Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is gaining steam against the current frontrunner, Hillary Clinton. Clinton is an Establishment Democrat, business as usual. Sanders is the opposite of business as usual, and here are six good reasons why.
“I believe that, when you have so few banks with so much power, you have to not only reestablish Glass-Steagall, but you have got to break them up. That is not Hillary Clinton’s position.”
“I believe that our trade policies, NAFTA, CAFTA, PNTR with China, have been a disaster. I am helping to lead the effort against the Trans-Pacific Partnership. That is not Hillary Clinton’s position.”
“We have to be aggressive in transforming our energy system away from fossil fuel, and defeat the Keystone pipeline. That is not Hillary Clinton’s position.”
“I believe that, as opposed to my Republican colleagues who want to cut Social Security, I believe we should expand Social Security by lifting the cap on taxable income. That’s not Hillary Clinton’s position.”
“I believe that we have got to raise the minimum wage over a period of several years to $15 an hour – not Hillary Clinton’s position.”
“I voted against the war in Iraq. Hillary Clinton voted for it.”
