cruz, Graham, etc.?
