This 4 February 2016 video from the USA says about itself:
Bernie Sanders: Money In Politics Ruins Democracy | Democratic Debate | MSNBC
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have a heated exchange on big money in politics at the MSNBC Democratic Candidates Debate.
From the campaign of United States senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders today:
Just like that, our campaign is under attack from the corporate establishment.
This week, an organization that is the epitome of the political establishment — the Center for American Progress (CAP) —
In spite of its name, a think thank connected to the Hillary Clinton corporate right wing of the Democratic party. It has been criticized for, eg, its links to the Saudi and United Arab Emirates absolute monarchies.
unleashed and promoted an online attack video against Bernie.
And behind the scenes on the day Bernie introduced his Medicare for All bill, they held a conference call with reporters attacking the bill.
That is the Center for American Progress’ real goal. Trying to stop Medicare for All and our progressive agenda.
CAP’s leadership has been pretty upfront about their disdain for Bernie — and for all of us. They see our political revolution as a threat to their privilege and influence.
So today, we have to do something VERY important. We have to send a message that their attacks will only make our campaign stronger. And we have to do it in the language they understand best:
Make a $3 donation to our campaign today as a way of saying you have had ENOUGH of deep-pocketed organizations working to defeat our progressive agenda. Every single donation sends a critical message.
The Center for American Progress is an organization whose massive annual budget is bankrolled by billionaires and corporate executives that profit from finance, pharmaceutical companies, fossil fuels, and sending American jobs overseas.
Last year alone, they took funding from financial giants like Bank of America and Blackstone, whose CEO was chair of Trump‘s business council and is a leading Republican donor.
Before that, they cashed checks from companies like BlueCross Blue Shield, Pfizer, WalMart, and defense contractors like General Dynamics and [British] BAE Systems.
They also took hundreds of thousands of dollars from the fossil fuel pumping United Arab Emirates while the country was bombing innocent civilians in Yemen – a war Bernie has led the fight to end.
The Center for American Progress has deep connections to the economic and political elites who have done so much damage to working families in every zip code. And what we must do today is send a message that we are prepared to fight back against those who are working day and night to defeat our movement.
Contribute $3 today to send an unmistakable message that we will fight back against corporate-funded organizations that try to defeat our progressive agenda.
The establishment is panicked because together we are building a campaign that is on its way to winning the Democratic nomination, beating Trump and transforming America.
If we come together to show that we won’t tolerate their attacks, organizations like Center for American Progress will think twice before attacking our campaign again.
‘President Sanders’ would ban anti-union ‘right-to-work laws’: here.
TRUMP CAMPAIGN TO REPORT $30 MILLION HAUL Trump’s reelection campaign is set to report that it raised more than $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, more than his top two Democratic rivals combined. The haul brings the campaign’s cash on hand to $40.8 million, an unprecedented war chest for an incumbent president this early in a campaign. [AP]
