I guess maybe I'm a left wing nut job too, but I saw this clip : http://www.ijreview.com/2015/09/424685-whoops-bernie-sanders-tries-explain-pay-spending-whacks-cup/ ... and he makes sense to me. I didn't see the whole interview - I wish I did. Also- we already had the wage equality argument. It's semantics. No one thinks that everyone should make the same wage (no one here anyway)- it's just that some people use the term 'wage equality' to mean fair and livable wages for all, or a decrease in wage INequality. I know. It doesn't make sense to me either but it is what it is.
