Bernie Sanders on Deficit Reduction

In the coming days and weeks, decisions will be made about our national budget that will impact the lives of virtually every American in this country for decades to come.

At a time when the richest people and the largest corporations in our country are doing phenomenally well, and, in many cases, have never had it so good, while the middle class is disappearing and poverty is increasing, it is absolutely imperative that a deficit reduction package not include the disastrous cuts in programs for working families, the elderly, the sick, the children and the poor that the Republicans in Congress, dominated by the extreme right wing, are demanding.

Senator Bernie Sanders

If you read the rest of his speech, Sanders seems to be of the opinion the President can be persuaded to stand with the middle and working classes in this country on the issue of deficit reduction.  Does that seem a realistic expectation to you?
