During the CNN Democratic Presidential Debate, Hillary Clinton showed how she was going to play the “socialism card” against Bernie Sanders.
After Anderson Cooper attacked Bernie Sanders by suggesting that the United States would not vote for a socialist, Hillary jumped in with the following:
“COOPER: Just let me just be clear. Is there anybody else on the stage who is not a capitalist?
CLINTON: Well, let me just follow-up on that, Anderson, because when I think about capitalism, I think about all the small businesses that were started because we have the opportunity and the freedom in our country for people to do that and to make a good living for themselves and their families.
And I don’t think we should confuse what we have to do every so often in America, which is save capitalism from itself. And I think what Senator Sanders is saying certainly makes sense in the terms of the inequality that we have.
But we are not Denmark. I love Denmark. We are the United States of America. And it’s our job to rein in the excesses of capitalism so that it doesn’t run amok and doesn’t cause the kind of inequities we’re seeing in our economic system.
But we would be making a grave mistake to turn our backs on what built the greatest middle class in the history…
COOPER: Senator Sanders?
CLINTON: … of the world.”
