I usually don't play the veteran card, but I'm gonna play it here. #MyBernieStory has to do with why I joined the USAF. I want to live in a country where the oath I took means something, that rights for all are guaranteed,
that we are self governing, and that our elected officials aren't bought by lobbyists or corporations. I want our tax dollars to fund programs that benefit the masses, not fund tax cuts for the billionaires.
As a disabled veteran with a 100% rating, I am guaranteed not single payer but universal health care and a free education. I believe that if the government can manage that for me, it can manage it for all.
My military career has allowed me to visit or live in countries where healthcare and education are provided to anyone, and who have solid infrastructures and happy, healthy residents. I think we should have that too.
I'm fairly set. Electing Bernie will do little to change my life. But like Bernie says, #NotMeUs and I think everyone deserves to have their tax dollars spent on them to collectively improve our lives and #CloseTheGap on wages, racial disparities, and
close the biggest wealth gap we've experienced since the Great Depression. That's my Bernie Story. Oh, and #BernieBeatsTrump.
