Vermont‘s independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders launched his campaign for president twice, once in Washington on April 30 and more recently in Burlington, Vermont on May 26, the city where he served as mayor from 1981 to 1989. In a speech to more than 5,000 supporters on the shores of Lake Champlain, Sanders discussed the serious challenges he says are facing the country, and offered an "Agenda for America” calling for “specific proposals to provide bold solutions."
Sanders, who proudly describes himself as a democratic socialist, has been dismissed by many in the corporate media as a longshot candidate for the White House in competition against former first lady, senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. But in recent weeks, Bernie, as he’s affectionately called by supporters, has surprised many political observers with larger than expected rallies drawing overflow crowds to hear his progressive message in Iowa and Minnesota.
In keeping with his campaign pledge to offer bold solutions, Sanders recently introduced two pieces of legislation in the U.S. Senate. One, the Robin Hood Tax, a financial transaction tax similar to those that have been implemented in some 40 nations around the world, would set a 0.5 percent tax on most stock transactions and a lesser tax on bond and derivative trades. The second bill, called The College for All Act, funded by the Robin Hood Tax, would provide for free undergraduate college tuition fees for students attending public colleges and universities, as well as tackling the student debt crisis. Between the Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Jean Ross, a registered nurse and a co-president of the National Nurses United union, a major supporter of the legislation along with a coalition of students, religious and civil rights groups. Here, Ross talks about the Robin Hood tax and the how the revenue generated would help fund vital education and other social programs.
