Bernie Sanders: People Didn't Die To Create A Democratic System Of War Between Billionaires

Sen. Bernie Sanders says our political system is vulgar for creating Super PACS that can control politics over its citizens.

Senator Bernie Sanders, who announced that he's running as a Democrat for president, joined Wolf Blitzer on CNN and reiterated his hatred for all things Citizens United. Wolf asked him if he would take money from a billionaire looking to support him and he vehemently said no. He then made a statement that we are see playing out right in front of us with Republican billionaires picking their politicians (Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio) to run for the presidency. It's been very off putting and disgusting to see these wealthy people pervert the democratic process.

Wolf: If there's a billionaire out there who wants to give you a ton of money, is that OK?

Bernie: I doubt that there is.

I' m not going to do a Super PAC, I'm not supportive of Super Pac

Frankly it is vulgar to me that we're having a war of billionaires. People did not fight and die to create a democratic system where it's a war between billionaires.

Americans did not create the start a revolution and write the Constitution so that a few billionaires could fight each other to determine the fate of America.

Amen, Bernie.
