Senator Bernie Sanders: We Need Public Funding of Elections
There are a total of 2 federally elected officials (out of 536) on the Front Line against Crony Capitalism: Senator Bernie Sanders and Congressman Ron Paul. If you are stuck seeing the world in the left-right spectrum that dominates mainstream debate in this country, this will seem bizarre. But the spectrum we should be looking at first and foremost is between honest and compromised. Ron Paul and Bernie Sanders may have different ideas about the ideal way to handle many economic issues, but they are both honest about the corrupt political economy that is undermining our democracy. In this clip, Bernie Sanders discusses how money dictates what is legislated and who gets elected.
