Senator Bernie Sanders Does Web 2.0

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is one of the best advocates for the U.S. middle classes and he's also becoming new technology communication savvy. Bernie is online!

Firstly, he wrote a column on the Huffington Post on the financial crisis.

Here are his very simple main points and he has a tendency to introduce legislation to accompany his words.

  • Cap interest rates to 15%
  • Break up too big to fail institutions
  • Pass the "Audit the Fed" bill

Pretty simple huh? If an institution is too big to fail then maybe it's too big to exist? Stop consumer usary by plain making loan shark interest rates illegal. If we want to know what the Federal Reserve has done with $2 trillion, let's audit them.
