TWO MAVERICKS by Jerry Beller
Bernie Sanders and Pope Francis are two kindred spirits, two mavericks working against the tide. Perhaps no two people in the world today are fighting for the poor, disadvantaged, downcast, and those left out of the human dream of security and prosperity.
BERNIE SANDERS & POPE FRANCIS – Two Mavericks
Bernie is a rare straight shooter in American politics, and Pope Francis is an extraordinary pope with a real passion for the poor. May they win their fight against their wealthy and powerful adversaries who keep getting richer while the poor keep getting poorer.
Personally, I don’t believe in handouts to those who are healthy and capable, but I believe in an equal day’s pay for aa fair day’s work. I believe people who work full time should be able to support their families. Glad to see Bernie Sanders and Pope Francis share this devotion.
Sen. Bernie Sanders welcomed Pope Francis to the United States and asked his colleagues in Congress to act on the pope’s call to care for the most vulnerable in our society.
