Sanders: You Can’t Take Money From Wall Street and ‘Tell Working Families That You’re On Their Side’

During an interview on Monday’s “PBS NewsHour,” Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) argued that a party can’t take money from Wall Street, “and then tell working families that you’re on their side. People see through that. So, I think the Democratic Party has got to make a fundamental choice.”

Sanders said, “[Y]ou cannot be a party, which takes money from Wall Street, which is not strong on the pharmaceutical industry, which is ripping us off every day, which is not strong on healthcare, in taking on the insurance companies, which has not shown a desire to stand up and fight the economic establishment, and then tell working families that you’re on their side. People see through that. So, I think the Democratic Party has got to make a fundamental choice. It goes back to the old Woody Guthrie song. Which side are you on? And I believe the Democratic Party has got to be firmly on the side of working families, taking on the big money interests, who today, to a very significant degree, control our economic and political life.”
