If so, it's a lie being propagated by the media. The Bern may have a PR problem.
From the Washington Times, October 27, 2015:

During his quarter-century in Congress, Mr. Sanders has been the chief sponsor of just three bills that were signed into law: two renaming U.S. Postal Service offices in his home state of Vermont and one that increased the annual cost-of-living raise for veterans’ benefits, which he secured as chairman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee in 2013.

Anyone other than Sanders would have folded their tent long ago in face of the Clinton machine. But Bernie's message continues to resonate, as it should. He is far and away a better candidate for President.
Clinton is the only bonafide baby boomer candidate, not in terms of age but in terms of who the candidate's policies support. Sanders is catering to the younger generations and the future. Cruz is another younger candidate who is looking to the future. Sanders and Cruz just have different ideologies and exist at opposite ends of the ideological spectrum. Trump is the unknown and has flipped positions several times over his life.

Now there is a currently influential segment of Corporate America that will go into severe decline when the baby boomers die off or otherwise lose socio-cultural influence and political power. That segment of Corporate America is the media: the remaining newspapers, the MPAA, the RIAA, the MSM and the cable companies. These corporate entities are desperately clinging to baby boomer dominance in society. Many of the Gen-Xers and Millenials are cutting cable TV packages, don't purchase newspaper subscriptions and garner their information and entertainment from internet sources. Once the baby boomers are ousted from their socio-political position of dominance, these corporate monsters: NBC/Comcast, ABC/Disney, Viacom etc., will be thrown in a tailspin. Clinton as President is their last hope for continuing the status quo until the boomers are predominantly dead and gone. Corporate media is deathly afraid of the Millenials because they can't control how they behave or where they go for information. The boomers have always been way more compliant; Woodstock and the hippy behavior of the 1960's can't even compare to how fickle the Millenials are in their day to day usage of media and information. The corporate monsters positively hate that fickleness, they can't control it or even understand it, most likely because the corporate executives are clueless boomers hanging on to a dying business model.

A vote for Clinton is a vote against the continued evolution of our society. Whether you favor Sanders or Cruz, please vote for someone who wants to help those of us who came after the baby boomers.
