And the economic power of corporate America? We had the business round table coming to Washington a couple of months ago, and they're saying, "We Corporate Leaders of America believe that you should make massive cuts in Social Security and in Medicare." There is a war going on against the working families of America. That's very clear. That is the issue. There are a hundred different issues out there, but that is the issue that I am going to be focusing on, and I think we all have got to pay a lot of attention to. All right?
Rob Kall: I think my readers think that the corporations have taken over most of Congress except for you and a handful of other people. What can our listeners -
Bernie Sanders: The answer is, we know what the -- this gets back to the letter I just wrote. I mean, clearly the answer is overturning Citizen's United and moving to public funding of elections. Also, election reform which would make it easier for people to vote: all day voting, make it easier for people to vote by postcard, encourage people to participate in the political process, as opposed to the way many Republican Governors are doing, which is now making it harder for people to vote. We've got to do those two things, but those things will not happen unless we have a strong, grass-roots, Progressive movement which is electing people at the local, State, and national level into office to fight for a Progressive agenda.
Rob Kall: And where can people go to support this new, Progressive campaign?
Bernie Sanders: The website is www.bernie.org . What we have just done is we have a Progressive PAC. It's called "The Progressive Voters of America," and what we're going to do with this money that we're raising is we are going to help Progressive candidates at every level of government try to get elected. Sometimes you have great candidates, who a few thousand dollars can make the world of difference, and we're going to try to get it to them; not just candidates of Senate, or even the House, but the State Legislatures, and local government.
So I think that we have got to do everything that we can to formulate a strong Progressive agenda that is protecting Social Security, real tax reform, dealing with Global Warming, and moving toward a single-payer national health care system, dealing with this horrendous student loan situation so that we can make college affordable for everybody.
There's a long list of things we've got to do, but we ain't going to do 'em unless there are millions and millions of people at the grass-roots saying, "I'm involved, I'm going to fight, I'm going to elect good people, I'm going to hold them accountable." That's what we're trying to do, so if anyone wants to help, then go to our website, which is Bernie.org , and we'd love to have 'em on board.
Rob Kall: Awesome. I'm solidly behind you. One last question: can you make any comment about Opednews?
