Sanders is a progressive who gets things done; his record of legislative. Despite being independent from both parties, he got more done in his first eight years in the Senate than Hillary Clinton did in her eight years there. Before the people of Vermont elected him to the Senate in 2006, Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibbi dubbed Sanders the “amendment king” of the House of Representatives. Here is a list of every substantive bill and amendment Sanders sponsored from the floor of Congress that became law. Many roll-call amendments he passed with majority approval, like limiting the federal government’s ability to spy on people’s library records, were removed from bills when the House and Senate negotiated over the final legislative text and did not become law.
