Friday At Bernie's

Senator Bernie Sanders lead an amazing filibuster last Friday. The 69 year old Democratic Socialist from Vermont gave the Senate a good ole' fashioned 9 hour filibuster, explaining why we should not continue Bush's tax breaks for the very wealthy. Unfortunately, the bill was still passed. However, the White House did notice Bernie's efforts and the collective anger of progressives according to this article. Bernie is my new hero! Here's just one clip from his speech.
