Bernie Sanders Attacks Hillary Clinton Over Regulating Wall Street

Source: New York Times

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont in a fiery speech on Tuesday laid out his plan to break up “too big to fail” commercial banks and pointedly attacked Hillary Clinton for taking speaking fees from the financial industry and, in his view, not going far enough in her plan to regulate Wall Street.

The criticism of Mrs. Clinton was some of Mr. Sanders’s strongest to date, and came after he had frequently refrained from such direct attacks.

“My opponent says that as a senator, she told bankers to ‘cut it out’ and end their destructive behavior,” Mr. Sanders said of Mrs. Clinton. “But, in my view, establishment politicians are the ones who need to cut it out. The reality is that Congress doesn’t regulate Wall Street. Wall Street and their lobbyists regulate Congress. We must change that reality, and as president, I will.”


Mr. Sanders said that Mrs. Clinton was “wrong” to oppose his plan to reinstitute the Glass-Steagall Act, which would legally separate commercial banking, investment banking and insurances services. And the senator implicitly criticized Mrs. Clinton for being a patron of bankers when he pointed to their huge campaign donations and noted that they “provide very generous speaking fees to those who go before them.”

1. Everybody?????

"“I have a broader, more comprehensive set of policies about everything, including taking on Wall Street,” Mrs. Clinton said. “Everybody who has looked at my proposals say they are tougher and more comprehensive.”"
Everybody except Robert Reich, and a few others, I am guessing.
We can now confidently add "Confirmed Liar" to Hillary's resume'.

2. And once again...

...an attack is simply stating facts.

4. Now that I see it written down, he actually told Hillary to cut it out.

A zinger for sure.

6. I've heard good qualities of Iowa voters

Let us hope they are smart enough to reject the corporate f*** everyone else mentality. I was just looking at another

post here that Hillary claims (paraphrasing) "everybody that has looked at (my) plan thinks it is a good plan." I really

wish there is someone with some intelligence that would ask her who "everybody" is. They also posted it probably

wasn't Robert Reich. That very well could be true.

Please Iowa, don't let this corporate crap continue for another 8 years.

7. Looks like we've come to the point where pointing out another's well-known views are "hating" or

 

"attacking". If someone actually looks at a past record and notes it...it's an attack. And that's on both sides. Everyone wants to tout their political wonders, while erring on the side of forgetfulness regarding the not so wonderful policies.

Unless they categorically change them, then what's the problem. If they have been or are in flux...well, time to point it out...however painful that may be.

Lord knows we've seen a lot of the "pointing out" on both fronts.

So we, the DUers or people, have to sort out our own political salvation.
