Watch: Bernie Sanders Schools Republicans On 'REAL' Family Values

Sponsored Links

In this incredible video, Bernie Sanders firmly wrests away the mantle of “family values” away from a hypocritical Republican Party and lays out his plans for a real family values agenda, one that takes care of mothers and children, that cares for their well-being and happiness, one that attacks Republican hypercapitalism for its exploitation of low-wage workers and the damage that big corporations do to families across the country:

When my Republican colleagues talk about “family values,” what they usually mean is opposition to a woman’s right to choose, opposition to contraception, opposition to gay rights. Let me today give a somewhat different perspective on family values – on real family values.

When a mother has a baby and is unable to spend time with that child during the first weeks and months of that baby’s life, and is forced back to work because of a lack of money, that is not a family value. That is an attack on everything that a family is supposed to stand for. When a wife is diagnosed with cancer and a husband cannot get time off of work to take care of her, that is not a family value. That is an attack on everything that a family is supposed to stand for. When a mother is forced to send her sick child to school because she cannot afford to stay home with her that is not a family value. That is an attack on everything that a family is supposed to stand for. When a husband, wife, and kids, during the course of an entire year, are unable to spend any time together on vacation – that is not a family value. That is an attack on everything that a family is supposed to stand for.

It’s an astonishing speech that shows once again that Bernie Sanders is a man of the people, and one that will fight relentlessly for the people, one that will fight harder than the Republicans fight to destroy the middle class and our public institutions.
