NATIONAL (VFB) – Military members are officially “Feeling the Bern.” According to recently released FEC filings, some of Bernie Sanders’ top contributors are employed by the United States Army, Navy (including the Marine Corps), and Air Force.
In stark contrast, military members apparently do not support Bernie’s opponent, former first lady Hillary Clinton. Not surprisingly, Clinton’s top contributors include the usual suspects—big money players, including bankers that paid her millions to give speeches, some who would stand to profit handsomely from perpetual warfare.
The continued outpouring of Wall Street support for Hillary does little to convince voters that she’ll actually get tough with the financial institutions who caused our economic recession. Nor does it do much to reassure the American people that she doesn’t have anything to hide in her paid Wall Street speech transcripts.
I think if you're gonna get paid $225k for a speech it must be a good speech—Shakespearian. I can't wait to read it.https://t.co/N86ByFUUZD

So while Hillary Clinton struggles to keep her Wall Street relationships cozy yet invisible to voters, military members and Veterans everywhere are lining up to support the only Commander-in-Chief that they trust to keep us out of unnecessary wars, and to properly care for Veterans when we return home: BERNIE SANDERS.
