Sanders on a difference with Warren
In this clip he quotes Warren as being a "capitalist in her bones." Bernie thinks that capitalism is part of the problem and that we need a total transformation of the system away from capitalism. Warren instead wants to work within that system. It's really a difference between transformation and reform. The capitalistic system at this point is so grievously unequal and unfair that we really need to go beyond it. Sanders takes steps in the direction. Warren, while her reforms are good, doesn't go all the way to the root of capitalism itself.
