For the second time, that isn't a quote saying that Bernie thinks that rich people don't have rights.
This is a red herring. I never made any attempt to say that unions don't bribe politicians, it also doesn't back up your assertion that Bernie doesn't think that rich people have rights.
Yea see, I knew you couldn't back up your assertions (mostly because you are wrong and being hyperbolic).
Only unions, and 'people' get to buy politicians.
That is also the idear behind going after those and I quote from Sanders own website. 'Billionaire oligarchs'.
Uh the only 'oligarchs' there are in this country are those 535 congressman sitting on capitol Shill.
n 2010, a bad situation turned worse. In a 5-4 decision in the Citizens United case, the Supreme Court opened the floodgates for corporations and the wealthy to spend unlimited and undisclosed money to buy our elected officials.
The principles articulated by the Supreme Court in the case have also been extended to for-profit corporations, labor unions and other associations.
Sanders has CU to thank for those donations.
And THAT's A FACT.
Sen. Bernie Sanders hates the Supreme Court Citizens United ruling and if he becomes president he'll make sure his Supreme Court nominees vote to overturn it, he said Sunday.
“If elected president, I will have a litmus test in terms of my nominee to be a Supreme Court justice and that nominee will say that they are going to overturn this disastrous Supreme Court decision,” the Vermont independent said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
Though he understands why Hillary Clinton will be using a Super PAC to raise funds – she has said she doesn’t like it but she has to compete – he will not use one, he said. The senator, who is now seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, has long warned about the insidious influence of big money in politics.
Since his presidential announcement less than two weeks ago, Sanders said nearly 90,000 people have donated to his campaign, averaging $43 each.
Athough he doesn’t think he’ll outspend Clinton or Republican Jeb Bush, Sanders said he'll be able raise enough money to run a strong campaign.

Lol. You keep thinking you answered my request. I know deep down we both know you didn't. You haven't posted any quotes from Bernie saying that he thinks that rich people don't have rights. Increasing taxes on rich people doesn't mean that he thinks rich people don't have rights. This is why I didn't bother refuting your hyperbole, you aren't looking to listen to anyone with dissenting opinions. The only opinion that matters to you is your poorly formed personal opinion. I REALLY wish you could be more intellectually honest with the way you post, because talking to you feels like I'm banging my head against a wall repeatedly. But hey, we can't all get what we want.
