Income and Wealth Inequality

"There is something profoundly wrong when one family owns more wealth than the bottom 130 million Americans."- Bernie Sanders

During his presidency Sanders plans to create a estate tax on the top 0.3 percent of Americans who inherit more than $3.5 million. He will also enact a tax on Wall Street speculators who caused millions of Americans to lose their jobs, homes, and life savings. He also plans to raise the pay of minimum wage to $15.00 an hour because he believes that no one who works 40 hours a week should be living in poverty. And these are only a few of his ideas to progress the American Dream.

A Fair and Humane Immigration Policy

"We are a nation of immigrants. I am the son of an immigrant myself. Their story, my story, our story is a story of America: hard-working families coming to the United States to create a brighter future for their children. The story of immigrants is the story of America, a story rooted in family and fueled by hope. It continues today in families all cross the United States."

Sanders plans to allow immigrants to purchase health coverage under the Affordable Care Act, employ humanitarian parole to ensure the return of unjustly deported immigrants and unify broken families, all while making sure our border remains secure and protects local communities.

War Should be the Last Option

"It is my firm belief that the test of a great nation, with the most powerful military on earth, is not how many wars we can engage in, but how we can use our strength and our capabilities to resolve international conflicts in a peaceful way."

Sanders plans for an agreement that calls for cutting off Iran's pathways to the fissile materials needed for a nuclear weapon by condensing its stockpile of uranium by 98%, and diminishing the level of enrichment or uranium to below the level required for weaponized uranium. Not only this but the agreement also demands Iran to limit the number of installed centrifuges by 2/3, disassemble the country's heavy-water nuclear reactor so that it's inhibited from producing any weapons-grade plutonium, and execute monitoring, inspection, and verification by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

And these are only a few of his policies.
