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.

Obamacare is not some socialist marxist leftist plot...

Obamacare is not some crazy communist, left-wing, socialist plot. It’s a Republican plot.

Back in 1971, then President Richard Nixon was extremely concerned that he would have to face then Senator Ted Kennedy in the 1972 presidential election. At that time, Senator Kennedy was pushing a proposal for a national single-payer healthcare plan that would extend coverage to all Americans.
