Sons of Liberty-This past weekend, Democrat presidential candidate “Bernie” Bernard Sanders (I-VT) made an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press to discuss the campaign with Chuck Todd.
During the course of their interview, Todd asked Sanders to talk about recent comments that House minority leader Nancy Pelosi made seeming to denigrate Sanders’ position on raising taxes. Pelosi argued that some of Bernie’s ideas were simply far-fetched, including his promise to raise everyone’s taxes and to move the nation to fully socialized, single-payer healthcare.
Here’s what Pelosi said:
“We’re not running on any platform of raising taxes,” Pelosi said during a press briefing to launch the Democrats’ yearly issues conference in Baltimore, Md. “We do want to have a fairer tax system, and … we hope that we can do that this year.”
