It seems like Senator Bernie Sanders (Independent from Vermont) is quickly becoming a favorite of all my friends, as he called out virtually everything that is wrong with our country’s budget allocation in just over thirteen minutes. The statistic above is from 2007.
Coincidentally, I’ve been listening to The Evens a lot lately. Their song “Dinner with the President” reminds me of Sanders’ remarks quite a lot.
