| I don't trust Senator Michael Bennet to negotiate in good faith (even with us, his own base!) as DC is in a fund-slashing feeding frenzy over this contrived "fiscal cliff".
Bennet infamously lied about the Public Option while working on the Affordable Care Act.
Bennet acted like he wasn't involved in the process when he practically lied to Martha Raddatz about the current issue:
RADDATZ: "I spoke to Sen. Michael Bennett of Colorado earlier this week at the Atlantic Ideas Festival and he said this really comes down to Speaker Boehner and President Obama."
The senator has complained about the broken process in DC. He's vowed to change it. Bennet said the current fight comes down to Obama and Boehner. In that case, he should halt these negotiations behind closed doors. The details should be in the open. The exact funding Bennet is negotiating away to Lamar Alexander and senate Republicans should be specified to reporters at the Post and elsewhere.
Or, maybe it would just be best if Senator Michael Bennet quit lying to his constituents about his actions in Washington, DC.
And just in case Senator Bennet is tyring to ignore the recent election, where Barack Obama is winning by 3.5 Million votes, Bernie Sanders reminds us the People have spoken:
As I'm sure you are aware, there is currently a major effort being waged by Wall Street CEOs, Republicans and some Democrats to do deficit reduction on the backs of the middle class and working families.
This could mean, among other things, significant cuts to vital programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
President Obama and the Democrats won a decisive victory on Election Day.
The people have spoken and the Democratic Leadership must make it very clear that they intend to stand with the middle class and working families of our country, and not the Big Money interests.
This means that in the coming weeks and months the Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done in a way that is fair -- and not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
