ST.JOHNSBURY - Senator Bernie Sanders was in St. Johnsbury earlier this month as part of his five-town Town Meeting tour Labor Day Weekend.

 

Sanders' goal with these town meetings was to explain and gain support for the reconciliation bill, which will change the way the richest Americans are taxed, and the bipartisan plan, which will create jobs and update the United States' infrastructure.

"These are very, very difficult times for our country," Sanders said. "In fact, I think it's fair to say that the year we have just gone through in many ways has been the most difficult year in our lives."

Senator Sanders also answered questions from the over 300 people who attended.
