Senator Sanders on US oligarchy

I receive an email today from the Senator detailing the regressive agenda, an agenda founded by the Kochs and other billionaires. One can see the entire letter here. David Koch ran as a VP candidate in 1980 on the following agenda. Back then it garnered only 1% of the vote but today, through massive buying of elected officials, it has become the main GOP agenda.

The abolition of the minimum wage; the abolition of Medicare and Medicaid; the abolition of social security; the abolition of personal and corporate income tax.

Their goal?

"They want to repeal every major piece of legislation that has been signed into law over the past 80 years that has protected the middle class, the elderly, the children, the sick and the most vulnerable in this country. Every piece of legislation! The truth is that the agenda of the Koch brothers is to move this country from a democratic society with a strong middle class to an oligarchic form of society in which the economic and political life of the nation are controlled by a handful of billionaire families."

Is that your goal for America?
