I keep asking how Bernie can get things done [View all]

I keep hearing how "he can work across the isle like he has done for years". Yet that might not really be the case.

According to the 2015 Bipartisan Index

Two 2016 presidential hopefuls are also the top two most partisan people in the Senate, according to new data.

The Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy published their 2015 Bipartisan Index on Monday, which measures how often each member of Congress co-sponsored a bill introduced by someone from their opposing party or attracted co-sponsors for their own bills from the opposite party. By this standard, in 2015, Bernie Sanders ranked as the most partisan person on the Senate side, and Ted Cruz ranked as the second-most partisan. Though Sanders is an Independent in the Senate, he was counted as a Democrat


So tell me again how he can work across the isle, and don't give the the old "well what about Hillary crap, this is about Bernie.
