Rangel: Sanders 'can't get it done'

New York Rep. Charles Rangel (D) acknowledged Monday that while he agrees with Bernie Sanders on some issues, he doesn't think the Independent Vermont senator would be an effective president.

"You bet your life ... except he can't get it done," the Democratic heavyweight, a supporter of Hillary Clinton, said during an interview on CNN's "New Day," mentioning a focus on big banks and immigration reform.


"With all due respect to Bernie Sanders, nobody can think of all of the years he's been in the House and Senate what he's ever done ... legislatively," Rangel said.

Rangel, who introduced Clinton at a campaign event Sunday in his home state of New York, also weighed in on video of Sanders supporters throwing a thousand $1 bills at Clinton's motorcade over the weekend as she arrived at actor George Clooney's house in Los Angeles for a high-dollar fundraising event.

"Isn't that stupid?" Rangel asked. "I think it's stupid. I think that they have money to throw away, literally, and that it's not changing anything."

Rangel then suggested that Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, "collect that money" to support efforts to elect Democrats.

"Maybe if he tried to get some Democrats instead of socialist Democrats elected, maybe it would help him and the country and the Democratic Party," Rangel said.


"If he thinks that he is going to become president, he ought to have more than one person in the Senate endorsing him," Rangel added.

3. Rangel stated the facts very plainly, Sanders apparently did not impress

Other Congressional members, it was Sanders choice and he made the wrong choice.

5. OUCH! That bern hurts! I agree with everything Rep. Rangel says here.

"collect that money to support efforts to elect Democrats".

I think that dollar bill stunt - throwing money away, is what Sanders supporters do best. Just send the losing cause $27 more to enrich Tad Devine.

9. Yes, I saw that here on DU a while back and forwarded it to some friends. It was March's FEC filing

of campaign expenses. Unbelievable. It's for Devine's company...how ever many are employed, but that is a huge amount of money per month.

7. I love Charlie Rangel.

He and Henry Gonzalez were policy twins-- dyed in the wool liberals, through and through.

14. KNR I was shocked when I looked into Sanders actual record

No leadership skills at all, and little accomplished that he put forward. Minimal bi-partisanship efforts. Just abysmal.
