Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

Sen. Bernie Sanders Touts $3.5 Trillion Spending Bill in Conservative and Swing States

HeadlineAug 30, 2021

Senator Bernie Sanders was in Michigan, Iowa and Indiana over the weekend to push Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending bill in town halls and other events with voters. Sanders, chair of the Senate Budget Committee, said he wanted to speak directly to working people about how the bill will impact them and their communities by investing in child care, workers’ rights, free community college, and creating well-paid, union jobs that will help combat the climate crisis.

Sen. Bernie Sanders: “This bill will put hundreds of billions of dollars into transforming transportation in this country, make our homes and buildings more energy efficient, make agriculture greener. And also, on top of all of that, we are going to put many billions of dollars into a Civilian Climate Corps.”
