If Hillary is Wall Street's Insurance Policy...

what about Bernie and defense interests?

He's a trusted member of the veterans committee and I don't see him identifying the DOD as wasteful.

2. Lol! Oh but he does and also supports cutting Defense funding.

You just haven't been paying attention.

Not to mention there's big differences between supporting veterans and supporting DoD (2 different animals, and between supporting Veterans vs supporting Wall Street ( let's be clear, that'S what Hillary does).

6. Bernie is saying more things that we know given the media refusal to cover substantive issues

I had not actually seen any of those videos, but I saw your comment and thought knowing what I know about Bernie, there is no chance he hasn't spoken on waste in the Department of Defense. So I went to YouTube, put in a couple of terms and there it was. Those were only the first 3 videos. My guess is that there is similar stuff going back over the last couple of decades.
