Bernie Sanders, U.S. Senator from Vermont, delivered a Keynote address to a packed auditorium Saturday morning at the 2015 PA Progressive Summit. Sanders laid out a progressive agenda for the 2016 election cycle as he considers a run for president.
Sanders has been one of the strongest voices in Congress for working families since he first joined the body as a U.S. Representative in 1990.
Sanders’s talk charted the stark right-wing shift of the Republican Party over the past 30 years, the need to make Congress work for working families instead of the donor class, and the dominance a handful of billionaires such as the Koch brothers have on our political system. If Sanders has not made up his mind to make a 2016 presidential run, you certainly wouldn’t know it from this speech.
