That'S okay: it needs to be stood up, swing states like pennsylvania, wisconsin, michigan and ohio. They say serve your time and then you can vote it's common sense. That'S what it's! In other words it's astate's issue. Bernie sanders is saying the federal government should step in and override what the states have already settled a long time ago.
