Writing in Huffington Post, Senator Bernie Sanders asks some important questions about the “soul of America.” There is nothing bipartisan about Senator Sanders. He comes from the left and makes no attempt to hide his views. At the same time, the problems he discusses, especially the growing problem of inequality, should concern every America. Sanders asks us to consider how corporations earning big profits and paying less than ever before into the tax base. He also reminds us that American-based companies receive tax breaks for taking jobs out of the U.S. These are real problems, and Sanders is a patriot for putting them forward as national priorities. I urge you to read his essay.
