Full transcript: Sen. Bernie Sanders on "Face the Nation"


June 23, 2019, 7:18 AM

The following is a transcript of the interview with Sen. Bernie Sanders that aired Sunday, June 23, 2019 on "Face the Nation."

MARGARET BRENNAN: Senator Sanders, thank you very much for making time.

SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS: My pleasure.

MARGARET BRENNAN: You've been called an existential threat to the Democratic Party. How much resistance within the party do you face?

SEN. SANDERS: Well first I've got to figure out what this existential threat actually means, but what it became from is "Third Way," which is the corporate wing of the Democratic Party, a group that gets a lot of its money from Wall Street, and I guess I am an existential threat to them because I believe that you've got to stand up for the working families of this country who have been decimated over the last forty five years. Wages have gone nowhere. Massive transfer of wealth from the middle class to the top one percent. And I'm going to stand with the working class of this country. And that means, so I guess "Third Way" doesn't like it. It means we are going to break up the major Wall Street banks that caused the last Great Recession and can do it again. We're going to take on the insurance companies and move toward a "Medicare-for-All" single payer program. We're going to take on the insurance- we're going to take on the drug companies and lower drug covered drug costs by about fifty percent in this country which is what the rest of the world is paying. And we're going to take on the fossil fuel industry and transform our energy system so that we can effectively combat climate change. Now I guess all of that is a threat to the big money interests in this country. And that's who "Third Way" represents.

MARGARET BRENNAN: But you're not a Democrat. You're- you're--

SEN. SANDERS: Well I am--

MARGARET BRENNAN: an independent.

2. I am watching the show.

 

This transcript is rubbish. What's happening on the screen is all out of whack, like they cut it all up and skipped parts.

3. They probably did edit the tape...

 

making the transcript of the full interview more relevant than what was broadcast.
