Bernie Sanders Interview on Inequality in America



Published on Mar 16, 2018
Ana Kasparian interviews Senator Bernie Sanders on inequality in America and his upcoming national town hall. Watch LIVE Inequality in America: A National Town Hall at 7pm eastern Monday March 19th, more info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/19717...

We live in the richest country in the history of the world, but that reality means little because much of that wealth is controlled by a tiny handful of individuals while more than 40 million Americans live in poverty. The issue of wealth and income inequality is the great moral issue of our time, it is the great economic issue of our time, and it is the great political issue of our time.

On March 19th, Sen. Bernie Sanders, in partnership with The Guardian, NowThis, The Young Turks and Act.tv, will present a live town hall event on the rise of the oligarchy and the collapse of the American middle class. Sanders will speak with director Michael Moore, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, economist Darrick Hamilton and other guests about the 40-year decline of the middle class and possible solutions to the growing crisis of income and wealth inequality in America.

The event will be live streamed across the social media platforms of Sen. Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Michael Moore, The Guardian, NowThis, The Young Turks, Act.tv and Buzzfeed.

2. Whatever Bernie says means nothing.

He’s not a Democrat, you know, so “real” Democrats don’t support him.


Nobody talks about economic inequality like Bernie does. I wonder if any of the Bernie bashers will react to this; they’re quick to criticize him but loathe to praise him.

3. What I don't understand with the Bernie haters...

is why, if the issues he tries to advance, along with Warren and other more progressive Democrats, are so unicorn and rainbows, so unattainable, then why not simply ignore what he does? The old "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all". If he is that irrelevant, then why the concern about him?
But they just cannot resist polluting almost every thread that highlights what Sanders is doing, his tireless speaking out, organizing rallies against Trump, to diminish it, denigrate it, and trash him as a person. I hope this thread will be different but I'm not holding out any hope. Waiting for the usual suspects to all pile in any moment.

4. Or they will completely ignore a thread that reflects positively on Bernie.

One thing they won’t do is admit he has done something good or spoken well on an issue. They keep saying how he’s trying to divide the Democratic Party when, in reality, the Bernie haters are doing far more to divide the party.
