Bernie Sanders’ Top 10 earners are all men, and he’s the only one (of the 2016 remaining candidates in mid-March) to have that gender “balance”.

When Bernie Sanders voted to strip funding for gun research - The Boston Globe
In 1993, a groundbreaking study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that gun ownership was a risk factor for homicides in the home. The research, by epidemiologist Arthur Kellermann, provided evidence that gun violence is indeed a serious public health issue. The study made history in another way: it enraged the National Rifle Association, which launched a campaign to punish the agency that funded the study, the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention. Congress caved under NRA lobbying pressure and inserted language in the 1996 Omnibus Consolidated Appropriations Bill that “none of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control.”

Written by former US Representative Jay Dickey, an Arkansas Republican, the so-called Dickey Amendment has had a decided chilling effect on research on gun violence for decades.

Dickey, now safely removed from the toxic environs of a divided Congress, has come to his senses and repudiated his own measure. “Research could have been continued on gun violence without infringing on the rights of gun owners,” he wrote in a recent letter.

Fact checkers confirm Hillary Clinton is more honest than any of her 2016 opponents
“If you add up the numbers from the top three boxes, Clinton comes out at 72% and Sanders comes out at 70%, which are both robust scores. In the bottom two boxes, just 14% of Clinton’s challenged statements have rated out as “False” or “Pants on Fire” while Sanders has fallen into those bottom two boxes 15% of the time.”

FEC hits Bernie Sanders with damning report
How can Sanders wail about campaign financing problems when he's the only candidate that can't seem to follow the law about them?

(Answer: the law's too complicated for him ;))

Please Stop Calling Sanders a Feminist
Bernie Sanders' voting record on feminist issues is as progressive as his record on gun control: mixed bag, very much troublesome.

Good thing about Sanders is that he is making other democrats move towards his ideologies so that they get his stamp of approval and get access to his email list of donors.

If you're poor in another country, this is the scariest thing Bernie Sanders has said - Vox
These countries tend to be extremely open to free trade. But they also have expansive welfare states that take money from globalization's winners and use it to compensate the workers who lose out. Everyone in these countries benefits from cheaper goods, the domestic lower middle class doesn't suffer, and the global poor benefit from selling their goods to rich consumers.

Propane Jane on Twitter: "Interesting how he's concerned abt Dems losing White voters & how to remedy it, but can't speak directly to the concerns of voters of color."
ON POINT twitter thread by @dockrocktext26 about how Bernie Sanders is concerned about Dems losing white voters, writes about how to remedy, but can't speak directly to the concerns of voters of color.

"He correctly posits [most white voters] abandon Dems because they don't feel represented if/when civil rights come 1st."

"Maybe then he'll realize that the inability of Dems to appeal to certain White voters b/c of civil rights is actually a feature, not a bug."
