Sanders to Host Four Simultaneous Town Meetings Sunday on Income and Wealth Inequality


BURLINGTON, Vt., March 24 – At a time of growing income and wealth inequality in the United States, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday will host free screenings of the Robert Reich documentary “Inequality for All.”

Sanders has held hundreds of town meetings across Vermont. This Sunday’s events will mark the first time he has held four town meetings simultaneously.

The documentary, featuring former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich, will be shown in Middlebury, Brattleboro, St. Johnsbury and Bennington. Afterward, the audiences will come together via video conference for a discussion led by Sanders from Middlebury Union High School.

“Income and wealth inequality is the great moral, economic and political issue of our time,” Sanders said. “It needs to be addressed by Congress, and it needs to be vigorously discussed by the American people.”

Taxes Pleez!!!

If Bernie is that concerned about our economic welfare, do you think he would mind if we were to keep some of our own hard earned money?
