Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) headlined the Repeal Trump Tax Tour at the Lansing Center hosted by the liberal group Not One Penny on Feb. 25. This is a 100-day tour, which kicked off last month. According to Not One Penny, the goal of the tour is to “hold Republicans accountable for raising taxes on 92 million middle-class families to give massive tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations.”
Sanders was accompanied by several other local activists, including Mari Copeny, known as Little Miss Flint, Melissa Mackney of the group MomsRising, Andrea Pietrowsky and her three-year-old daughter of Little Lobbyists and Michigan State University student Omar Karim. “The reason we always have ordinary people come forward to talk about what’s going on in their lives is that as a nation, we don’t do that enough,” Sanders said.
