Clinton: I’m Tougher on Wall Street than Sanders
Hillary Clinton said on Sunday that she was tougher on Wall Street than her opponent Bernie Sanders.
“I have the toughest, most effective campaign plan to take on the entire financial industry,” Clinton said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“I don’t understand why he doesn’t join me, because it goes a lot further than anything he is proposing,” she added of Sanders.
The Hill reports:
The former secretary of State said the attack from the Sanders campaign accusing her of favoritism toward Wall Street “is really getting old.”
“They can’t point to anything,” she said. “They are grabbing at straws to make this case.”
Clinton also turned the tables on Sanders, pointing to a vote he cast to deregulate the financial industry, which she said fueled the Great Recession.
“But, let’s ask Senator Sanders’s campaign: Why did he vote to deregulate swaps and derivatives, one of the key reasons for Lehman Brothers being overleveraged, collapsing and bringing down the economy?” she said.
