@MarkPocan, here in Kenosha, WI: “Randy Bryce knows how important it is to protect your Medicare and Social Security. You’ve paid into it your entire life.” Mitch McConnell made this a central issue in the midterms. His party will pay for it, and his plans will fail.
Pocan laying out the case against Bryan Steil. “There are already 211 or 212 lawyers in Congress. Do you think sending a 213th—a corporate lawyer, who worked for outsourcers—is going to shake things up in Washington?”
“My opponent doesn’t know what it’s like to suffer. What it’s like to scramble to get by. My opponent keeps putting profits over people.” – @IronStache, cancer survivor, vet, ironworker, and the guy who’ll shake the country by replacing Paul Ryan & defeating his protege
“Homeless veteran. Those are two words that should never go together.” – @IronStache
“I told Randy that if he threatened the special interests, they would attack him in the most personal ways. They have. They threw millions of dollars of ugly 30-second ads against @IronStache. But based on the poll I saw today, it ain’t working. He’s gonna win!” – @BernieSanders
Bernie meticulously dissecting the core lies of Trump’s phony populism—that he vowed to protect Medicaid. That he said he’d take on drug prices. That he’s face down the establishment. All lies. “Although to be honest, I don’t think he knows the difference between lies and truth.”
Big applause re @BernieSanders on criminal justice reform. “We lock up more than two million people, more than any other country on earth. But people are understanding that maybe, just maybe, we should be investing in jobs and education instead of jails and incarceration.”
Local MoveOn members joined @BernieSanders outside the UAW Local 72 union hall today after killer rally with @IronStache. Everyone’s fired up to power the blue wave!
My colleague @OReggieGlobal—certified yoga instructor as well as political force of nature—had the idea for this photo. Title: #FlipTheHouse
