Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., had only a cameo appearance on Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story." For those who want more of Sanders' thoughts on the topic, go to "Senator Sanders Unfiltered
," his weekly online show.
Just a warning: when he says unfiltered, he means unfiltered. He does not pause. It's all pretty much one sentence for 4 minutes, 54 seconds. Nonetheless, the Internet is Sanders' perfect soap box.
A piece of it: "Capitalism does a lot of things that are well. ... On the other hand what we have had especially since the Reagan administration is an unfettered 'cowboy type capitalism,' which has ended up with the shrinking and decline of the middle class, a very significant increase in poverty and the reality that the people on top - the top 1 percent or 2 percent - are making out like bandits."
