Today we listen to a portion of a speech Bernie Sanders gave yesterday afternoon at Georgetown University, in which he explains the meaning of “Democratic Socialism”, comparing the political ideology to the policies of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. During the hour long speech, he also decried growing income inequality, monied interests in government and bank bail-outs as socialism for the rich.
