During an interview on CNN’s New Day, 2016 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said that while he respected fellow candidate Hillary Clinton, voters needed to look at her record when deciding who to cast their ballot for.
When asked what separated him from the former Secretary of State, Sanders said:
“First of all, let me tell you this … I’ve known Hillary Clinton for 25 years and I like her and I respect her. I am running for working families and the middle class and not against Hillary Clinton. But I think people have to look at the record. I have voted against every disastrous trade agreement coming down the pike against, and [am] helping to lead the effort against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which will mean the outsourcing of good-paying jobs to low-wage countries.People have got to look at Secretary Clinton’s record.”
Sanders then went on to describe legislation he is currently working on, including a breakup of the largest financial institutions on Wall Street, making public college tuition free, requiring the the biggest corporations to stop avoiding taxes by stashing money offshore, and establishing a carbon tax to address climate change, which he considers a global crisis.
