Jindal: Hillary and Obama Are ‘Socialists’ Too, Sanders Is Just Honest

Louisiana Governor and Republican presidential candidate Bobby Jindal stated that at least Bernie Sanders is “saying what Hillary will not say, but they’re both socialists” and that President Obama is “for socialism as well” on Thursday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.”

Jindal, when asked about Sanders, remarked, “At least he’s honest about it. Look, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and the other Democrats in DC, they’re for socialism. They just — they’re not as honest as Bernie is. Did you honestly believe we would live to see the day when a guy, an honest to goodness socialist is running for president and doing — he got 10,000 people in Wisconsin to come hear him speak, he’s gaining on Hillary in the polls. This shows you how radical the Democratic Party is. Look, the President went to the Catholic Health Association to defend, make a ‘moral case’ for Obamacare. Hugh, he’s making the moral case for government dependence, for socialism. He is, it is immoral to spend money we don’t have. It’s immoral to lie to the American people to pass this bill. It’s immoral to put people in an outdated, inefficient Medicaid program. At least Bernie’s honest about it. I disagree with socialism. I think we’ve got to rescue the American dream from becoming the European nightmare. And Hugh, I worry that Greece and Puerto Rico are our future if we don’t get our act together. There’ll be nobody to bail out America, nobody left to help us. And so now we’ve got to turn away from socialism. Give Bernie the props for at least being honest. At least he’s saying what Hillary will not say, but they’re both socialists. The only difference is Bernie’s being honest about it.”
