Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a candidate for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, said, “We need a political revolution in this country,” instead of what he said was another “battle between billionaires,” like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson.
The self-described socialist Sanders said America should be more like Denmark Norway and Sweden with sweeping government programs that redistribute wealth.
Sanders continued, “It’s not just the Clinton foundation, here are my concerns and it should be the concern of every American in a sense, what my campaign is about, can somebody who is not a billionaire who stands for working families actually win an election in which billionaire supporting hundreds of billions of dollars into the election? It’s not just Hillary, it is the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson.”
He added, “I get very frightened about the future of American democracy when this becomes a battle of billionaires. I believe in one person one vote. I believe we need a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens Untied.”
