A story of Bernie Sanders in action:

This is from Facebook. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=959329920791975&set=gm.1063287967023677&type=3&theater

"Brenda W. I am a Disabled Vermonter. I was having trouble getting through the process of being accepted on the SSDI process, was supposed to have a definitive ruling within 5 months meantime I was on the brink of becoming homeless, my vehicle which Oliver only owed 2 more payments was repossessed prior to getting a ruling. Which I don't believe would have come through had I not called Bernie office. To my Surprise Bernie answered the phone while his Secretary was out of the office. I explained my dire situation to Bernie, he listened intently. Asked whom if anyone was representing me. I told him I had felt confident enough with my record keeping & ability to navigate the mounds of paperwork that I did not hire an attorney. He asked a few pertinent questions & told me he would follow up with the local SSDI office & the person who made the determinations to see why I was being held up so long. The next day the SSDI rep called me asked a couple simple questions & told me he was ready to make a ruling on my case. Later that week, Bernie called me back & told me he had good news for me! My claim had been sitting approved on a desk & once he made the phone inquiry he asked that the process be expedited due to special circumstances. I received my first check that same day, the award letter came 2 weeks later! Talk about being Greatful! This man takes an interest in the little ppl. And he ACTS ON THE ISSUES. GETS RESULTS! And Genuinely Cares."

So there it is. Bernie acts on the issues and gets results because he genuinely cares!
