The long-held Republican nightmare that a champion of working-class people and the common good—one who has dedicated his political career to curbing poverty and injustice while denouncing corporate greed, endless war, and the cruelty of a for-profit health system that leaves millions upon millions uninsured or without affordable access to care—would assume the powerful position of chairing the Senate Budget Committee is about to become reality.

"Time to face the harsh reality, socialist Bernie Sanders will become the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee. He has vowed to use his position to enact his progressive agenda on healthcare, climate, infrastructure spending, and cutting defense spending," Nikki Haley tweeted Saturday.

Nikki setting herself up for a run in 2024. Bernie isn't going to get everything he's looking for. Right now, I would be happy with conference committees discussing taxes, healthcare, infrastructure, and climate change.
Before I do anything with defense, I want..to..see..that..fucking..AUDIT I've been promised for a decade. :)

“I’m going to use reconciliation in as aggressive a way as I possibly can to address the terrible health and economic crises facing working people today,” Sanders told the news outlet. "

This statement makes me very happy. I want to see Democrats finally use budget reconciliation as agressively as the rightards do.

With the Republican tax scam of 2018 being the first thing on the chopping block.

We'll discuss more austerity measures for the rich and corporations later on.
