Why did Bernie Saunders vote for the 2010 War Funding Bill?

I wish Thom would ask Bernie Saunders why he voted for the 2010 War Funding Bill. Democrats Ron Wyden and Russ Feingold voted against. Where is the great "independent" Bernie Saunders? He votes with the establishment Demos on big votes, like healthcare and the war. I think he is a phony progressive, and Thom should ask him some real questions instead of a fanfest.

You're asking good questions and I'd like to know the answers, too. I've had the same thoughts.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
