In the Fiscal Debate, an Unvarnished Voice for Shielding Benefits

There are 4 comments on the www.nytimes.com story from Dec 13, 2012, titled In the Fiscal Debate, an Unvarnished Voice for Shielding Benefits. In it, www.nytimes.com reports that:

When President Obama cut a deal with Congressional Republicans in December 2010 to extend tax cuts for the wealthy, Senator Bernard Sanders, the brusque Vermont independent who calls himself a socialist, decided it was time for a protest.

He had a cup of coffee and a bowl of oatmeal in a Senate cafeteria, marched into the chamber and began talking. He talked for so long — railing for 8 hours 37 minutes about economic justice, the decline of the middle class and “reckless, uncontrollable” corporate greed — that his legs cramped. So many people watched online that the Senate video server crashed.
