Sanders on difference with Warren: she's a capitalist 'I'm not'

The Hill Finance 1 day ago

Sen. (I-Vt.) characterized the differences between himself and Sen. (D-Mass.) in a new interview as one of philosophy, pointing to Warren's past comments in support of capitalism as a key issue upon which they disagreed.

In an interview airing Sunday with ABC's Jon Karl, Sanders struck a stronger tone in distancing himself from Warren's views on economic policy than he has in previous months, and again asserted that he was the strongest candidate to take on entrenched, powerful corporations and special interest groups in Washington.

"There are differences between Elizabeth and myself," Sanders said, referring to Warren. "Elizabeth, I think, as you know, has said that she is a capitalist through her bones. I’m not.”

"I am, I believe, the only candidate who's going to say to the ruling class of this country, 'Enough. Enough with your greed, and with your corruption. We need real change in this country,' " Sanders added.

Sanders stepped back from the campaign trail last week after undergoing surgery to insert two stents in his heart after he reported feeling chest pains. The Vermont senator is scheduled to return to the campaign trail within the next week, and plans to attend Tuesday's Democratic primary debate in Ohio.

Hailing from the progressive wing of the party, Sanders and Warren have largely avoided attacking each other or their respective policies, with Warren frequently telling reporters that she is "with Bernie" on the issue of Medicare-for-all.
