Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, the only self-identified socialist in Congress, tells it like it is. Congress is set to do exactly what the American people do not want it to do. Instead of focusing on addressing the obscene anomalies of a tax code that has billionaires paying a lower rate than the average Joe, Congress is about to further deflate the economy by cutting spending. How did Obama and the Democrats lose the debate so thoroughly? And, if you, dear reader, are one of those people who sat out the midterm election, shame on you too.
