Bernie Sanders

The Sanders phenomenon is still here

Yes, Bernie Sanders – who talked about free health care and education, provided some balance for those who felt US politics shifting to the right, and made the word “socialism” acceptable again – lost his party’s nomination back in the 2016 election.
But he is still one of America’s most popular political figures. And he is still fighting, recently introducing a bill to ensure health care access for all.
The bill has raised a lot of criticism, but also much hope. Even if it ultimately fades to another version of Obamacare, it will be a springboard for longmuch-needed left-oriented debates within the Democratic party and beyond, on vital issues.
DiEM25 thinks this is the right way forward. We support moves like Sanders’ new bill, as progressive proposals that put people first. The same kinds of proposals that we want to see implemented in Europe, as part of our European New Deal.
